Broadband Light Therapy (BBL)

Over time, the skin on your face is damaged due to sun exposure, harsh cleaners and the elements. This can result in a dull, wrinkled appearance. Broadband Light Therapy (BBL) uses technology to turn back the clock, reverse sun damage and correct a host of imperfections.

The Science

The way BBL works is Intense Pulsed Light is delivered in a wide flash rather than a concentrated laser beam. This allows the light energy to spread out across the surface area of the skin, where it heats up the dermal layers and stimulates collagen production. The wavelength can be varied, allowing the device to be used to address a range of skin concerns.

The Procedure

This treatment typically lasts between 15-45 minutes. Patients will feel a sensation of heat or a “rubber band snap” accompanied by a bright light, but most do not describe the procedure as painful.

Post Treatment

Pinkness and mild swelling of the treated area is a possibility but typically improves significantly within hours of treatment. Brown spots may appear darker for up to a week before fading to reveal a brighter, more even skin tone.
