Phototherapy BroadBand Light (BBL)

When people try to guess your age, in most cases the first thing they notice is your face. It’s also one of the main areas of your body that gives away your age. After years of unprotected sun exposure, using the wrong products on your skin, and the inevitable aging process, your skin may look worn out. But, there’s still hope with Phototherapy Broadband Light (BBL).

What is Phototherapy BroadBand Light (BBL)?

Phototherapy BroadBand Light (BBL) is a new technology that uses light energy to treat skin issues with sun damage, age spots, and redness in the skin.

How does Phototherapy Broadband Light (BBL) work?

BBL uses light energy to gently heat the upper layers of the skin. The heat is absorbed by the targeted area which stimulates cell regeneration and new collagen.  The procedure is gentle, noninvasive, and safe. During the procedure, your eyes will be covered for safety while a sensation like a rubber band snap will commence as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. To avoid discomfort numbing cream can be applied to the area being treated for patients who find the treatment uncomfortable, but in most cases it’s unnecessary.

Phototherapy Broadband Light (BBL) will leave your skin restored to its natural beauty giving a smooth, vibrant and younger looking appearance.

What skin conditions does BBL treat?

  • Pigmented Lesions on the face (freckles, and age spots)
  • Vascular Lesion on the face (facial veins)
  • Acne
  • Skin Firmness
  • Uneven Skin Texture
  • Unwanted Hair

What areas of the skin can be treated with BBL?

This treatment is universal and can be used on any area of the body. However, for the most part, it’s used to on the face, neck, back of hands, chest, and shoulders.
