What is Broadband Light (BBL™)?
BBL™ BroadBand Light is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device on the market. It sets new standards in treating skin conditions associated with aging, active lifestyles, and sun damage. BBL™ has the ability to provide dermal renewal, permanent hair reduction, and the treatment of pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, and acne.
We can achieve significant skin improvements non-invasively with BBL™. It uses broad-spectrum visible and infrared light to selectively heat layers of skin, getting rid of undesired pigmentation, redness, and other unwanted conditions. The system delivers a combination of flexibility, speed, patient comfort, and efficiency.
What can Broadband Light treat?
BBL™ BroadBand Light enables the treatment of multiple skin conditions. Such as:
- Pigmented Lesions, such as freckles & age spots
- Vascular Lesions, such as cherry angiomas, telangiectasias, and rosacea
- Deeper Lesions / Darker Skin Types
- Hair Removal
With the broadest range of wavelengths, we can personalize treatments to fit each patient’s needs. BBL™ requires fewer treatments to achieve visible and superior results than other IPL systems.
Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin’s condition and your desired results. Often, one treatment will achieve amazing results, however, up to 3-5 treatments may be necessary for certain skin types and conditions. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of the procedure performed. After your treatment, your skin may be dry and light sensitive and must be kept clean & moisturized and, of course, use sunscreen.
What is the Recovery from BroadBand Light Treatment?
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. Consult your clinician if it does not. For some spots, you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Results depend on your skin type, the number of treatments, and the area treated.
This is a non-invasive and typically gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work and resume most of your activities immediately.
