What is the Difference Between BBL and IPL?

Perfect and clean skincare wearing natural makeup. When rejuvenating your skin and treating a wide range of issues, RedermMD gives clients like you choices because no two complexions are the same. Two top treatments include intense-pulsed light (IPL) and broadband light (BBL) therapy, but which is right for you? Find out more by reading on.

BBL (BroadBand Light)

BroadBand Light (BBL) therapy is a type of light therapy that uses a broad spectrum of light to improve the appearance of the skin. BBL therapy can help reduce the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, and other skin concerns.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is a type of light therapy that uses a narrower spectrum of light to improve the appearance of the skin. IPL therapy can reduce the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, and other skin concerns.

BBL vs. IPL: What’s The Difference?

BroadBand Light (BBL) therapy and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy are both types of light therapy that can help improve the appearance of the skin. BBL therapy uses a broad spectrum of light to target multiple areas of the skin, while IPL therapy uses a narrower spectrum of light to target specific areas of the skin. Both therapy types can help improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, and other skin concerns.

With IPL, you have a single, focused beam of light (intense), while with BBL, you have multiple light wavelengths (broadband). The IPL treatment is better suited to treating a very specific area of skin, whereas the BBL treatment is good for treating a broader range of skin conditions.

Which Is Better For Me?

The best type of light therapy for you will depend on your specific skin concerns. BBL therapy may be a good option for you if you have multiple skin concerns. IPL therapy may be a good option for you if you have specific skin concerns.
