THE BBL broadband light for photorejuvenation
How does BBL Broadband Light work?
BBL technology utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent results in photorejuvenation therapy. The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently heat up the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen. This will help restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant, and younger looking. In addition the photothermal energy will target and eliminate unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions. Your skin will be smoother, more vibrant and it will have a more youthful appearance as a result. BBL is also the preferred and effective method for Laser Hair Reduction
What areas can be treated?

How many treatments will be needed?
From 2 to 5 treatments, at 2-4 week intervals, is the recommended amount. You may benefit from additional treatments depending on the severity of your condition. Your esthetician will discuss a plan with you for working on your problem areas.
What will happen during the procedure?

There should be minimal or no discomfort, however this will vary from patient to patient, and depends on the depth of the treatment. The procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. Your esthetician will discuss this with you during your consultation.
What should be expected after the treatment?
