What are BBL photofacial treatments?
These treatments use broadband light (BBL) to target and treat sun damage, rosacea, age spots, and other issues with the skin. Treatments can help restore the skin to a more youthful appearance by making it smoother, clearer, and more vibrant, and this appearance boost is the main benefit of BBL photofacial treatments.
Some patients have BBL treatments done to treat dark pigmentation issues like age spots or freckles, while other patients get treatments done to address issues like redness, rosacea, facial veins, aging skin, uneven skin texture, and/or skin laxity (infirmness). If you have any of these skin issues, you could easily be a good candidate for treatment! Also, just about any area of the body can be treated, as BBL procedures are very versatile!
How do BBL photofacial treatments work?
With BBL photofacial treatments, light energy is delivered precisely into problem areas of the skin, which gently heats the upper layers of the skin and stimulates the skin cells to regenerate in the area. The process generates new, healthier cells in the area and thus new, healthier skin! When treating dark spots and pigmentation issues, the BBL penetrates the skin to reach the pigment. When targeting redness in a particular area of the skin, the BBL is absorbed by blood vessels in the area, and this causes them to close.
Is a BBL photofacial painful?
The procedure isn’t very uncomfortable for patients, and they usually experience a warming/slight burning sensation in the treated area. More sensitive areas might be a bit more painful, but for most patients, the pain is minimal. Prior to a treatment, a topical anesthetic (a cooling gel) can be applied, which will make it more comfortable for most patients.
After a treatment, a patient might feel a sensation of a sunburn in the treated area, but this is generally mild, so it won’t stop the patient from being able to return to his or her regular activities very soon.
What are the benefits of BBL photofacial treatments?
There are a ton of benefits of getting BBL treatments done! The process of aging, as well as unprotected sun exposure and harsh facial cleansers, can do a number on your skin, causing wrinkles and making it look dull. BBL treatments can reverse these issues significantly. Also, BBL is entirely noninvasive, so it’s very safe, especially when you compare it to surgery and even some minimally invasive procedures out there. And finally, several days after a treatment, you’ll start to notice healthier, more vibrant skin, and any age spots or other issues that were treated will be greatly diminished!
