Struggling with pigmentation and dull skin? The BBL laser treatment would be perfect for you. Other than hyperpigmentation, it is also commonly used to treat acne, rosacea, age spots, sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven tone and texture. This treatment is minimally invasive and requires no downtime. It can even be done anywhere on the face or body! Our clients love to pair this with the Immediate Post Care treatment for the ultimate glow after their session.
BBL™ (also known as Broad Band Light) is the next generation of intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy which is known as the “Gold Standard” treatment for reducing pigmentation and brightening the skin.
This customizable treatment addresses the “browns” (age spots, sun damage, freckles) and “reds” (rosacea and broken capillaries) which combined creates dull and aged skin. With BBL™, you target pigmentation to reveal brighter, younger looking skin – turning back the clock on your skin, literally.
How It Works
BBL™ emits broad-spectrum photo thermal energy (short blasts of high-intensity light), which is absorbed by brown pigment (melanin) in our skin and the blood vessels that cause redness.
The BBL™ light energy is delivered to the upper layers and heats the skin. Once the heat is absorbed, pigmented cells are destroyed and broken capillaries in the area are closed off. These little particles of brown pigment slough off in anywhere from 7-14 days. In the next several weeks, the body will absorb the destroyed blood vessels.
