    BBL Treatment

    BBL is a type of laser therapy used to enhance and brighten your complexion by treating skin concerns and stimulating production of collagen. BBL treats age spots, sun damage, redness, broken facial vessels, wrinkles and dull skin. It can also reduce the appearance of freckles and birthmarks. The treatment can be performed on all body areas, such as the face, neck, chest, arms and hands.

    BBL Treatment Overview

    The BBL laser treatment helps to make skin look clearer, firmer, more even, and more youthful. It can help to  improve many conditions associated with aging such as hyperpigmentation, redness, facial vessels, and loss of elasticity. It can also minimize acne, rosacea, and unwanted hair growth.

    What BBL does

    BBL delivers light energy to gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. In addition, the light energy penetrates deep into the skin to boost your body’s natural ability to fight the appearance of aging. The result? Skin that’s naturally beautiful and visibly younger looking, year after year!

    How to prepare for BBL

    Use sunscreen and physical sun protection. Avoid extended sun exposure, i.e. beach, travel to sunny locations, sunbathing, sports outdoors. Inform your BBL clinician if any physician has ordered Accutane for you in the last 6 months. Inform your doctor of any medical conditions or medications you are taking that might sensitize you to light, affect wound healing or affect coagulation.

    What to expect from BBL

    You can expect a moderate amount of heat while the laser is treating. The skin will be prepped with a numbing agent for 20-30 minutes prior to service. Post-treatment, the skin will be hot, maybe swollen and will start to feel a bit of sandpaper to the skin. This texture is completely normal and is called MENDS (microscopic epidermal necrotic debris). This is the actual peeling process but is at a microscopic level. This way you will not see any visible peeling, but will feel it. The pigmentation will appear darker during the 7-10 day healing and this is a completely normal expectation. After the 7-10 days the skin will appear brighter, tighter and more even!

    Post Care Notes 

    • You may experience some redness in the treatment area that should resolve within a few hours.
    • You may notice darkening of your pigmented spots, followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage.
    • There is virtually no downtime after this non-invasive and gentle procedure. In most cases, you are able to apply make-up, return to work and resume most of your activities immediately.
    • Cleanse the skin two times a day with plain, lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser. Use your hands and fingertips to cleanse using gentle patting motions. DO NOT rub, scrub, use an exfoliant soap or skin care brush, e.g. Clarisonic in the treated area.
    • Moisturizer should be applied generously with clean hands over treated area and reapplied whenever your skin feels dry.
    • Sunscreen is a MUST and should be used daily beginning the day of treatment and used consistently. Use sunscreen with Broadband UVA and UVB protection and a SPF of at least 30. Ensure to reapply during sun exposure. DO NOT expose your skin to direct sun exposure for 14 days. The treated area is more prone to sunburn and pigmentation change.
