BBL™ BroadBand Light
Broadband light therapy or BBL is a ground-breaking cosmetic procedure that uses light energy to enhance the appearance of the skin. This innovative treatment is now available at Visage Skin Care Center for our patients that would like to improve their skin and treat a variety of skin conditions without surgery. BBL Atlanta offers yet another effective choice for men and women in search of cosmetic procedures that offer excellent results without discomfort and little downtime.
About BBL™ BroadBand Light
BBL gently heats the surface of the skin to reduce the appearance of vascular lesions, age spots and other types of pigmentation irregularities. It can also provide long-lasting anti-aging benefits, due to its ability to stimulate the body’s own collagen production. BBL effectively restores skin to its youthful state of health and vitality, while minimizing minor blemishes that can take their toll on your appearance.
Candidates for BBL™ BroadBand Light
Dr. Robinson may recommend BBL to his patients for the following concerns:
- Hyperpigmentation such as age spots and freckles
- Vascular lesions and facial veins
- Uneven skin texture and tone
- Sun damage and early signs of aging
BBL is appropriate for most skin tones and can be performed on adult patients of any age. The procedure may be performed alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures like injectable treatments to further enhance results.
BBL is a non-invasive procedure, which means it does not involve any incisions, anesthesia or recovery time. A handheld device is used to deliver light energy to the skin, which involves minimal discomfort. Patients report a warm sensation as the light penetrates the skin to work in the lower layers of tissue. Most BBL treatments take just a few minutes to complete, unless the treatment area is large (like the back) or multiple treatment areas are to be addressed in a single treatment session.
Recovery & Results
There is minimal downtime required after a BBL treatment, so you can return to your daily schedule as soon as the procedure is over. Skin may appear slightly red immediately following treatment, but this typically subsides within a few hours. Pigmentations treated with the device will often darken in the days following the procedure, before flaking away from the skin completely. You will notice your skin feels firmer and smoother, while enlarged pores and fine lines will be visible reduced. Regular BBL treatments are usually recommended to achieve the best possible results, with treatment sessions spaced a number of months apart.
BBL treatment is now available at Visage Skin Care Center, a division of Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery to provide our patients with yet another effective option in non-surgical skin enhancement.
