What is BroadBand Light (BBL) Laser Treatment?

BroadBand Light (BBL) also referred to as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or photorejuvenation is a laser procedure that involves the delivery of a mix of visible and infrared light energy onto the skin to encourage the regeneration of skin cells and enhance overall skin wellness.

Multiple BBL sessions customized to an individual’s skin type and desired outcomes are typically recommended. The procedure is gentle, requires downtime and has been approved by the FDA for purposes.

How Does BBL Work?

BBL treatment involves using beams that go beneath the skin creating heat to trigger the bodys natural healing mechanisms. This process helps in producing collagen and elastin which results in more looking skin.

During a BBL session gentle bursts of light are directed onto the skin. The light is absorbed by areas like:

  • Pigmented spots (like sun spots or age spots): The light works to break down melanin, the pigment, for these spots reduces their visibility.
  • Broken blood vessels: The targeted light helps in clotting these vessels making them less noticeable.
  • Bacteria causing acne: BBL disrupts the bacteria that lead to breakouts promoting skin.
