How do I know if BBL is right for me?

You may enjoy being in the sun, and while you try to be diligent with sun protection, you often forget to apply sunscreen and moisturizer.

Over time your skin may tan or even burn, and dark spots begin to appear because of the following:

  • Age
  • Hormones
  • Acne Scarring
  • Environmental factors

Your aesthetic specialist will create a personalized BBL Laser treatment plan for you during your consultation. Some skin conditions such as rosacea and severe sun damage may require additional treatments.

Am I a Good Candidate for BBL?

The Broadband Light Laser therapy works best on light complexions. Tanned or darker complexions can be at risk of pigmentation changes. However, BBL Laser treatments can be used on all areas of the body. It is always best to discuss your concerns with your aesthetic specialist during your consultation. It's vital to discuss your health history during your consultation because if you are prone to breakouts from cold sores or the herpes virus, your aesthetic specialist can provide you with antiviral medication to avoid flare-ups. Four weeks before your BBL laser treatment, avoid the following:

  • Waxing
  • Tanning
  • Chemical peels
  • Retinol products

It's important to plan your treatment during a time when your exposure to the sun is minimized so your skin can heal properly at least two to four weeks after your treatment.

BBL Procedure

After your skin is cleansed, topical numbing cream or ice packs are applied to help alleviate any discomfort.

The BBL handheld laser device will use rapid bursts of high-intensity light to stimulate and regenerate your skin cells. Depending on the size of the area you are having treated, your procedure will last from five to 30 minutes.

BBL Recovery

After your procedure, your aesthetic specialist will apply moisturizer and sunscreen to soothe and protect your skin. You may look sunburned for two to four hours after your treatment. You can apply makeup and return to your daily activities if you need to, but you will be sensitive to sunlight for four weeks, so it's vital to apply sunscreen continuously.

Additional Reading

You can expect to see redness immediately following treatment, and it may feel like a sunburn. Depending on the intensity of your treatment, there may be swelling for a day or two. If you have brown spots treated, those areas will turn darker and peel off in seven to 14 days.

BBL Results

Within two weeks, you will see a noticeable difference in your skin. It should feel softer and smoother, and any redness will have disappeared. Subsequent sessions may be scheduled for you to continue your treatment plan.
