Few things can make a person look more attractive than smooth, vibrant skin. However, the natural aging process tends to be detrimental to the health and complexion of our skin, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and various other imperfections. If you’re unsatisfied with your skin’s appearance and/or texture, BBL laser treatment may be the solution you’re looking for.

What Is BBL Laser Treatment?

BBL (BroadBand Light) laser treatment, also known as BBL photofacial, is a cosmetic treatment used to revitalize the skin, reduce signs of aging, and treat various cosmetic issues.

How Does BBL Laser Treatment Work?

BBL laser treatment uses a specialized device to deliver flashes of intense pulsed light to the skin. This light penetrates the skin, destroying pigmented skin cells and sealing off superficial blood vessels. This triggers the body’s natural healing process, which results in new, healthy skin cells being generated. The BBL treatment process also stimulates the body’s collagen production, which leads to long-term improvements in the health and complexion of the skin.

Where Can BBL Laser Treatment Be Done?

BBL laser treatment can be performed virtually anywhere on the body. Some of the most common treatment areas include:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Hands

Benefits of BBL Laser Treatment

BBL laser treatment can offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Smoother, firmer, more youthful-looking skin
  • Reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging skin
  • Effectively treats skin issues like rosacea, sun damage, broken blood vessels, and many others
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Non-invasive treatment
  • Increased collagen production
  • Long-lasting results
  • Minimal recovery downtime

What Should I Expect During the Treatment?

If you think a BBL photofacial may be right for you, you can start the process by sitting down for a quick consultation with Dr. Arroyo. He’ll talk with you about the treatment and answer all of your questions. The doctor will also want to know about your cosmetic goals, medical history, and current health to ensure that you’re a good candidate for the procedure.

BBL laser treatment is generally performed as an outpatient procedure. To begin, a topical anesthetic will likely be applied to your skin in the targeted area. You may also be equipped with protective eyewear. Dr. Arroyo will then carefully run the BBL device over your skin in the area you’re having treated. You may feel a slight warming sensation, but there shouldn’t be significant pain. In total, the procedure should take under an hour, and you can return home as soon as it’s finished.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

Most patients are able to resume their normal routines right away after BBL laser treatment. Dr. Arroyo will provide you with instructions to ensure that your skin heals properly. For example, you may need to avoid direct sunlight for several days after your treatment.

Am I a Candidate for BBL Laser Treatment?

Adults who would like to rejuvenate their skin could be good candidates for BBL laser treatment. Ideal candidates for the treatment should:

  • Be in generally good health
  • Have a lighter skin tone
  • Have the desire to reduce signs of aging skin
  • Have the desire to treat cosmetic skin issues
  • Have realistic expectations for the treatment
  • Not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding

How Long Will It Take To See Results After BBL Laser Treatment?

You may start to see improvements to your skin immediately after BBL treatment, but the full results will appear gradually as your body increases its collagen production. Some patients may need multiple BBL treatments to achieve optimal results. The effects of the treatment should last for at least three or four months, and they can sometimes last for a year or longer.
