Phototherapy BBL BroadBand Light
Treatments tailored for you
BBL™ BroadBand Light therapy is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, pigmentation, and sun damage.
BBL BroadBand Light energy allows the provider to precisely treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your treatment will be customized to match your skin type and your desired results.
Any area of the body can benefit from a BBL BroadBand Light treatment. The most commonly treated areas are those exposed to the damaging effects of the sun. These include face, neck, chest, shoulders, and the back of the hands.
Treats these common conditions:
▪ Pigmented lesions (e.g., freckles, age spots)
▪ Acne scarring vascular lesions (e.g., small blood vessels)
▪ Skin Laxity
▪ Uneven skin tone
How does it work?
The light energy delivered by the BBL BroadBand Light will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen foundation, leading to increased skin firmness. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant, and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.
