All You Need to Know About BBL

You’ve probably seen us post a lot about BBL, but do you know what it actually does? Keep reading for a deep dive into what this classic treatment can do for your skin!

What is BBL?

BBL stands for BroadBandLight, which is a form of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). The BBL device sends quick pulses of light from a broad range of wavelengths to the upper layers of the skin. Pigment and vascular lesions are targeted as when the pigment absorbs the light, it will be effectively destroyed through the body’s natural healing processes. The skin’s healing processes will replace the targeted pigmented cells with new healthy cells.

What Is Our Favorite BBL?

BBL HERO (High Energy Rapid Output)/BBL+ is the gold standard of BBL. It has the ability to be used all over the body, not just the face, and works at 4x the speed, 3x the peak power and 2x the cooling for maximum patient comfort. It emits more energy in a short period of time, so it’s safer. Achievable results can be seen for the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and back.

What Can I Expect From BBL?

BBL is a gold standard resurfacing treatment that can help make your skin softer, clearer and smoother. The main goal is to fade the appearance of hyperpigmentation including sun damage, age spots, pigment, and more. It also improves the appearance of PIE (post inflammatory erythema) from acne marks, and improves Rosacea. 

BBL is a non‑ablative and gentle treatment that involves no discomfort or downtime. It’s normal to experience some redness after treatment. During treatment, you will feel slight pulses of warmth but it is almost completely painless. Treatment can take as little as 15‑20 minutes and results can be seen after as little as one treatment, with best results after 3‑4 treatments. Cumulative results can last a year or even longer.
