BBL Overview: How Does It Work?

Broadband light works by delivering energy to gently heat your upper skin layers. These treatment areas then absorb the heat, encouraging your body’s natural rejuvenating response. The cells get a boost that allows for new collagen production, resulting in tighter, firmer skin. At the same time, it evens out skin tone to achieve an overall smoother appearance that looks and feels younger. This light energy also targets troublesome, visible veins, reducing them along with other causes of skin redness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Be a Candidate for BBL Treatment?

The odds are that you certainly can. This gentle light treatment is ideal for a wide range of patients, especially those who want a less intensive treatment plan.

What Can I Expect During a Treatment Session?

We start with safety first, always. We give you protective glasses to cover your eyes. From start to finish, your treatment can last from minutes to an hour, depending on the number of areas you want covered. During your consultation, we can provide additional details once we develop your personal treatment plan.

The treatment itself works through safe and gentle delivery of broadband light to your target areas. Most of the time, patients do not even need a numbing cream and are comfortable. However, we can provide some gentle numbing for patients with more sensitive skin or while treating sensitive areas (such as the face).

Your number of treatments needed will depend on your goals and can be discussed with Dr. Lombardi to build your unique plan. You can also combine BBL with other laser center treatments and non-surgical options to unlock a further personalized, radiant outcome.

What Can I Expect After Treatment?

After treatment, some minor redness is normal, but usually goes away within a couple of hours. If you are treating pigment concerns, it is normal to have some initial darkening followed by flaking. But the new skin will reveal a more even tone. After each treatment, you should see continued improvements as you progress through your treatment plan.

We also provide important instructions for treatment aftercare. These help boost your results and reduce any possible skin irritation. Instructions include tips such as which skincare products to use and avoiding UV light and sunlight until you heal.

As a non-invasive treatment, BBL generally does not require any real downtime. Instead, you can get right back to your life often within a day and even resume wearing makeup.
