If you have been searching for a non-surgical and non-invasive method by which you can combat those frustrating mild to moderate signs of facial aging, BBL (also known as broadband light) may very well be the perfect solution for you!
Experience Non-Surgical Anti-Aging
As we age, it’s perfectly normal to notice a loss of luster and youthful qualities in our skin. If you’ve noticed that you’ve started to develop areas of hyperpigmentation, freckles where you don’t necessarily want them, or so-called “age spots,” you’re absolutely not alone. Patients who are interested in a quick, easy, and highly effective way to non-surgically turn back the clock and restore a more youthful and lustrous appearance to their skin can now enjoy the power of broadband light, here at Laser Clinique.
Thanks to highly advanced technology, the broadband light treatment creates impressive results with a delightfully minimal downtime, so you can enjoy the look you’d prefer without having to carve a large chunk of time out of your active daily schedule. To learn more about how BBL can help you, simply reach out to our office and set up your consultation today.
When to Consider BBL Treatment
One of the nice things about BBL is that it’s impressively versatile, and can help you address a wide range of issues related to the aging of your skin and face. During your consultation, of course, we’ll get to know your specific aesthetic concerns. No two patients are alike, so we take the time to get to know everyone who comes through our doors, so we can create bespoke treatment plans that are tailored directly to the needs of our guests.
You’re more than likely to be a great candidate for the BBL treatment if you’re interested in addressing:
- Sun damage
- Acne scarring
- Age spots
- Visible blood vessels
- Visible pores
Preparing for Your Broadband Light Treatment
During your consultation visit, we’ll make sure that you have very thorough instructions on how to get ready for your upcoming BBL session. We’ll answer any questions that you may have about the procedure, so you can experience total peace of mind as you get ready to look forward to your incredible results.
Here are some of the ways that you may be asked to prepare for your broadband light treatment session:
- We’ll ask that you discontinue the use of any makeups, lotions, or cosmetic products in general (this includes moisturizers and other products, as well) the day before your procedure, so we can work on your skin when it’s fresh and clear.
- For about two weeks before your first BBL appointment, you’ll need to avoid as much direct sun exposure as you possibly can. You’ll also need to steer clear of tanning beds and any other means of artificial tanning.
- If you’re using any kind of products that lighten your skin, such as retinol products or hydroquinone, you’ll need to avoid them for 24 hours before your procedure.
- Any antibiotics or medications that are considered photosensitive will need to be discontinued two weeks before your procedure date.
The Day of Your BBL Procedure
Before you get started, we’ll make sure that you’re comfortable and ask you if you have any remaining questions about your procedure. For the most part, our guests enjoy their BBL treatment in total comfort, and any uncomfortable sensation you experience should be quite mild. We’ll be more than happy to help you with a topical numbing cream.
During your treatment, the applicator will be passed over the designated treatment area, and different wavelengths of intense pulsed light (or IPL) will be delivered into your skin. This light energy can be specified in a way that enables us to treat the exact issues that you brought through our doors, with an exceptional level of precision and effectiveness.
As the layers of your skin are heated, they tighten and constrict, restoring a more youthful appearance and eliminating the presence of surface-level fine lines and wrinkles. Simultaneously, laser energy helps clear away issues like hyperpigmentation and sunspots, while collagen and elastin production is encouraged as well.
Your Incredible Results
Immediately after your treatment, you may be mildly surprised to notice that certain lesions and pigmented areas can actually appear darker in color, but this will only be temporary. After the first day or two, they will start to fade as you begin to notice your true results.
For the first few days after your treatment, you’ll experience something similar to a relatively mild sunburn: your skin will be a bit red and slightly swollen, and you’ll experience a bit of tingling here and there.
We’ll give you detailed aftercare instructions when your treatment is over, as there will be certain behaviors and products that you’ll need to avoid (like hot or cold water, for example) for a certain amount of time after your procedure.
We find that most patients feel comfortable resuming their daily routines within two to three days, with the full results setting in over the course of one to two weeks, as your skin fully heals. Optimal results are seen with three treatments, each spaced about one month apart.
