When their skin begins to look dull or uneven, many people turn to over-the-counter moisturizers, exfoliants, and serums that promise rejuvenation. However, these products may not be enough to achieve the desired results.
With BroadBand Light (BBL™) therapy technology, Dr. Wesley Anne Brady at the Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas is proud to offer a photofacial treatment that rejuvenates the skin, eliminates imperfections, and reverses signs of aging through a quick and simple process.
With several different platforms, BBL manufacturer Sciton also makes it easy for our patients to clear stubborn acne with Forever Clear BBL, remove unwanted hair with Forever Bare BBL, treat signs of aging with Forever Young BBL, and more. Explore your options.
What Is BroadBand Light Therapy?
BroadBand Light therapy involves the use of intense pulsed light, which creates a warming effect when absorbed by the skin, prompting the skin to create new cells while getting rid of dull, textured, uneven skin in the process. This treatment delivers excellent photorejuvenation results to patients looking to improve and refresh the appearance of their skin.
Are There Different Types of BBL Laser Treatment?
The BBL platform delivers several different cosmetic treatments, including:
- Forever Young BBL: An anti-aging service for reducing wrinkles, sun damage, and more.
- Forever Clear: An acne-fighting treatment that targets bacteria.
- Forever Barre: An effective hair removal for permanent hair reduction.
- BBL Body: An all-over treatment for stubborn cosmetic concerns on the body.
Our office also offers the MicroLaser Peel and ProFractional from Sciton for resurfacing and rejuvenation. Talk to our team about combining treatments to build your perfect plan.
What Conditions Can BBL Therapy Treat?
BBL therapy can treat a number of skin conditions, from early signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, to those that are a result of environmental factors, such as sun damage. This treatment can also reduce the appearance of discolored acne scarring, unwanted pigmentation, and uneven skin tone. By eliminating redness, BBL therapy can also lighten the appearance of skin conditions like rosacea.
Who Is a Candidate for BBL Therapy Treatment?
The ideal candidates for BBL therapy are adults looking to improve the overall complexion of their skin. It works best on patients with fair to medium skin tones. This treatment can also benefit patients interested in tightening their skin for a more youthful appearance. Patients who have rosacea or active acne may also be great candidates.
On the other hand, it may not be right for patients who have more pronounced skin imperfections, such as deep wrinkles or indented acne scars. Patients who have darker skin pigmentation may also not be suitable for this treatment as it may cause scarring or pigmentation in the treated areas.
What Does BBL Therapy Treatment Feel Like?
BBL therapy isn’t typically painful, but most patients describe the sensation of the intense pulsed laser as a rubberband snapping quickly against the skin. Patients may feel slight discomfort when the treatment is applied to more sensitive areas. However, BBL therapy’s cooling technology supports quick and gentle appointments.
How Long Do the Results from BBL Therapy Last?
Because the skin is constantly replacing itself, more than one BBL Therapy treatment is usually recommended for patients looking to eliminate the appearance of their skin imperfections. In general, results from this procedure can last up to three to four months. Patients should commit to wearing sunscreen daily, avoid prolonged periods in the sun, and invest in a good skin care regimen to prolong their results. Maintenance treatments can also help.
How Often Will I Need BBL Therapy Treatment?
The number of BBL Therapy treatments a patient needs will depend on their current skin condition and overall skin goals. Patients who are looking to rejuvenate and even out their skin tone may benefit from three treatments. However, a patient looking to reduce the appearance of rosacea redness may need six treatments before seeing great results. Dr. Brady and her expert team will help you determine the number of treatments that will benefit you most based on your skin goals.
