Common Questions About Broadband Light
What will Broadband Light treat?
On the superficial level, BBL may treat acne, freckles and age spots. Deeper issues such as vascular lesions, rosacea and cherry angiomas may also be treated. Additional benefits include powerful yet gentle hair removal, and skin-tightening through collagen renewal.
How is Broadband Light treatment conducted?
The handheld BBL device is passed over your treatment areas. Anesthetic is typically not needed, but a topical anesthetic may be applied for some more sensitive areas. Depending on the size of the treatment area, BBL treatment takes 10-30 minutes.
How comfortable is Broadband Light?
The BBL treatment device includes a built-in cooling system. This helps regulate your skin temperature to ensure the most comfortable experience. Patients report a warm sensation similar to a repeated rubber band snap.
What will happen after my Broadband Light treatment?
During your appointment, we will disciuss your BBL aftercare steps in depth. You'll need to avoid direct sun exposure until your skin has fully healed. There may be some slight redness or swelling immediately after treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Most skin conditions are addressed with 2-5 treatment sessions based on the specific condition. These treatment sessions are spaced 2-4 weeks apart. Additional treatments may be used for more serious conditions.
