BroadBand Light (BBL) technology has given our team the ability to help countless patients who are struggling with severe skin blemishes, including acne & rosacea. This FDA-approved procedure is not only extremely safe, but it also has a very high success rate. It is an excellent option for patients of all ages who are finally ready to be confident in their own skin.
Understanding Skin Blemishes
Skin blemishes, such as acne & rosacea, are often quite complex and can be attributed to any number of internal or external factors. In addition to your genetics and hormones, they can also be caused by many of the lifestyle choices you make. This includes the foods you eat, any beauty products you use and the environmental toxins you are exposed to every day. Unfortunately, many patients continue to struggle with these conditions no matter what changes they make in their own life. Options such as BBL therapy are often the only way to provide long-term relief.
BroadBand Light Technology
We have known for years that exposure to certain forms of light energy can have a profound impact on our skin. Staying out in the sun for a long period of time creates a deep tan in some individuals while it burns others. After years of exhaustive research, scientists were able to narrow down exactly what forms of light could be used within the medical field, and that includes BBL.
When our skin is exposed to concentrated BroadBand Light for a short period of time, it triggers a number of different reactions. The first thing it does is stimulate the production of a protein known as collagen. This particular protein is a building block of healthy skin and protects us from many different forms of damage. By stimulating the production of collagen, your skin will naturally heal many of your blemishes. BBL therapy also destroys some the bacteria that gets caught in pores and leads to permanent acne scars.
What Does BBL Therapy Feel Like?
We meet with all of our patients well before their first treatment session to give them more information about this procedure and what they can expect during their own appointment. As a general rule, each session should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete. Due to the cooling technology that is housed in these devices, most patients feeling nothing more than gentle warmth on their skin during the treatment.
Depending on the severity of the blemishes, most patients need a series of weekly treatments. After those initial sessions are complete, they will need to schedule touch-up appointments every few months to prevent the blemishes from coming back.
