ABOUT BROADBAND LIGHT THERAPY
Broadband light (BBL) treatment uses regenerating technology to enhance the aesthetics of your skin and helps it to look more youthful and smoother. It works by employing therapeutic light energy that mildly warms the skin and initiates collagen production. Those with a variety of skin conditions can benefit from BBL because it works to correct sun damage, unwanted freckles, rosacea, and broken blood vessels. It can also help create a more even skin texture to generate fresh, glowing skin. BBL can be added to other aesthetic treatments to meet your requirements and goals. Additionally, Sciton BBL can be used for alternative treatments including laser hair removal with Forever Bare. BBL has been compared to IPL, though it is greatly enhanced. BBL was created to increase safety and overall results. Our practice, LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, TX and the surrounding areas, provides BBL at the recommendation of Dr. Melanie Carreon as an innovative therapy proven to help restore our patients’ confidence in their skin.
BBL Corrective is beneficial in the treatment of several skin concerns including age spots, freckles, small blood vessels, rosacea, acne, and skin laxity. Utilizing light energy, the BBL Corrective technology helps to activate the regeneration of skin cells for a healthier, clearer complexion.
FOREVER YOUNG BBL™
Forever Young BBL can be used to treat all areas of the body and works to diminish signs of aging through advanced light therapy. Through targeting sun damage, age spots, redness, and more, Forever Young offers effective results for more youthful skin.
FOREVER CLEAR BBL™
With the power of light energy, Forever Clear BBL uses an innovative two-step treatment process to help eradicate acne and the bacteria that causes it. Through the first step, blue BBL light is used to clean deep within the pores. With the second step, yellow BBL light works to decrease inflammation and redness for a more even complexion. SkinTyte II can also be added to the treatment process to help stimulate healing.
An ideal candidate for BBL is any patient suffering from hyperpigmentation or textured skin or is desiring hair removal options. This could be due to acne, sun damage, damaged capillaries, or rosacea. BBL also helps to make the skin appear younger by stimulating the regeneration of collagen. Depending on the type of modality and filter used, BBL can be used as both a treatment and/or maintenance regimen for a wide array of skin conditions. Before receiving treatment, Dr. Carreon and her team will explain how BBL technology might help achieve your desired results.
After developing a personalized treatment plan, the settings of the BBL device will be adjusted to fit the needs of your skin. Before beginning the procedure, your eyes will be covered to protect them from the light of the laser. Our Aesthetician will then gently pass the laser over your skin while concentrating on the problem areas. The amount of time needed for the treatment will vary, depending on the skin condition and if any other treatments were added to the BBL procedure. BBL procedures can typically be completed in about an hour or less.
IPL can also be used to help produce better results. Our licensed Aestheticians use IPL to heat the skin just enough to ignite the natural regeneration process and boost collagen production.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Following the treatment, a soothing cream will be applied to your skin. A member of our team will also give post-treatment care instructions and may advise limited sun exposure. Otherwise, patients are typically able to resume their normal daily routine. Results from BBL can be seen within 2 – 6 weeks following the initial treatment, but optimal results will typically be seen after multiple BBL treatments. We will provide the recommended number of treatments to receive your desired outcome.
