BBL® Laser Treatment Details

We Are Your Trusted BBL® Laser Experts

If you’ve never heard of BroadBand Light technology or BBL®, it is an innovative technology that helps to improve a range of skin conditions linked to aging, sun damage, and more. During a BBL® Photofacial, your experienced provider will use light energy to heat the top layers of your skin. Every treatment is customized to serve your skin type and to help you achieve your desired results.

Through precise BBL® in MN, our team only needs a few treatment sessions to help you achieve your results. There is no anesthesia required and you’ll need minimal downtime to recover. In addition, our board-certified dermatologists highly recommend regularly getting BBL® photo rejuvenation to improve your skin tone as it stimulates natural collagen production.

What Areas Can We Treat Using the BBL® Laser?

A major benefit of BBL® photofacial technology is how versatile it is, making it suitable for a range of skin concerns.

  • Birthmarks. BBL® laser treatment can lessen the appearance of colored birthmarks, most commonly red ones like port-wine stains, by targeting the pigment in the skin.
  • Hyperpigmentation. BroadBand Light therapy can take care of uneven skin tone and dark spots caused by age, hormonal changes, sun exposure, and healing wounds and acne.
  • Telangiectasia. Thanks to BBL®, you can make spider veins, the broken blood vessels that are close to the surface of the skin of your face, arms, and legs, a thing of the past.
  • Rosacea. If you’re experiencing rosacea or flare-ups of redness due to an increase in blood flow on the face, BBL® laser treatment might be the answer.
  • Acne, scarring, and enlarged pores. This treatment can trigger the healing process to help clear your acne and redness, reduce the look of large pores, and decrease the appearance of colored scarring.
  • Wrinkly hands. BBL® laser treatment increases collagen production, which helps to plump up the skin. This increased fullness and volume will smooth out wrinkles, crepiness, and skin laxity. It can also dramatically lighten and remove dark spots, giving your hands a more youthful appearance.

How Do We Perform BBL® Treatments?

Once we’ve worked with you to develop a customized treatment plan, we will adjust the settings of the BroadBand light treatment system to fit your needs. Before treatment begins, we will cover your eyes to keep them protected from the laser. From there, we will softly pass the laser on top of your skin, paying close attention to the problem areas. The treatment time itself is usually an hour or less depending on the issues that we address. Once your treatment is over, we will apply a soothing cream and provide you with any home-based care instructions. Most BBL® results are noticeable within 2-6 weeks of the first treatment. Our team will work with you to develop a plan to help you achieve your goals.

What Are the Benefits of the BBL® Laser?

BBL® technology is a safe, effective treatment for many skin conditions, and it is one of the quickest and most non-invasive treatments on the market. The sessions only take a few minutes and when you’re done, you’ll be able to return to your normal routine.

Here are some other benefits:

  • Effective results for any age
  • Non-medical
  • Long-lasting results
  • Restores skin texture and pigmentation
  • Repairs damaged skin
  • Highly effective and precise
  • Works anywhere on the body such as the face, neck, arms, chest, legs, hands, and feed
  • Most results are seen immediately.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

We start with 3 sessions and after that recommend 4 treatments per year for optimal maintenance. Generally, The more treatments, the better your skin will look. If you’re not satisfied with the look and feel of your skin after three sessions, discuss touch-up options or a maintenance schedule with your provider. Most people notice significant improvement after just 1-2 sessions!

How Long Does the Recovery Process Take After the Treatment?

Patients are happy to learn that BBL® laser downtime is minimal, and most are able to resume their normal activities almost immediately following the procedure. It’s possible to experience some redness right after the procedure, so make sure that you avoid excessive sun exposure once treatment is over. Other short-term side effects may include sunspots that become darker in the days following treatment, but this should go away after one week.

Frequently Asked Questions About BBL® Laser Treatment

How does BBL® laser work?

Essentially, the laser uses a broad spectrum of wavelengths on the skin and the skin then absorbs that light energy from the therapy. By targeting underlying layers of skin, as well as surface skin, facilitates collagen production while simultaneously reducing or eliminating darker skin cells (those that are pigmented due to excess melanin production). Collagen production will improve your skin’s elasticity.

Am I a candidate for a BBL® treatment?

Although BBL® treatments are suitable for many patients, those who have a history of a skin condition called melasma should inform us before treatment begins. In some cases, melasma becomes worse following this treatment. The ideal patient has a contrast between the colored lesions on their skin and their natural skin tone. Patients who use tanning beds regularly or have recently used self-tanner should let us know before treatment. Generally, we advise delaying treatment until the skin returns to its normal tone to prevent complications from occurring.

How do I prepare for a BBL® treatment?

Two weeks before your BBL® session, avoid waxing, tanning salons, or sunbathing. Don’t use self-tanning creams. We also recommend that you discontinue the use of Retinol one week prior to your treatment. On the day of your treatment, avoid using creams and lotions, just wash your face with a gentle cleanser, like our St. James Gentle Foaming Cleanser, before you arrive.

Are BBL® treatments painful?

BBL® Hero uses highly advanced cooling techniques to ensure that treatments are safe and quick and more comfortable. The frequency of light pulses and waves will be varied depending on the goals you and your esthetician have. Sometimes there may be small areas treated with a stronger pulse that has been described as feeling like a tiny rubber band snap.
