BBL treatment is used to treat freckles, age spots, small blood vessels, and acne. It can also correct poor skin tone and uneven skin texture and is used to reduce unwanted hair. Patients who want to achieve improved skin firmness can also benefit from BBL treatments.
Any part of the body that is regularly exposed to sunlight can be treated with BBL. This includes the face, the neck, the back of the hands, the chest, and the back.
The BBL system works by gently and gradually heating the top layers of the skin. As the heat is absorbed, the skin is prompted to make new collagen, which results in improved skin condition overall. The photothermal energy, when targeted precisely, will reduce undesirable skin marks such as spider veins, freckles, and age spots. As the photothermal energy is directed into the skin mark, it will break the melanin apart, causing it to scatter and be absorbed back into the body harmlessly. Patients will wear safety glasses during the treatment for eye protection. There is often a mild warmth accompanied by a slight snapping sensation during the treatment, but it's rarely painful. For patients who have highly sensitive skin, a numbing cream can be applied before the treatment to alleviate any discomfort. In most patients, the BBL treatment will take half and hour or less, but this does vary depending upon the number of treatment areas and the size of the areas to be treated.
For most people, the effects of BBL treatment can be seen after one treatment. For optimum results, patients can schedule between 2 and 4 treatments each year. If patients have the treatment on a regular basis, they can maintain younger looking and smoother skin for the long term.
