When you look in the mirror, you want to feel great about your appearance. When you are unhappy with what you see, you usually don’t feel that great about yourself, and this can seriously affect your personal relationships, your career and your energy level. Of course, everyone has to deal with the aging process. This includes fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and the loss of facial volume.
At times, you may look in the mirror and not feel happy with your appearance, but you cannot really pinpoint the reason why. You do not have many wrinkles and your face may be as full as it used to be. The problem may be dull skin. This can make you look lifeless, tired and even like you are dealing with an illness. Thankfully, there are ways to rejuvenate your appearance. BBL™, or BroadBand Light, therapy can be just the thing that can help you to look rejuvenated, refreshed and rested.
The great thing about this treatment is that you will not have to deal with any downtime. It is a non-invasive treatment that allows you to go back to normal activities as soon as the treatment has been finished. When you come in for a BBL™ treatment, the skin will not be broken, which means there is nothing to recover from. The treatment works by using photothermal energy to safely heat the deeper layers of the skin to encourage collagen production.
The vast majority of our patients only feel mild discomfort during the BBL™ treatment. Some individuals have compared what they feel during treatment to a rubber band being snapped against their skin.
While there is no downtime after the procedure, we will give you directions on how to take care of your skin after treatment. You will need to protect it from the sun, and you will also need to keep your skin moisturized.
Some individuals only need to come in for one treatment. However, the amount of sessions that you will require will depend on the reason you are requesting BBL™ therapy. For example, if you would just like to rejuvenate dull skin, then one treatment is likely all that is necessary. However, if you have severe rosacea, sun-damaged skin or flushing, then you may need to come in for a couple of treatments.
It is also important for you to understand that you need to continue to care for your skin after treatment. If you are dealing with sunspots or age spots that have come as a result of exposure to sunlight or tanning, these will return if you do not use sunscreen and take other steps to protect your skin.
Many of our patients return to our office to have BBL™ therapy done at least once a year. This helps them to have blemish-free, bright-looking skin. It’s a great way to improve your appearance and feel great about yourself.
