BBL is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles, and sun damage. BBL energy allows your physician to precisely treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results.

What areas can be treated?
Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of hands, chest and shoulders.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and your physician may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
What will happen during the procedure?
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields of glasses. You may briefly feel a warm or “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half and hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. Your physician will discuss all of your options with you.
What should I expect after the treatment?
Frequently Asked Questions
Is this procedure uncomfortable?
The procedure is gentle, noninvasive, and safe. Generally there is no need for a topical anesthetic; however, your physician may choose to use it on more sensitive areas.
What is the recovery time?
This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of your activities immediately.
What aftercare do I need?
You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
