What is BBL™ Treatment Like?
At Juvanew Med Spa, we use the BBL™ HERO, which stands for Broadband Light High Energy Rapid Output. As the name suggests, this laser uses high-energy, extremely fast pulses to make treatment shorter and more comfortable.
Instead of an hour, treatment with the BBL™ HERO can last as little as half an hour. In addition, the BBL™ provider can customize the treatment to work for any skin type and tone, even darker tones that cannot safely use some other types of lasers. The system also uses CoolComfort technology to keep the skin comfortable during treatment.
During BBL™ treatment, your provider will move a handheld wand over the area of the body to be treated. While usually used on the face, BBL™ also works almost anywhere else on the body, especially as a treatment for hair removal.
What Can I Expect from BBL™ Treatment?
You can expect to see fading or disappearance of the following skin concerns:
- Acne scarring
- Burst blood vessels
- Uneven skin tone
- Rough skin texture
- Sun damage
- Lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
While BBL™ is not a skin-tightening treatment, heating up the layers of skin in the dermis stimulates collagen production and results in firmer skin.
You can expect three to six treatments to see your best results, especially for hair removal. You will begin to see results from treatment after a few weeks. Treatment lasts for months for most people, but you will need to wear sunscreen to prevent new hyperpigmentation from coming back.
