Erase Sun Damage with BBL Laser Treatment
Admit it, you’ve laid out in the sun for a little too long before, or you’ve been in a tanning bed several times. We’ve all been there, trying to get a little extra color before we head to the beach or go to a big event. But as much as we like to have that golden tanned skin, all that exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation is really harmful for our complexion.
UVA rays can age our skin cells and damage their DNA. This leads to a long list of skin problems, including:
- Increased risk of skin cancer
- Fine lines
- Age spots
- Sagging skin
- And more
You’ve heard about the importance of sunscreen to help protect your skin on a daily basis. But, if the damage is already done, you can use BBL treatment to erase the harm that’s been caused by UV rays.
What is BBL Laser Treatment?
BBL is a short form for BroadBand Light. This is an intense pulsed light that’s used to treat a wide range of skin conditions. What sets BBL face treatment apart from other laser treatments is the number of lasers that are used during the process. Traditional laser treatments utilize a single wavelength of light to address specific concerns. However, BBL uses hundreds of different color wavelengths to target a wide range of problems.
BBL laser treatment will use short blasts of high-intensity light to leave your skin looking and feeling younger in no time. And the best part? The treatment is quick. All you need is about 30 minutes to restore your youthful glow. And you can actually stop the clock on aging if you keep up with regular maintenance sessions.
How Does BBL Skin Treatment Work?
During a BBL skin treatment, the upper layers of the skin are heated with a broad-spectrum and infrared light. The light targets and breaks down issues like age spots and sun damage. The light also warms up the layer of the skin that encourages collagen and elastin growth. Collagen is extremely important to smooth out wrinkles and help tighten sagging skin.
If you want to target a certain issue, then the lasers can be adjusted to get the results you’re looking for. Talk with your dermatologist about the skincare goals that you’re looking for.
What BBL Can Do for Your Skin?
Years of sun damage can be reversed, and collagen that has been lost due to aging, can be restored with the help of BBL skin treatments.
Here are some great benefits to having this treatment done and what areas you can target:
1. Treats several conditions:
- Treats acne
- Broken capillaries
- Spider veins
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin texture
2. BBL skin treatment can be done anywhere on the body, including:
3. Quick treatment
Depending on the size of the area that you are having treated, the entire process will usually last about 30 minutes.
4. Zero to minimal downtime
Your skin may appear mildly red or flushed after your treatment, but that’s all. There is no bleeding, bruising, or anything else that would cause any downtime.
5. Long-lasting results
If you maintain a routine schedule of about two to three treatments a year, you will have permanent youthful-looking skin and drastically slow down the signs of aging.
What to Expect After BBL?
Results are noticeable just after one treatment. How many treatments you get will depend on the results that you’re looking for. Most patients are happy with three to six treatments that are spaced out about four weeks apart. Depending on the results you want and how much you want to pay, you may want to have restorative maintenance treatments just to keep up with the results. BBL treatment cost about $400-$600 for each trip, depending on the area you’re having treated and how large it is.
As far as it goes for what to expect right after your first session, there’s no downtime required. We know we keep saying that, but we really mean it! You can return to work right after your session or carry on with your other daily activities. Keep in mind, your skin may look like you have a mild sunburn, or it may be a little red after you get the treatment done, but nothing too major. You shouldn’t put makeup on right away, but you’ll be able to do it a few hours after treatment.
