PHOTOTHERAPY

Due to sun exposure and the body’s natural aging process, an uneven skin tone can develop with unwanted sunspots, vascular lesions and pigmentation. Phototherapy using BBL can help correct this for a more even, beautiful complexion.

WHAT IT DOES

BBL™ (BroadBand Light) is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active lifestyles and sun damage. BBL energy can precisely treat concerns such as age and sun spots, small facial veins and vascular lesions, acne and uneven skin texture. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results. Any area of the body can be treated. The most common treatment areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of the sun, such as the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.

HOW IT WORKS

The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently heat the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colours and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.

WHAT TO EXPECT

HOW IT FEELS

This procedure is gentle, non-invasive and safe. Generally, there is no need for topical anaesthetic, however, it may be recommended on more sensitive areas.

TREATMENT TIME

Your treatment may take anywhere from a few minutes to half an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed.

DOWNTIME

There is virtually no downtime associated with this treatment. In most cases, you will be able to return to work, apply makeup and resume most of your regular activities immediately. You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated areas, followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Direct sun exposure should be avoided until the skin is completely healed. You will be provided with detailed post-treatment care instructions.

FREQUENCY

Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments received and the area treated. The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient. We will develop a personalized treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire.
