Broadband Light (BBL) Therapy, also known as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), is a state-of-the-art skin care treatment that erases sun damage and stops making you appear older than you really are.
BBL combats an array of different skin concerns among men: hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, visible facial veins, among others like sun spots, redness, age spots and fine lines. BBL is also effective in the treatment of acne.
Using a handheld device, our certified aesthetician will carefully pass the device over the entire treatment area delivering pulsed light directly to the skin. The heat emitted by the pulses prompt your skin cells to produce new collagen. It also activates a healing response in the body that erases pigmentation issues, bringing any damage out to the surface of your skin only to flake off on their own.
Collagen is a foundational protein in our skin cells that provide scaffold-like structures to support a youthful appearance. An abundance of collagen is what makes our skin appear smooth, supple and youthful. However, as we age, our bodies produce less collagen and the collagen that we do produce is less firm than before. Add in the damaging effects of the sun, namely ultraviolet rays, and our collagen production takes a big hit, making rejuvenating skin care treatments essential to restore our skin’s health.
As long as the device can lie flat against the skin, the pulsed light can be used on many areas of a man’s body. The most frequently treated areas are the:
BBL is the treatment that keeps on giving. In the months following your treatment, your skin will continue to boost collagen production. Skin will appear smoother and brighter, pores will also look smaller, and blemishes and discoloration will fade.
The length of the appointment depends on the treatment areas, but treatment typically takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. After a BBL treatment, your skin may be red for a few hours. Most people are able to go back to work and resume other normal activities immediately. Our team will make sure that you have complete aftercare instructions to protect your results, which includes avoiding direct sun exposure.
While you may notice visible change after one treatment, it’s very common that more than one BBL treatment may be required. Only an aesthetician can determine how many treatments you will need. In a complimentary consultation, you’ll sit down with one of our certified aestheticians and discuss your concerns, your goals and your treatment plan.
If you’re getting ready to have treatment, or if you’ve just had it, read our pre and post treatment instructions so you can take proper care of yourself every step of the way.
