What is BBL™ (broadband light)?
BBL™ is an innovative technology that sets new standards for the treatment of skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles, and sun damage. BBL™ energy allows Dr. Seaver to treat age and sunspots, small facial veins, and other skin blemishes precisely. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin’s condition and your desired results.
What will BBL™ treatments do?
BBL™ uses the power of pulsed light to provide excellent phototherapy results. By selecting the appropriate wavelength or filter, Dr. Seaver will be able to treat a broad range of skin conditions caused by skin aging and sun exposure. Your skin will be smoother, more vibrant, and more youthful as a result. The light energy will heat the upper layers of the skin and stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen. This helps restore the skin to its natural beauty and will target and eliminate many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.
What areas can be treated and how many treatments will I need?
Any area of the body can be treated. The most popular treatments are for the face, neck, back of the hands, chest, and shoulders. In general, 2-5 treatments at 2- to 4-week intervals will produce the desired results. Additional treatments will depend on the severity of your condition. There is essentially no downtime. In almost all cases, you can return to work, apply makeup, and resume your activities right away.
What should I expect after the treatment?
You may have 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 at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine lines and pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots will fade. Dr. Seaver will provide you with information about the post-treatment care and results.
