One of the most recent skin treatment procedures emerging nowadays is broadband light(BBL) photo skin rejuvenation treatment. This procedure is known as a photo-facial also called laser skin resurfacing and is a safely tested procedure for skin enhancement. Broadband light (bbl) therapy is also used to indeed out the skin tone and texture.
The primary purpose of this procedure is to treat specific medical skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, spider nevi, and other post-acne scars. We use this procedure to reduce the sun exposure damage on the skin and diminish the fine lines. Soften the wrinkles accumulated over the years also.
HOW DOES BROADBAND LIGHT(BBL) SKIN TREATMENT IMPROVE YOUR SKIN TEXTURE?
Like all other cosmetic treatments, BBL treatment is another procedure to deal with your skin concerns. Enhance your skin’s complexion and control the defiant tone, which is hard to get rid of by opting for this service.
With the use of light energy of IPL ablative laser, this laser skin resurfacing procedure gently heats the upper layer of the skin and further stimulates your body’s natural collagen-making capacity.
The heat absorbed in the treated area will stimulate the skin to regenerate and give a youthful and younger-looking appearance.
Broadband light therapy can be used for all skin types and on all sites which require skin rejuvenation. The primary target areas of BBL therapy are your face, neck, arms, and chest, but you can use it for other areas of the skin too.
The dermatologically practiced procedure, BBL, is used for conditions such as acne rosacea, vascular lesions, etc. This procedure uses a broadband light which adds to your skin’s elasticity, and enhances firmness, improving pigmentation. To enlist some of the factors it treats,
- Regular sun damage

WHAT HAPPENS IN OUR BROADBAND LIGHT THERAPY?
One laser resurfacing appointment requires at least thirty minutes, depending on your specified requirements. We can adjust the area to be treated and the corresponding time. Our workers ensure your comfort as their topmost priority. After providing a local anesthetic, we direct a broadband wavelength light to the depth of your skin in the specified area.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
On exposure to Intense pulse light(IPL), you might initially experience mild discomfort and redness, but once our expert service providers do the procedure, your natural collagen-making ability stimulates.
This is a noninvasive procedure so has very minimal recovery time. You might see some redness in the treated area which is temporary and resolve in a few minutes.
You can expect the result in duration somewhere between a few days to weeks after the first therapy but you can start noticing and visibly experiencing the changes in subsequent sessions.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS BBL?
Broadband light therapy is very effective if you have blemishes and visible veins or scar marks on your skin. Initially, after the treatment, your skin looks visibly clearer and fresher with diminished pores and reduced discoloration. It usually takes a few weeks for your skin to show noticeable effects and lighten up in comparison.
After two more weeks post-treatment, the skin texture starts evening out, and your skin appears smooth, both to touch and visibly. We schedule and customize your BBL sessions depending on your skin type. We follow a minimum of six standard BBL appointments followed up by two meetings per year to maintain the results.
According to various studies performed in 2019, BBL has proved to be a helpful procedure when concerned with removing wrinkles on the cheeks and dealing with the marionette lines. We, at ShineMD Medspa and Liposuction, recognize the significance behind research and trial before recommending a procedure and assure you of quality procedures with effective results.
PRECAUTIONS TO OBSERVE WITH A BBL PROCEDURE
After your first BBL session with us, you might feel redness and a slight burning sensation. This may last for several hours, and we recommend cold compresses regularly to the area under consideration.
A week post your procedure, slight pigmentation will start appearing on your skin, and it is quite usual to experience specific peeling frequently. A few days later, you’ll start noticing visible results. Furthermore, we advise you to avoid regular exfoliation, topical ointments, and scented products.
You need to treat your skin gently post-treatment and take extra care while washing it. Make sure to avoid rubbing it and minimize the use of materials like a loofah. This procedure is, however, safe for untanned and lighter skins.
