It uses a range of light waves that target issues hemoglobin and melanin in the skin, making redness and dark spots less visible. Most people need 3-5 treatments spaced one month apart to see best results.
BBL Laser Treatment
BroadBand Light treatment, or BBL treatment, is used to improve freckles, age spots, small blood vessels, uneven skin texture, and skin firmness on the face, chest, hands, and neck. It uses light energy to heat the upper layers of the skin, stimulating new collagen production to improve skin health. The machine is equipped with cooling technology, ensuring that patients are comfortable during treatment. The number of treatments needed will depend on the individual and their aesthetic goals.
As you can see, both of these laser treatments can address common signs of skin aging, though they do so through different methods. The best way to determine which treatment option is right for you is through a consultation with one of our plastic surgeons.
