How Does BBL Laser Work?
The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. This process restores your skin to its natural beauty, making it clearer, smoother, more vibrant, and younger looking.
Does The Procedure Hurt?
No, BBL is not painful. However, during treatment, the laser releases an intense burst of light. Even though special safety eyewear is in place, you will sense light emanating from the treatment area. The sensation of light may be uncomfortable in certain areas and feel like pin pricks or bursts of heat.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Many patients report visible results after one treatment. Your provider may recommend a series of treatments for optimal results.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
There is no downtime with BBL. You may have some subtle redness immediately post procedure that will subside within an hour. Targeted brown spots and freckles may become darker in appearance; they will flake off on their own within a few days.
