Broadband light (BBL) therapy utilizes energy-releasing technology to improve the aesthetics of the skin, and also helps it to look younger and smoother. It works by employing therapeutic-grade light energy that slightly warms the skin and causes collagen production. Patients with a variety of skin issues can benefit from BBL, as it functions to address rosacea, broken blood vessels, sun damage, and unwanted freckles. Also, it can help create a more even and smooth skin surface texture to generate fresh, glowing skin. BBL could be added to other cosmetic treatments to fulfill your wants and goals. Our practice, Starwood Med Spa in Frisco, TX, offers BBL as an innovative treatment proven to help rejuvenate our patients’ skin.
After creating the appropriate treatment plan, the settings of the BBL device will be adjusted to fit your unique needs. Before starting the procedure, your eyes will be covered to protect them from the light of the laser. Our staff will then softly pass the laser over your skin while focusing on the treatment locations. The amount of time needed for your treatment will vary depending upon the issue being treated and if any additional treatments were included in the BBL procedure. BBL procedures can typically be completed in about an hour or less.
We will be able to discuss your costs in your consultation once your plan has been created. The overall price will be based on what area(s) you are having treated, the treatment area(s) size, and how many sessions will be needed. Once our team assesses the condition of your skin and listens to your goals, they will work with you to decide on your custom treatment plan. Starwood Med Spa often runs specials on treatments like BBL — so be sure to ask about our current deals when you make your appointment.
The number of BBL sessions needed can be discussed in your initial consultation as soon as we examine your skin’s condition. On average, patients achieve their skin goals after three treatments. However, if you have severe sun damage, pigmentation, or discoloration, you may require more sessions. During your initial consultation, our staff will consider your concerns and create your BBL treatment plan. Your appointments will be scheduled about one month apart so your skin can heal.
Almost all areas of skin may be improved with BBL; however, the most commonly treated are the face, neck, hands, chest, shoulders, and back. These are the areas that typically have the most damage since they are regularly in the sun. The face, neck, and hands are also the first places to be affected by lifestyle and natural aging, so treating these spots can help improve your whole appearance.
The energy wavelengths in a BroadBand light treatment can be adjusted for each patient’s unique needs — so BBL can be used on all skin tones and types. For your best results, we recommend you avoid UV (ultraviolet) light exposure (both tanning beds and natural sunlight) for at least 10 – 14 days before your appointment. Tanned skin has an increased amount of melanin (pigment), which can absorb the BBL energy and impact your outcome. Your skin will be extra sensitive to UV light, so you need to continue to limit your sun exposure and not use tanning beds throughout your treatment and for a minimum of 10 – 14 days after your final BBL session.
This exciting therapy utilizes innovative technology to enhance the appearance and texture of your skin, regardless of what skin condition you might be living with. By creating youthful, glowing, and even skin, BBL may help you regain confidence in your look.
