Is BBL™ BroadBand Light Laser Treatment Right For Me?

Whether you’re suffering from stubborn acne, aging skin, or dark spots, the BBL™ BroadBand Light treatment can make your skin look smoother, healthier, and younger.

The BBL™ BroadBand Light treatment uses dual-lamp technology to deliver wavelengths to various layers of the dermis. These wavelengths encourage cellular turnover while targeting and treating complexion issues, including:

  • Acne
  • Dark spots
  • Deep lesions
  • Facial veins
  • Rosacea
  • And other various blemishes

The BBL™ BroadBand Light procedure is also a great choice for painless laser hair removal.

The Procedure

Due to multiple adapters and wavelengths, BBL™ BroadBand Light treatment can be specifically tailored to a patient’s unique skin concerns. This procedure also allows for several skin conditions to be addressed within a single session.

During the procedure, various wavelengths are used to target discolorations and lesions. These areas of pigmentation in the upper layers of your skin absorb light energy from the laser, which stimulates cells to generate new collagen. In addition, photothermal energy works to reduce fine facial veins and other lesions that cause redness.

BBL™ BroadBand Light treatments are safe and effective for any area of the body where you are wanting to see clearer, smoother skin. Generally, the areas needing treatment are those which have common exposure to the sun, for example:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Back of hands

The procedure is virtually painless. Patients can expect to feel comfortable throughout the treatment, but with a slight occasional pinch. Some have likened the sensation to that of a rubber band being snapped against the skin.

Patients typically need 2-5 treatment sessions, spaced 3-4 weeks apart. During your consultation you can discuss the proper treatment plan for your specific needs.

Apart from addressing common complexion issues due to aging, BBL™ BroadBand Light treatments can also get rid of unwanted hair for all skin and hair types. For laser hair removal, BBL™ BroadBand Light targets and destroys the darker hair follicle. Over time, hair regrowth is minimized, leading to smoother, silkier skin.


There is zero downtime with BBL™ BroadBand Light treatments. Patients can immediately return to their normal activities and feel free to immediately apply makeup. It is important to wear sunscreen whenever outdoors, as your skin will be sensitive to UV rays.
