BBL™ BroadBand Light – A New Standard for Skin Rejuvenation

BBL™ BroadBand Light therapy harnesses the power of light energy and puts it to work on rejuvenating the skin. As a non-ablative form of pulsed light therapy, BBL™ is a cutting-edge technology that produces firmer, younger-looking skin with a more even tone, smoother texture and radiant glow. It works effectively to solve a variety of skin issues, including fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots, dark spots, age spots and scars. BBL™ is scientifically proven to slow down the aging process when patients receive treatments on a regular basis.

How BBL™ BroadBand Light Works With Thermal Energy

The upper layers of the skin are gently treated by light energy delivered by BBL™ therapy. The energized light, when absorbed by targeted areas of the skin, stimulates skin cells to generate new collagen. As new collagen growth promotes firmer, more even-toned skin, the photothermal energy delivered by BBL™ therapy also works to eliminate fine vessels causing redness. This process also reduces unwanted melanin that produces hyperpigmentation or other pigmented lesions, such as sunspots. BBL™ can be used to rejuvenate the face, chest, hands or back.

What to Expect from BBL™ BroadBand Light Therapy

We know what you’re thinking—light therapy and thermal energy sounds hot! Rest assured that BBL™ is a safe, FDA-approved treatment and the machine is equipped with CoolComfort™ technology that allows for the delivery of high-powered energy with minimal discomfort. As with any procedure at Schaffer Plastic Surgery, your safety and comfort are our top priorities; therefore, a numbing cream can also be applied prior to treatment to make it even more comfortable. Most patients describe the treatment as feeling warm or detecting a “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by targeted areas.

The Consultation Process

Prior to treatment, you will meet with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Schaffer, who personally directs BBL™ therapy. He is highly experienced in skin rejuvenation techniques and will be able to make expert recommendations that will help you achieve your desired goals for your skin and appearance. Since BBL™ is a highly tunable treatment, the strength of the light energy can be adjusted based on the amount of downtime you are able to experience. For patients who require limited downtime, a series of treatments may be recommended.

During the Treatment

During the treatment, your eyes will be protected with glasses or safety shields. Depending on the size of the treatment area, your session could range from only a few minutes to thirty minutes. Often, BBL™ will be combined with other skin rejuvenating treatments for more personalized results.

Post-Treatment Care

After BBL™ BroadBand Light therapy, you can resume your daily activities. Depending on the intensity of the treatment, you can even apply SPF and makeup immediately. Exposure to direct sunlight should be avoided during the first 24-48 hours, as should strenuous exercise. Pigmented lesions normally darken over the two to three days following treatment and become raised flecks. After being exfoliated by the skin’s normal turnover cycle, these spots should completely disappear.

Life changing! I had a "botched" bbl from a doctor in the surrounding area. I reached out to Dr. Schaffer for help and he gladly took on the challenge! He over exceded my expectations! I finally have the results i wanted all along. Thank you Dr. Schaffer.
