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.
