What Does BBL Mean?

BBL is short for broadband light. This is a type of IPL, so it is strictly not a laser but powerful light therapy. However, BBL has creative versatility and power, making it the Hero for treating various skin concerns.

  • fade pigmentation and brown spot
  • shrink broken capillaries
  • reduce facial redness
  • aging skin concerns from sun damage
  • acne blemishes
  • How Does the BBL Laser Work?

    The BBL facial is customised to your skin concern. Different filtered light energy is pulsed onto your skin. This light energy attracts various targets, such as brown in melanin, red or blue in blood vessels, and even collagen in your skin. When the light energy is absorbed into the target, healing occurs to remove unwanted areas of colour and stimulate new collagen production. Several programs are targeting different skin concerns.

    BBL Forever Flawless

    Forever Flawless is a BBL treatment to correct several skin concerns from sun exposure. It treats broken capillaries and unwanted pigmentation, facial redness and even bruising. Forever Flawless also stimulates collagen to repair aging skin concerns from sun damage. Usually, 3- 4 treatments are required to achieve skin goals. And once this is complete, you can switch to the BLL Forever Young treatment. BBL laser is safe for skin types 1 through light skin type 4.

    BBL Forever Young

    Now, this is a fascinating treatment from BBL. The clever people at Sciton developed a program to boost the ability of your skin to restore itself to a younger setting. In a ten-year clinical study, clients who received at least 2 Forever Young treatments per year were judged to look over ten years younger than they started the treatments. The BBL Forever Young is suitable for people displaying skin aging or simply as a preventative therapy. We recommend two treatments per year to keep you ahead of the aging clock.

    Forever Clear by BBL

    Forever Clear is a new approach to acne treatment, using a BBL laser to settle acne without medication. It is delivered in a 3-step process using Blue, Yellow, Red and Infrared light therapy. First, the blue light targets the bacteria overgrowth to reduce the infection. This is followed by yellow light to boost healing and LED light therapy to further calm inflammation and stimulate healing.

BBL Laser Information

It would be best if you avoided unprotected sun exposure up to 6 weeks before your BBL treatment to allow us to treat at adequate levels and minimise unwanted reactions. We also ask you to stop active therapies such as Vitamin A or exfoliants. However, B Vitamins creams are ok and even beneficial.

Your face will be cleansed to remove any makeup or creams, and our therapists will give you protective eyewear.

Our therapists will perform test patching to achieve optimal and safe settling for your BBL treatment.

They may need to perform several tests and wait up to three minutes between tests to observe your skin’s response to each level.

Once they are happy with the settings, the treatment happens quite quickly. Depending on your treatment program, 1, 2 or 3 passes with the BBL laser may be required.

The treatment times depends on the area being treated. As a guide, a BBL facial will take 20-30 minutes, and full face, neck and decolletage BBL treatment will take 1 hour.

For pigmentation -results take 4 weeks to become apparent. Initially, there is a darkening of the pigmented lesions. These then fade slowly as they flake off. At 4 weeks you can have a repeat treatment.

For capillaries – there will be an instant improvement. When you leave there will be some redness in the treated areas. There may be some return of the vessels (especially stubborn nose veins) and treatment can be repeated up to fortnightly to achieve desired fading results.

For acne – the results improve over a week. Immediately afterwards there is more redness, this slowly fades. Treatment results are cumulative.

Immediately after treatment, there will be redness and a feeling like a mild sunburn. This will settle over coming hours to days. You can apply specialised after laser makeup such as Oxygenetix but not occlusive makeup or creams as this can trap heat.

If we treat pigmentation, this will darken over the coming hours and remain darker until your body naturally eliminates this. This can take up to 4 weeks to see the total fading result, which is when we would recommend the subsequent treatment if needed. Sometimes there can also be bruising when treating capillaries or even small areas that look like a welt – as your skin responds.

There is no downtime as such – you can resume normal activities, and if you use the Oxygenetix, your face will allow you to continue with your day. However, you need to factor in the darkening of pigmentation spots which can take up to 4 weeks to progress to fading, or rarely if bruising occurs, allow seven days to fade.

There is no specific aftercare; however, you need SPF protection, preferably with sunscreen containing Iron Oxide.
