What is Broadband Light (BBL)?
Broadband Light Therapy (BBL) is a cosmetic treatment using light therapy to rejuvenate the skin, reduce hyperpigmentation resulting from sun damage, birthmarks, bruises, facial spider veins, and other skin issues due to aging. BBL™ removes dead skin cells and improves other skin imperfections and tightens connective tissues in the areas where the treatment is performed to leave the skin healthy, vibrant, and more youthful.

What To Expect After
After your BBL therapy, you may have some slight redness in the area similar to a mild sunburn, which clears up within a few days. There may be some flaking as the pigmentation comes to the surface. It is important to avoid excess sun exposure so that the new skin does not get discolored and the targeted pigmentation does not get darker as it dissipates.
