BBL PHOTOFACIAL

Non-invasive rejuvenation that turns heads

Your face is the first thing that people notice. Regrettably, it is often the first part of our bodies to really show age as well. We would all love to turn back the clock and restore a healthy, youthful glow -but with so many treatment options it can become overwhelming and difficult to understand which approach is best. Lucky for you, Esthetic Solutions have taken the guesswork out and are prepared to deliver guaranteed results. BBL Broadband Light is the gold standard for treating a variety of skin conditions associated with aging, sun damage, rosacea, acne, broken capillaries, unwanted hair, and loss of firmness.

How does BBL work?

BBL Broadband Light therapy, often referred to as a Photo Facial or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, addresses many symptoms associated with skin aging—including redness, broken blood vessels, and brown spots. This cutting edge laser flashes high-intensity light into the upper layers of skin, stimulating the synthesis of new collagen. Further, a recent clinical study at Stanford University suggests that BBL therapy alters gene expression in photoaged skin, causing it to resemble young skin. BBL is one of the most powerful and effective ways to reverse dull, wrinkled, and blemished skin and restore a youthful glow.

What areas of the body can be treated?

The face, neck, chest, arms, and hands are popular treatment areas but the laser can be used almost anywhere.

How many treatments will I need?

Patients can expect excellent results from a single treatment. In order to receive the best possible outcome, most patients elect schedule follow up visits to obtain stronger results. Additionally, you may elect to combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

What conditions can be treated?
  • Aging skin
  • Freckles and age spots
  • Small blood vessels and rosacea
  • Acne
  • Unwanted hair
  • Loss of firmness
What can I expect before and during treatment?

You will enter the treatment room and be asked to lay back in a treatment chair while your face is cleaned. Next, your eyes will be covered with safety shields, the laser esthetician will position the handpiece above the skin, and begin a computer-guided process to treat the selected area. While everyone’s pain tolerance level is different, there is usually no need for a topical anesthetic.  Expect the entire process to last 15-30 minutes.

How long is recovery and what can I expect?

Immediately following treatment, you will notice increased redness in the treated skin—similar to a mild sunburn. This typically lasts a few hours but can linger for 1-2 days. Improvement typically shows several days after treatment and you should expect to see broken blood vessels and blemishes improve for a period of two weeks after the procedure.
