Hello everybody, Nicole here! I am here to talk about one of our most popular services at BE medi spa – FOREVER YOUNG BBL by Sciton. Our BBL (BROADBAND LIGHT LASER) has so many amazing benefits, which I will breakdown for all of you.
- Comfortable with minimal downtime!
I know all of you have super busy schedules and are always looking for a procedure that has minimal downtime with great benefits. BBL is your answer! BBL gently removes pigment and other skin imperfections – you may leave the office looking a little red, but this will subside within 24 hours (most commonly, within the hour)! There is virtually no downtime for the procedure. You must, however, have no sun exposure one month prior to your appointment.
In addition, the device’s ComfortCool technology keeps the skin cool and comfortable throughout the procedure; numbing cream is not needed.
- Eliminates red & brown spots, treats rosacea!
BBL can treat multiple skin concerns. Most notably, it helps eliminate brown spots that we get from age or from the sun. It also treats vascular issues, such as stubborn rosacea or broken blood vessels.
If brown spots are the target, the light energy from the BBL will penetrate the skin to reach the pigment. These spots will then get darker over the following 7-14 days and then begin to peel or slough off, leaving you with a more even skin tone. If redness is the target, blood vessels in the superficial layers of the skin absorb the laser energy, which causes them to close. Over the course of several weeks, the body continues to absorb the destroyed vessel remnants. Most patients will need a series of three treatments, each one month apart, for corrective action (to get rid of brown spots or any redness). After doing so, we recommend two treatments a year for maintenance.
- Multiple treatable areas!
All areas of the body can be treated! We most commonly treat brown spots and redness on the face, neck, chest, and arms.
- Collagen-induction benefits
This is my favorite aspect of BBL! As we age, we start to lose collagen; this leads to saggy, wrinkly skin. Collagen is important for the strength & integrity of your skin. BBL stimulates your skin cells to regenerate, helping to rebuild collagen and elastin and improve the appearance of your skin. Over time, it will make your skin brighter, smoother, and firmer. I love that this procedure not only targets red and brown spots, but also targets signs of aging.
I hope this helps answer all of your questions about BBL and its benefits! Please don’t hesitate to reach out at 248-852-1900, where we can set you up with a complimentary consultation. At this visit, I can answer any additional questions J
