  • Age spots
  • Sun damaged skin

Before Your BBL Treatments

Before undergoing broadband light therapy, individuals should have a comprehensive understanding of the treatment plan. Non-invasive methods of skin treatment are used to make intense pulsed light therapy safe for any skin type, including darker skin tones. As long as the patient has healthy skin, intense pulsed light therapy can address various skin concerns such as sagging skin, sun spots, age spots, small facial blood vessels, aging skin, sun damage, pigmented lesions, brown spots, and uneven skin tones.

Prior to the procedure, it’s crucial to consult with Key Laser to assess skin suitability and discuss expectations. Patients should anticipate multiple sessions for optimal results, typically spaced several weeks apart. Before the treatment, patients may need to avoid sun exposure and certain skincare products (such as retinol used in acne treatment) that could make the skin more sensitive. 

During Your BBL Treatment

During the procedure, the targeted areas will be cleaned, and patients will wear dark glasses to protect against vision damage. Once properly sterilized, the intense pulsed light source will be moved across the skin surface to gently heat the skin cells. Patients might experience a warming sensation during the light pulses, but topical anesthetic or cooling gel may be utilized to minimize any discomfort.

After Your BBL Treatment

After the procedure, you may experience sensations similar to a mild sunburn in the treated area (including mild pain, mild redness, and mild skin sensitivity). This will typically dissipate between several hours to several days after. It’s essential to adhere to post-care instructions provided by Key Laser, such as using sunscreen and avoiding direct sun exposure (including tanning beds). It is also important to note that the results may vary, and broadband light skin treatments are rarely a one-and-done option – multiple sessions may be needed to achieve the desired outcome.

FAQs About Our BBL Phototfacial Treatments in Portland

What Kind of Results Can I Expect From BBL?

How many treatments are needed will be determined at your Key Laser consultation and skin rejuvenation goals. After your first intense pulsed light treatment, you will see age spots and sun spots begin to fade and natural beauty continue to improve over the next several weeks. Ultimately, your skin will look firm, vibrant, youthful, and renewed as long as you maintain your treatment plan.

Patients often see the best results with multiple treatments spaced weeks or months apart.

What Is the Science Behind BBL?

When BBL and intense pulsed light deliver light energy to the skin, it causes the body to begin regenerating cells in the form of collagen production. Furthermore, the intense pulsed light device’s photothermal energy eliminates vessels that cause redness, along with unwanted melanin in the skin that causes sunspots and other marks. With BBL, patients can enjoy smoother skin, a more even complexion, reduced lines and wrinkles, and much more.
