BroadBand Light Therapy—BBL®
BroadBand Light Therapy, or BBL, is one of the most advanced and versatile treatments available to treat myriad skin conditions safely and effectively. With this one device, M Spa Face and Body can help patients treat acne, remove unwanted hair, reduce red and brown pigmentation, and fade spider veins nearly anywhere on the body.
With its short treatment times and efficient results, BBL has quickly earned itself a top spot among skin rejuvenation treatments. Its unique technology targets a variety of blemishes by encouraging the skin to develop more collagen and produce noticeable improvements to both your skin’s tone and texture. Additionally, its pain-free method offers minimal recovery periods. With BBL treatments, patients don’t have to choose between having a comfortable treatment and an effective one.
How the BBL Technology Works
BroadBand Light, or BBL, is the world’s most powerful IPL (intense pulsed light) device. It set a new standard for treating skin conditions associated with aging and sun damage. It also can treat acne, remove unwanted hair, and treat complex cases of pigmentation and vascular lesions.
The innovative and advanced use of broad-spectrum visible and infrared light selectively heats layers of skin, removing unwanted pigmentation marks, redness, and other undesirable blemishes.
Our BBL Services Include the Following Treatments
Forever Bare BBL
Shaving, waxing, and plucking to remove undesired facial and body hair can be time-consuming and painful. Not to mention, it is a waste of time and money as body hair can grow back quickly, leaving you with stubbled, coarse skin. There are always risks of razor burns or hot wax burns that can leave you with unwanted scars.
Hair removal with Forever Bare BBL is another method of permanently reducing and eliminating unwanted hair on the face and body. This treatment uses light therapy to reduce hair growth by targeting and injuring hair follicles without harming the surrounding skin. Forever Bare BBL is one of the quickest methods for hair removal treatment because of how it heats the hair follicles evenly, minimizing missed spots.
Unlike other hair reduction devices that apply energy to the entire area at the same time, Forever Bare BBL uses motion technology to distribute a low fluency in multiple pulses, protecting the surrounding skin while slowly raising the follicle temperature for the most efficient and effective hair removal. Additionally, Forever Bare BBL comes with adapters for different zone sizes, so you can treat large and small facial and body areas in less time.
Forever Young BBL
Forever Young BBL™ treatments are coveted among patients with active, busy lifestyles for whom time and appearance are important. Patients can enjoy smooth, glowing skin with diminished fine lines and improved tone and texture with no recovery time.
This advanced IPL therapy delivers light in a spectrum of wavelengths, offering patients the benefits of a medium-depth laser or chemical peels without having to contend with blisters, burns, or lengthy recovery periods. These varying wavelengths have a combined effect on the skin, removing brown and red pigment, resulting in a clearer, more even-toned complexion while simultaneously promoting collagen production.
Forever Young BBL™ treatment diminishes the appearance of age or liver spots, fine lines, facial flushing (rosacea), redness, broken capillaries, freckles, and signs of sun damage. It may also help reduce pore size and treat mild acne scars, giving you smoother, healthier skin.
BBL Hero™ (Higher Energy Rapid Output) is a ground-breaking technology that upgrades traditional BBL by delivering more power to create a more effective skin resurfacing treatment. BBL Hero™ is designed to be used on large areas of the body, including the chest, arms, shoulders, back, and legs. Additionally, because of the rapid output of broadband light, treatment duration times for arms and legs are greatly reduced. A treatment with BBL Hero™ takes only 5 minutes for each limb, removing unwanted pigmentation caused by sun damage.
Furthermore, BBL Hero™ has three times the optimal power and twice the cooling features of traditional BBL, which means laser skin resurfacing treatments with BBL Hero are more effective and comfortable, making this a popular treatment for Webster residents seeking to treat damage caused by brutal Texas sunshine.
Forever Clear BBL
Our Sciton Forever Clear BBL™ acne treatment targets acne conditions at the source to treat current acne and prevent future breakouts. The primary causes of acne are bacteria, debris, and oil that become trapped in the pores, leading to an infection. Forever Clear BBL™ destroys acne-causing bacteria, reducing inflammation and redness for clearer, healthier skin.
The power behind Forever Clear BBL™ is a combination of several light wavelengths into a comprehensive three-step treatment.
- Blue LED light penetrates the skin to target bacteria
- Yellow LED light reduces active and inflammatory acne to prevent future breakouts and reduce the appearance of acne scars
- Infrared LED light delivers rapid, gentle pulses to stimulate the skin’s natural healing process.
What to Expect from BBL Skin Treatment at M Spa Face & Body
Before we begin your treatment, a clear gel will be applied over the treatment area. We will provide a pair of safety goggles to wear throughout your treatment to protect your eyes from the flashes of light. During your treatment, you may feel some warmth as the BBL device is guided across the targeted area. While this procedure isn’t painful, you may experience slight discomfort in more sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, underarms, and bikini line.
Treatment times vary depending on the area and skin conditions you want to address. However, one treatment typically lasts a few minutes to half an hour. Once your treatment is finished, we’ll apply a soothing moisturizer and sunscreen to hydrate and protect your skin before you resume your normal activities.
What Is the Recovery Period After a BBL Treatment?
Other than keeping the treated area protected from prolonged sunlight for a few weeks, you can immediately return to your normal routine. Slight redness and irritation are common and will usually disappear after a few days.
How Many BBL Treatments Will I Need?
Many variables affect how many treatments you’ll require. Some patients see dramatic improvements in their unwanted hair, age spots, redness, or acne treatments in just 4-6 treatments. However, some patients require 6 to 8 treatments before they reach their desired results depending on specific treatment.
After thoroughly examining your skin, your BBL expert at M Spa Face & Body will be able to provide you with a more definitive answer about how many treatments you’ll need to achieve your optimal results.
