How Does BBL Laser Work?

BBL Laser is a type of light-based therapy that delivers specific wavelengths in four different colors: yellow (590 nm), green (561 nm), red (633 nm), and blue light (473 nm). 


Each color has its own function. The yellow wavelength combats dry skin by stimulating collagen production. It relieves any dullness of the skin tissue, fades dark spots, heals acne scars, and gives you increased moisture in your skin. The green is used to lessen existing redness on the skin. It is a natural anti-inflammatory that treats rosacea and has wound healing properties for acne scars, acne, and irritation. The red light helps to improve skin texture and composition by stimulating elastin production. 


This makes the skin more supple and elastic. Finally, the blue wavelength stimulates collagen production. It also increases blood flow in the skin, which helps to remove pigmentation.

Am I A Good Candidate for BBL Treatment?

BBL is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure, which makes it suitable for most skin types. This skin rejuvenation treatment has shown excellent results for many kinds of skin issues. 


You are a good candidate for this skin rejuvenation procedure if you are experiencing:


  • Dullness from sun damage and aging
  • Uneven texture due to sunspots or other pigmentation issues
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne or acne scarring
  • Sun damage or age spots
  • Rosacea
  • Dryness and aging skin
  • Sagging or loose skin on the face, neck, chest, or hands
  • Tired, tired-looking eyes due to dark circles and puffiness
  • Rhinophyma (a condition that causes growth of skin tissue on the nose)

What Is the BBL Laser Procedure Like?

Because BBL laser treatment is gentle and causes no discomfort. Patients may experience minor redness immediately after the procedure, but this resolves within 24 hours. During BBL laser treatment, patients feel slightly warm pulses of energy. Treatment sessions are relatively fast, often lasting only 15-30 minutes per target area. 


BBL laser treatment may sometimes be combined with other skin rejuvenation procedures to optimize the overall esthetic effect. After receiving BBL HERO, patients can return to their regular daily routine with minimal aftercare.

What Results Will I See?

Because BBL laser treatment uses advanced technology, it is possible to see results after a single treatment. The results will continue to improve over the next 7-10 days. Many patients choose to undergo 3-6 treatments for optimum results.
