What is BBL Laser?

BBL Laser, or Broadband Light therapy, uses intense pulsed light to rejuvenate skin, making it look clearer, firmer, and more youthful. It’s effective for treating hyperpigmentation, redness, facial vessels, loss of elasticity, acne, and rosacea.

What to Do Before Your Treatment?

Before undergoing BBL treatment, it’s crucial to protect your skin from the sun, inform your clinician about any medication you’re taking that could affect the treatment’s outcome, and avoid any procedures that might sensitize you to light.

What to Expect During Your Treatment?

The BBL procedure is generally gentle and safe. While no topical anaesthetic is usually needed, it may be used at your clinician’s discretion. Safety shields or glasses will protect your eyes during the procedure.

What to Do After Your Treatment?

Post-treatment care involves managing any redness and following your clinician’s aftercare plan until the skin completely heals, typically within a week.

What does BBL stand for?

BBL HERO stands for BroadBand Light High Energy Rapid Output. Unlike traditional lasers, BBL HERO uses a broad spectrum of light, allowing numerous wavelengths to enter the skin simultaneously.

Is BBL laser effective for Rosacea?

Yes, BBL laser can precisely address Rosacea symptoms like redness, inflammation, and visible blood vessels.

Can I have BBL when pregnant?

It’s not recommended due to insufficient information on the effects on the fetus.

Can dark skin tones have treatment with BBL?

BBL can treat up to skin type 5 but isn’t suitable for darker skin tones due to risks of hyperpigmentation.

What treatments do we combine with BBL for patients with redness or pigmentation?

Combining BBL with ClearSilk is effective for redness or rosacea, while pairing BBL HERO with MOXI optimizes treatment for pigmentation issues.

Price of BBL?

Prices range from €450 per session to €1200 for a course of 3 sessions.

Can patients with Melasma have BBL treatment?

BBL can flare up Melasma; alternatives like Moxi treatments are recommended.

Can BBL laser improve the appearance of acne scars, treat spider veins, and sun spots?

Yes, BBL is effective for acne scars, spider veins, and sun spots by stimulating collagen production and targeting pigmentation.

Are BBL results permanent?

Results are not permanent; maintenance sessions are recommended for lasting effects.

Is BBL laser the same as IPL?

While both use intense pulsed light, BBL’s broad spectrum allows it to stand out for its effectiveness and rapid results.

Is BBL laser good for Melasma?

BBL is not recommended for Melasma; alternative treatments like Moxi are suggested.
