What It Is

BBL Photofacial is a revolutionary treatment that uses Broadband Light (BBL) technology to improve the appearance of the skin. BBL is a powerful form of Intense Pulsed Light therapy used to treat numerous skin concerns, including uneven pigmentation, redness and rosacea, spider veins, and uneven skin texture. BBL does not require anesthesia and has minimal downtime. It’s one of the most effective treatments for rejuvenating and revitalizing the skin.

How It Works

BBL Photofacial uses Broadband Light (BBL) technology to improve the appearance of the skin and address a range of skin concerns. During the treatment, a handheld device delivers controlled light energy to the skin. The BBL light energy gently heats the upper layers of the skin, causing the targeted areas to absorb the heat. This triggers the skin cells to regenerate, leading to a corrective process that restores the skin to its natural beauty.

In addition to stimulating cellular regeneration, BBL Photofacial can also boost collagen production. Collagen is a protein that helps support the skin’s structure and gives it a youthful appearance. By increasing collagen production, BBL Photofacial can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful and radiant look. BBL Photofacial is a highly effective treatment for rejuvenating and revitalizing the skin, making it look smoother, clearer, and more youthful.

What To Expect

BBL photofacials in Austin treatments typically offer a swift and convenient experience, typically requiring only around 30 minutes to finish. Most patients find the treatment tolerable and do not require numbing. You will be given goggles to protect your eyes from the laser light during the treatment. The provider will apply ultrasound gel to your skin and use a handheld device to pulse the BBL energy across the treated areas. The sensation is often described as feeling like a mild rubber band snap, and most patients find it very comfortable. After the treatment, your skin may look and feel slightly sunburnt and tender. These effects are temporary and should resolve within a few days. Within a week of the first treatment, you may notice improvements in your skin, such as smoother texture, more even pigmentation, and a reduction in fine lines and pores

The photothermal energy of the BBL treatment eliminates small blood vessels that cause redness and reduces excess melanin. Your pores will be less noticeable and the uneven pigmentation will fade. BBL Hero in Austin yields progressive outcomes, meaning that improvements continue to enhance after each session as your body generates fresh skin cells and collagen. Most patients need 3 to 5 sessions spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart for optimal results — our medical providers will recommend the optimal frequency. After the initial round of treatments, you can opt for maintenance sessions once or twice a year.

The synergistic effect of these treatments ensures a more even skin tone, smoother texture, and increased firmness. With minimal downtime and long-lasting results, combining BBL and MOXI treatments offers a convenient solution for achieving radiant and youthful-looking skin.


Is there downtime associated with BBL photofacial?

BBL photofacial typically involves minimal downtime. Patients may experience temporary redness or mild swelling immediately after treatment, but this usually subsides within a few hours to a day. Patients can return to their daily activities right after the session.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of BBL treatments needed depends on individual skin concerns and goals. Typically, a series of 3 to 5 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results. However, your skincare professional will assess your skin and provide a personalized treatment plan.

How does BBL compare to IPL treatments?

BBL (BroadBand Light) and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) are both light-based treatments used for various skin concerns. BBL utilizes advanced technology that allows for more precise targeting of specific skin concerns, such as sun damage and pigmentation. It also offers customizable settings for enhanced safety and effectiveness compared to traditional IPL treatments.
