BBL at Vesper

Skin Care / June 1, 2023

Broadband light (BBL) laser therapy, also known as a photofacial, is an amazing cosmetic procedure to improve the quality of your skin.  BBL can be used to treat many skin issues such as rosacea, telangiectasias (broken blood vessels) and acne.  This type of laser therapy can also be used to treat sun damage (age spots), fine lines, wrinkles and even out skin tone and texture.  The BBL technology can help you feel like you have a beautiful and clear complexion.

In order to prepare your skin for your laser treatment, you want to stay out of the sun and make sure you are wearing your sunscreen for at least 2 weeks before your appointment.  Do not use any sunless tanner for at least two weeks prior to your treatment.  Avoid waxing, chemical peels, retinoids and salicylic/glycolic acid for one week.
You can resume your normal activity after your treatment but you want to make sure you continue to protect your skin from the sun and use your sunscreen.  You may feel a little hot or flush for an hour or two after your treatment.  Your sunspots will darken and flake off for the next 7-10 days, unveiling beautiful skin.  Your redness and broken blood vessels will improve.  Typically you will need anywhere from 3-6 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart for a great result, however, everyone is different and the number of treatments needed will depend on your skin, so it is very important to come in for a consultation.
Other perks of BBL laser therapy include improvement of skin texture, tone and pore size.  Once you get your skin to a point where you are happy with the appearance, it is recommended that you get on a schedule of a BBL laser every 3-4 months to maintain your results.
