BBL, or Broadband Light, is also known as photo rejuvenation or Strong Pulsed Light. You might know someone who has had a BBL treatment when you hear them say they are getting a photo facial. BBL skin treatment is also not the same thing as laser therapy. For the treatment of the affected region, lasers use a single wavelength, whereas BBL uses more than one wavelength, making it a more stable treatment choice.
How does BBL function?
The basic principle is that any damage to the skin can be used to benefit its appearance underpins Broadband Light treatments. As we age, as we live our daily lives, there is negative skin harm we experience: pollution, sun exposure, exposure to tobacco smoke, poor diet, and the basic make the skin dry, uneven in color wrinkled and rugged in texture.
A BBL or IPL machine sends controlled quantities of heat to the target area, causing slight damage to the body that signals it’s time to create more collagen and go into overdrive to repair the area. Skin cells absorb heat, which promotes the production of collagen. The damaged skin is gone, and without the complications that can often be associated with the use of lasers, the effect is cleaner, firmer, more rejuvenated looking skin. And you can go on with your day as your skin works for you once you're through with your treatment.
