Why BBL Face Treatments Are the New IT girl in the Beauty Industry?

Broadband light (BBL) photo facial is a popular treatment for certain skin conditions, acne, sun damage, and aging advocated by health and wellness clinics. BBL face treatment uses laser therapy to brighten your complexion. It restores the appearance of your skin after it has been damaged by exposure to sun, pollution, and aging. BBL can also be used to treat conditions like rosacea, acne, and vascular lesions. The photo facial is also effective against textured skin, hyperpigmentation, redness, and loose, sagging skin.


The BBL procedure begins with a consultation with the dermatologist who examines your skin and decides which areas to focus on. Once your customized treatment plan has been formulated, it is time for the therapy sessions to commence.

STEP 1 -

The physician begins by applying a cooling gel and a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. You will be given safety goggles to protect your eyes.

STEP 2 -

An applicator is glided over your skin to target a broad spectrum of wavelengths into your skin’s underlying layers. You are likely to experience a pulsing sensation and mild pain during the procedure.

STEP 3 -

After the treatment, your skin may have some redness and swelling. Sometimes, it may even be slightly warm to the touch. Normally, a BBL face treatment will start showing results within a few days or weeks of the first session. You will notice more significant results along the way, as you continue the treatment.


  • From about 4 to 6 weeks before the treatment, make sure you avoid direct sunlight as much as possible. Stay away from tanning beds as well. When you arrive at your appointment, your skin should not be tanned.
  • A week before the session, avoid putting your skin through waxing and chemical peels. You should also completely swear off products that contain retinol, salicylic acid, and glycolic acid. If you use sunless tanners, make sure to stay away from them for at least 2 weeks before the treatment.
  • Certain medications can cause photosensitivity. It is always a good idea to talk to your doctor before you decide to undergo the procedure. Note that BBL procedures are not covered by health insurance. It helps to have arranged a payment plan in advance.


A BBL face treatment starts showing noticeable changes within the first few days. Any blemishes and blood vessels from the treatment will begin clearing up in a couple of weeks. You will be able to tell the pronouncement of the procedure by the lesser texture and evenness of your skin. Closer observation might even reveal an improvement in the appearance of pores, fine lines, and discolorations.

Depending on how much work needs to be done, the dermatologist will recommend anywhere from 3-6 treatment sessions taking place at an interval of 2 weeks. Once the desired look has been achieved, you will be required to undergo 2 treatments every year to maintain the result. It was also found in a stuffy from 2020 that the BBL laser thickens the epidermis of the skin, thereby boosting collagen production and elasticity.
