Broad Band Light Pigment Reduction Beverly Hills

BroadBand Light (BBL) Pigment Reduction is an innovative light therapy treatment that can help you retain youthful and vibrant skin. Suppose your skin tone and texture is not as even or smooth as you’d like. In that case, you owe it to yourself to explore this exciting, new, non-invasive opportunity in skincare.

BroadBand Light treats skin conditions such as rosacea, acne, pigmentation or broken blood vessels. It can help to minimize the appearance of sun damage, age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. You can expect to see visible improvement in skin health within a few days or couple weeks after your first BBL treatment.

What is BroadBand Light Pigment Reduction?

This gentle skin treatment uses the natural warmth and radiance of light to reduce, and sometimes eliminate, dark spots – also known as hyperpigmentation – caused by aging and prolonged sun exposure. Unlike creams and lotions that only work on the skin’s surface, this healing light penetrates deep into your skin, stimulating cell regeneration.

The BBL device uses broad-spectrum photothermal energy (light energy). The upper layers of the skin absorb the heat and energy from the device while pigmented skin cells degrade, and superficial blood vessels in the area are closed off. This light therapy safely and effectively helps to diminish visible signs of aging while stimulating natural collagen and elastin production.

BroadBand Light Pigment Reduction Benefits

Along with pigment reduction, you can expect an improvement in the general radiance of your skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles after your treatment. If you struggle with rosacea, you can expect a BroadBand Light treatment to reduce redness. It’ll also kill the bacteria beneath the skin that causes acne. Some other benefits include:

  • Stimulating collagen production: The procedure promotes your skin’s elasticity.
  • Stronger bones and joints
  • Reduces spider veins: improves the appearance of spider veins, broken capillaries, or vascular lesions that detract from the radiance of your complexion.
  • No downtime
  • Quick treatment: It takes just 30 minutes.

How the Procedure Works

BroadBand Light Pigment Reduction is a safe and straightforward procedure. Here’s what you can expect.

Before & Preparation

  • Avoid tanning beds and direct sunlight for at least four weeks before each session.
  • Avoid using sunless tanner for two weeks before your appointment.
  • Avoid waxing, chemical peels, and products containing retinol, salicylic acid, or glycolic acid for one week before your appointment.

During the Procedure

  • To begin, your provider will provide you with protective eyewear.
  • You will experience a warming sensation as your nurse or doctor runs the applicator- not technically a laser but very much like one — over your skin.
  • The device delivers a dose of pulsed light to the deepest layers of your skin.
  • Your provider will spot and target specific problem areas using different filters and varying the wavelength of the light treatment to eliminate abnormal pigmentation.

  • Avoid direct sunlight for 7-14 days after the procedure: Your skin will be exceptionally vulnerable to sunburn and changes in pigmentation during this time.

BroadBand Light Pigment Reduction Reviews

I went to Spa 26 recently for my hyperpigmentation.  Three friends recommended Dr. N. so of course I took their advice. I was blown away. Not only is the staff professional, but the service was impeccable. They took me on time and the office is immaculate.  Dr. N. and Nurse Corie are beyond knowledgeable and have helped me tremendously. Finally found a place that is legitimate.

BroadBand Light Pigment Reduction FAQs

Does BBL require sedation?

No. When you arrive for your appointment, the aesthetician will first gently cleanse your skin and then, if you wish, apply a numbing cream to reduce discomfort.

How long do BBL laser results last?

With good skincare and vigilant use of sunscreen, your BroadBand Light Pigment Reduction results will last indefinitely.

Can BBL leave my dark spots even darker?

It can indeed but don’t panic. Darker spots appearing are regular, temporary. It is a sign that the procedure was successful. You’ll soon notice that your complexion is more even in tone and more luminous than ever.

Can BBL minimize the sagging on my neck?

The neck is one of the first places where we notice the signs of aging. As BroadBand Light Pigment Reduction stimulates collagen production in your body, your skin will appear noticeably firmer, even on your neck.

Can BBL interact with any of my medications?

Inform your doctor of all your medications before treatment. If you experience frequent cold sores, your doctor might recommend taking an antiviral drug before your treatment.

What’s the best sunscreen to use after BBL?

Protect the glowing results of your BroadBand Light Pigment Reduction by using a sunscreen that contains zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. It must have an SPF (sun protection factor) of 30 or more.
