Introduction to BroadBand Light

BroadBand Light, or BBL, is an innovative light-based therapy that uses the power of intense pulsed light (IPL) to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the skin. BBL targets specific skin concerns such as age spots, sun damage, and fine lines by delivering precise wavelengths of light to the treatment area. This technology has been clinically proven to stimulate collagen and elastin production, resulting in smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin.

How BBL Hero & Forever Young Work

BBL Hero and Forever Young treatments work by delivering intense pulsed light (IPL) energy to the skin. The broad spectrum of light targets specific chromophores in the skin, including melanin, hemoglobin, and water. The melanin in pigmented lesions, such as age spots and freckles, absorbs the light energy, causing the pigment to break up and be absorbed by the body. Hemoglobin in blood vessels absorbs the energy, causing them to coagulate and be reabsorbed by the body, reducing redness and broken capillaries.

The heat generated by the absorption of light energy also stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin in the skin. Collagen and elastin are proteins that provide structure and elasticity to the skin, but their production decreases as we age. By stimulating new collagen and elastin growth, BBL treatments can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture and tone. With the ability to target multiple skin concerns and stimulate collagen growth, BBL Hero in Waxhaw is extremely versatile.

BBL Hero vs. BBL Forever Young

BBL Hero and BBL Forever Young are both types of BroadBand Light therapy, but they differ in their treatment goals and wavelengths of light used. BBL Hero is designed to treat specific skin concerns, such as hyperpigmentation and acne, using high-intensity light energy. On the other hand, BBL Forever Young uses a lower-intensity light to target signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, by stimulating collagen and elastin production in the skin.

Your BBL Hero/Forever Young Experience

Your BBL Hero or Forever Young experience will begin with a consultation with a qualified provider to determine your skin concerns and treatment goals. A handheld device will be applied to the treatment area during the treatment, delivering intense pulsed light to the skin. Most patients report a warm, tingling sensation during the treatment, typically lasting 15-30 minutes. After the treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling, but this typically subsides within a few hours.

Expected Results

With BBL Hero in Waxhaw, you can expect a significant improvement in your skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced, and pigmented lesions and redness will fade. Your skin will look smoother, tighter, and more youthful, giving you a boost in confidence and self-esteem. The results can be seen within a few days, with optimal results appearing after a few sessions spaced a month apart.
