The Forever Young BBL™, or Broadband Light, is an advanced type of phototherapy applied to the top layer of the skin. Also referred to as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), BBL is typically done to face, neck, chest, and arms, the process evens complexion by diminishing pigmented lesions such as age spots, sun spots, and freckles. It can even reduce unwanted redness caused by broken capillaries. By smoothing the complexion, BBL creates younger-looking skin.
The procedure is noninvasive, and there is virtually no downtime. Known as the “lunchtime photofacial,” make-up can be applied immediately after treatment, and most patients can return to work the same day.
BBL works best on individuals with lighter complexions, and sun exposure should be avoided for several weeks before and after treatment. Multiple treatments may be required for optimal results.
At Empire Eye and Laser Center, we use the latest generation BBL system developed by Sciton. Known for its safety and versatility, the JOULE can be used to provide other laser treatments (such as ProFractional Therapy or MicroLaserPeel) at the same visit.
