If you're searching for an effective solution to restore your skin's youthful, radiant glow, a broadband light (BBL) photofacial could be just what you need. At About Face & Body Medical Spa in Katy, TX, we specialize in this advanced, noninvasive therapy to address various skin concerns. Broadband light photofacial, often known as BBL, is a high-tech treatment that uses intense light energy to heat the upper layers of your skin gently. This heat stimulates your skin cells to regenerate, ultimately promoting new collagen production. The newly generated collagen helps restore your skin to its natural beauty, making it smoother, vibrant, and younger-looking.

What does a BBL photofacial target?

BBL photofacials are capable of treating a wide array of skin conditions. It's particularly effective at addressing issues related to aging and sun exposure, such as:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Redness
  • Pigmentation spots

What does your skin look like immediately after a BBL photofacial?

Right after the BBL photofacial treatment at About Face & Body Medical Spa, it's common for patients to notice slight redness and warmth, similar to mild sunburn. This is a typical reaction to the heat generated by the BBL device, which usually subsides within a few hours. Additionally, some of your pigmentation spots may appear darker, but this is a positive sign. These spots will flake off over the subsequent days, unveiling more evenly toned skin.

What can you expect from the results of a BBL photofacial?

The full effects of a BBL photofacial are often seen gradually, over weeks following the treatment. As BBL works beneath the skin's surface, it targets pigmentation issues and promotes collagen production, leading to a significant improvement in the skin's tone and texture. While immediate redness is noticeable, the fading of dark spots and overall enhancement of skin can be observed within a week, improving further over time. It's worth noting that the most successful results often require a series of treatments, typically scheduled a month apart.

What's involved in BBL photofacial aftercare?

Just as with any skin treatment, aftercare is crucial in BBL photofacial treatments. Applying a broad-spectrum SPF daily is necessary to protect your skin from direct sun exposure, especially as your skin will be more sensitive following the treatment. Additionally, exposure to intense heat sources, such as saunas and hot showers, should be avoided for at least 48 hours post-treatment. At About Face & Body Medical Spa, we provide personalized aftercare instructions tailored to your skin type and specific treatment plan.
