What is BroadBand Light (BBL)?
BroadBand Light (BBL) is a precise, non-invasive, innovative treatment targeting sun damaged and aging skin. The BBL device uses the energy of pulsing light to heat your skin, which stimulates the generation of collagen. The photothermal energy also treats redness and pigmented lesions caused by fine blood vessels and melanin.
Here at Bonness Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa Bonness we offer traditional BBL Forever Young, BBL Hero, and BBL Forever Clear. The only difference between BBL Forever Young and BBL Hero is that the handpiece is four times faster and offers twice as much cooling, allowing for a faster more pain-free treatment. BBL Forever Clear uses the power of broadband light to zap stubborn acne. It utilizes a combination of blue, yellow, and infrared light to eliminate bacteria, reduce inflammation, and promote the body’s natural healing process to clear acne.
BBL can be used to treat any area of your body with sun damage, acne, or aging concerns, including: face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, legs, arms, and back of the hands.
A study presented at the 2012 Society of Investigative Dermatology Annual Meeting discusses how “BBL treatment can restore gene expression pattern of… aged human skin to resemble young skin.” Read the full text of the Broadband Light treatment study.
