Broadband Light Therapy (BBL) with Renova Aesthetics

In today’s fast-paced world, self-care and skincare have become paramount. One of the latest innovations in the world of beauty and skincare is Broadband Light Therapy, commonly known as BBL. This revolutionary treatment has been gaining popularity for its remarkable results in rejuvenating the skin and addressing various skin concerns. In this article, we will dive into the world of BBL, exploring what it is, how it works, its benefits, and why you should consider it at Renova.

What is BBL?

Broadband Light Therapy, or BBL, is a cutting-edge skincare treatment that utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL) to target a wide range of skin imperfections. It is a non-invasive and gentle procedure that can address concerns such as sun damage, age spots, redness, and more. BBL works by delivering pulses of light energy deep into the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing process.

How Does BBL Work?

BBL works its magic by delivering pulses of intense light energy deep into the skin’s layers. This energy is absorbed by specific target areas, such as pigmented spots or blood vessels, while leaving the surrounding skin untouched. It stimulates collagen production, helping to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, and fade age spots. BBL can also target acne and unwanted hair, making it a versatile option for those seeking clearer, smoother skin.

The Many Benefits of BBL:

  • Skin Rejuvenation: BBL stimulates collagen production, leading to firmer and more youthful-looking skin.
  • Sun Damage Repair: Say goodbye to sunspots and freckles as BBL targets and reduces them effectively.
  • Rosacea and Redness Reduction: BBL can alleviate redness and vascular lesions associated with conditions like rosacea.
  • Hair Removal: BBL can also be used for hair removal on various parts of the body.
  • Acne Treatment: Some medical spas offer BBL as an acne treatment, as it can destroy the bacteria responsible for acne.

Why Choose BBL at Renova Aesthetics?

When considering BBL, it’s essential to choose a reputable medical spa with experienced professionals. Here’s why:

  • Expertise: Renova’s practitioners are well-trained and experienced in administering BBL treatments safely and effectively.

BBL Forever Bare – Laser Hair Reduction

BBL Forever Bare – Laser Hair Reduction

We all know that the process of shaving and/or waxing of body hair can be painful and time consuming. Our favorite solution for removing body hair is the Forever Bare BBL treatment. Here’s everything you need to know about the treatment, preparation, and follow-up care.

WHAT IS Forever Bare BBL?

Forever BARE BBL is a comfortable way to eliminate unwanted hairs. Also known as Laser Hair Reduction. Using Broadband technology (pulsed light therapy) to deliver photothermal energy to the hair follicle. The rapid short pulses of the energy causes the hair follicle to stop producing hair without harming the surrounding tissue.

Any area can be treated – Face, legs, arms, under arms, bikini area, chest, shoulders and back. Since not all hairs grow at the same time, multiple treatments are recommended in order to treat all three stages of growth: Anagen, catagen, and telogen. Typically we recommend 5 treatments to receive a 50% to 90% reduction.  These treatments are suggested to be 6 wks apart.

How Does It Feel?

During the treatment a clear gel is applied to the skin. The energy is delivered through a cool applicator so there is minimal discomfort. During the treatment you may experience a warm sensation in the treatment area. Mild redness may appear in the treated area but should dissipate shortly after treatment or by end of day, depending on your sensitivity.

More Information:

Treat time varies depending on the size of the area being treated but generally it takes less than 20 minutes. Numbing the treated area is usually not necessary as the BBL technology is very tolerable.

All waxing, tweezing and/or threading has to stop during the course for the laser hair treatments. Shaving, however, is allowed as it will not thicken the area.

Self tanners should also not be used during the course of treatments. BBL can detect melanin in the skin so you want to be at your fairest skin tone when you have treatment. (For dark skin tones we recommend a YAG laser) The best time to have Laser Hair Reduction treatments is over fall and winter, when any summer tan has faded. You’ll be bikini ready by spring!
