During the BBL treatment
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a warm or “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. We will discuss all of your options with you.
The procedure is gentle, noninvasive, and safe. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, however, the you may choose to use it on more sensitive areas.
The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and the we will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire.
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine lines and pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated. We will provide you with complete information about the post-treatment care and results.
It is important to follow our aftercare instructions. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are immediately able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most activities.
