Broadband Light Therapy (BBL™)
Broadband Light Therapy uses intense light energy to help your skin heal and develop new, undamaged skin cells.
What is Broadband Light Therapy (BBL™)?
Broadband Light Therapy (BBL™) treatments are quick, comfortable sessions that give you clear, smooth, younger skin with little to no downtime. We use the Sciton® Forever Young BBL™ Laser treatment that stimulates below the skin, triggering the natural healing processes that help new, youthful skin to emerge. This allows your body to naturally produce healthier skin, reducing the appearance of aging, redness, uneven skin pigmentation and tone, and even acne.

Sun spots and age spots

What Happens During a Treatment with Broadband Light Therapy (BBL™)?
The Broadband Light Therapy machine that we use at Pure 111 is the Sciton® Forever Young BBL laser. The treatment is performed in stages. We start by applying a topical numbing cream and covering your eyes with a safety shield or goggles to protect your eyes from the intense light energy. You should not feel any discomfort, but you may feel a slight warmth. Some people describe the treatment sensation as tolerable rubber band snaps. We check in with you regularly to monitor your comfort. The procedure itself may take a few minutes to an hour, depending on your needs.
What Can I Expect After a Broadband Light Therapy (BBL™) Treatment?
Following your BBL™ laser treatment, you may experience what feels like a sunburn. Your skin may be red and have mild swelling. These symptoms will resolve within a few hours. If your treatment plan includes pigment correction, you may experience a “peppering effect,” where your pigment will appear darker before it improves. This effect can last between seven and 10 days. 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 post-treatment care and results. It is extremely important that you follow our aftercare instructions to the letter. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and we advise you avoid direct sun exposure for a minimum of four weeks. We also recommend you protect your skin by wearing a hat, sunglasses, and a good sunscreen anytime you venture outdoors.
How Often Should I Have a Broadband Light Therapy (BBL™) Treatment?
Most patients require more than one BBL™ laser treatment to see full results. Since the BBL™ laser is so gentle, the results come in stages as the signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, redness, and other skin imperfections slowly improve. We recommend that you schedule follow-up appointments for us to evaluate your skin and recommend when additional treatments are needed.
