BBL Laser FAQWe recommend scheduling a consultation to learn more about the BBL laser treatment as it relates to your treatment, goals, and expected results. Prior to that first appointment, however, this section of BBL laser questions and answers can help you prepare for that consultation.
Most patients describe the sensation created by the BBL laser treatment as tolerable. We use a topical numbing cream prior to the procedure to ensure your comfort. You may feel a warm sensation or what feels like light rubber band snaps. After treatment, you may feel like you have a light sunburn; this sensation passes within a few hours.
The BBL laser is a laser skin rejuvenation treatment and is not related to BBL plastic surgery. In plastic surgery, BBL refers to “Brazilian Butt Lift.” With laser skin rejuvenation, BBL refers to “Broadband light.”
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is less advanced than BBL (Broadband Light). BBL is a more targeted treatment with more precision and accuracy. BBL is also considered safer and more efficient, especially for patients with darker skin tones. For every 6 IPL treatments, you will likely require only 3 BBL treatments.
The BBL laser speeds up skin cell turnover to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections, replacing those areas with younger-looking skin. The heat that penetrates the skin makes the cells below tighter, restoring a more youthful look.
