Laser skin rejuvenation is designed to improve the skin’s appearance by treating wrinkles, sun damage, skin laxity, brown spots, spider veins and more. Laser skin rejuvenation has a number of advantages over other resurfacing procedures, including chemical peels and microdermabrasion, in that it significantly reduces or eliminates side effects such as discomfort, bleeding and bruising. Different types of laser treatments are used to treat different skin conditions.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation With BroadBand Light

At The Aesthetic Center in Fairfield County BroadBand Light (BBL™) is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active lifestyles, and sun damage. BBL™ energy allows your clinician to precisely treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions.

What Is Broadband Light?

BroadBand Light (BBL)™ is the world’s most powerful IPL device on the market. BBL™ enables treatment of multiple skin conditions with various wavelengths seamlessly using Smart Filters.

  • Acne
  • Pigmented Lesions, such as freckles and age spots
  • Vascular Lesions, such as cherry angiomas, telangiectasias, and rosacea
  • Deeper Lesions / Darker Skin Types
  • Hair Removal
  • Skin Laxity with SkinTyte™

How Does Broadband Light Work?

The light energy delivered by the BroadBand Light will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.

What Is The BBL Photofacial Like?

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 an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. The procedure is gentle, non-invasive, and safe. There is generally no need for a topical anesthetic, but your clinician will discuss all of your options with you.

What Should I Expect After A BBL Photofacial?

You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine lines and pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results from laser treatments are usually not immediate, taking several months to appear, and a number of treatment sessions may be needed to achieve the desired results.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Broadband Light?

Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.

What Is The Recovery From A BBL Photofacial?

This is a non-invasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases after BBL Fairfield County patients are able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most activities immediately. In general, improvement is progressive and gradual, occurring over 2-8 weeks after each treatment, depending upon condition treated.  You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your skin with SPF 30 or above whenever you go outdoors.
