What is BBL?

BBL logoBBL sets a new standard in treating skin conditions associated with aging, acne, loss of firmness, unwanted hair, and sun damage.

BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device on the market.  It sets new standards in treating skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles, and sun damage.


A BBL photofacial is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to improve the appearance of various skin concerns, including sun damage, age spots, freckles, redness, and uneven skin tone.

During a BBL photofacial, pulses of broad-spectrum light are delivered to the skin, targeting pigmented and vascular lesions. The light energy heats the targeted cells, causing them to break down and be absorbed by the body, leading to clearer, more evenly toned skin.

BBL photofacial treatments can effectively address a range of skin concerns, including sun damage, age spots, freckles, rosacea, broken capillaries, redness, and uneven skin texture and tone.

BBL photofacial is safe for most skin types, including fair to medium skin tones. However, it's essential to undergo a consultation with a qualified provider to determine if BBL is the right treatment for your specific skin concerns and skin type.

The number of BBL photofacial sessions needed varies depending on the individual's skin concerns, severity of the condition, and desired results. Most people undergo a series of treatments, typically 3 to 6 sessions spaced several weeks apart.

BBL photofacial treatment is generally well-tolerated, with most individuals experiencing minimal discomfort. Some may feel a slight sensation of heat or snapping on the skin during the procedure, but it is typically not painful. Topical numbing cream may be applied before the treatment to enhance comfort.

There is minimal downtime associated with BBL photofacial treatment. Some individuals may experience temporary redness, swelling, or mild discomfort immediately following the procedure, but these side effects typically subside within a few hours to a few days.

Many people begin to see improvements in their skin's appearance after just one BBL photofacial session. However, the full benefits of the treatment usually become more apparent over the following weeks as the skin continues to regenerate and improve.

The results of BBL photofacial treatment are long-lasting, but maintenance sessions may be recommended to sustain optimal results. Practicing sun protection and maintaining a good skincare routine can help prolong the benefits of the treatment.

Yes, BBL photofacial can be combined with other cosmetic treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or laser resurfacing to address multiple skin concerns and achieve comprehensive rejuvenation and improvement in skin texture and tone.

BBL photofacial is considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced provider. However, it's essential to undergo a thorough consultation and follow the provider's recommendations for optimal results and safety.

Common side effects of BBL photofacial treatment may include temporary redness, swelling, mild discomfort, or changes in pigmentation. These side effects are usually mild and transient, resolving on their own within a few days to weeks.

BBL photofacials are recommended initially as a series of 3 treatments spread 4-6 weeks apart for maximum results. Maintenance treatments are recommended once every 3 months, while skipping the summer due to tan skin/sun exposure.

BBL treatments can effectively address a range of skin concerns, including sun damage, age spots, freckles, rosacea, broken capillaries, redness, and uneven skin texture and tone, not only on the face but also on the neck, chest and shoulders. Additionally, BBL treatments can be done on the arms and hands.  BBL treatments on the hands can target age spots with great results.
