BBL Photofacial

BBL Photofacial is a corrective phototherapy treatment that uses Broadband Light (BBL) to target signs of aging, sun damage, and other skin conditions.
 
This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, making it clearer, smoother, and more vibrant.

What conditions does it treat?
BBL Photofacial treats brown pigmentation such as freckles and age spots. BBL also treats vascular issues such as redness, small blood vessels, and rosacea as well as aging skin, uneven skin texture, and loss of firmness.

How does BBL Photofacial work?
The light energy delivered by BBL will precisely deliver laser energy to specific targets in your skin. gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. If brown spots are the target, BBL penetrates the skin to reach the pigment. The particles of the pigment left behind will peel or slough off within 7-14 days. If redness is the target, blood vessels in the superficial layers of the skin absorb the laser energy which causes them to close. Over the course of several weeks, the body continues to absorb the destroyed vessel remnants.

Additional Questions

What happens during the treatment?


Thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment your provider may place a topical anesthetic on your skin to reduce the sensation during the procedure. Prior to the treatment, the area will be measured with motion tracking technology to ensure the area is treated evenly. The provider will treat each measured section by rolling the Halo hand piece over the skin until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.




What does Halo feel like?


With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most patients experience a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations, but are generally comfortable. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 30 to 60 minutes, or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels. We take measures to cool you off after your treatment.




What is the downtime after Halo laser treatment?


Halo Laser Treatment produces expected side effects, often referred to as “down-time”. The intensity and duration of your side effects depends on the aggressiveness of your treatment and your individual healing characteristics. Generally, patients who are treated more aggressively experience more intense and longer lasting side effects. Conversely, some patients who receive a less aggressive treatment may experience side effects of greater-than-expected magnitude. Notify your physician if the severity of your side effects becomes more than you expected. In addition, redness, swelling and pinpoint bleeding may also occur. You may experience more severe swelling around and below the eyes one-day post treatment. Occasionally, oozing can occur, in isolated areas, for a few days. You will notice some swelling and redness over the next few days. Swelling may be significant and cause some discomfort. The worst swelling is usually in the morning, particularly around the eyes. The skin will start to look “bronzed” and little dark dots will appear on the treated area. Some patients may also experience itching during the healing process. You may notice a “sandpaper” texture a few days after treatment. Your skin will feel dry, and begin to peel or flake. This treated tissue is working its way out of your body as new, fresh skin is regenerated. This sloughing skin is a normal result of Halo laser treatment; most patients complete this process in 5-7 days.




How soon after my treatment can I return to normal activities?


5-7 days after a treatment on the face. (On other areas, such as neck/chest/hands/arms, or any area off the face where healing is slower, the process may take up to 2 weeks to feel smooth).




When will I see results?


You will see initial results seven days after your Halo treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest pigmentary improvement in the first two to three weeks. This is followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to improve for months.




How long will my results last?


Halo results will last for years to come, but you should continue to keep your skin protected at all times using UV sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional Halo treatment you get will only improve the results, giving you even better looking skin.
