1Can BBL really stop the clock on the appearance of aging skin?
Yes! It was proven in a long-term clinical
study. Patients received regular BBL
treatments over the course of a decade. At
the end of the study, doctors judged the
patients to appear 11 years younger than
their actual age. In other words, they looked
younger than when the study began.
2At what age should I start BBL treatments?
BBL isn’t just a beauty
treatment. It’s a preventive regimen—
possibly the best investment anyone
can make in his or her skin. Both men
and women with almost any skin type
can protect themselves against the sun
and environmental damage that adds up over time. In fact, the best time to think about the effects of aging is before they appear. Since the ten-year study shows that regular BBL treatments stop the skin’s appearance of aging…why wait?
3How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed varies
from patient to patient, and your clinician
will personalize a plan based on the level
of improvement you desire. Your clinician
may also combine your treatment with
other popular aesthetic procedures to
optimize your results.
Remember that regular treatments—at
least once a year—were proven to make
patients look ten years younger than
when they first started
4What will happen during the procedure?
Your eyes will be protected with safety
shields or glasses. Typically, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, however your clinician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas.
You may feel a quick, warm sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed.
5Am I a good candidate for BBL?
Your clinician can fine tune
BBL for your skin type and for your
ideal results. The long term effects have
been proven in most skin types, including
people with olive to darker skin. Men,
women, fair, dark…almost anyone can enjoy
the benefits of BBL.
6How long will it take to recover?
This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to apply makeup, return to work and resume most of your activities immediately.
7What should I expect after the treatment?
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated area followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, 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. Your clinician will provide you with complete information about the post treatment care and results.
8What aftercare plan do I need?
It is important to follow your clinician’s
treatment plan. You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your treated skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
