BBL: More Powerful Than Typical IPL

BroadBand Light Treats a Range of Conditions for Los Angeles-Area Patients

Doctors are able to treat numerous cosmetic skin concerns with intense pulsed light, known as IPL. The Los Angeles area's Cosmetic Surgery Institute uses a particularly powerful IPL technology known as BBL. Short for BroadBand Light, BBL by Sciton allows for the application of various wavelengths for customized, effective treatments.

BBL can be used to reduce the appearance of freckles, age spots, and other pigmented lesions, as well as small red bumps known as cherry angiomas, visible veins known as telangiectasias, and a chronic skin redness known as rosacea. The BBL device can also treat acne by killing the bacteria that cause pimples and other flareups, then reducing existing inflammation and encouraging natural healing.

Our team is available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about BBL in the Los Angeles area, including Riverside, Palm Springs, and all of Palm Desert. Request a complimentary consultation online or call (760) 837-0364 to discuss your options.

What to Expect from a BBL IPL Procedure

As with many light-based treatments, BBL works by sending energy into the skin in the form of light. This energy is converted into heat when it encounters certain cells, such as pigmented cells that are darker than the cells around them. BBL also prompts the creation of new collagen, which helps skin to be smooth and resilient. This can be especially effective on skin that features sun damage, shows signs of aging, or both.

A BBL treatment can be completed in as little as 10 to 15 minutes, but the length of the session will depend on how many areas are being treated and how large they are. Note that multiple treatment sessions may be necessary in order to achieve the best results.

Though the treatment involves light and heat, the BBL device is designed to minimize discomfort. Many patients find that they are comfortable throughout their BBL session. Anyone concerned about how it will feel can discuss their options during their initial consultation.

Lorem Ipsum

Expect the treated skin to look red for several hours after a BBL session, with the coloring and related sensations, similar to a sunburn, potentially lasting for one or two days. Once these effects clear naturally on their own, many patients notice a positive visible change—often within just a few days. Lesions treated with BBL should begin to clear after a week or two. Surface spots will flake away, while visible veins will collapse and be absorbed into the body, taking their distinctive redness with them.

The lady at the front was wonderful. They were able to break down all the post op instructions for my recovery time and did a really good job. So far everything looks really good and scarring was minimal to none.
