Broad Band Light (BBL™) Skin Rejuvenation delivers light energy to gently heat the upper layers of skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate the skin cells to regenerate. It targets and breaks down pigmentation and sun spots. It also shuts down small, visible blood vessels resulting in an improvement in the appearance of rosacea and fine capillaries. In addition, the light energy penetrates deep into the skin to boost the body’s natural ability to fight the appearance of ageing. It results in naturally beautiful skin and visibly younger looking skin, year after year.
Before the Treatment
Prior to any skin treatment at COCO Skin Clinic you will receive a thorough consultation with our Medical Professional to determine if this is the right treatment for you. During this consultation, you will be able to ask questions and have any concerns addressed.
We recommend that you use broad spectrum SPF50+ sunscreen daily. It is important to avoid extended sun exposure. Avoiding a tan including artificial tans such as spray tans prior to your treatment is also important. We will take a medical history including a list of medications to ensure that there are no contraindications to your treatment.
During the Treatment
The procedure has minimal discomfort. First, we must remove any trace of skincare products and makeup from your skin. You will be asked to wear goggles as eye protection and a test patch will be performed to determine your skins reaction. During the treatment you will experience short “rubber band snap” sensation followed by mild warmth. Your treatment provider will alternate between different settings to address different skin concerns.
After the Treatment
You are likely to experience some redness in the treatment area that will resolve within a few hours. Treated capillaries may disappear immediately or they may darken to a deep purple colour before being absorbed by the body. Any treated pigmentation in the area will darken over the following days before breaking down and fading or flaking off. Depending on the intensity of the treatment, you may also experience mild swelling in the area. Hence, we recommend leaving at least 1 week between your BBL™ Skin Rejuvenation treatment and any special social event. You can apply make-up and return to work and resume most of your activities immediately after your treatment.
