What is BBL?

BBL stands for BroadBand Light™, the world’s most powerful technology for treating sun-damaged skin (age spots), redness/rosacea, small facial vessels, and acne. The treatment is light-based, very safe, and highly effective. Many patients combine treatment with SkinTyte™ or HALO™ for maximum results. Here at Pacific Coast Aesthetics, there are a number of different BBL treatments available, including Forever Young BBL™, eradication of acne with Forever Clear BBL™, and laser hair removal with Forever Bare BBL™. Interchangeable light filters allow us to target treatments with greater precision, and a thermoelectric monitoring assembly and sapphire cooling crystal work to maximize patient safety and comfort. BBL does more than just make your skin appear younger. Regular treatments reduce your chance of developing skin cancer by treating pre-cancerous lesions before they progress, and BBL is the only light-based treatment that can alter the expression of genes associated with aging. Try BBL for clearer, younger, and healthier-looking skin!

What is the difference between IPL and BBL?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, an older technology that uses high-intensity light to heat the upper layers of the skin, which stimulates skin cells to produce new collagen for younger- and healthier-looking skin. BBL stands for BroadBand Light™, a newer, more enhanced, and more effective version of IPL. BBL’s dual-light system penetrates deeper than IPL to target imperfections where they originate, eliminating sun-damaged age spots, vessels, redness and rosacea, and other unwanted pigment. It stimulates collagen and the development of new skin cells, decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and results in smoother, healthier-looking skin. BBL does more than just make your skin appear younger. It is the only light-based treatment that can alter the expression of genes associated with aging. Multiple interchangeable light filters allow the operator to target the delivery of energy with greater precision, and the BBL handpiece uses a thermoelectric monitoring assembly that enables its sapphire cooling crystal to continually and precisely maintain temperatures from 0 – 30° Celsius with adjustability of every degree in between. The result is improved performance and enhanced patient comfort and safety.
