What Is BBL?

BBL is a nonsurgical, quick way to get the beautiful skin you’ve always wanted. BBL (Broadband Light) is an effective way to treat many skin problems – read on for some more information about the benefits of BBL! 

The power of light

BBL uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to reach deep into the layers of the skin. The light stimulates the production of new collagen, a protein that is vital for beautiful, firm, youthful looking skin. 

At Jeffrey C. Dawes Plastic and Dermatologic Surgery in Calgary, Forever Clear BBL is used for skin with acne – first a blue BBL is used to remove bacteria in the pores that causes acne, and then a yellow BBL is used to reduce redness and inflammation. Why deal with the wait and potential side effects of those options when you can have clearer skin in typically just a few short treatments!

BBL isn’t just used for acne, it sets a new standard in treating skin conditions associated with aging, loss of firmness, unwanted hair, and sun damage.

Our Registered Nurse/ Laser Technician can treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your treatment plan will be tailored to match your skin type, desired results and skin concerns including;

  • Freckles and age spots
  • Small blood vessels and rosacea
  • Acne
  • Aging Skin
  • Loss of firmness

How is BBL done?

The first step for BBL is to schedule a complimentary consultation with our Registered Nurse/ Laser Technician, during which she will carefully examine your skin issues to make sure that BBL can help. The treatment itself generally takes less than an hour, although multiple treatments are usually required. If multiple areas are being treated and various skin concerns are being addressed, you can expect your treatment time to take longer than one hour. 

After the procedure your skin may look red and feel warm, which is normal. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light for approximately 2 weeks after your treatment, and you must avoid direct sunlight during this time. Fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.

BBL is a quick, effective, and a safe way to remove damaged skin. It can make you look younger, give you a more even skin tone, and it takes very little time to recover from. It may be the answer for you if you want to do something about acne and other skin problems. Contact us to book a complimentary consultation with Nurse Ashley today!
