Sun damage and environmental pollutants adversely affect the skin as a person ages. This leads to wrinkles and pigment aberrations, especially on facial skin.

A laser peel can effectively reduce or eliminate these problems. It is also an excellent way to reduce visible lines around the mouth and eyes without involving cosmetic surgery.

Various types of lasers are used to perform peels. However, Contour TRL is widely regarded as one of the safest and most successful laser skin resurfacing treatments available to patients today. Focused board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides laser skin resurfacing to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding communities in The Silver State.

What is Contour TRL Erbium Resurfacing?

Contour TRL is an Erbium Yag laser which has been developed for skin resurfacing by eliminating a variable depth of aging and damaged skin. It can successfully reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles as well as pigment irregularities. It also enhances the overall thickness and pliability of the skin by promoting the growth of fresh collagen.

After the treatment, the surface of the skin regenerates new and healthy cells. This gives the skin a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

The treatment depth depends on the skin condition, desired results, and acceptable downtime of each patient. Unlike plastic surgery, this is an in-office procedure which is individualized to the particular skin goals of a patient.

How Does Contour TRL Laser Peel Work?

Contour TRL safely removes a layer of skin to a depth determined by the physician. The depth of treatment will depend on the patient’s skin condition, desired outcome, and expectation for downtime. As Contour TRL impacts the skin tissue with micron precision, the physician can treat the patient’s skin with the accurate amount of energy required.

Laser treatment promotes the production of fresh collagen which enhances the thickness and resilience of the skin. The surface of the skin will also develop new and healthy cells. This offers the skin a youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

What Conditions can be treated with Contour TRL?

  • Deep wrinkles, even in challenging areas such as the eyes and mouth
  • Scars
  • Poor skin tone and texture
  • Actinic Keratoses
  • Solar spots

What will happen during the Procedure?

The treatment provider will thoroughly cleanse the skin in the treatment site and place protective eye shields. They will then position the laser handpiece over the skin and hold it in place while the computer-guided scanner moves the laser ray over the treatment region. The procedure typically lasts for 15 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.

What Should I Expect Immediately Following the Treatment?

The patient may have redness and a sunburn-type sensation right after the treatment. There may be some inflammation in the treated sites as well.

The physician will advise the patient on aftercare following the treatment. This may include analgesics and using an ointment to ensure that the skin stays moist. Prudent cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients for laser skin resurfacing from Las Vegas, NV and other neighborhoods and cities in this part the country.

Halo is the first Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) in the world. It is a revolutionary skin resurfacing treatment. Halo provides non-ablative and ablative energy to the same microscopic area that is being treated.

HFL has proven itself to be a winner and comes without the downtime or discomfort that may usually occur with a laser treatment.  

Committed board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides laser skin resurfacing and various other procedures to patients in Las Vegas, NV and other neighborhoods and towns in this region of the southwest.

Technology

Halo delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to the same tiny treatment area to provide excellent outcomes with minimal downtime. This new laser technology provides patients with precise, predictable, and effective results that improve the appearance of various skin problems. The laser skin resurfacing treatment is ideal for candidates who want to avoid cosmetic surgery.

The system combines intelligent energy delivery with Dynamic Thermal Optimization which offers patients targeted, safe, and effective outcomes. The laser technology is convenient to use and almost pain-free. It is a benchmark for laser resurfacing treatments of the future due to the safe and robust hybrid solution it offers.

Key Aspects of the Treatment

Visible signs of aging such as discoloration, scars, laxity, and wrinkles are a result of extended sun exposure, an active lifestyle and routine wear and tear of the skin. An ablative or coagulative fractional treatment enables the epidermis to recover fasters so long as the dermis is undamaged.

Ablative fractional resurfacing is a proven treatment that ablates aged tissue with less thermal damage and is associated with mild to moderate levels of downtime and morbidity.

On the other hand, non-ablative fractional resurfacing leads to thermal injury and tissue coagulation with lower morbidity levels. Halo offers patients an improved experience while providing safe and effective results without involving plastic surgery.

Advantages

Halo provides patients the following advantages:

  • It can treat pores with a combination of ablative and non-ablative wavelengths
  • The outcomes establish in only one to two treatment sessions rather than three to five traditional resurfacing treatments
  • The treatment is more convenient and comfortable in comparison to traditional fractional resurfacing as it does not require nerve blocks
  • Quicker recovery

Aesthetic benefits include:

  • Reduces the effects of Sun Damage/Dyschromia
  • Addresses aging signs
  • Reduces the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Offers evenness to an uneven skin tone
  • Improves poor texture
  • Corrects discoloration
  • Mitigates fine lines
  • Improves the presence of light scars

Halo is effective in the treatment of bodily and facial skin in most areas. Patients seek Halo on areas such as the chest, neck, hands, arms, scarring, and legs.

Outcomes

The Halo treatment offers excellent enhancements to skin texture and pigment. Patients can expect beautiful results in one to two treatment sessions. Older non-hybrid treatments typically require five to fix treatments to establish similar texture changes without any comparable improvements in pigmented skin.

Halo provides patients with a unique treatment experience. The session is almost painless and involves the use of only a topical anesthetic rather than nerve blocks. Furthermore, patients can even use makeup within a span of 24 hours following Halo.

Halo addresses long-term skin damage issues such as:

  • Sun damage
  • Scar revision
  • Apparent signs of aging
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Enlarged pores
  • Poor texture
  • Discoloration
  • Fine lines

Minimal Downtime

Halo offers patients the excellent outcomes with minimal downtime. It provides the best of both worlds by combining profound dermal revitalization with epidermal renewal.

This offers a synergistic improvement which is not possible with any other treatment. Accomplished cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides laser skin resurfacing to patients in Las Vegas, NV and nearby areas in The Sagebrush State.

Excerpts from a Few Patient Reviews on Yelp

Lindsay H., Las Vegas, NV

5.0 star rating 6/4/2018

This review is so longer overdue! My laser technician, Lynette, is the absolute best in the business! She is experienced and thorough with everything she does and she is the sweetest gal ever! I have been seeing Lynette for all my skin care needs for about 4 years. The past 2 years I have been a loyal monthly client doing almost every treatment she offers.

Over 10 years ago I had a terrible experience with a laser treatment that was SO painful, caused hypo pigmentation and even left me with some scars. It took me months to heal and weeks to even feel better and ever since then I have been scared to do a deeper laser treatment. But again, this was Lynette and she knows my history and my skin so well if I was going try a more intense laser Lynette is the ONLY I would let do it.

With that being said, I had the Halo Laser done on Thursday and I am so glad I did! All my fears of laser are gone! I’m healing and my skin looks so bright and SO CLEAR! I have a few more days of healing, but WOW, it is so worth it! No complications like I had before over 10 years ago.

They allow you to numb for 1 hour in most cases. The doctor even came in while I was numbing and asked me if I had any questions or concerns before we started. On a scale of 1-10 the pain level throughout the treatment for me was a 2-3, but mostly a 2! I was shocked. I thought it would be more painful, but it wasn’t!

The technology on the laser is the best. Mapping out the measurements of the area to be treated and timed so you can feel confident it is a thorough and accurate treatment. Also, it is a dual laser meaning it’s non-ablative and ablative allowing recovery time to be quicker than traditional fraxel.

As a working Esthetician for 13 years, there is just no other person I’d trust with my skin! You’ll be in good hands with my girl Lynette! She keeps my skin looking bright and flawless.

As for Dr. Richards, aside from his surgical talent, he has an excellent bedside manner and really makes you feel comfortable when speaking with you. He is real, down to earth, affable, and doesn’t project any sort of smug or superior attitude. From what I experienced, he treats you like you’re a friend of a friend. He gives you his cell number in case you have questions or concerns, and tells you not to hesitate to call or text.

You really can’t ask for more than that, but still, he and his staff deliver.

If you are on the fence, take the time to have a consultation with Dr. Richards. The hundreds of 5 star reviews across multiple websites are not lying – they are there for a reason – and that reason is because he has earned them!

The office is really classy. The doctor has won many awards that he has displayed around the office. There is a cozy fireplace and drinks available.

I have had Botox before so really appreciated it was such a quick process. I did not have to fill out a ton of paperwork or sit with a doctor forever. I was literally in and out in 15 minutes.

I got no bruising and the results overall are fantastic. I am really really happy and will be returning.

Truly an amazing doctor and staff! I had a mommy makeover due to back pain from having twins and it has significantly helped my back pain. I am extremely happy with the doctor he knows exactly what he is doing and truly cares about his patients. The staff is very helpful and has answered all of my questions in a timely manner. Could not be more happy with this cosmetic surgeon! Truly the best in town!

5.0 star rating 10/17/2017

There is a perfectly good explanation for Dr. Bryson Richards having the number 1 spot with over 100 5 Star reviews on YELP. Because he has earned it! Because he deserves it! Because he has an incredible team!

After interviewing 5 other doctors in Las Vegas and San Diego, I knew Dr. Richards was my doctor. He listens to me but he is not afraid to give his professional and educated opinion… and has even said no to me. His confidence comforts me. And I am convinced he has magic hands. The professional and friendly staff is equally impressive. The facially is beautifully and modern.

As an Elite Yelper, I am listing all procedures I have by Dr. Richard because I would have appreciated talking to someone that had actually gone through the procedures. So, please feel free to ask me any questions. Clearly, I am not a health care professional so please limit questions as from a patient’s perspective only. He gives complete and free consults so I do suggest starting there.

Liposuction is a sought-after cosmetic surgery procedure for over 30 years now. It is a safe and effective technique that has enabled thousands of people to enhance their body contours through the targeted removal of stubborn fat deposits.

The key to success in liposuction lies in choosing a well-qualified and experienced surgeon who understands the nuances involved in liposuction techniques.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides liposuction fat removal surgery to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations in The Sagebrush State.

Professional Credentials of the Surgeon

The cordial Dr. Richards is board certified by the leading American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). He received training in advanced plastic surgery at the renowned Cleveland Clinic. He graduated from Cornell Medical School in New York City and was chief plastic surgery resident at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY.

The prudent Dr. Richards has won numerous awards and honors in recognition of his excellence and authority in the field of plastic surgery. He has also published scientific papers in cutting edge research areas related to the field of surgery.

Determining Candidacy

As a dedicated surgeon, Dr. Bryson Richards will first carefully determine the candidacy of a patient before recommending liposuction to them. According to Dr. Richards, suitable candidates are in good overall health and within 25 to 30 pounds of their ideal body weight. These people have stubborn fat pockets that have been unresponsive to healthy eating and exercise.

Why Choose an ABPS Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?

ABPS is the only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. When the patient selects an ABPS board certified plastic surgeon for liposuction fat removal surgery, they have an automatic assurance that the surgeon would have received a certain minimum number of years of training specifically in the field of plastic surgery.

ABPS board certified plastic surgeons typically invest in high-quality standards and practices, adopt state-of-the-art surgical techniques and technology, pursue on-going education, and follow the latest safety protocols to provide their patients with excellent outcomes.

Attributes of a Good Liposuction Surgeon

Patients should seek the following qualities when choosing a surgeon for liposuction fat removal:

  • Warm and compassionate, transparent, easy to communicate with
  • Inclined to educate the patient on all aspects of the surgery
  • Passionate about making a difference in patients’ lives through plastic surgery
  • Providing personalized care and attention to each patient
  • Having the ability to appreciate the innate cosmetic needs, goals, aspirations, and hopes of the patient
  • Possesses detailed knowledge of the human anatomy
  • Has an artistic perspective, an eye for detail and a sense of balance and proportion
  • Adopts advanced techniques to offer aesthetically superior results in a minimally invasive manner with reduced scarring.

A solid and responsible surgeon would be willing to provide liposuction before and after images of past patients. They may also share testimonials of previous patients as necessary.

In regards to these pictures, they can be found on the website. There could be even more pictures seen during the consultation but there is a plenitude of lipo pictures present on the website. What is amazing about these pictures is that they can be seen anywhere.

Patients who have Internet access can see these pictures from their own living room couch. If that is not possible, Internet access is now available in supermarkets nowadays and about everywhere else. Dr. Richards believes in transparency and his website is a strong testament to this.  

Ability to Treat Multiple Body Areas

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure which is most useful in contouring areas such as the flanks, buttocks, abdomen, arms, hips, and breasts. The surgeon should have the expertise to perform liposuction in all these areas with authority and skill.

Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV and other suburbs and towns in this part of Nevada for liposuction.

Broadband light therapy (BBL) is a non-invasive procedure that can help mitigate skin imperfections that might occur due to aging effects and sun damage.

The surgeon will inform the patient on various aspects of this non cosmetic surgery procedure, including its approximate costs during the pre-treatment consultation.

A committed surgeon will make sure that the patient receives the correct information on costs as well as insurance and financing to enable them to make a well-considered choice. Devoted board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides BBL | Broadband light therapy to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations across the horizon.

Financial Comparison with Surgery

Surgical skin rejuvenation procedures for the face such as a facelift plastic surgery can be much more expensive in comparison to the BBL light therapy procedure. While in the long-term, surgical treatment will likely be more sustainable justifying the costs.

However, every patient is not prepared to spend a significant amount on elective surgery. BBL therapy is a non-invasive procedure which means that it does not have costs such as general anesthesia or IV sedation associated with it as surgical procedures do.

A surgical procedure may also involve costs such as the cosmetic surgeon’s fee and surgical venue expenses or costs related to an overnight stay at the hospital which will add to the overall procedure costs.

Furthermore, surgery usually involves post-op costs such as medical tests, prescription meds, surgical accessories, and other related expenses. A laser skin rejuvenation procedure such as BBL helps the patient avoid all these costs.

Financial Factors

In comparison to plastic surgery, BBL therapy costs are substantially lesser. But the cost of the treatment can differ between two practices, and at times, even between two patients at the same practice. The below mentioned factors will influence the total procedure costs:

Practice Location

BBL therapy costs can differ marginally between practices and patients. The average cost of living varies from one region to another.

This can impact the financial considerations for goods and services, including cosmetic procedures such as BBL therapy. Practices in main metropolitan cities and busy urban centers typically have higher overhead and real estate costs. This can have an impact on the dollar amount of the BBL procedure.

Treatment Provider’s Expertise

The experience and authority of the BBL treatment provider will affect the procedure cost. Outstanding practitioners invest in the most modern techniques, pursue on-going education and follow the latest safety protocols. In such cases, the provider’s charges could be slightly higher.

Nature and Extent of Treatment

The treatment monetary amount will vary depending on the number of treatment sessions that a patient needs. The sticker price may be determined on the basis of the number of treatment sessions, or on a package rate basis according to the situation. The treatment area could be the entire face and neck, a part of the face or other areas. The total treatment cost will be calculated after accounting for these variables.

Prudent cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV and nearby areas in The Battle Born State for BBL | Broadband light therapy and various other procedures.

Laser skin resurfacing is a prudent, proven, and effective anti-aging procedure. It can revitalize the skin reducing the impact of aging, sun exposure, and certain facial skin disorders without involving cosmetic surgery.

The outcomes and recovery duration of laser skin resurfacing differ based on the size of the treatment area and the laser being used for the procedure. Treatments that are most invasive may offer substantial enhancements. However, they involve an extensive healing period of many weeks.

A milder laser skin rejuvenation treatment may mitigate some skin aberrations and may involve negligible or no downtime. Patients should consult an experienced aesthetic surgeon to understand the most suitable procedure for their individual case and the approximate recovery duration and outcomes that they may anticipate.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides laser skin resurfacing to patients in Las Vegas, NV and nearby communities in this area of the southwest.

Mild and Temporary Side Effects

Unlike plastic surgery, laser skin resurfacing may only lead to occasional side effects in individual patients. But these side effects are typically minor and resolve by themselves in a short duration. Patients commonly experience side effects such as skin redness, inflammation in the treated site, and moderate irritation similar to that caused by mild sunburn.  

In exceptional cases, laser skin resurfacing has led to side effects such as scarring, burning, or alteration in skin pigmentation. A well-trained surgeon will discuss these potential risks and complications with the patient during the pre-treatment consultation.

Expected Recovery

The patient will take around two weeks to recover after laser skin resurfacing treatment. In this duration, the treated site will heal, and a fresh layer of healthy skin will be apparent.

The recovery time after a laser skin treatment differs. The type of laser used determines the recovery duration in most cases. The recovery period is usually around two weeks after a CO2 laser treatment. Erbium laser skin resurfacing to treat fine lines and superficial wrinkles involve recovery duration of only around one week. Patients undergoing Fraxel laser treatments heal after just a few days of the treatment.

Redness or pinkness of the skin typically lasts for a longer time. It can even persist for up to many months. In case this occurs, patients may use makeup to cover the discoloration until it subsides.

Patients considering laser skin resurfacing should plan to remain away from work for a period of one to two weeks. The extent of the treatment will determine how long they need to take leave from work.

The recovery time for individual laser skin resurfacing patients differs in each case. The recovery duration following this procedure depends mostly on the overall health and lifestyle of the patient as well as how fast their body heals.

Is recovery painful?

Patients may experience some inflammation and discomfort during the recovery phase after laser skin resurfacing procedure.

However, the pain and discomfort can be addressed easily. The surgeon may provide the patient with pain medications to manage the discomfort. Committed cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV and neighboring communities in The Sage Brush State for laser skin resurfacing.

Broadband light (BBL) therapy is an innovative treatment to reduce aging signs and damage due to sun exposure without involving cosmetic surgery.

A new patient may not be conversant with the non-invasive BBL procedure. Therefore, the treatment provider will explain the procedure in detail during the first consultation and may also present BBL | Broadband light therapy before and after photographs.

The first concern of a responsible provider will be to educate the patient on all aspects of BBL treatment. Before and after photos can play an important role in this. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides Broadband light therapy to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations.

What are BBL Before and After Pictures?

Before and after images in case of BBL or Broadband light therapy skin rejuvenation procedure refer to a pair or group of pictures pertaining to an earlier patient who has undergone the same treatment with successful results.

The photos include images taken prior to the treatment and after the treatment at a stage when full skin enhancement effects of BBL have been established.

The treatment provider will take care to ensure that BBL before and after photographs are obtained with the patient’s consent and presented before new patients in a discreet manner.

The sole purpose of the provider in this case is to use the photos as a visual aid to explain the effectiveness and benefits of Broadband light therapy to new patients and help them make an informed choice.

Advantages

When a new patient is considering a unique non-plastic surgery technique such as BBL therapy, they may feel uncertain or apprehensive about the likely outcomes. Some patients may require only a limited treatment in one area, while some others may need more extensive procedure in multiple areas.

In some cases, the provider may recommend BBL treatment in combination with other non-invasive or injectable procedures. For a patient, it can be difficult to make the right choices to meet their personal goals. This is where the surgeon or the aesthetician can use BBL or Broadband light therapy before and after photos to help them make the correct decision.

These amazing pictures can help pave the way for a patient to make a basic decision for themselves. They can be seen during the consultation since these types of pictures for BBL are not up on the website yet. This is an important aspect that needs to be brought up during the consultation.

Dr. Richards is all about transparency. This can be ascertained by all those other pictures revealed and shown on this marvelous website. This enables people to make a crucial decision without bringing anyone else involved. It is amazing what can be seen and how clear images are with digital technology.  

Formulating Reasonable Expectations

In any cosmetic procedure, the provider will want to ensure that the patient forms reasonable expectations. This is even more important in case of non-invasive procedures because these are designed to produce subtle, natural looking results.

To ensure that the patient knows what to expect and what not to expect from the treatment, the provider could make use of BBL before and after photos at the first appointment. This will mitigate the risk of any misunderstanding occurring at a later stage, and also help the patient to achieve better satisfaction from the final results.

Photographs on the Website

The surgeon may include BBL | Broadband light therapy before and after photos in an exclusive section on their website but this is not case for this site. This does not mean these pictures are not available during the consultation (as already mentioned) which is a vital meeting that occurs before any type of treatment or procedure. The consultation is critical and this fundamental information and much more will be presented to a potential patient during this essential meeting.

Get Rid of Age Spots, Freckles, and Acne With BBL | Broadband Light TherapyYour face is the first thing that people notice. But it is also the primary area of your body that gives away your age quite easily. This could be good or bad depending on your appearance.

Harsh cleaning agents, aging effects, and sun damage can make facial skin appear tired and wrinkled. However, now there is a unique skin rejuvenation procedure that can mitigate the skin imperfections such as age spots, freckles and acne, and take years off your face.

BBL or Broadband Light Therapy, also called Intense Pulsed Light therapy, uses advanced technology to generate more youthful skin with a more even tone and texture. BBL involves negligible risk, discomfort, and downtime. It is a non-surgical procedure which is FDA-cleared for treating sun damage and facial aging.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides BBL therapy to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations across the horizon.

Commonly Treated Conditions

Some conditions that are commonly treated with BBL therapy include:

  • Pigmented Lesions (e.g., freckles, age spots)
  • Uneven Skin Texture
  • Vascular Lesions (e.g., small blood vessels)
  • Skin Firmness

How does BBL work?

BBL’s light energy will mildly heat the uppermost skin layers. The heat absorbed by the treatment areas will prompt your skin cells to produce fresh collagen. This procedure will revitalize your skin to its natural beauty making it more youthful, smoother, brighter, and dazzling. Additionally, the photo-thermal energy will remove fine vessels that lead to redness as well as decreased unwanted melanin that generates pigmented lesions.

The machine has cutting-edge cooling features which allow for the use of high-powered energy with negligible discomfort.

Numbing cream is usually unnecessary, but the provider may apply it to the treatment area for patients who find the treatment uncomfortable. BBL is a safe and effective way to attain more youthful skin. It is advisable to receive the treatment 2 to 4 times annually for best outcomes.

Areas of Treatment

BBL can address the skin in any area of the body. Sites such as the face, back of the hands, shoulders, neck, and chest are most popular for this treatment due to frequent sun exposure. Areas that usually produce best results with BBL treatment are:

  • Neck
  • Face
  • Hands
  • Chest

Treatment Experience

BBL treatment is mild, non-surgical, and safe. Each patient has a different tolerance level, but typically there is no requirement for a topical anesthetic. If you feel uncomfortable during the treatment, bring this to your provider’s notice. They will provide you a numbing cream for more sensitive regions.

Preparing for the Treatment

During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain how to prepare for the procedure. They will meticulously review all your medical information to make sure that you have a safe and effective procedure. You will be required to avoid direct sunlight or tanning bed use for some weeks before and after the treatment.

Furthermore, you will need to avoid taking specific medications that may make you more light sensitive. Committed cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides BBL therapy to patients in Las Vegas, NV and nearby areas in this region of the southwest.

What is BBL | Broadband Light Therapy?Broadband light (BBL) therapy is a non-surgical procedure to reduce aging signs and damage due to sun exposure. Although various types of non-surgical, anti-aging treatments are available today to improve the skin’s appearance, but BBL adopts a distinct approach from most of these treatments.

BBL treatment is designed to enhance the skin’s appearance by revitalizing the ribonucleic acid (RNA) in the tissue. RNA is a nucleic acid that is found in all living cells, and a robust RNA activity will enable the skin to appear more youthful and healthier.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides BBL therapy to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations.

Stanford University Research Supports BBL

As per a recent research study “Rejuvenation of Gene Expression Pattern of Aged Human Skin by BroadBand Light Treatment,” conducted by Dr. Anne S. Chang of Stanford University School of Medicine, aging cells can be functionally revitalized through BBL therapy. The study highlights that molecular changes resembling the features of younger skin occur after aged cells are treated with BBL Therapy.

BBL Light Therapy uses Pulsed Light Target technology that addresses:

  • Acne
  • Pigmented Skin (freckles, age spots)
  • Lax Skin
  • Uneven Skin Texture
  • Vascular Lesions (small blood vessels)

BBL is Suitable for the Entire Body

Rejuvenate skin on any location of the body. Mitigate aging signs and sun damage on any part of the body for brighter, more youthful skin. BBL therapy can address hyperpigmentation and restore tighter skin in the face, chest, shoulders, back, hands, neck and any other part of the body.

Rapidly Visible Outcomes

Patients report visible enhancement in the treatment sites. BBL therapy treats pigmentation lesions (lentigines and ephelides), vascular lesions (Such as telangiectasias and cherry angiomas), acne, rosacea, and enhances the skin’s texture. It improves the appearance of fine lines through prompting the production of new collagen, providing the skin with more volume and glow.

What to Expect during the Treatment

Broadband Light Therapy is non-surgical, and the patient receives the treatment in one of our luxurious, relaxed treatment rooms as a chilled sapphire crystal is applied to the skin.
