What is BBL | Broadband Light Therapy?

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. This crystal delivers rapid pulses of light to the skin. The treatment takes less than one hour, and patients can immediately resume their routine activities such as working, exercise, and using makeup with no need for downtime.

Redness (akin to a flushed look) remains for 2 to 3 hours after the procedure. Certain patients with skin pigmentation issues may experience a darkening of the treated site which is followed by flaking off and fading.

How Many Treatments are required?

The number of treatment sessions will differ between patients. The treatment provider can individualize a treatment plan depending on the degree of improvement that you desire. The provider may recommend combing BBL therapy with other sought-after treatments such as dermal fillers or Botox to customize your treatment further as well as help you attain the appearance that you desire.

What to Expect after BBL Therapy?

You may experience mild redness right after the treatment. It may feel like slight sunburn at the treatment location. This should subside after some hours. It may likely last for 24 to 48 hours in some instances. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides BBL therapy to patients in Las Vegas, NV and nearby areas.
