What Does BBL Photorejuvenation Treat?
Unlike lasers that remove layers of skin, BBL photorejuvenation delivers intense pulsed light (IPL) energy through the skin’s surface to leave you with a clearer, more even complexion.
BBL improves the appearance of conditions including:
- Facial redness
- Broken capillaries
- Age spots
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage
We often combine BBL treatments with MOXI™ laser treatments for even better results.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for BBL Photorejuvenation?
This treatment is ideal for anyone looking for a quick, no-downtime solution to photoaging on the face, neck, or chest. You should not have a BBL photorejuvenation treatment if you have recently been tanning or if you have a darker skin complexion. We’ll be happy to chat with you about better approaches for your skin, such as a chemical peel or a topical product.

How Does BBL Photorejuvenation Work?
The different spectrums of light energy in BBL are each attracted to the brown and red shades of pigment in the skin. During treatment, the beams of light hit this pigmentation and dismantle it. As the skin heals, the treated spots will slough off. The pulsed light also heats the skin and stimulates collagen production, which helps the skin restore some of its natural condition.
What Is it Like to Get a BBL Photofacial?
Most people are pleasantly surprised by just how comfortable and gentle BBL treatments are! And they’re quick, too: Although time varies depending upon the area being treated, the average treatment time is 30 to 45 minutes. Because the treatment is so gentle, you can even return to your usual routine right away.
