Photofacial and photorejuvenation treatments are gaining in popularity… and for good reason- because they work! Our BBL photorejuvenation treatments are capable of fighting the visible signs of aging and helping your skin appear younger.
What is BBL Photorejuvenation?
Put simply, BBL or Broadband Light photorejuvenation is a type of non-invasive cosmetic treatment that makes use of intense light therapy.
How Does BBL Photorejuvenation Work?
BBL photorejuvenation works by sending intense visible light and infrared light beam into the skin, thus making them reach the dermis and the epidermis layers. These light waves keep your skin genes active and prevent it from showing any visible signs of aging.
Initially, this treatment aims to restructure the skin cells and molecules in order to rejuvenate them and keep them fresh. Our BBL treatments utilize the highest quality equipment found on the market and help you in retaining the youthful elasticity of your skin while also keeping it tight.
With the completion of your treatments your skin will start improving in terms of structure, texture, pigmentation and you will be able to restore your youthful and glowing skin.
Benefits of BBL Photorejuvenation
This process of changing the skin’s structure into something more youthful helps you bid goodbye to wrinkles! This treatment also leads to a stable and balanced collagen deposition in the skin. Overall, BBL photorejuvenation provides multiple benefits to your skin. It has proven to be effective in treating various skin issues. Here are some of the most useful advantages of this technique:
- Helps you get rid of/ reduce acne
- Enhances your skin texture
- Evens out the skin tone
- Reduces wrinkles
- Can reduce facial hair
BBL photorejuvenation is an intense treatment that provides a substantial improvement in the skin’s appearance, however unlike more invasive procedures that may require you to go under the knife there is very little down time. You can expect mild swelling and redness, but both generally subside within 24 hours.
Who is a BBL Treatment Right For?
BBL treatments can be adjusted in their intensity to provide results for a wide range of skin conditions and maturity. If you suffer from pigmentation issues, fine line, wrinkles, un-even skin texture, sagging or sun damage than this is an effective treatment for you.
Many media-spas may claim to provide photorejuvenation treatments however very few actually provide high quality and powerful equipment. At Urban Body Laser we use the Sciton BBL for our treatments. It is the only device that has been proven to change the expression of genes associated with aging, longevity, and increased lifespan to provide the most dramatic results.
How Many Treatment Are Required?
The number of treatments required is dependent on the following:
• The total area of the treatment – the larger the area to be covered, the more time it will take to get the photofacial done
• The severity of skin issues – if your skin has more advanced signs of aging and sun damage more treatments may be required
• Skin pigmentation – if you have more pigmentation in your skin, your photofacial might last for a longer duration of time.
On average for optimal results a complete photofacial takes about 5 treatments across 2-5 months, depending upon the situation of the skin.
