At Urban Body Laser we provide photorejuvenation in Vancouver through the use of our Broad Band Light therapy. With this powerful technology our patients are able to experience a decrease in redness, a tightening of the skin, and reverse the effects of sun damage in order to deliver a clear smooth and healthy looking complexion!
The use of Broad Band Light™ therapy applies quick pulses of light throughout the treatment area, the settings applied are customized to each patient’s unique skin type and skin concerns. BBL™ technology is the only photorejuvenation system that can set skin temperature accurately in order to keep the treated area safe and comfortable throughout the entire procedure, this means consistent and concise results.
Photorejuvenation is an excellent treatment for those suffering with hyperpigmentation. It works to deliver a more even complexion, reduced pigmentation (or age spots) on not only the face but also the hands, neck and decoletté. Over time the damaging rays from the sun can create unwanted pigmentation, photorejuvenation effectively restores the skin’s youthful appearance and works to reverse the damage caused by the sun.
Photorejuvenation also effectively treats rosacea and vascular lesions to reduce the appearance of capillaries often seen around the nose and cheeks, redness and flushing.
What type of training has my medical esthetician received?
Our Medical Estheticians have received the industry’s top and most comprehensive training from the doctors and medical practitioners of the BBL patented technology. Urban Body Laser also provides our practitioners with extensive in-house training to ensure a safe and successful treatment.
What is a BBL Treatment?
Photorejuvenation through the use of Broadband Light therapy utilizes the technology of pulsed light to deliver excellent results. By treating the skin with quick and powerful bursts of light, the energy created penetrates beneath the skin’s surface, where it then targets unwanted brown pigment or melanin. The heat from BBL treatment breaks down this pigment where it will then typically darken and rise to the surface of the skin.
What areas can be treated?
Just about any area of the body can benefit from photorejuvenation, however the areas of the body most prone to skin damage including the face, neck, hands, chest and shoulders are most commonly treated.

In the 24-48 hours after treatment you’ll likely begin to see your pigment raise to the surface like little scabs, this is completely normal, do not pick at your skin! These spots will naturally slough off in the coming week or so.
