BBL® in Smithtown, NY
BBL®, also known as a photo-facial or BroadBand Light laser treatment, is one of the most effective cosmetic solutions for sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, rosacea, spider veins, acne scars, and uneven skin tone and texture. When used consistently, BBL® BroadBand Light will help you achieve a younger and healthier-looking facial appearance.
In addition to improving the appearance of your skin, the BBL® from Sciton® is a preventive regimen that will go a long way in protecting your skin against the progressive impacts of aging and sun damage.
Am I a Good Candidate for BBL® Laser Treatment?
While a facial enhancement surgery, such as a facelift, can address concerns like loose and lax skin, it cannot treat hyperpigmentation or texture concerns. Therefore, you need to seek additional treatment.
The BBL® treatment is generally safe and appropriate for most skin tones and types. You can benefit from this treatment if you have healthy skin but are unhappy with imperfections like an uneven skin tone, rough skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and visible spider veins.
Generally, a good candidate for BBL® laser treatment should:
- Be in good physical health
- Be a non-smoker or willing to quit smoking
- Understand what the treatment can achieve and have realistic expectations
Our team will evaluate your concerns and skin tone during your consultation to determine if this treatment is right for you.
Who Is Not a Good Candidate for BBL® Laser Treatment?
Although BBL® is known to be generally safe, not everyone should have it. For instance, although the effect of the treatment on pregnancy is not well established, the consensus is that all laser treatments should be avoided during pregnancy. Therefore, if you are pregnant, it may not be the right time to consider a BBL® treatment.
Besides, if you would like to address skin pigmentation issues associated with melasma, BBL® laser treatment may not be the best treatment for you. In this case, MOXI® and HALO® laser treatments may be better options.

How Is a BBL® Treatment Performed?
Skin preparation starts several weeks before the actual treatment. For instance, you must avoid sun exposure and tanning creams for a couple of weeks.
The treatment should take about 30 minutes, but this can vary slightly on a case-to-case basis.
During the treatment session, your BBL® provider will apply a cooling cream and topical anesthesia to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. You will be required to wear goggles or protective shields to protect your eyes.
The BBL® device will then deliver varying laser wavelengths to the deeper layers of the skin in the treatment area. This will stimulate the production of collagen, which will significantly improve the appearance of your skin and leave you looking much younger.
What Is BBL® Laser Recovery Like?
Your BBL® treatment is minimally invasive and requires very little or no downtime. Any discomfort you experience should not significantly affect your ability to perform your day-to-day duties; however, you may be required to avoid physical exercise, alcohol, and caffeine for at least 24 hours.
While you can return to work almost immediately, you may have to consider a social downtime because your skin will undergo noticeable changes for about a week after the treatment.
What Results Can I Expect From My BBL® Treatment?
BBL® BroadBand Light can significantly improve several skin imperfections. The results will not be immediate, but with time, you will notice a significant improvement in the texture, tone, and appearance of the skin in the treatment area.
In the end, BBL® treatment should leave you looking younger and healthier. If you go for only one treatment session, the results will likely last a couple of months. For longer-lasting results, you will need a treatment plan that includes multiple treatment sessions.
