BroadBand Light Therapy (or BBL) uses regenerating technology to enhance the aesthetics of the skin, and also makes it appear younger and smoother. It works by employing therapeutic light energy that gently warms the top layer of skin and generates collagen production. Patients with a variety of skin issues can benefit from BBL, as it functions to address unwanted freckles, rosacea, broken blood vessels, and sun damage. It can also help create a more smooth and even skin surface texture to generate fresh, glowing skin. BBL may be added to other aesthetic treatments to fulfill your wishes and goals. Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery in Orlando, FL, offers BBL at the recommendation of Dr. Armando Soto as an advanced therapy proven to help rejuvenate our patients’ skin. We utilize the BBL™ and BBL HERO platforms by Sciton® to ensure each treatment is fast and provides the highest quality results.
A great candidate for BBL is anyone dealing with hyperpigmentation or heavily textured skin. These conditions may be due to sun damage, damaged capillaries, rosacea, or acne. BBL can also help to make the skin appear more youthful by igniting the regeneration of collagen. Depending on the type of modality and filter used for the treatment, BBL can be utilized as a therapy and/or daily maintenance for an array of skin issues. Prior to undergoing treatment, we will discuss how BBL technology can help achieve your aesthetic goals.

How is Broadband Light Therapy Performed?
After customizing the appropriate treatment plan, the settings of the BBL or BBL HERO system will be adjusted to fit the needs of your skin. Before beginning the procedure, your eyes will be covered to protect them from the light of the laser. We will then lightly pass the laser over your skin while concentrating on the treatment locations. The amount of time necessary for your procedure will change, depending upon the issue being treated and if any other treatments were completed during the BBL procedure. BBL procedures can typically be finished in about an hour or less.
