A BBL Photofacial can produce a remarkable improvement in skin quality and appearance, and is an appropriate treatment for the following skin conditions:
A BBL photofacial is among the most effective non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments available in the USA. The use of specific bands of light energy can renew aging skin, treat skin discolorations, remove age spots and sun spots, tighten and firm lax skin, and treat acne and rosacea. This revolutionary therapy involves the use of light energy, which heats the upper skin layers, stimulating the cells to produce higher levels of collagen and sweep away hyperpigmentation in your skin.
Specific bands of light have been proven to stimulate natural healing, helping the skin cells to function as they did in your younger years. When the skin is exposed to the sun’s UV rays, the cells react by producing more pigment. The BBL photofacial treatment device at StarkMD Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center can successfully restore sun-damaged skin. Depending on the condition of your skin, the BBL Photofacial device is adjusted to emit specific types of light waves.
The bands of light trigger a response in your skin:
The light energy can treat rosacea, excessive flushing, or the inflammation associated with acne breakouts.
Sun damage can create yellowish-brown areas of the skin, which can be removed with a BBL Photofacial.
The device treats visible UV damage including sun spots, freckles, age spots and other skin discoloration issues (hyperpigmentation).
A BBL Photofacial is not a painful procedure. You will be lying comfortably in a treatment chair, and your face thoroughly cleansed. Your eyes will be protected with safety shield glasses. The handpiece of the device will be placed above your skin to process the area requiring correction.
The procedure will require about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. If you are sensitive to pain, a topical numbing cream can be applied before your treatment. The sensation is described as a warm and popping sensation against your skin.
After your BBL Photofacial, your skin will be reddened, looking and feeling like a mild sunburn. Your skin could swell for one to two days. The pigmented areas of your skin will darken and slough off within one to two weeks. If you were treated for spider veins, you might experience some bruising in the area.
