BBL™ Broad Band Light Photo Facial in Vancouver BC

We have a team of skin specialists, working under the direction of facial plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Buonassisi, that are highly experienced in medical aesthetics such as Broad Band Light therapy treatments. Some patients will see tremendous results after just one treatment, but some may be required to undergo a series of treatments for optimal results. We will take the time to do a thorough consultation and discuss your overall skin goals to customize a treatment plan that is specific to you, taking into consideration your needs and budget.

What is BBL™ Broad Band Light Laser Treatment?

BBL™ (Broad Band Light) Photo Facial also known as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, uses advanced scientific technology to produce a clearer-looking skin that’s firmer, and more even in tone and texture. The light energy delivered by the BBL™ will gently heat the upper layers of your epidermis. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate new collagen production, making the skin firmer and more supple. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending your skins own natural pigment and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces brown pigmented spots for an even, clear complexion.

The state-of-the-art machine that is used to perform BBL™ treatments is equipped with an advanced cooling feature, allowing the use of high-powered energy with little to no discomfort. A topical anesthetic is available and can be applied prior to your treatment for those individuals who request it, but typically it is not necessary.

Who can benefit from BBL™ (Broad Band Light) Photo Facial Laser Treatments?

Most anyone can benefit from having one or more BBL Photo Facial laser treatments, but the most common conditions that are effectively treated are;

  • Pigmented Lesions (e.g., hyperpigmentation, freckles, age spots)
  • Vascular Lesions (e.g., small blood vessels, cherry angiomas, rosacea)
  • Skin Lacking Firmness
  • Uneven Skin Texture

Any area of your body can be treated with BBL™ Laser Therapy. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders due to those being the most frequently exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight.

It has been said that you can never make a second “first-impression”. Your face is often what people first notice about you, and it may not always be leaving the lasting impression you want it to. Years of UV exposure, harsh skin products and the natural aging process, can do a number on your skin, making it look dull and aged. Luckily, there’s a skin treatment that can reduce the appearance of damage and subtract years from your complexion – introducing the miraculous BBL™ PhotoFacial.
