You will be asked to wear sunscreen for several weeks after the treatment in order to protect your skin as it heals. The skin may appear flushed for a few days after BBL and certain dark spots may become darker. This can be covered with makeup and will resolve within about 10 to 14 days. Within a few weeks, your skin will look brighter, clearer, and more youthful. Your skin can be further improved with subsequent BBL sessions, usually between 3 and 5.
Even after your first treatment, your skin can feel smoother and will have more even tone. Improvement is gradual and will continue to be more visible after each treatment. Many individuals experience dramatic results only after 1-2 treatments. Some patients will benefit from additional maintenance treatments.
Rosacea: The treatment reduces the overall redness, flushing and tiny blood vessels, associated with the condition and often improves acne breakouts which are common.
Sun damage to the face (photo-aging): The treatment reduces freckling and irregular pigmentation and creates a more smooth appearance to the skin and even some reduction in pore appearance.
Sun damage to the chest and back (photo-aging): Treatment reduces the freckling and irregular pigmentation to the chest and/or back and improves the overall appearance of the skin. It also reduces the redness on the chest associated with excessive sun exposure.
Sun damage to the hands and arms (photo-aging, also called “liver spots”): The treatment reduces the freckling and irregular pigmentation to the hands and even the arms, with improvement in the thin-skin appearance of sun damaged hands.
