At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer BBL treatments to help patients rejuvenate the skin without invasive techniques or long recovery periods. This can be a great option for men and women looking to restore their skin in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra Beach, Orange Park, Lakeside and nearby areas in North Florida.
What is BBL?
BBL, or BroadBand Light therapy, is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to safely heat and rejuvenate the skin. As heat is absorbed by the skin, it triggers a regenerative response in the underlying skin cells. In the weeks following treatment, patients will experience improved skin tone and texture. Based on the gentle and effective nature of treatment, BBL is a great option for patients looking to address particular cosmetic concerns without invasive techniques or lengthy downtime.
How Much Does BBL Cost in Jacksonville, FL?
The cost of BBL treatment varies by patient, as we may recommend different approaches or multiple treatment sessions depending on your skin type and treatment goals. During your consultation, we’ll review your goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with all costs associated with your treatment. For your convenience, we accept all major credit cards and offer financing.
What are the Benefits of BBL?
BBL treatments provide numerous benefits and can be used to address a range of skin conditions. We may recommend BBL for:
- Age spots or sun spots
- Small facial veins or rosacea
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Non-invasive with minimal downtime
What is the BBL Treatment Like?
The BBL treatment is gentle and generally well-received by patients. However, we can apply a topical anesthetic at your request if you are concerned about discomfort during the treatment process. During treatment, we’ll give you protective eyewear and use a handheld device to deliver bursts of light energy to the skin. You will likely experience a warm sensation in the skin as the body absorbs the light energy. Again, while this is generally comfortable, some patients liken the sensation to that of a rubber band snapping against the skin. Most treatments are completed within one hour, with the duration of your treatment being dependent on the size of the treatment area.
What is the BBL Recovery Process Like?
After BBL treatments, you can expect to have some redness in the skin, which typically resolves within a few hours. Otherwise, there is virtually no downtime. Patients are able to return to work and resume most other activities immediately after their appointment. We may also advise you to adjust your skincare routine and wear sunscreen in the days following treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from BBL?
In the days following your BBL treatment, you may notice that some spots on the skin have actually darkened. This is a natural part of the treatment process, after which these spots should fade and flake off. Results should be visible within a week, and may improve for several weeks thereafter. However, keep in mind that you may require multiple treatment sessions for optimal results.
Are BBL Treatments Right for Me?
If you want to achieve clearer skin, particularly when it comes to rosacea and various forms of hyperpigmentation, BBL treatments can be a great option. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for these treatments is to schedule a consultation at Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery. We’ll assess your goals and help you determine if BBL treatments are the best option for you.
