BBL™/ IPL

Healthy skin is youthful-looking skin, but even people who have a daily skincare regimen often can’t avoid certain cosmetic concerns associated with aging. Sun damage, brown spots, broken capillaries, or a red, flushed appearance are all issues that we can treat with BBL (broadband light) treatments in Houston, TX, at Ovation Med Spa.

Whether you notice these signs of aging on your face, your arms, your legs, or another area of your body, restoring evenly toned skin can make a dramatic difference. A BBL treatment can provide benefits similar to those of laser resurfacing and chemical peels—with less discomfort and a shorter recovery.*

Benefitting from BBL/IPL

BroadBand Light treatment delivers high-intensity light pulses (IPL) that target specific skin conditions. It can be particularly effective for reversing a lifetime of sun damage.

BBL/IPL uses an intense beam of broad-spectrum light that targets the lower layer of skin. This light removes damaged cells and stimulates collagen growth, helping improve the color, consistency, and texture of your skin.*

Ovation Med Spa offers this leading technology from Sciton® for treating many different skin conditions, including:

  • Pigmented lesions like freckles and age spots
  • Vascular lesions (cherry angiomas, telangiectasias, rosacea, and others)
  • Acne
  • Deeper lesions and darker types of skin

Even though BBL is not FDA-cleared for anti-aging or changing gene expression, a 2012 Stanford University study found that BBL/IPL treatment can “restore the gene expression pattern of photoaged and intrinsically aged human skin to resemble young skin.”

Because of the way BBL works, our specialists don’t recommend it for clients with darker skin. However, we can offer alternative treatments to help these clients with pigmentation issues.

Exploring BBL

Clients considering BBL treatments meet with one of our specialists for a preliminary consultation, which we schedule for an entire hour. Very few med spas spend this much time consulting with clients prior to treatments, but we feel it’s important to give you time to ask questions, learn about your options, and have confidence in our care. During your appointment, your treatment provider will:

  • Talk with you about what you want to accomplish.
  • Conduct a skin assessment to evaluate your needs.
  • Make recommendations and show you examples using a dermascope, which allows you to see skin conditions magnified several hundred times.

This approach lets us narrow down treatment options. If you are a good candidate for IPL, we can discuss how BBL/IPL works and the technology behind the procedure as well as any post-treatment instructions.

What You Can Expect with BBL/IPL

Most of our clients tolerate a photofacial very well and believe any minor discomfort they experience is an excellent trade-off for the benefits they get:

  • Treatments typically last no more than 20-30 minutes for the face; other areas of the body may take longer.
  • Treatment providers use a handheld medical device to target concerns precisely and effectively.
  • Clients usually report little or no pain during the procedure and compare the sensation to having a rubber band snapped lightly against their skin.

Generally, we recommend that you have 5-to-6 treatments every 3 to 4 weeks. Clients typically have treatments up to 4 times each year to maintain their results.

After Treatment with BBL/IPL

Our clients typically return to work or home after IPL and jump right into their normal routine. However, we recommend that you protect the treated area from the sun for at least a couple of weeks.

Side effects from a photofacial are very mild. You may notice that your skin is flushed, that tiny capillaries seem more prominent, or that brown spots appear darker. These changes usually fade within a few hours, though some clients need a few weeks to heal completely.

Beginning with your first treatment:

  • Your skin should take on an evener tone and smoother feel.
  • Sunspots should fade, and skin redness and dilated capillaries should decrease gradually.

Because a photofacial has almost no downtime and offers significant restorative benefits, it ranks highly among our treatments in terms of client satisfaction.
