The IPL™ and BBL™ Difference
The difference between IPL™ and BBL™ is that BBL spans a wider visible spectrum of light. You will use the light that works best on the area you want to be treated. Both laser technologies can be used to treat acne, pigmentation problems, redness, aging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. The treatment typically called a photo facial or photo rejuvenation has been in use for more than a decade with over two million successful treatments. Photofacials can treat:
  • Sun Damage
  • Skin Laxity
  • Fine Lines
  • Spider Veins
  • Acne
  • Facial Redness
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Livers Spots and Freckles
  • Cherry Angiomas
  • Fine Vein Clusters
  • Vascular Lesions
  • Rosacea
After your IPL session, you may notice redness or pinpoint bruising at the treatment site for a few days. Dark spots may also get darker, but they will peel off within three to four days. You can wear makeup immediately after IPL treatment if you choose. After a week, your skin will be less sensitive, though daily sunscreen application is recommended. In many cases, you may need a series of three to six sessions to see the best results. After your treatment is complete, you’ll notice brighter, younger-looking skin with a more even complexion. We recommend touch-up visits every year to maintain your results.
