BBL Broadband Light Therapy is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active lifestyles, and sun damage. BBL energy allows our providers to precisely treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results.
BBL Forever Young™ Rejuvenation
The energy light delivered by the BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your cells to regenerate new collagen. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty by addressing the following conditions:
- Pigment Lesions (freckles, age spots)
- Vascular Lesions (small blood vessels, varicose veins)
- Skin Firmness
- Uneven Skin Texture
What areas can be treated? - Any area of the body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck , back of the hands, chest and shoulders.
How many treatments will I need? - The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and your provider will personalize a treatment plan based on your needs and desired results. Your provider may also combine other procedures to further personalize your treatment.
What will happen during the procedure? - Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a warm or stinging "rubber band snap" sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area being treated and the type of procedure being performed.
Will is be uncomfortable? - The process is gentle, non-invasive, and safe. You will be offered a topical anesthetic, however, it may not be needed for some treatments.
What should I expect after the treatment? - You may experience some redness that should resolve itself within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine lines and pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results will depend on your condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated.
How long will it take to recover? - There is virtually no downtime! This is a non-invasive, gentle procedure. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of your activities immediately.
BBL Forever Bare™ Hair Reduction
Hair reduction that's fast, easy, and effective with minimal discomfort! BBL uses a broad spectrum of light to heat the hair follicles to therapeutic temperatures for safe and effective hair removal. With treatments as fast as five minutes and results in as little as four to six treatments, hair reduction has never been easier! BBL hair removal is fast and comfortable. During the treatment, your skin will be protected with a cold sapphire crystal so that only your hair follicles are heated, and not your skin.
What areas can be treated? - Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are the lower half of the face, under arms, arms, legs, bikini area, chest, shoulders and back.
What does it feel like? - Treatments are gentle, non-invasive and safe. A cooling system soothes the skin, so the treatment is delivered with minimal or no discomfort. Personal sensitivity varies from patient to patient, so some patients may prefer a topical anesthetic.
How many treatments will I need? - We recommend most areas be treated 4-6 times in 5-8 week intervals to achieve optimal benefit. Long-term results depend on multiple factors such as hair thickness, the area treated and the hair's growth cycle. Hair grows in three stages: anagen, catagen and telogen. Hair reduction technologies can only treat hairs in the anagen phase. Since not all hairs are in the same growth stage at the same time, multiple treatments are necessary to target all hairs in the treatment site.
What happens during the treatment? - Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. A clear gel will be applied to the skin. The light energy is then delivered with a cooled applicator. During the treatment, some patients experience a warm or stinging sensation in the treatment area.
How long will the treatment take? - Treatment time will vary depending on the size of the area treated and your hair and skin type. Typically the upper lip only takes about 60 seconds while a larger area such as your back can take up to an hour.
How long will it take to recover? - BBL Hair Reduction is a non-invasive, gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you can resume your normal daily activities immediately.
What happens after the first treatment? - Immediately following your treatment, you may experience some redness that should go away within a few hours. A few days to a week after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your BBL Treatment and are not growing.
What aftercare will I need? - Minimal aftercare is needed. Keep the treated area clean, use a sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 when outdoors and follow your individual instructions given to you by your provider.

Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser
Radiant skin with minimal downtime! - Over time your skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure and your body's natural aging process. As a result, your body may develop sun spots, fine lines, and lose that natural healthy glow. Halo eliminates years of damage by combining deep dermal rejuvenation with epidermal renewal, precisely targeting the right depth of the skin and restoring the luminous glow you had when you were younger.
What results can I expect? - Halo is a complete skin rejuvenation treatment. You will see improvements in overall tone and texture in addition to significant removal of discoloration, reduction in fine lines, reduced pore size, skin reflectivity and glow.
How many treatments do I need? - What's great about Halo is that you can choose how many treatments you want! Discuss with your provider your needs and you can choose to have one or two more aggressive treatments or have multiple treatments that are less aggressive and achieve a similar goal over a longer period of time.
What does Halo feel like? - With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most patients experience very little discomfort. Most patients describe the treatments as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensation, but are generally comfortable. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 15 to 30 minutes, or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels.
How soon after my treatment can I return to normal activities? - For the first 24 hours you should keep your skin protected, but after that you should be able to go about your normal activities. After the first 24 hours your skin will begin to peel, but you will be able to put on makeup. For facial treatments, you will see very little change on the first day. After two to three days you will develop a light bronzing appearance. By day three to four your skin will begin to peel, revealing your new skin beneath.
When will I see results? - You will see initial results between two and five days after your Halo Treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest pigmentary improvement in the first two to three weeks. This is followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to improve for months!
How long will my results last? - Your Halo results will last for years to come, but you should continue to keep your skin protected at all times using UV sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional Halo Treatment you get will only improve the results, slowing down the aging process and giving you even better looking skin.
