What is FotoFacial BBL?
FotoFacial BBL is one of the latest facial rejuventation technologies today that offers an alternative to laser skin resurfacing, and sun damage and aging treatments.
How does FotoFacial BBL work?
The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. Additionally, the photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.
What FotoFacial BBL Treats:
- Age spots
- Spider veins
- Irregular pigmentation
- Sun Damage
- Rosacea, redness and flushing
- Uneven Skin Texture
FotoFacial BBL can be fine tuned for almost any skin type giving ideal results, enabling nearly anyone to benefit. Any area of your body can be treated, though most common are the face, chest and other areas exposed to damage from sunlight. Usually a series of 3 treatments is recommended.
What to Expect:
This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic. In most cases, you are able to apply makeup, return to work and resume most of your activities immediately.
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields. You may briefly feel a warm or “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Procedures take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed.
You may experience some redness that should resolve 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.
What aftercare do I need?
We may recommend skin care products, especially a good sunscreen, as you will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and should avoid direct sun exposure for a few days, until completely healed.
