- Sun-damaged skin

How does BBL work?
BBL works by gently delivering heat to the upper layers of your skin. The heat that has been absorbed by the skin on those targeted areas then stimulates your skin cells to produce new collagen.
The basis of this process is what helps to restore the skin back to its natural beauty as it uses the body’s natural healing response to improve the quality of the skin.
Also, the photothermal energy helps to eliminate those fine vessels that usually cause rosacea and redness, and helps to reduce unwanted melanin which stimulates hyperpigmentation.
Depending on the goal of the therapy, the particles of the pigment left behind will peel off within 14 days if the target is to get rid of brown spots. However, if the target is to get rid of skin redness, the blood vessel in the superficial layers of the skin that has been absorbed by the laser energy will cause them to close.
What happens after BBL treatment?
Following the treatment, you may experience some redness on the skin for the next few hours. Also, work done on targeted lesions will see some darkening of the targeted areas followed by a fading and flaking off later on.
However, the treated skin will begin to feel smoother and a visible reduction of fine lines and pores. Those sunspots and hyperpigmentation also start to gradually fade off.
