Phototherapy I BBL – BroadBand Light
Treatment of sun damage, age spots, acne and redness

What is BBL Broadband Light?

BBL is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles, and sun damage. BBL energy allows Dr. Berkowitz 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. Any area of your 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.

The following conditions can be treated with BBL:

  • Pigmented Lesions (e.g., freckles, age spots)
  • Vascular Lesions (e.g., small blood vessels)
  • Acne
  • Skin Firmness
  • Uneven Skin Texture
  • Unwanted Hair

How it works

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 foundation, leading to increased skin firmness. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.
