Winter is the Time for BBL

BBL beauty for your winter skin

One of the first rules of getting a facial treatment is “Stay out of the sun.”

Well, we live in the Sunshine State. Avoiding the sun is mission impossible.

But during the shorter days of winter, many of us spend the majority of the daylight hours indoors. Since facial treatments can leave skin more vulnerable to sun damage, winter is the perfect time to address your skin concerns and fight back against the signs of aging.

Broadband light treatment, or BBL, is the newest, most effective way to create beautiful skin. BBL can treat a wide range of skin issues, including:

  • Acne scars  
  • Rosacea
  • Scars
  • Freckles
  • Sunspots
  • Age spots
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Sagging skin
  • Wrinkles and creases

BBL for Even Skin Tone

BBL is used in Photofacial therapy , which stimulates new cell growth and processes under the skin to produce even tone and a balanced complexion. The photofacial treatment can be used on the face, neck, tops of the hands, chest and shoulders as they are typically the most sun damaged.

Unlike more invasive facial resurfacing treatments, each Photofacial treatment is relatively painless and requires no recovery time or downtime. Sessions can be performed in the provider’s office in just minutes. The duration and repetition of treatment will vary depending on the skin’s condition and the desired results.

Patients will need a personal consultation and skin assessment to determine if they are a good candidate for successful Photofacial treatment.

SkinTyte: Tighter and smoother skin

Dry winter skin can really highlight wrinkles and fine lines on your face, neck and chest.

SkinTyt BBL light therapy firms skin and can remove wrinkles and fine lines over time, rebuilding skin from the inside out for smoother, younger-looking skin. It can be used to treat wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin with no recovery or downtime.

SkinTyte can improve:

  • Skin texture and smoothness
  • Skin firmness to remove wrinkles
  • The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around eyes, lips, and mouth
  • Sagging jowls, creating jawline definition
  • Wrinkles and sagging on the neck and décolleté

The SkinTyte treatment uses infrared light energy to penetrate to layers under the skin while the surface remains cool and comfortable. As those lower layers regenerate with new cells, you will see skin become firmer and smoother as the collagen foundation is gradually rebuilt and strengthened by the body for lasting results from the inside out.

The SkinTyte system’s precise controls also make safer, more effective and customizable for various skin types and issues.

SPF Every Day

Even though the winter days are cool, short and often overcast, you still need sunscreen of 30 SPF or higher, whether you are getting a facial treatment or not.

The cumulative effect of the few moments we spend outdoors, even just walking to a parked car, really add up over time. So repeat after us: SPF, every day.
