Now is the Time: Why is BBL™ Better in the Winter Months? 

Did holiday celebrations take a toll on your face? Have the office space heaters become full-blast skin dryers? Lack of sun got you looking ho-hum? Good news! Winter is the ideal time to perk up a tired complexion with BroadBand Light Therapy™ (BBL™)!  

BBL™ treatments treat a wide range of skin issues, including: 

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

So Really, Why is BBL™ Better in the Winter Months? 

Since BBL™ facial treatments can leave skin more vulnerable to sun damage, a few weeks indoors waiting out our winter weather is just what you need to tackle some skin concerns and turn back the clock on aging. Plus, let’s face it, winter can do a number on your skin leaving it dry, patchy and pale, highlighting areas of discoloration. It’s an excellent time for an instant boost! 

How does BBL™ work? 

BBL™ is the technology behind Photofacial therapy  and treatments that can tighten and smooth skin. BBL™ light and heat energy penetrate the top layers of your skin and target cells with darker pigment. When these cells absorb the heat, they are destroyed and absorbed, dissipating dark patches and creating even skin tone. BBL™ can also treat redness by zapping small, broken blood vessels that frequently occur on the cheeks and nose. The targeted heat of BBL™ also stimulates the production of new collagen in the skin’s deeper layers, plumping the skin and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles at the surface.  

How can I get More Even Skin Tone? 

BBL™ destroys uneven pigment below the surface for long-lasting results. A burst of new cell growth under the skin comes to the surface for more even tone and a balanced complexion. Not just for faces, BBL™ can even tone on any skin that may have dark patches caused by sun exposure, including chest, hands, neck and shoulders.

Unlike more intense facial treatments, such as chemical peels, which work from the surface down, most people find BBL™ treatment to be relatively painless, and they immediately return to their regular daily routines with no downtime. You may need more than one treatment depending on your skin’s condition and your goals. A personal consultation and skin assessment can determine if you are a good candidate for effective BBL™ treatment. 

How does BBL™ Reduce Signs of Aging? 

Dry, flakey, patchy winter skin highlights wrinkles and fine lines making it look as though you have aged years in the months since you last saw the summer sun. SkinTyte therapy is another form of BBL™ treatment that firms skin and removes wrinkles and fine lines over time. By targeting the deeper layers, SkinTyte rebuilds skin from the inside out. As the new collagen is formed, it smooths skin at the surface for a firmer, fresher complexion. And there is no downtime! Treatment takes just a few minutes in the doctor’s office and then you’re ready to show your ever-younger face to the world. SkinTyte BBL™ treatment can improve skin’s texture, smoothness, firmness, sagging and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The SkinTyte system’s customizable controls make it safer and more effective for various skin types and issues.

How do I Care for My Skin After Winter BBL? 

Even if you think you aren’t outside that much or you try to avoid the sun, the few seconds we spend outdoors every day, such as walking to and from our cars, can have a cumulative and damaging effect on skin – especially skin that has been treated with BBL™ or other treatments that lead to photosensitivity. Everyone should wear a sunscreen of 30 SPF or higher on exposed skin daily, including face, neck, chest, hands and forearms. Sun damage is more serious than just unsightly, uneven skin tone; it can lead to skin cancer.
