Frequently Asked Questions:
- BroadBand Light gently heats the top layers of the skin, targeting areas of extra pigmentation to stimulate skin cell regeneration and collagen production. The photothermal energy reduces unwanted melanin and eliminates fine vessels that cause redness. BBL treatments are easily customizable because it operates on a large range of wavelength. At your initial consultation, your provider will determine which option would be best for your skin concerns.
- We will apply a cold gel to the area(s) before BBL treatment. You will need to wear protective eyewear and you will feel a slight warming sensation at the very least. Most clients will experience little to no pain.
- You will need to consult with your Vive Provider, but best results often require a series of BBL treatments. Each treatment is customized based on your skin type, concerns, and issues.
- BBL treatment requires little to no downtime. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately & makeup can be applied right after treatment. Your skin may be a little sensitive and pink post-treatment (this shouldn’t last for more than a day or two) and is easily covered up. You may experience darkening of the targeted areas of your skin after your appointment, this is temporary as these spots will fade or flake off in the next week or two. Expect to see smoother, even-toned skin and reduced visible signs of sun damage and aging. Be sure to avoid direct sun exposure and wear SPF daily on all treated areas!
