BBL™ Treatment - Tupelo, MS Specialist – Dr. Alan Pritchard

What is BBL BroadBand Light™?

BBL™ is an innovative technology that sets new standards for the treatment of skin conditions associated with aging, active life styles, and sun damage. BBL™ energy allows Dr. Pritchard 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.

How does BBL™ work?

The light energy delivered by the BBL™ will gently heat the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, more vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and will reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.

What conditions can be treated with BBL™?

• Pigmented lesions (freckles and age spots)

• Vascular lesions (small blood vessels)

• Acne

• Skin Firmness

• Uneven Skin Texture

• Unwanted Hair

What areas can be treated?

Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of the sunlight such as the face, neck, back of the hand, chest, and shoulders. The actual number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient. Dr. Pritchard may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

Will it be uncomfortable?

The procedure is gentle, noninvasive, and safe with virtually no downtime. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic; however, Dr. Pritchard may choose to use a topical anesthetic on more sensitive areas.

What should I expect after the treatment?

You may experience some redness, but this should resolve within a few hours following your treatment. For some pigmented lesions, you will see darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine line and pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your skin's condition, the number of treatments required, and the specific area treated. Dr. Pritchard will provide you with complete information about your post treatment care and results.
