What is a photofacial?
A photofacial, or Intense Pulsed Light therapy, is a procedure that uses light to treat hyperpigmentation and redness.* At Pellé Medical Spa in Manchester, New Hampshire, we use BBL™ to provide photofacials. BBL™ enables treatment of multiple skin conditions with various wavelengths seamlessly using change-on-the-fly Smart Filters. BBL™ BroadBand Light therapy uses cutting-edge technology to produce younger looking skin that’s firmer, and more even in tone and texture.* With little recovery time and no surgery, BBL™ offers a safe, FDA-cleared option for sun damage, anti-aging and skin rejuvenation.*
How does BBL work?
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.* This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty creating a younger looking you.* In addition, it will eliminate the vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.*
BBL™ uses advanced dual-lamp technology with each lamp supplying half of the energy needed during treatment. This results in unsurpassed lamp lifetimes. Its broad range of wavelengths allows targeted treatment for many skin conditions without the need for additional hand pieces. Its flexible Finesse Adapters enable treatment of hard to reach areas, producing evenly treated skin. With its user-friendly features, superior results, and exceptional ROI, BBL™ is the most complete and versatile broadband light system in its class.
What are the commonly treated conditions?
- Pigmented lesions (e.g., freckles, age spots)*
- Vascular lesions (e.g., small blood vessels)*
