Frequently Asked Questions
While you relax, we will apply a clear gel to your skin, which aids in the absorption of the light from the BBL device. The hand-held device is then gently applied to your target areas.
Some patients compare the feeling of a BBL photofacial to a rubber band snapping against the skin. This feeling is intermittent, lasting only as long as the light hits your skin. BBL photofacials are well tolerated and usually require no topical numbing cream.
Most BBL photofacial treatments last about 30 minutes, so they can easily fit into your busy schedule. The exact times will vary depending on the type of photofacial you are having and the areas you wish to have treated.
You should be able to return to your regular routine immediately following treatment, including reapplying makeup, if desired. You may experience some temporary redness, but this common side effect will subside quickly on its own in the hours after treatment.
