FAQs: Broadband Light (BBL) Photofacial in Chicago, IL

After washing your face, you will be instructed to lay back and relax while we apply a clear gel to your treatment areas, which helps your skin absorb the Broadband Light (BBL) energy. No anesthetic is needed for this treatment. We will then apply the Broadband Light (BBL) wand to your face or other treatment areas, slowly working to cover every inch for maximum effectiveness.
Broadband Light (BBL) Photofacial is a well-tolerated treatment. Many people compare Broadband Light (BBL) Photofacial to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against the skin. This sensation lasts only a second at a time as the light hits your skin. Once your treatment is over, your skin should feel normal again, though some may experience a slight sunburn sensation.
Your treated skin is especially vulnerable to the sun, so be sure to apply a physical sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day and avoid exposing your skin to the sun. Wash with a mild cleanser as needed, but avoid using harsh abrasives or exfoliating agents. Never pick or fuss — your skin knows how to heal and revitalize itself.
Some people may experience slight redness immediately following treatment, but this side effect subsides quickly. Side effects vary depending on the corrections you are seeking. If you are targeting brown spots or freckles, for example, your dark spots will darken and turn into a crust-like patina, which looks a bit like coffee grounds and sloughs off within the week. If you are correcting redness, your redness may intensify before gradually fading away in the week following your treatment. We will help you understand what to look for so you know exactly what to expect.
