How Long Can Broadband Light™ Therapy (BBL) Results Last?

By: Annie Nguyen


If you're considering Broadband Light (BBL) therapy to enhance your skin's health and appearance, one of your first questions may be how long you’ll be able to enjoy your newly improved complexion. At My Aesthetics Intelligence in Dallas, TX, double board-certified nurse practitioner Annie Nguyen shares in the desire for long-lasting results and is committed to offering the most effective and enduring treatments and procedures available today. Let's explore the longevity of BBL skin treatment results and how they can benefit you.

What is BBL for the skin?

Broadband Light therapy, commonly referred to as BBL — not to be confused with the Brazilian butt lift (BBL) body contouring procedure — is a noninvasive skin rejuvenation treatment that uses advanced technology to address various skin concerns. It utilizes targeted light energy to penetrate the skin's surface, stimulating collagen production and promoting the body's natural healing processes. This results in a more youthful, vibrant complexion with minimal downtime.

What skin problems can be treated with BBL therapy?

BBL therapy is a versatile treatment capable of addressing a wide range of skin concerns, including:

  • Sun spots
  • Age spots
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Redness and rosacea
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Unwanted freckles
  • Broken blood vessels

How long do BBL skin treatment results last?

The longevity of BBL treatment results can vary from person to person, as it will heavily depend on individual factors such as the patient's unique skin type, the specific concerns being treated, and their lifestyle habits. Generally, BBL results can last anywhere from several months to a few years in some cases, particularly when paired with complementary skin treatments and a dedicated at-home skin care routine. Patients often experience noticeable improvements in skin texture and tone just days or weeks after treatment, with continued enhancements as collagen production increases over time.

To extend the longevity of your BBL results, it's essential to follow a proper skin care regimen, which may include the use of sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Additionally, maintenance BBL sessions may be recommended to sustain and maximize the benefits of the treatment.

How many Broadband Light treatments will I need?

The number of BBL treatments required will vary based on your skin's condition and the specific concerns you’re hoping to address. While some results may be noticeable after a single treatment, most patients require a series of sessions spaced about 3 – 4 weeks apart to achieve their desired outcome. During your initial consultation with Annie, a personalized treatment plan will be created to best meet your unique needs and goals.

Is Broadband Light therapy safe for dark skin?

Yes, BBL therapy is generally safe for individuals with dark skin tones. The versatility of BBL technology allows for customized settings to target specific skin concerns while minimizing the risk of hyperpigmentation or other side effects. Patients with tanned or darker skin may have increased sensitivity during and after treatment, but Annie and our knowledgeable team will provide detailed aftercare instructions to minimize the risk of side effects, discomfort, and other unwanted symptoms.
