What areas does BBL treat?

How Does BBL Treatment Work?
Broadband Light Therapy, also known as Photofacial or Intense Pulsed Light, works by utilizing high-intensity light pulses to target specific skin pigment cells. It offers a safe, FDA-approved option for anti-aging, sun damage and skin rejuvenation. Using the right frequency for a particular pigment, say a blemish, BBL can deliver light energy, causing them to disintegrate. Through this, the skin beneath starts to heal naturally, replacing blemish pigment cells with new, healthy ones. This procedure happens in a natural, non-invasive, painless process.
You have to apply topical anesthetic cream on the area to be treated one hour prior to the procedure.
During the procedure, your eyes will be protected with a glass or a safety shield. Initially, one or two pulses are done at average energies to know the patient’s tolerance. You may feel a hot elastic band snap sensation as the light is pulsed over the targeted areas.
The procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
After the treatment, redness, warmth and a mild burning sensation will be felt. This generally lasts 2 to 4 hours after the procedure.

I got the Laser Hair Removal treatment from LaserBody M.D. a few months ago and I am loving that I get to save so much time from not having to regularly shave my legs and armpits anymore. I’m happy with the service they’ve provided and would definitely recommend them to friends and family.Janita Nichols, 40, Scarborough, ON
My chest hair made me sweat easily even when I was just wearing light clothes. I was also hesitant to walk around topless knowing I’d get made fun off for my thick body hair. Thanks to LaserBody M.D.’s Laser Hair Removal treatment, I was able to get rid of it and enjoy myself more. I now feel lighter, cleaner, and less conscious about my body.Paul P., 24, Brampton, ON
My family lineage has caused me to have thick, coarse hair on my chest, arms, and legs. If there’s such a thing as too much body hair, it’s me. I finally had it lessened a month ago at LaserBody M.D. through their Laser Hair Removal treatment. The technician who performed the treatment was able to take a lot in just a few sessions. I plan to visit the clinic for a few more sessions to have the remaining hair permanently removed.Rod R. Carver, 33, Hamilton, ON
