If you’re considering laser resurfacing to enhance your complexion, you might feel overwhelmed by how many options there are. One of these options is BroadBand Light therapy or BBL. Thanks to its impressive results with little downtime, a BBL laser treatment might be just what you’re looking for.

What is BroadBand Light Therapy?

BroadBand Light therapy is a powerful treatment that uses multiple wavelengths of light energy to improve your skin’s health and appearance. BBL devices use an advanced version of intense pulsed light (IPL) technology, one of the most popular laser treatments available. There are a variety of BBL laser devices that can treat a range of skin conditions.

What Do BroadBand Light (BBL) Lasers Do for Your Skin?

The broad spectrum wavelengths of a BBL laser target your skin’s deeper layers. When your skin absorbs this light energy, it triggers increased collagen production to revive your skin and boost elasticity. The light also destroys pigmented cells, making BBL an effective treatment for hyperpigmentation. At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we offer the Forever Young BBL™ laser and the BBL HERO™ laser.

Forever Young BBL™

As the name suggests, Forever Young BBL™ is a powerful anti-aging and skin rejuvenation treatment. By causing microdamage that stimulates collagen production, this laser treatment clears away dead and damaged cells to reveal healthy new skin that’s firmer and healthier.


Like Forever Young BBL™, this laser boosts your skin’s health and elasticity by increasing collagen. BBL HERO™ is particularly effective for treating sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Pigment in your skin breaks down when it absorbs the intense pulsed light energy, leaving behind a smoother, clearer complexion.

Is There Downtime After BBL Laser Treatments?

One of the benefits of BBL laser treatments is that they’re gentle and non-invasive, requiring very little to no downtime. You’ll be able to return to your regular routine immediately, though your skin may be a little red for a few hours.

What Results Can I Expect with BBL Laser Resurfacing?

Whether you choose Forever Young BBL™ or BBL HERO™ treatments at Capital Laser, you’ll enjoy fast and long-lasting benefits. Results develop within a few days to a couple of weeks. 

Typically, BroadBand Light therapy treatments offer the following results:

  • Reduced hyperpigmentation and sun damage
  • A clearer, more radiant complexion
  • Diminished fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improvements to acne scarring, facial redness, rosacea, and spider veins

Depending on your skin condition and goals, we may recommend a series of treatments. You can expect your BBL laser results to last up to one year, and you can preserve your rejuvenated appearance with occasional maintenance treatments.

Am I a Good Candidate for BroadBand Light Treatments?

BroadBand Light therapy is a versatile treatment that can benefit a variety of skin concerns. Because the laser energy targets hyperpigmentation, this treatment is typically best for light skin tones. One of our board-certified dermatologists, Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, Dr. Geeta Shah, or Dr. Tania Peters, will assess your skin and help you find the best treatment option during your consultation.

Capital laser and skin care is the best dermatology practice I’ve ever been to. I’ve seen both Dr. Peters and Dr. Tanzi, who are both extremely intelligent, caring, highly skilled, practical – and gorgeous! The staff is excellent – very caring, skilled, excellent training, professional, and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Capital Laser to anyone seeking to take fabulous care of their skin. You will be in the best hands here.
