“What is BBL? “BroadBand Light™therapy is a skin treatment that can reduce the appearance of damage and subtract years from your complexion. BBL, also known as Intense Pulsedlight therapy or the photo facial, uses cutting edge technology to produce younger-looking skin that's firmer and more even in tone and texture.”
I had been wanting to do something about the redness and sun damage on my cheeks and prominent veins around my nose. After lots of research I found an AMAZING Medical Esthetician. She has had extensive training and many years of experience. PLEASE do not go to just anyone for ANY laser treatment do your homework on their experience! Here in WA State you have to go for longer training in order to be able to use lasers and be a Medical Esthetician. So after I found my amazing provider and had a consultation I booked my BBL!
First she cleansed my skin thoroughly, applied a numbing cream, and applied the safety glasses! My gal even gave me a hand held distraction to squeeze when I had any pain. It was not too painful except around the veins on my nose, those hurt a shit ton! Afterwards I was really red and stayed red for about 24 hours but my skin is very reactive. Others experience less redness and less heal time. She gave me a cream that really helped my aftercare and healing.
I have now had 4, yes 4 treatments done! I was foolish and did not take before and after photos and I am so sad about that! BUT it worked you guys, it really works! My texture is 100 percent better, my redness is so much better and those super annoying veins on my nose are gone!
How many treatments you need is dependent on YOUR skin. It is expensive but when you see results it makes it ALL worth it!
What did I LOVE, the RESULTS that I could actually see and feel and have others compliment and notice!
What did I not LOVE so much was the cost but again worth it for me!
PLEASE be careful, I have heard horror stories when people take advantage of deals or don't do their research on their provider. You DO NOT want to go to just anyone and again do your research and have a consultation before ever letting someone laser your beautiful face. Most importantly don't go down the rabbit hole of looking online because the horror story photos are shockingly scary!
“BBL Results: If you have one or two BBL treatments, your results will last for a few months. Three treatments or more each year have shown to result in smoother, brighter and more even skin - giving the impression of reversing the aging process. Long-term benefits will last as long as you do multiple treatments a year.”
IF you are local, in WA or in Pierce County I HIGHLY and ONLY recommend Gig Harbor Aesthetics Serina does my BBL’s and Facials and Laura Jane does my Botox! Yes I get and love my Botox (just a little 😂) I will do a post on that too! GigHarborAesthetics.com Feel free to ask me ANYTHING about my experience and I will keep it real with you!
Stay fabulous! xo Shay xo
