What is Photorejuvenation or Photofacial?
Photorejuvenation is a laser skin treatment that is used to improve
sun-damaged and ruddy skin. This is an easy, no down time treatment that
you can do to treat existing sun damage as well as prevent future wrinkles.
What types of skin conditions can be treated with BBL Photorejuvenation
laser skin treatments?
There are many unwanted skin conditions which can be successfully treated
with Photorejuvenation laser skin treatments, such as:
- Brown spots | Sun Damage | Age Spots | Liver Spots
- Hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone
- Skin tightening
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Redness from sun damage
How does the BBL Photorejuvenation laser skin treatments work?
Photorejuvenation works by exposing damaged skin to a form of carefully
controlled, intense pulsed-light. This lights stimulates collagen and
elastin fibers, which result in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles,
brown spots and freckles. You will see a smoother skin texture, and a more
even skin tone to following your skin treatments.
Does BBL Photorejuvenation treatments hurt?
Patients report that the treatment feels like a series of rubber-band snaps
all over the treated areas. Although the treatment does not hurt, the
feeling can be startling.
What areas can be treated?
The beautiful thing about BBL Photorejuvenation treatments is that almost
any body area is fair game for these treatments. Obviously the face is the
most popular area, but any other body part can also be treated; including
the chest, hands, shoulders, etc.

* Please note that individual results may vary.
How many BBL Photorejuvenation laser skin treatments will I need?
Your skin type, color, and condition will determine how many skin
treatments you will need. You will notice a significant amount of clearance
after just one treatment, however subsequent treatments may be needed to
remove older, deeper sun damage. Best results are achieved between 3-5
treatments once a month and then one treatment every 6-12 months to
maintain and prevent wrinkles.
How long are the treatments?
BBL Photorejuvenation treatments are relatively quick, and the size of the
area being treated will dictate how long the session will take. (For a
basis point, a full-face treatment takes about 15 to 30 minutes.)
What will I look like immediately after?
There is no “down-time” with BBL treatments, and right after treatment you
can go back to your every-day life. Immediately after treatment, your face
may feel warm and look a little pink, however these things will pass within
an hour or two. Treated sun-spots will start to darken right away, and
within the course of the following few days they will begin to slough
themselves off to reveal clear, pristine skin underneath.
How long will my results last?
The results from BBL Photorejuvenation are permanent, the discolored areas
that have been removed are gone forever.
However, these treatments can only treat *existing* sun damage and broken
capillaries, and cannot do anything to prevent future sun damage / redness
To maintain the skin and to prevent new wrinkles, it is suggest that
patients do this treatment every 6-12 months after the initial treatment
