What A BBL Photofacial Can Do For You

Posted on November 7, 2016

Throughout our lives, our skin is exposed to the sun and other environmental factors that can take a toll on our complexions. You may especially see skin irregularities if you do not regularly wear sunscreen or use harsh cleansers. At CDAM, we offer a cutting-edge treatment to reduce the appearance of skin damage: the BBL Photofacial.

BBL Photofacial

The Treatment

The BBL or BroadBand Light treatment is a done to correct an array of skin conditions, including sun spots, hyperpigmentation, freckles, acne, broken capillaries, and more. Using light energy, the upper layers of your skin are gently heated. This stimulates the production of collagen, which can help to restore the skin to its original beauty. The photothermal energy can also treat blood vessels that cause redness in the skin.

Following treatment, age spots and freckles may appear slightly darker before flaking off. This is normal, and will ultimately reveal a more youthful, clearer appearance.


This treatment offers many benefits, which include:

  • Customizable-This treatment can be customized to serve each individual’s unique skin needs.
  • Quick and Comfortable- The BBL photofacial is quick, and can be done in-office in 15-30 minutes. Patients usually tolerate treatments well, only describing a warming sensation. Downtime for this procedure is minimal.
  • Rapid Results- Results appear quickly- just a few days following treatment. Deeper irregularities, like blood vessels and age spots, will begin to clear up in just two weeks.
  • Maintenance– Regular treatments with BBL photofacial will help stimulate collagen production and maintain the skin’s youthful appearance.

A consultation with Dr. Kalimullah or Dr. Cavanaugh is needed to discuss this procedure and whether it is a good choice for you. If you are interested in BBL photofacial treatments for younger, more even skin, contact CDAM in Chicago today to schedule a consultation.
