What is BroadBand Light Therapy (bbl)?
Broadband light (BBL) therapy utilizes energy-releasing technology to enhance the aesthetics of your skin and also makes it look more youthful and smoother. It works by employing therapeutic-grade light energy that mildly warms the skin and stimulates collagen production. Individuals with an array of skin issues may benefit from BBL because it can help with rosacea, broken blood vessels, sun damage, or unwanted freckles. Also, it creates a more even skin texture and helps generate a fresh, luminous complexion. To help you with your aesthetic goals, we can combine BBL treatments with other aesthetic procedures. At DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Boston, MA, our doctors proudly offer BBL as an innovative treatment because it helps restore our patients' confidence in their skin.

BroadBand Light™ Therapy Reviews
"As a mom of 3 little kids, my face was starting to look tired and I was noticing wrinkles starting to appear. After a consultation with Nicole, I decided the IPL laser was the best choice for me. I could not be happier with my results! My face looks years younger and my skin tone is much more even. Nicole and Steven were both extremely knowledgeable and realistic, which I appreciated. Will absolutely be recommending this office to all of my friends!"- D.H. / Google / Jan 19, 2021
"Derosa Clinic is a state-of-the-art skin care and facial aesthetics center. I recently had the most incredible facial with Steven. During my appointment he took the time to listen to my concerns and responded with a treatment plan including skin care products and IPL, (Intense Light Therapy) sessions. Steven is very experienced, gentle and his knowledge of treatments and products is endless. Beyond that, he is very kind and takes an interest in the person as well as the skin. You truly feel like you are the only person in the world while he's treating you. My skin is brighter, smoother and softer and I plan on a long relationship with Steven and Derosa Clinic. I would highly recommend them for any and all skincare needs."- L.Z. / Google / Jun 04, 2022

will bbl therapy work for me?
An ideal candidate for BBL is any individual dealing with hyperpigmentation or unevenly textured skin. Patients may experience these issues because of acne, sun damage, damaged capillaries, or rosacea. BBL also helps make the skin appear more youthful by stimulating the production of collagen. We can change the settings used during the BBL treatment, which allows us to treat a variety of skin issues. Before undergoing treatment, we will explain how BBL technology can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
how is a bbl treatment performed?
After creating the perfect treatment plan, we adjust the settings of the BBL system to fit your unique needs. Before beginning the therapy, we will cover your eyes to protect them from the light of the laser. Next, we will lightly pass the laser over your skin while concentrating on the treatment areas. The duration of the procedure depends on the severity of your skin issues and if we completed additional treatments during the session. Typically, we can complete BBL procedures in about one hour or less.
when will i see results from bbl therapy?
Following the treatment, a soothing lotion is applied to your skin. We will also give you post-treatment care instructions, and we recommend reducing your exposure to the sun. Otherwise, patients can generally return to their normal daily routine. Following the initial treatment and within 2 – 6 weeks, patients can see results from BBL. Generally, patients will see optimal results after multiple BBL treatments. To achieve your desired outcome, we will help you determine how many sessions you need.
