BBL Forever Young & BBL HERO

Do you have freckles, sun spots, rosacea, or age spots that make your skin look less radiant or older? Broadband Light Therapy (BBL) intense-pulsed light treatments can resolve this issue and even help your skin age slower.

BBL Hero - BBL Forever Young

Proven in a Stanford University clinical study, aging skin can be rejuvenated to have younger gene expression resulting in younger-looking skin with Broad Band Light, BBL.

IPL Photofacial With BBL Hero

At AustinMD, we use the BBL Hero intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) device created by Sciton because it is the most powerful and versatile tool to get people the results they deserve. BBL Hero is four times faster at three times the peak power and delivers twice the cooling than the next-best IPL device on the market.

IPL photofacial treatment works by delivering bursts of light energy to the skin, providing skin rejuvenation and treating conditions that commonly occur due to sun exposure, broken blood vessels, or other cosmetic concerns. It’s a painless procedure that takes very little time to perform and can be a great way to help your skin look young for years to come with regular appointments.

How Does BBL Hero Work?

BBL stands for BroadBand Light, and BBL Hero delivers infrared and visible light that penetrates the outer layers of skin, stimulating changes at the DNA level and visible changes at the dermis. The BBL Hero has multiple interchangeable Smart Filters to adjust the specific wavelength of light that is being used to stimulate your skin cells. Each wavelength is absorbed by different structures of your skin, such as broken blood vessels, age spots, sun-damaged skin, or even acne. This versatility is part of why we use this device for IPL treatment in Austin.

Results of IPL Treatments

BBL laser treatments can be used to treat rosacea, acne, vascular lesions such as cherry angiomas, broken capillaries (telangiectasia), and hair removal. You can also notice improvements in skin firmness, elasticity, and pigmentation. With consistent light therapy treatments and adequate sun protection, your skin can look more clear, smooth, and more youthful.

Am I A Good Candidate for IPL Photofacial?

Nearly anyone with a condition with pigmented lesions, broken capillaries, sun damage, or other skin tone concerns can be a good candidate for IPL treatments. Due to the risk of adverse side effects, some dark skin tones may not be suitable for this procedure, but BBL Hero treats a wide range of skin colors, so we encourage anyone interested in this procedure to come in for a free consultation.

What’s great about the BBL Hero is that it can treat any area of the body, not just the face. In addition to laser hair removal, it’s also capable of helping to tighten loose skin in areas that commonly experience skin laxity with age, such as the knees and upper chest. Almost any generally healthy adult is a good candidate for this IPL procedure, so don’t hesitate to call or contact us online today.

BBL Treatment Process

Your specific IPL treatment will vary widely based on what concern you’re coming in for, but in general, you’ll arrive at our office and be seated in a comfortable position that gives our professionals the best angle for your specific problem area. Then we’ll pass the appropriate wavelength over the treatment area, bathing your skin in high-intensity light. That’s all there is to it.

Many patients see improvement in just one treatment, depending on their condition. Results will appear gradually over time, as quickly as one month and as long as 9 months after your last treatment.

What to Expect

This is a very tolerable 30-minute treatment similar to a photo facial. The procedure only becomes uncomfortable if we need to use more than two passes over the determined area. The first 2 passes are painless as they address overall texture of skin. The second 2 passes are targeting browns and reds, so you may feel a bit more discomfort similar to a snap of a rubber band and some heat.  

After treatment, your skin may be red, but you can apply makeup 3-4 hours after the treatment.    

Are you a Candidate?

Find out if this treatment is right for you by scheduling a skin consultation with Jeanine, our laser certified and highly experienced medical aesthetician. She’ll be able to answer all your questions and create a treatment plan for all your skin needs.

Botox began being used in cosmetic enhancement procedures just after the turn of the 21st century. Dysport is another equally efficacious and safe product, FDA approved 50 years ago. They are both widely used, trusted, and safe neuromodulator injectables used to temporarily stop muscle contractions that cause wrinkles on the face. That said, there are risks when using any type of facial injectable. For example, if a blood vessel in the skin is accidentally pierced, swelling and bruising can occur – although this tends to resolve over time. Patients with egg allergies should not use Botox as it is prepared in an albumin (egg) base, and patients who are allergic to Casein, found in cow’s milk, should not use Dysport.
In Your mid 30s: The most appropriate age to start Botox will depend on the skin color and the type of lifestyle (more versus less sun). In general, Caucasian women (who were not lifeguards) usually do best when they start Botox between 35 and 40.
The skin begins to lose volume and thins notably between the ages of 30 to 40. Botox can help prevent deep imprinted lines that we call wrinkles because of the effect of relaxing the muscles that can crease the skin. It can withstand the folding and creasing forces of the underlying muscle.

All injections will be administered by our talented, experienced and compassionate master injector nurse. She has a keen aesthetic eye and enjoys boosting self-image and confidence in our patients. At AustinMD, our approach to all of our medical aesthetics treatments is to address your concerns and deliver the best, most natural-looking results.

There are 2 types of dermal fillers most commonly used: Hyaluronic Acid (HA), and non-HA. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in many areas of the body including joints and skin, that can hold 1000x its weight in water. HA fillers help maintain shape, even out depressions in the skin, and provide hydration. They have improved lifting capacity (small amounts are required), improved longevity, and no need for allergy testing. They are also reversible by Hyaluronidase, and are naturally degraded by the body over time.
Aesthetic procedures are not covered under insurance, therefore we do not accept insurance. However, we do offer CareCredit, which is a a great financing option for health and wellness purchases not covered by insurance. With short term financing options of 6, 12, 18 or 24 months, no interest is charged on purchases when you make the minimum monthly payments and pay the full amount due by the end of the promotional period.

The AustinMD skin care is a medical-grade product line, which means that we use the appropriate dose of highly stabilized ingredients that last longer, and take longer to degrade. The cosmetic industry is highly unregulated, so we have no idea if what the label says is truly what’s inside the jar of serum or lotion. Medical companies have invested in clinical research and can prove that their products offer results. We stand behind the products we offer as it reflects on us.

Each appointment starts with a very thorough consultation evaluating your medical history, and muscle movement. At AustinMD, we always take into consideration our patient’s wishes and preferences regarding how much facial movement is desired as well as correction of asymmetries, when possible. Everyone will notice, but no one will know. Schedule your appointment today, you will be glad you did!

To determine a client’s treatment, Dr. Roy and his staff will review your entire medical history. You may want to request copies of your medical files to share with him.

Your medical files and treatments are held in the strictest of confidence; all correspondence is handled through our secure patient portal.
