BBL™-BroadBand Light

BBL™-BroadBand Light is a type of IPL technology that utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent results in photorejuvenation therapy. BBL™ can be used to treat sun and age spots as well as vascular issues and the redness associated with rosacea. The light energy delivered by the BBL™ gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat from the BBL™ is absorbed by the target areas and stimulate the skin cells. This will result in restoration of your skin to its natural beauty, making it smoother and more vibrant. The most common areas treated are the face, neck, hands, chest and shoulders as these are the areas most likely to suffer damaging effects of the sun.

There is little to no downtime associated with BBL™ treatments. Generally, there is some residual redness which resolves in a matter of hours. Treatments can be spaced approximately three weeks apart. The number of recommended treatments is dependent on your particular condition and the response of your skin. BBL™ is priced either as a single treatment or can be purchased as a package for multiple treatments at a significant savings.

MicroLaserPeel™ (MLP)

MicroLaserPeel™ is an intra-epidermal laser peel that precisely removes the outermost layers of the skin. The procedure is individually tailored to the nature of the condition of your skin. MicroLaserPeel™ uses Erbium:YAG laser technology to treat multiple skin problems including scars, wrinkles, age spots, sun damaged skin and pigmentary problems. The depth of treatment can be accurately controlled based on skin type, treatment problem and your particular goals. Compared to traditional laser skin resurfacing, MicroLaserPeel™ offers a modality to treat your skin with considerably less down time.

MicroLaserPeel™ improves the skin texture, tone and color, providing more vibrant, healthier skin. Typically, the treatments are repeated two to four times, spaced six to eight weeks apart. The improvements seen in your skin can be appreciated weeks or even months following your treatments.

Our highly-trained providers look forward to meeting you and answering all of your questions.

ProFractional™ Therapy

ProFractional™ Therapy is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. FACES uses the ProFractional-XC™, the latest technology for performing fractionated skin treatments. The ProFractional-XC™ uses a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. As only a fraction of the skin is treated with the laser, the untreated surrounding skin recruits the skin’s natural repairing capability for more rapid healing and less downtime. This healing response creates new collagen, adding firmness and resilience to your skin. Benefits of the treatment can be appreciated four to six months following treatment. Profractional™ Therapy can also be used to successfully treat certain types of acne scarring. The number of treatments required can vary from person to person. A personalized treatment plan will be discussed with you at the time of your skin care consult.

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm not sure which treatment is right for me. How do I know if I'm a candidate?

We know that it can be overwhelming to try and determine your own best treatment, and you don’t have to. During your consultation, your practitioner carefully evaluates your skin and listens to your concerns before helping you decide which option is best suited for you.

Can I combine laser procedures with other types of skin rejuvenation?

Yes. Laser and energy treatments can be great on their own, but some patients see even better results when they combine 2 or more procedures. Common adjuncts include BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers, which are used to smooth away wrinkles, while laser and light treatments improve skin's texture and coloration.

How can I maintain my results?

You can prolong your results and keep your skin looking its best by following a few simple guidelines. One of the most important ones is to avoid sun exposure — this is especially true in the immediate days and weeks following your procedure, when healing skin is more susceptible to sun damage. Protecting your skin, whether it's through sunscreen, a hat, or just staying indoors, can help preserve your results. If you're not doing so already, post-procedure is a good time to start a good at-home skincare regimen with clinical-strength products. We can help you choose a post-procedure care plan that suits your lifestyle.
