At Denver Plastic Surgery Associates, we are often asked by patients about the difference between an IPL Photofacial and a BBL treatment. BBL Correct and Forever Young BBL™ are enhanced forms of IPL Photofacials.

These provide our patients with a way to address sun damage, age spots, uneven tone & texture, improve skin firmness, treat acne & acne scars, and even change gene expression in your skin in a safer, more effective way.

Keep reading to learn all about how IPL Photofacials and BBL in Denver are different.

What is IPL?

Intense pulsed light, or IPL, treatments have been around since the mid-1990s. Medical aestheticians use this pulsed light technology to treat sun spots, age spots, rosacea, flushing, enlarged pores, and more with targeted flashing light waves.

The range of light waves in an IPL treatment target hemoglobin and melanin in the skin, eliminating these spots of hyperpigmentation.

The light waves also gently heat deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and scars.

What makes BBL in Denver different?

Broadband light, AKA BBL, is the latest and greatest form of IPL technology.

The FDA-cleared BBL technology by Sciton offers different filtering capabilities, energy levels, and can treat the skin with even greater precision than the IPL treatments of the past.

With BBL in Denver, we are able to use dual light energy to not only deliver better results than IPL treatments, but also to provide a safer, more comfortable treatment for you.

Our BBL machine has precision thermoelectric cooling technology to cool your skin and ensure your comfort throughout the 30 minute treatment.

Patients also typically require fewer treatments to successfully address their concerns.

Depending on your skin type and goals, we may recommend 1-3 sessions of BBL in Denver spaced 3-4 weeks apart, while IPL Photofacials require up to 6 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart.

Additionally, Sciton is the only manufacturer of BBL technology, in contrast to the dozens of IPL devices on the market today.

Since the results of pulsed light treatments are so dependent on having a good, competent provider, Sciton offers unparalleled training and advanced courses to BBL providers to ensure patients are offered the best, safest, and most effective treatments possible.

Why Choose BBL in Denver?

IPL and BBL treatments offer similar results. Both help patients address sun damage, enlarged pores, rosacea, fine lines & wrinkles, uneven tone & texture, acne, and acne scars.

However, BBL in Denver with our advanced Sciton device and experienced providers means that our patients get better results, faster.

The final game-changing difference between BBL in Denver and IPL is that Forever Young BBL is the only treatment on the market that can change and reverse the expression of genes associated with aging and longevity.

This allows us to restore the genetic pattern of your youth to have glowing, firm skin that you’ll want to show off.
