Broadband Light (BBL)

In San Antonio

Broadband Light (BBL) is the world’s most powerful IPL (intense pulsed light) device available in the USA. This treatment is considered the “gold standard” in advanced skin rejuvenation, and here at The Skin Elite, we love the results – as do our clients!

Harness the Power of Light Energy

The light energy emitted by the BBL device gently heats the upper layers of your skin, which works to trigger natural cell regeneration. This encourages the growth of healthy, gorgeous skin, restoring your natural beauty. As a result, you’ll enjoy more vibrant and youthful skin without surgery and with minimal downtime. At the Skin Elite, we make your journey to healthy skin a positive and empowering experience.

BBL for Age Spots, Facial Veins, and other Skin Conditions

BBL stimulates cell regeneration, and most patients enjoy smoother, more evenly-toned, vibrant skin with just a single treatment. The photothermal energy can remove spider veins or tiny blood vessels that cause redness while also removing and reducing the appearance of age and sunspots. Your skin will feel smoother; your pores will be less noticeable, you'll generally enjoy a more youthful glow

Gentle and Effective Facial Rejuvenation with the Pros at The Skin Elite

BBL is a non-invasive and typically gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you can return to work as soon as your treatment is over. Our skincare expert will provide you with more information on what to expect. You will need to avoid direct sunlight, and ensure your skin is well protected with sunscreen when you go out, as your skin will be sensitive to the UV rays during the healing process.


Will I need a series of treatments?

The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient, and we'll ensure that your BBL treatment is customized to your individual skin qualities and cosmetic goals. At The Skin Elite, we use precision techniques coupled with artistry that can only be achieved through advanced training and impressive levels of experience, so you’ll be able to look forward to awe-inspiring results.

What will the procedure feel like? Will I be comfortable?

The procedure is very gentle and safe. For most of our patients, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, but it may be applied if they are sensitive to pain. Your eyes will be protected, and you’ll briefly feel a warm sensation and a “snap” as the light energy is emitted and absorbed by your skin. This is not considered a painful procedure and can leave you with an astonishing improvement in skin quality and tone.

Your procedure may take as little as a few minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and the type of procedure performed. We will discuss your options with you, including the benefits, risks, and expectations, with total transparency. Our clients rave about the improvements in skin quality they achieve with this world-class treatment!

After my treatment, can I go on with my day?

You may experience some redness, which will fade within hours. For some age spots, sun spots, or large freckles, you will first experience a darkening of the treated areas, followed by fading and flaking as the pigment rises to the surface and is shed by your skin.
