BBL Photo Facial
BBL Photo Facial Technique
BBL is a form of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) which works by directly targeting the pigment within your skin. During the procedure, Dr. Sieber will run a handheld device over the skin in your treatment area. The device emits specific pulses of light depending on what’s being treated. The procedure only takes 15-30 minutes, and can be performed anywhere on the body where pigment exists. If your pigment is severe, you may require several treatments for fully realized results. All of this will be discussed with you in detail during your initial consultation.
BBL Photo Facial Improvements:*
Preparing for BBL Photo Facial Procedure
When coming in for a procedure, it’s best to have clean well moisturized skin. Any makeup you have on will need to be removed prior to the procedure. Because the BBL cannot tell the difference between normal pigment from a tan and abnormal pigment from too much sun, please refrain from extended sun exposure or sunless tanning creams/self-tanners for at least 3 weeks prior to your treatment. Do not use aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, ginkgo, or alcohol for at least 1 week before and for 2 days after treatment.

These BBL Photo Facial before and after pictures represent actual patients from Dr. Sieber. They will help to assist you in understanding your various options and enable you to set realistic goals for your own surgical outcome.
Recovery from BBL Photo Facial Procedure
You may experience a little burning or redness for the first 24 hours post procedure. Immediately after treatment, you’ll notice that any areas of pigment will look darker in color. This means that the treatment worked.* It may take up to 30 days for these darkened areas to slough off from the skin, but when they do, healthier and more even toned skin will be revealed.*
