Your Forever Young BBL Treatment

Treatment time varies based on the areas being treated and the number of “passes” being made. You can discuss your goals during a consultation appointment and Dr. Mess can let you know what to expect from your personalized treatment plan.

BBL is a series of very bright light flashes, and you will feel a slight snap, like a finger-flick, on the surface of your skin during treatment. Upon completion, your skin may feel warm and appear slightly reddened for an hour or two. This usually dissipates fairly quickly and you can use cool compresses to ease any discomfort. You will be advised regarding face washing, moisturizing and skin care products. Follow all aftercare instructions for optimal results.

The dark spots on your skin may turn darker, like coffee grounds, over the next 24-48 hours and flake off within 10-14 days, leaving you with beautifully even-toned skin. Your skin does not peel, so you can resume normal activities the day after treatment.
