Combining BBL and Halo Laser: A Revolutionary Approach to Skin Care

Have you been testing different lotions and creams without getting the skin appearance you want? Are you looking for a longer-lasting solution to age spots, sun damage, saggy skin, and more?

Believe it or not, there is a pair of advanced laser-based technologies that could be just what you need. Find out how BroadBand Light (BBL) and Halo laser treatments can work together to rejuvenate your skin like nothing else you've tried!

What Is BBL Laser Technology?

BBL (short for BroadBand Light) treatment uses pulses of high-energy light to provide non-invasive skincare treatment. The lights used in BBL treatment use the correct wavelength to correct skin irregularities such as age spots and freckles while also stimulating collagen production, which helps increase skin firmness and fight the visible signs of aging.

BBL laser technology can also be used to treat skin pigmentation issues which has the overall effect of producing improvements in skin tone and making you look younger.

How Does the Halo Laser Work? 

The Halo laser is a treatment developed by Sciton. What makes this skincare therapy stand out is its status as a hybrid fractional laser, meaning that it uses a combination of laser types operating at different wavelengths (specifically, ablative and non-ablative wavelengths).

The Halo laser uses ablative lasers to remove the outer layer of affected skin and non-ablative lasers to heat up the tissue lying beneath the surface, thereby encouraging collagen production. By targeting both the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) and the dermis (the layer just beneath the epidermis), Halo laser treatment produces smoother skin that lasts longer.

Similarities Between These Techniques

Among other things, both BBL treatment and the Halo laser are used to rejuvenate aging skin and improve skin quality. Both treatments focus on long-term solutions to conditions such as sun damage, uneven skin complexion, fine lines, and acne scars.

Both techniques are also non-invasive and have minimal downtime, meaning you can receive treatment with minimal side effects and be back to work sooner than with a surgical procedure.

Specific Conditions Treated By Both

Both of these cutting-edge treatments can treat a variety of skin ailments, including sun damage, blotchy spots on the skin, wrinkles, age spots, and even acne.

Either or both treatments can also be used not just on the face but on the neck, chest area, arms and hands, legs, and back. Any area of the body that has been affected by sun damage, age spots, or other skin problems can potentially be treated with BBL or Halo laser treatment.

Notable Differences Between BBL and Halo Laser

Clearly, Halo laser therapy and BBL treatment have a lot in common. Despite all that, there are a few subtle differences.

BBL tends to focus more on the brown and red tones in the skin. Halo, meanwhile, can correct issues in the deeper layers of the skin. This is why combining the two technologies can be so important for achieving the skin appearance you're looking for.

How Many Laser Treatments Do You Need?

Using both BBL and Halo laser treatment can provide multiple benefits. The intense pulses of light used in BBL skin therapy can encourage your skin's natural healing processes on the outermost layers, reducing the appearance of pigmentation and correcting uneven skin tone.

The combination of laser wavelengths used in Halo laser treatment, on the other hand, can physically resurface your skin while also promoting healing in the deeper layers of skin tissue. When used together, these twin treatments can address a wide range of skin concerns, which could lead to youthful skin that is also less blemished and leaves you practically glowing!

The number of treatment sessions you'll need can vary depending on the extent of the skin problems you'd like to have addressed, which is why meeting in person with an expert in cosmetic dermatology is a must!
