Frequently Asked Questions

BBL Corrective

BroadBand Light BBL® is the worlds most powerful IPL device on the market. It sets new standards for achieving significant skin improvements associated with aging, removing undesired pigmentation, reducing redness and other vascular conditions. BBL corrective reduces unwanted melanin and eliminates fine vessels that cause redness. Helping your skin look smoother, healthier and vibrant with a more even skin tone. Requires less treatments than other IPL systems.
BBL uses photothermal energy to gently heat the upper layers of the skin, stimulating regeneration of cells and dramatically giving skin a more youthful appearance.

BBL Forever Young

Forever Young BBL is recognised worldwide to provide consistent outstanding results.
In fact, it is the only device that has been shown to change the expression of genes associated with aging. It was proven in a long-term clinical study. Patients received regular BBL treatments over the course of a decade. At the end of the study, doctors judged the patients to appear 11 years younger than their actual age. In other words, they looked younger than when the study began. *
This clinically proven treatment, turns back the clock by improving visible signs associated with aging.
This innovative technology uniquely sends energy deep into the skin to boost your body’s natural ability to fight aging. Resulting in visibly refreshed more youthful looking skin.

BBL Forever Clear

Forever Clear BBL is a cutting-edge acne treatment that destroys acne-causing bacteria, reduces inflammation and redness, leaving you with clear, healthy more radiant skin. Most clients notice visible results just after one treatment, with minimal to no downtime.

MOXI & BroadBand Light (BBL) two advanced skin treatments that pair perfectly for dramatic results.

Moxi is designed to deliver dramatic tonal and textural improvements to your face, while BBL works well at repairing rosacea, resolving red spots, and improving skin texture. Together, laser and light therapy form a cohesive strategy at reversing and delaying the effects of aging on our skin.

SkinTyte

Skintyte uses infrared light technology to deeply heat dermal collagen while protecting the top layer of the skin with sapphire cooling. The energy is delivered in rapid but gentle pulses heating dermal collagen, causing partial denaturation and contraction of collagen. This process initiates the body’s own natural healing process which creates new formation of collagen leading to firmer tighter skin. Aids in tightening mild to moderate laxity and sagging giving the skin a firmer more youthful appearance.
This is safe for all skin types and can treat almost anywhere on the body with no downtime.

Frequently asked questions

What is involved in the treatment?

A thorough consultation will initially be conducted to determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment.
Once a cleanse and prepping of the skin is complete, your eyes will be protected with safety goggles or eye shields. A cool gel will then be applied to the area being treated. Then, a chilled applicator is placed on the skin to deliver the light energy. Some areas on the skin will be more sensitive than others, however most clients report the sensation feels like a “warm flick” or “rubber band snap” to the skin. The treatment can take up to 15-60 minutes depending on the area being treated.
It is very important to avoid direct sun exposure 30 days prior and 30 days after your treatment. In some cases, a topical serum to inhibit the production of melanin is required to ensure your skin is in optimal condition to treat. Fake tan cannot be used three weeks before treatment otherwise light can be attracted to it and burning can occur.

What happens after my treatment?

Initially after the treatment you may experience some redness and a warmth to the skin, some clients describe this sensation like a mild sunburn, this generally resolves in a few hours. In most cases you are able to apply makeup and resume most of your activities immediately. However, you must avoid excessive exercise, hot showers or saunas and direct sun exposure.

With BBL Corrective and Forever Young, for any pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated area followed by fading and some flaking off at a later stage, 7-10 days after for face and 14-21 days for body. Once this stage has completed your skin will feel smoother, pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots and uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on individual conditions, number of treatments and the area being treated. Your treatment course and results will be explained to you on consultation.

How many treatments do I need?

The number of treatments needed and results lasted varies on each individual. This can depend on a range of factors such as; skin condition, time spent outdoors, hormonal medications and medical conditions.
On your initial consultation a personalised treatment plan will be provided, however this can change depending on your skin response to the treatment.

Many patients get a satisfactory improvement just after 1-2 treatments. However, with stubborn skin conditions such as sun spots, rosacea and acne, a course of treatments from 3-6 may be needed. Length in-between treatments depends on the condition being treated.
Pigment 4-6 weeks, for rosacea and acne 2-3 weeks.

Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6-12months to ensure long lasting results. For optimal results and to avoid the ageing process, it is recommended to maintain results with Forever Young BBL every three months.

How does it work?

BBL sends light energy which gets converted into heat when reaching top layers of the skin, this gently heats the skins tissue. The heat energy is attracted and absorbed to different colours in the skin such as melanin (brown and pigment spots) and reds (fine broken blood vessels and papules)
The light then damages the unwanted concerns, removing it from the skin to its natural healthy condition. This results in the skin achieving even colour, refined texture and giving a more youthful appearance. BBL Forever clear adds on an extra step at the start with a 415nm filter to kill off the bacteria causing acne.

What to expect after MOXI?

You can expect redness and heat in the skin for a few hours following the procedure. Mild swelling can occur the following day. It’s also normal for your skin to feel rough like sandpaper for a few days while your skin heals.

Are there contraindications for the BBL + Moxi Treatment

Are there contraindications?
