Laser and BBL (BroadBand Light) skin resurfacing are two of the most popular skin resurfacing procedures. At the L.A.B. med spa in Southlake, Texas, patients often seek these treatments to improve their skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. These treatments are also used to address unwanted birthmarks, freckles, and even the early signs of aging, including the slow development of fine lines and wrinkles. The experienced providers at the L.A.B. are here to help you learn about these treatments and how useful they are in enhancing the look and health of the skin.
At The L.A.B. Med Spa, we are pleased to provide:
We are committed to ensuring patients have safe and effective options for improving their skin’s appearance. This is why we use FDA-cleared devices and have extensive training on administering this light energy to achieve the desired results. We want patients to know that treatments with our team are safe for the skin and can help them reach their skin care goals faster than topical products alone. In fact, we can also work with patients to help them choose cleansers, toners, and moisturizers that may be best for their skin to help them maintain the results from their laser and BBL skin resurfacing treatment longer!
Both laser and BBL resurfacing treatments use light energy to improve the appearance of the skin, but there are some key differences between the two.
Laser skin resurfacing uses a laser beam to target specific areas of the skin. The laser effectively destroys the outside layer of skin, which encourages new skin growth. Laser resurfacing can be used to treat acne scars.
BBL skin resurfacing uses broadband light energy to target specific areas of the skin. The light energy destroys the outer layer of skin, which encourages new skin growth. BBL resurfacing can be used to treat age spots.
Both laser and BBL skin resurfacing are effective treatments for improving the appearance of the skin and treating wrinkles, fine lines, and other blemishes. Laser resurfacing is more invasive than BBL resurfacing, so it may require more downtime for healing. Additionally, laser resurfacing can cause more side effects than BBL resurfacing, such as redness, swelling, and irritation. Choosing the one right for you with the help of our doctors is the best way to ensure you get the results you truly desire!
