BBL Laser Details

Hi babes! I’m SO excited to share my experience with the BBL laser and my results.

As I mentioned in my last post, Flawless Skin, I’ve been on a journey to achieve clear skin.  I have struggled with major adult acne, redness, broken capillaries, dark spot and sun damage.  I finally have a good skincare routine down, but I wanted to take it a step further and find a laser that would help even out my skin, lighten my spots all while helping the overall texture of my face.  BBL was it, y’all!!

I partnered up with PURE Medical Spa, a local Idaho spot, to zip and zap my face!  I have done IPL, a similar laser, 3 times before but found it to be much more painful and a longer down time.  Ok, ok so what is the BBL laser all about…

What is BBL?

The BBL laser is often called photo rejuvenation or photo facial.  It is the new gold-standard for the treatment of:

hyperpigmentation

sun-damage

rosacea

vascular lesions

active acne

collagen rejuvenation for improved skin texture and tone

How Does it Work?

It takes about 30 minutes for your face.  You can request numbing cream prior to the treatment but honestly, I don’t think it’s needed.  I opted out and would do the same again.  I didn’t think this laser was painful.  It basically feels like little flicks on your face.  Before starting the procedure, you will put on some type of goggle over your eyes to protect you from the light.  The technician will then apply a cooling gel to your face and start the procedure.  The tip of the laser is a crystal and has cooling properties, which helps with any discomfort you may have.  My amazing nurse, Carey, did two passes on my face and then spot treated certain areas where I had more sun damage and broken capillaries.  If you want to see a video of me getting mine done, head over to my Instagram and click on the “SKIN” highlight.

Immediately after the treatment, I could see my spots darken and sun-damage from underneath my skin start to come to the surface.  It was CRAZY… in like, a very good way!!  Over the next week more pigmentation came to the surface, looking like coffee grounds, and then legit, fell off.  The week following the laser, I just moisturized, moisturized and moisturized some more!

Is There Down Time?

My short answer is, no.  I would say the day you get it, you most likely would want to go home and chill.  I prefer not putting makeup on right after but you could.  In the following days after the procedure, it was very easy to cover with makeup .  If you take a look at my day 1 and 2 images above, these were the two days my spots were the darkest.

How Many Treatments Do You Need?

You many notice a change in your skin after only one treatment as I did – see images above.  They usually recommend 3-5 treatments depending on your skin.  I am looking forward to doing a few more this year.

What does it Cost?

On average the cost for one treatment on your face is around $350.

  2. How often do you have to get bbl treatments? Is it a one or two and done or does it come back and you have to do a lot of maintenance

    • Hi Jen! I did a series of 3 at first. It’s important to take care of you skin after – lots of sunscreen. Now I do one at least once a year.

Well I’ve been told I don’t look my age but I wanna keep it that way! I tried Botox for the first time last year and I really hope that something like this would smooth out some of the texture and pigmentation starting to show! 💓. You have given me such a renewed sense of taking time for self love/care!

  15. Your skin looks 🙌🏻 Curious to see if this would help with the redness and bumps I have on my face. Awesome giveaway!!

  16. I’ve heard great results from this treatment, my concern just for myself would be my skin is thin because of heart medications I take. The medicine I take for my heart has done such horrible things to my skin. My face and my legs- I can cover my legs but not my face. I would love just to try this treatment and if i see the results you have seen for your skin I know i would continue to do more as treatment requires.

  17. Love reading about this process & your results, thank you so much for sharing! I love my freckles but not my serious sunspots. I’ve been researching various skincare procedures & not only reading about BBL, but seeing how it works, is SO helpful! Xoxo

  18. You’ve inspired me, I want to try this so badly! And love that you found someone local. No more excuses right??
    You skin looks amazing!

  19. That is amazing!! Thank you so much for sharing your results. I know being open about something so personal (like skincare) is always difficult and can be a sensitive subject. I think that’s wonderful you’re so confident in doing so. You’re definitely doing and using social media the right way!!

    I visited Idaho last year and would love to have another reason to go back 💕!!

  20. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to try this laser treatment, I don’t live in the area but I would definitely travel because it’s not to far! 💖
