If you could turn back time, would you?
Do you ever find yourself looking in the mirror, wondering when your skin began to change and when those little wrinkles started to appear? What can you do? How can you stop or “fix” these signs of aging? Although it may seem that the damage has already been done and there’s no going back, this isn’t true. Mosaic Med Spa has an amazing tool proven to slow the aging process and even correct the damage that has been done over the years. Cue BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL) by Sciton.
What Exactly is BBL?
You may have heard of BBL before, but do you really know what it is and how it can help restore your skin to a youthful, even glow? BBL stands for BroadBand Light Therapy. It delivers short, intense light to specific areas of your skin. Heat is absorbed, which then stimulates your cells to produce new collagen and the growth of new cells. This is where a more even texture and color as well as a more firm, fresh complexion can begin to reveal itself.
In addition to smoother, brighter looking skin, BBL treatments can also erase fine vessels that may be causing redness and will minimize unwanted pigmented skin abrasions. BBL treatments can even help eliminate unwanted hair!
BBL can encourage the elimination of:
- Uneven skin texture and coloring
- Blood vessels causing redness
- Age spots
- Unwanted hair
Is it Safe?
BBL offers a very safe option for treating non-cancerous skin damage from the sun and acne scars, as well as minimizing wrinkles and fine blood vessels or any other skin trauma. It is FDA approved for use in dermatological applications and will leave you feeling and looking invigorated and more confident than ever.
What Will My Treatments Be Like?
Patients have found that even after just one BBL treatment, they start to see noticeable improvements to their skin. People often wonder how uncomfortable BBL is. Many have described the treatment to be like a “snap” from a rubber band. In addition, the BBL machine has the ability to provide “cooling features” to help with any kind of tenderness that may occur.
Where Can I Have Treatments Done on My Body?
Patients most commonly have treatments done to their:
- Other areas (Speak with your physician about other possible treatment areas if needed)
What Can I Expect After BBL Treatment?
Soon after your treatment, you may see some redness and feel as though you have a slight sunburn. This will not last long and should be better within just a few hours. If your treatment is more aggressive or if your skin is prone to swelling, you may see some moderate puffiness as well. This is all normal and won’t stick around long. You’ll find the BBL treatment offers a safe alternative to other procedures with little to no recovery time.
It is recommended that you avoid sun exposure after treatment as your skin will be more sensitive.
Your skin is the first thing people see. It protects you from harmful things in the environment and should be something you are proud of.

Could My Skin Lesions Be a Sign of Something More?
It’s important to make sure any skin abnormalities or changes in skin texture or skin sensations are not something more going on in your body. Our skin is sensitive and can tell us about other things that could be happening below the surface. Before looking into skin treatments, it is a good idea to be checked by your health care provider to make sure these skin abnormalities are not a sign that your skin is trying to tell you something more.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
We often suggest about 3 – 4 treatments every 3-4 weeks. After that, visits are much less frequent and only take place to in order to maintain and fine tune your results.
