How IPL Works
During the treatment, the BBL delivers pulses of light. The light goes through unique filters, is temperature controlled, and is delivered to the target area of treatment. The light stimulates collagen, and selectively treats the signs of aging, such as: fine lines, brown (age) spots, sun-damage, broken blood vessels, and other flaws. Current research shows that the BBL stimulates “younger” gene expression and can make treated skin (over time) appear years and even decades more youthful. How cool is that!
What to Expect
The treated area will be scanned with the BBL, pulsing light to assure that no area is missed. Multiple passes are required, and treatment is individualized based on each patients needs at Contour Medical in Gilbert. During the treatment, the skin is protected with a Zimmer chiller (blows cold air), which cools the skin. Unique to the BBL is precise temperature control of the sapphire filter, which is individualized based on the patient. There is typically a glow to the skin following treatment and a gradual reduction in the brown and red pigments. Results improve with each treatment. A single treatment takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the area. Dr. McCoy recommends a series of 3 treatments, which consistently delivers a beautiful and natural result. Long term, based on the studies demonstrating younger gene expression, Dr. McCoy recommends at least 2 Forever BBL treatments per year.
