Photo Facial BBL

What is a Photo Facial?

Photo facial is a popular term for a series of treatments to rejuvenate aging or sun-damaged skin. This treatment reduces redness, unwanted blood vessels, brown spots, fine lines, uneven tone, and pore size of the face, neck, chest and hands. It is recommended that individuals undergo treatment two to four times per year for optimal results.

What is BBL™?

BroadBand Light Therapy, also known as photo facial, uses cutting edge technology to produce younger looking skin that’s firm, and more even in tone and texture. BBL™ is FDA approved and requires little recovery time. The light energy delivered by the BBL™ will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells and regenerate new collagen. This process restores your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother.

What Does Photo Facial Treat?

Any area of your body may be treated. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders, due to the amount these areas are exposed to sunlight. A series of photo facial treatments are highly effective for a variety of skin conditions such as brown spots, small spider veins, general skin redness, and broken capillaries.

Who Should Not Get Photo Facial Treatment?

Those who have recently sun-tanned their skin or anyone who may receive excess sun exposure in the immediate weeks following treatment, should not receive photo treatment for safety reasons. Women who are pregnant or breast feeding should also not receive treatment. Anyone with connective tissue disease, autoimmune disorders, pacemakers or those who are prone to keloids should avoid treatment. You should not receive treatment if you are taking Accutane or for 6 months after stopping Accutane. Individuals who get fever blister attacks (herpes simplex), an ant-herpes medication should be taken prior to your photo facial treatment.

What Can I Expect During My BBL Treatment?

Photo Facial treatment lasts 15-60 minutes. Make-up will be removed, as well as sun block and face creams. Men should shave on the day of treatment, prior to their arrival. Eye shields will be given to protect eyes. Cooling gel will be applied to your skin prior prior to treatment, which will help with the discomfort. After the procedure you will be asked to ice the area and will be given post-treatment instructions.

Our Client Testimonials

I'm so glad I found Dr. Rubach and Dr. Franco; both doctors are kind and considerate. They take into account what your goal is and guide with their expert advice to come up with the best and a realistic outcome. I had gone to them for a mastopexy and rhinoplasty, in which, both I had felt completely at ease about. The result for both are amazing. I'm not insecure about my breasts anymore and I finally feel like my nose belongs on my face. The refined, subtle changes with the rhinoplasty have made a huge difference that looks natural. The mastopexy has given my breasts a more youthful look, and has allowed me to be comfortable with my shape. I can't praise these doctors enough. And I can't forget the rest of the staff. Margo, helped work with me to get everything sorted along the way, and really helped me to feel comfortable for what I was stepping into. Looking for doctors, to have this done by, wasn't easy. I tried to find to someone experienced, skilled, caring, and honest, and I can genuinely say that I not only found one, but two doctors with those characteristics.

I was a rhinoplasty patient at the Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery in Naperville during May of 2015. I needed surgery after encountering "a foul ball to the face" at a minor league game . My nose was shattered into pieces and Dr. Rubach helped me return to my normal self. He perfected my facial symmetry, increased my confidence and increased my breathing ability to 100%. Dr. Rubach did not transform my face into something that I wasn't. He maintained my facial character while naturally making me look "better". If you are considering rhinoplasty, I would highly recommend Dr. Rubach. I had the best experience and a fantastic outcome. The nurses were so kind and everyone made me feel very comfortable throughout the process. The surgery was simple due to the great employees and professional service. Also, I was given as much attention as I needed post-operation. Dr. Rubach was with me every step of the way through my recovery. My face is a mirror image of my pre-op digital imaging, just as Dr. Rubach and I discussed. I cannot believe how fantastic my outcome is!

Words can not express my gratitude to Dr. Franco, he made me feel normal again!!! After carrying twins to full term, my stomach had seen better days. From the minute I met Dr. Franco, I knew he was the right surgeon to perform my tummy tuck. He listened during the consultation!!!! He didn't want to do more than I needed (another PS wanted to do much more work) and answered all of my questions. I am two weeks post op and my results are better than I ever could have imagined. I would highly recommend Dr. Franco and his wonderful staff!!!

Both Dr Rubach and Dr Franco are wonderful, understanding and informative. If you describe what you are looking to achieve they will guide you to the best possible procedure. I have had both Dr Rubach and Dr Franco assist me in making very important decisions regarding changes I was looking to make. I would and I have recommended both doctors to friends and family. I would also like to add that the office staff and office environment is friendly, helpful and very courteous. It was a very positive experience for me and I will always go to this office should the need arise.

I could not be more pleased with both the outcome of my surgery and my experience. Dr. Rubach and the entire staff have been amazing from the first consultation through every post op appointment. I would (and have) referred this practice to others.

~ Stephanie Pass
