Can Foever Clear BBL™ Reduce Acne Scars?
Acne scars can make you feel self-conscious about your complexion. You might want to reduce them before a big event or improve your skin's overall health. Unfortunately, many patients suffer from acne throughout their lives, and once the condition has healed, they may look for ways to improve the texture of their skin. If you have tried multiple over-the-counter solutions or other types of professional treatments, but nothing seems to work, you may benefit from BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL). At Modern Medical Spa in Dallas, TX, Dr. David Genecov is a board-certified cosmetic surgeon and medical director who assists in nonsurgical skin health solutions. For patients who experience acne scars, please read through our blog to learn more about BBL and schedule a consultation with Dr. Genecov.
How does BBL work on acne scars?
Creating pitted or raised areas on the skin, causes of acne scars include excess collagen or not enough collagen as the skin heals from inflamed blemishes. When acne scars occur, it can make the skin look uneven or cause irritation when wearing certain kinds of cosmetics or makeup. To help treat your sensitive skin, we start by completing a consultation to ensure this procedure is right for you. Before performing BBL, patients receive a thorough skin assessment, and we discuss any medical history that might impact the results of your treatment. From there, Dr. Genecov can develop a strategy that decreases the appearance of your acne scars. In some cases, patients may benefit more from other types of noninvasive treatments, including microneedling with SkinPen® technology, PRP therapy, and laser skin resurfacing.
At the time of your BBL session, we complete your procedure in one of our private, spacious treatment rooms, and it usually only requires about an hour. Most patients report a moderate amount of discomfort during their treatment, but it is generally manageable. You can also resume your daily activities after your BBL procedure. Compared to other laser treatment types, you can see your new results quickly with Forever Clear BBL technology. Following your session in Dallas, TX, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions to improve your outcomes; however, a few of the most important recommendations include protecting the skin from UV light and avoiding anti-inflammatory medications. If needed, we can help you schedule appointments for additional treatments.
BBL vs. IPL. What's the difference?
You may have heard about both of these options and wondered what the difference is? Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) utilizes a variety of light waves to reduce sun-damaged skin. BBL also uses high powered light to warm the complexion and encourage the production of collagen, and it is the latest form of photothermal technology. After undergoing a BBL treatment, you can attain supple skin, so your complexion looks even and great for photos.
