IS BBL THE SAME AS IPL?
BBL is a highly advanced version of IPL. The main advantages of BBL over regular IPL are the availability of more accurate and customizable treatments, lower risk of complications, less recovery time, and the number of treatments needed to reach desired results. BBL is also safe and effective for patients with darker skin types, distinguishing it from any other pulsed light therapy on the market.WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. Most people ask for treatments on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.
HOW LONG WILL MY TREATMENT TAKE?
BBL is a quick procedure, typically taking around 30 minutes.HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. Your Riva clinician will personalize a plan based on the level of improvement you desire.WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING THE PROCEDURE?
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. Typically, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, however your Riva clinician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas. You may feel a quick, warm sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas.HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECOVER?
This is a non-invasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to apply makeup, return to work and resume most of your activities immediately.WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER THE TREATMENT?
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated area followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage.
• your treated skin will feel smoother
• pores will be less noticeable
• sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade
Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated. It is important to follow
your clinician’s post treatment plan.
Your Riva medical professional will provide you with more information on what to expect, as well as give you an aftercare plan to follow that will involve avoiding direct sun exposure, using a proper sunscreen, and using our innovative skincare line to increase the efficacy of your procedure.
