BroadBand Light (BBL™) Therapy with Dr. JoAnne Lopes

In the realm of aesthetic enhancement, the quest for radiant, age-defying skin remains a common pursuit. BroadBand Light (BBL™) Therapy emerges as a gold standard in photorejuvenation, harnessing the power of light to address various skin imperfections, from sun-induced freckles to age spots and redness.

By targeting specific chromophores (particles that color the skin) in the skin, BBL™ emits light energy that gently heats the upper layers of the skin, stimulating skin cells to regenerate and produce collagen. This process helps restore the skin to its natural beauty, making it clearer, smoother, more vibrant, and younger-looking.

Dr. JoAnne Lopes, renowned for her dedication to bringing the best and latest in skincare to her patients, proudly offers BBL™ treatments. With her vast experience and a keen eye for detail, Dr. Lopes ensures that each BBL™ session is meticulously tailored to the individual’s skin condition and desired outcomes. Trust in Dr. Lopes’ expertise with BBL™ to unlock a rejuvenated complexion, reflecting a fresher, more vibrant you. Whether you’re combating the visible signs of aging or aiming to enhance your skin’s natural luminosity, Dr. Lopes’ proficiency with the BBL™ technology promises results that both look and feel remarkable.

Benefits of BBL™ with Dr. JoAnne Lopes

Rejuvenated Complexion:

BBL™, or BroadBand Light, uses a broad spectrum of light energy to target melanin in the skin. This absorption of light by melanin causes age spots and sun damage to gradually fade, revealing a brighter, more refreshed complexion. The process helps eliminate hyperpigmented cells, facilitating a more even skin tone.

Clearer Skin:

BBL™ technology emits light at specific wavelengths that target p-acne bacteria, one of the primary causes of acne breakouts. Additionally, the light helps reduce inflammation, a key factor in rosacea. With consistent treatments, patients often observe a decline in acne flare-ups and a calmer skin appearance.

Youthful Appearance:

One of the profound effects of BBL™ treatments is the stimulation of collagen production. Collagen is a vital protein in the skin that gives it its structure and firmness. As we age, collagen production decreases, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. BBL™ light energy penetrates the skin, stimulating fibroblast cells to produce more collagen, effectively smoothing out fine lines and rejuvenating the skin’s texture.

Uniform Skin Tone:

Vascular lesions, like broken blood vessels, and pigmented lesions, like freckles or age spots, absorb the BBL™ light energy. This causes them to break down and get naturally eliminated by the body. Over time, with regular treatments, the skin shows fewer visible imperfections, leading to a more harmonious and consistent skin tone.

Long-lasting Hair Reduction:

BBL™ treatments for hair removal specifically target the melanin in hair follicles. The light energy is absorbed by the melanin, creating heat that damages the follicle, reducing its ability to grow new hair. As a result, the treated areas experience smoother skin with significantly reduced hair growth, minimizing the need for other hair removal methods.

Our patients glow, and their reviews shine!

I came here seeking a specific surgery to boost my self confidence. Coming in I was very nervous, self conscious and insecure. When I came in for a consultation, the staff was so welcoming, free of judgement and gentle. I was able to schedule the surgery within 2 weeks. Coming in again still nervous, the staff was always considerate of my feelings. Dr. Lopes explained everything thoroughly, answered any questions and gave me security moving forward. The surgery went amazing. Despite all my nerves and anxiety, I was able to fall asleep. The recovery did take 6 weeks but overall, I am so blessed I came here and had an amazing experience. She has truly changed my life and I have never felt this confident before within my own body. I highly recommend coming here! Everyone is so respectful, kind and professional. If I were to need anything else, I know where to keep coming!

I had an amazing experience with two procedures that Dr. Joan Lopes performed on me. One of them was brachioplasty, and the other was myellevate. I had wonderful results. I love the entire staff. Dr. Lopes is so sweet and so caring, very professional. I would never go anywhere else for any other procedure. I would recommend to all of my friends and family. From beginning to end, the experience was amazing !

Are You a Candidate for BBL™ with Dr. JoAnne Lopes?

If you’re looking to revitalize your skin and address specific concerns like sun damage, age spots, acne, or redness, BBL™ treatments might be the solution you’ve been seeking. Ideal candidates for BBL™ treatments often exhibit the following characteristics:

  • Visible Signs of Aging: Those with sun spots, age spots, fine lines, or decreased skin elasticity may benefit significantly from BBL™ treatments.

  • Skin Conditions: Individuals suffering from acne, rosacea, or vascular lesions can experience relief and improved appearance with BBL™.

  • Desire for Hair Reduction: If you’re looking to reduce hair growth in certain areas and have lighter skin tones and darker hair, BBL™ treatments can offer effective and long-lasting results.

  • Good Health: It’s essential for candidates to be in general good health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes. While BBL™ is transformative, it’s crucial to understand its scope and capabilities.

  • No Recent Sunburns: Skin that’s recently been sunburned or excessively tanned might be more sensitive to BBL™ light, so it’s recommended to avoid intense sun exposure before your treatment.

If any of the above resonates with your skin goals and conditions, BBL™ might be a suitable option. Dr. Lopes and her team are dedicated to ensuring you receive the best care and advice. Schedule a consultation to discuss your specific needs and determine if BBL™ with Dr. Lopes is the right choice for your skin rejuvenation journey.
