What is BBL?

BBL Treatment

BBL Treatment (Broad Band Light) is the most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device on the market today. It sets new standards in treating skin conditions associated with aging, active life styles, and sun damage. BBL has the ability to provide dermal renewal, permanent hair reduction, and the treatment of pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, melasma, and acne.

Patients can achieve significant skin improvements non-invasively with BBL. Consistent and reproducible clinical results make BBL a highly desired procedure for women and men who are interested in reversing the signs of aging. BBL uses broad-spectrum visible and infrared light to selectively heat layers of skin, getting rid of undesired pigmentation, redness and other unwanted conditions.

With the broadest range of wavelengths, Dr. Gross and his team can personalize treatments to fit each patient’s needs. BBL requires fewer treatments to achieve visible and superior results above other IPL systems. Forever Young BBL is not just an aesthetic treatment for existing skin damage. It can also be a preventive regimen also know as “Prejuvenation” for keeping your skin looking young.

Candidates for BBL

  • Age spots
  • Pigmented lesions such as dyschromia and ephelides
  • Vascular lesions such as rosacea, telangiectasia and cherry angiomas
  • Deeper lesions on darker skin types

BBL Treatment

BBL is the perfect treatment option for patients concerned about pigmentation issues or rosacea. BBL can reduce unwanted melanin and eliminate the fine vessels that cause redness. It also helps skin look smoother, healthier, vibrant and more even with fewer treatments than other IPL systems.

BBL uses photothermal energy to gently heat the upper layers of skin, stimulating the regeneration of cells and taking years off the face, neck, hands or almost any other part of the body — often after just one treatment. Patients can have a BBL treatment alone or combine it with other aesthetic procedures.

Proven to Make Skin Look 10 Years Younger

BBL Treatment

Forever Young BBL™ is clinically proven not only to correct sun damage, but also to prevent the signs of aging skin. This non-invasive treatment delivers BroadBand Light to the epidermis and dermis, stimulating changes in skin tone, texture, elasticity and pigmentation — with visible, long-lasting improvement after just one treatment. All with zero downtime.

Clinical Studies

In a retrospective study, 15 patients ages 38 to 69 received at least one BBL treatment per year for 5 to 11 years. Then, based on pre- and post-treatment photos, about 500 evaluators estimated the age of each patient. The study found that patients’ skin looked about 10 years younger than its actual age due to improvement in sun damage, wrinkles, and other signs of aging skin.

Georgia Dermatology Center has now partnered with Olansky Dermatology & Aesthetics. This partnership gives our patients added confidence and convenience when choosing the right source for their skin-related medical needs.

Our acclaimed providers, staff, and top-tier level of service will remain the same, Dr. Gross will be here to lead the charge at our Cumming office. We will continue to provide our patients with the same quality care and excellent service that has made us the “Best of Forsyth” for eight years in a row.

Georgia Dermatology Center’s suite of services will be increased by several additions. These include Mohs surgery, an advanced surgical procedure that removes skin cancer effectively using only local anesthesia. Additionally, this partnership will allow our patients to take advantage of a larger group of accepted insurance options. This widens the scope of patient access without incurring out-of-network fees.

The end result of this merger will only heighten patient care, and that our primary mission.
