Photo Rejuvenation FAQs

What Is Photo Rejuvenation / BBL / IPL Skin Rejuvenation?

There are many terms for one true meaning – brighter and better-looking skin. Simply put, Dr. Guarino uses the BBL (BroadBand Light) system to achieve photo rejuvenation or skin rejuvenation results. The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is the light used to brighten and correct damaged skin due to sun exposure.

What Will Happen During the Photo Rejuvenation Procedure?

The BBL laser will heat up the layers of your skin and you will briefly feel a warming sensation. The heat absorbed by the target areas will stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen and reduce any pigment lesions. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type and depth of the procedure performed.

What Should I Expect After Photo Rejuvenation Treatment?

You may experience some redness on the affected area, but this will resolve in a few hours. In most cases Dr. Guarino can achieve the patient’s desired result in 2 – 4 treatments. You’ll notice your skin will be smoother, fine wrinkles will be less noticeable and the skin coloring will be more even. Your skin will be radiant and you’ll have a more youthful appearance.
