It is very important to protect your skin from the sun especially living in California. Rejuva Medical Aesthetics, under the direction of Kian Karimi, MD, FACS, and Chester Griffiths, MD, FACS, double board-certified plastic surgeons, offers Broadband Light (BBL™) therapy to people living in and around Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and Brentwood, CA, who want to correct sun damage and other skin hyperpigmentation revealing a healthier, more youthful glow.
What is Broadband Light (BBL™)?
Broadband Light Therapy (BBL™) is a cosmetic treatment using light therapy to rejuvenate the skin, reduce hyperpigmentation resulting from sun damage, birthmarks, bruises, facial spider veins, and other skin issues due to aging. BBL™ removes dead skin cells and improves other skin imperfections and tightens connective tissues in the areas where the treatment is performed to leave the skin healthy, vibrant and more youthful.
BBL™ is most commonly used on the following areas:
- Back of the hands

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Broadband Light/BBL™?
If you have noticeable hyperpigmentation from birthmarks, bruises, sun damage or other skin condition, you may be an excellent candidate for Broadband Light/BBL™ therapy. It is ideal for fair skin that shows visible dark areas and spots on the skin.
What Do I Do to Prepare for Broadband Light Therapy/BBL™?
To prepare for BBL™, we recommend you avoid the sun or tanning lotions for at least two weeks prior to the treatment to get the best results. Additionally, it is always advised to stop smoking prior to your treatments to avoid any negative results.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Broadband Light/BBL™ Treatment?
A cooling gel is first applied to the area followed by the applicator that delivers the BBL™ therapy. As the wand is moved over the targeted area, it delivers brief pulses of light energy to the skin in the targeted area seeking out red and brown discoloration, and slowly diminishes its appearance. At the same time, it boosts collagen production. BBL™ therapy is effective at treating rosacea, sun spots, bruises, birthmarks, facial veins and other issues to create an even skin tone and healthy complexion.
How Long Does It Take to Broadband Light/BBL™?
The amount of time to complete the treatment depends on the area being treated; however, it typically takes about 15-30 minutes.
What to Expect After Broadband Light Therapy/BBL™
After your BBL™ therapy, you may have some slight redness in the area similar to a mild sunburn, which clears up within a few days. There may be some flaking as the pigmentation comes to the surface. It is important to avoid excess sun exposure so that the new skin does not get discolored and the targeted pigmentation does not get darker as it dissipates.
When Will I See the Results?
The results from Broadband Light/BBL™ vary with each person. The more intense the pigmentation, the longer it takes to get the full results from the treatment. Even though you see some results from one treatment, as they continue, the results get better. Hyperpigmentation is greatly diminished or eliminated.
How Much Does Broadband Light /BBL™ Cost in Los Angeles?
