When our patients come to us asking how to stay young-looking, BBL is one of the top treatments we recommend for aging gracefully. We’ve been using broadband light therapy in the Bay area for years to help our patients reverse signs of aging, heal sun damage, and smooth out skin texture issues.
Let’s shed a little light (😉) on the BBL before and after experience at Entre Nous Aesthetics.
Before BBL we always start with a consultation
The consultation is integral to everything we do at Entre Nous. Even when patients come in knowing the treatment they want, we sit down for an in-depth consultation to get to know you and your specific needs. This lets us tailor your treatment plan completely to your skin!
For broadband light therapy, we’ll talk about a couple of things specifically. We’ll want to know about your home skincare routine, specifically what products you use.
BBL is similar to laser resurfacing, so we need to know whether you’re using products that will increase your skin’s sensitivity, like retinol.

If you don’t use any skincare products, there’s a chance we’ll start you on a regimen to prepare your skin for your BBL treatment. It’s all part of making sure you get the best results!
Recovery tips for after BBL therapy
Your recovery will be based on your unique skin and treatment plan, but these are some general guidelines everyone can follow.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize
Keeping your skin hydrated is something you should be doing daily, but is also a crucial part of healing after BBL.
Don’t pick at it; we mean it!
As your skin starts to shed the damaged tissue, the temptation to “help” it along will be there. You must resist! Picking can lead to scarring and damage to your skin. Gently cleansing each day will help the process go quickly.
Become a vampire
Ok, not literally. But you should avoid the sun while your skin is healing and if you can’t avoid sun exposure, you should wear an SPF of at least 30!
