The BBL PhotoFacial is one of the most popular “laser” skin rejuvenation treatments at our Chico med spa because it addresses multiple skin concerns, ranging from hyperpigmentation and age spots to rosacea and spider veins. This versatile treatment produces excellent results and requires little to no downtime after the procedure.
Considered the gold standard of light-based skin rejuvenation treatments, the BBL PhotoFacial delivers beams of broad-spectrum light below the skin’s surface to minimize signs of aging, redness associated with rosacea, and other skin concerns. Unlike lasers, which use pinpoint accuracy to target treatment areas, the BBL procedure uses a broad spectrum of non-invasive light waves to target and treat trouble spots and damaged tissue over a larger area. The procedure targets treatment areas with rapid pulses of broadband light, gently warming the skin’s outer layers as the deeper layers absorb the heat, triggering the production of new collagen.
Sophisticated computer software controls the intensity of the light, delivered through a small handheld device, to ensure it’s safe and effective.
“PhotoFacials made a huge difference in the redness and pigmentation in my face. My esthetician thought I had a face lift! My husband and a good friend were so impressed they both bought a series of PhotoFacials.”

What Are the Benefits of a BBL PhotoFacial?
The remarkable thing aboutPhotoFacial is that it can address a wide variety of conditions simultaneously. BBL PhotoFacial treatments produce consistent, visible improvements in the skin’s appearance that become more pronounced with each treatment.
As early as the first treatment, you may notice a more even skin tone and a smoother look and feel. We recommend 5 treatment sessions for optimal results.
Among the conditions that we successfully treat with the BBL PhotoFacial include:
Capillaries of the décolletage
Uneven, blotchy skin tone
Rough skin texture
Facial lines and wrinkles
The treatment works best for patients with lighter skin tones because the melanin in the skin absorbs the light, so olive or brown skin can be at risk of burning, hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, and even scarring.
How Do BBL PhotoFacials Treat Rosacea?
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes blushing or flushing, bumps, and visible facial blood vessels. Symptoms flare and then fade, but left untreated, rosacea can get worse and could become permanent. BBL PhotoFacial is an excellent treatment option that can reduce or destroy facial and décolletage capillaries (tiny blood vessels). Our providers have advanced training using innovative technologies to comprehensively treat rosacea and other skin imperfections with BBL PhotoFacial and other skin rejuvenation treatments such as BBL® Ultra and MicroLaserPeel®.

How Much Do BBL PhotoFacials Cost?
The cost of a BBL PhotoFacial treatment depends on the area or areas being treated, the patient’s cosmetic goals, and the training and experience of the provider. We know that cost is a factor for many patients when choosing a provider. Still, it’s essential to understand the increased risks of having inadequately trained providers perform laser or light-based treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments will I need?
Each patient’s needs are different, but we typically recommend 5 treatment sessions performed every few weeks to produce the optimal results.
What does a BBL PhotoFacial treatment feel like?
Most patients don’t experience any discomfort during the procedure. Some say they feel a “popping” sensation when the pulses of light are delivered. Your provider can apply a numbing cream to the treatment area before the procedure if you desire.
What precautions should I take after a BBL PhotoFacial?
You should apply sunscreen daily to the treatment area and avoid exposure to direct sunlight. You should also use gentle skincare products and avoid scrubbing the area until the skin is no longer sensitive.
