Acne BBL Treatment

Acne BBLTM is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne in conjunction with RFA skincare.  BroadBand LightTM is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device delivering light energy deep into your skin to help treat acne, by killing p.acnes bacteria.


$100 First Acne BBL Treatment 
$75 Spot Treatments- This can be done every 10-14 days.
+$50 Add-on Peel 

2- Step Laser Treatment

  1. Skin is first treated with BLUE BBL light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria at its source, deep down in the pores.
  2. Skin is then treated with YELLOW BBL light to reduce inflammation and acne-associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin.

Optional Add-On Peel $50

In addition to the Acne BBL, a chemical exfoliant can be applied as the very last step for a dual effect.  This add-on helps to treat acne that has already surfaced and also provides cellular exfoliation for maximum results.


What areas can be treated?

Most areas of your body can be treated. The most common treatment areas are on the face, neck, and back.

What type of acne can be treated?

Inflamed acne such as cystic, nodular, pustular, and papular acne.  This does not treat non-inflamed acne such as open or closed comedones (whiteheads or blackheads).

How many treatments are recommended?

A series of 6 is ideal.  This treatment can be done every 10-14 days. 

How long does the treatment take?

The appointment time is 30 minutes.  You can expect to see some improvement after just one treatment, but treatment time and the total number of treatments needed vary from patient to patient.

Is the treatment uncomfortable?

The procedure is a non-invasive, effective, and comfortable treatment. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic due to the quick nature of the treatment. 

Is there any downtime?

You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. Your clinician will provide you with more information on what to expect as well as give you an aftercare plan to follow that will involve avoiding direct sun exposure and using sunscreen.  If additional peel is added on to treatment, expect mild peeling or dryness  to begin after 24-48 hrs.  You can resume homecare after 24 hrs or when dryness has subsided.  


Anyone currently taking Accutane. Patients must be off Accutane for at least 6 months prior to undergoing this treatment. 

Antibiotics in the cycline or floxacin categories are extremely photosensitizing and should be discontinued a week before treatment. 

Patients should not have a spray tan on the treated area before treatment.

Patients can not be pregnant, have a risk of seizures, active infections in the treatment area or a recent sunburn before treatment.
