If you’re dreaming of youthful, glowing skin, the Halo laser treatment and the BBL light therapy can help you realize your dreams. They are both excellent facial rejuvenation treatments, but they don’t work the same way.
What is the difference between the Halo laser treatment and BBL light therapy?
Halo Laser treatment
The Halo hybrid fractional laser treatment is a state-of-the-art modality that uses non-ablative and ablative wavelengths simultaneously, to enhance the quality and appearance of the skin. The non-ablative (1470nm) wavelength targets the deeper dermal layer of the skin, while the ablative 2940 wavelength focuses on the outer epidermal layer.
BBL light therapy
The BBL (broad band light) device uses light technology to revitalize and rejuvenate the skin. BBL refreshes the skin and leaves it clearer and more youthful. The BBL device emits bursts of high-intensity light that penetrate below the surface of the skin, and targets the melanin or broken blood vessels.
Halo laser treatment vs BBL light therapy
- The Halo laser stimulates collagen to improve the tone and texture of the skin, whereas BBL light therapy improves tone and texture by targeting unwanted pigment and broken blood vessels.
- BBL is a gentle treatment that requires no downtime. However, depending on the extent of the procedure, downtime after Halo laser treatment can range from 3-5 days.
- The Halo laser treatment is an effective way to reduce signs of aging, and undo sun damage. BBL can be used to treat skin concerns such as sun damage, age spots, brown spots, freckles, and vascular lesions.
