What is Broadband Light Therapy?
BroadBand Light Therapy (or BBL) uses regenerating technology to enhance the aesthetics of the skin, and also makes it appear younger and smoother. It works by employing therapeutic light energy that gently warms the top layer of skin and generates collagen production. Patients with a variety of skin issues can benefit from BBL, as it functions to address unwanted freckles, rosacea, broken blood vessels, and sun damage. It can also help create a more smooth and even skin surface texture to generate fresh, glowing skin. BBL may be added to other aesthetic treatments to fulfill your wishes and goals. Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery in Orlando, FL, offers BBL at the recommendation of Dr. Armando Soto as an advanced therapy proven to help rejuvenate our patients' skin. We utilize the BBL™ and BBL HERO platforms by Sciton® to ensure each treatment is fast and provides the highest quality results.
"Bridget and Amanda made a super weird and uncomfortable procedure quite easy! I was really nervous, but their calming manner and conversation relaxed me. The Geneveve treatment was completely painless and there was no down time. My significant other thoroughly enjoys the results as well."- K.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 26, 2017
"Amazing Doctor - I am beyond impressed with my results thus far - Dr. Soto and his staff are the absolute best ESPECIALLY Nurse Leinny- she is a God sent! She's so patient and her and Dr. Soto have amazing bed side manners. I had 3 consultations prior to him and he was the most informative by far. He was patient during our consult, explained EVERYTHING and I was not pressured in to booking/finalizing my surgery even though I did call back in and schedule my..."- B. / RealSelf / Mar 30, 2021
"Brest Augmentation - AMAZING!! - I have had small boobs my whole life (until now) and it always made me self conscious.. I always told myself when I am financially stable I’m going to do something about it. I was referred from a friend who’s starting point was similar to mine so I booked a consultation. I had originally planned to check out multiple facilities but when I visited Dr Sotos office the staff was amazing and Dr Soto was so genuine. I asked him “what cup size do you recommend” and he simply said..I will make them look beautiful and you find whatever bra fits. I loved that. I showed him some photos the day of the procedure and asked that he make them as big as possible but still natural and fitting for my body type. Which is exactly what I got!!! I’m in love and I have absolutely no regrets. Now I’m 5 months post op and my scars are almost non existent and they look natural!! Thank you so much Dr Soto!"- R. / RealSelf / Dec 11, 2020

"So Happy I Had the Procedure - It has been 2 months since my procedure. Amy at Dr. Soto’s Office in Orlando, Fl did the procedure and she was absolutely amazing. She injected my armpits to numb them and the procedure took about 15 minutes each arm. She set the machine to level 5, which was the highest. I applied ice for the next 24-48 hours to help with the swelling. It was uncomfortable the day off due to the swelling but very little pain as I was still numb. The next day it felt like a had a terrible sunburn in my armpits and was pretty uncomfortable but by day 3-4 the pain was pretty much gone. Swelling remained for the next week and I did get some lumps that eventually went away. About 2 weeks in I went through the purging stage which lasted 1-2 weeks. Fast forwarding to now, 2 months later, I do not wear deodorant 99% of the time. The 1% of the time to do apply very little to my right armpit as I still develop a very mild odor on a hot day. Additionally I’ve notice my armpit hair is pretty much gone. I’m super happy with the results and will decide ext summer if I want to have a second procedure done."- L. / RealSelf / Oct 20, 2020
Is Broadband Light Therapy Right for Me?
A great candidate for BBL is anyone dealing with hyperpigmentation or heavily textured skin. These conditions may be due to sun damage, damaged capillaries, rosacea, or acne. BBL can also help to make the skin appear more youthful by igniting the regeneration of collagen. Depending on the type of modality and filter used for the treatment, BBL can be utilized as a therapy and/or daily maintenance for an array of skin issues. Prior to undergoing treatment, we will discuss how BBL technology can help achieve your aesthetic goals.
How is Broadband Light Therapy Performed?
After customizing the appropriate treatment plan, the settings of the BBL or BBL HERO system will be adjusted to fit the needs of your skin. Before beginning the procedure, your eyes will be covered to protect them from the light of the laser. We will then lightly pass the laser over your skin while concentrating on the treatment locations. The amount of time necessary for your procedure will change, depending upon the issue being treated and if any other treatments were completed during the BBL procedure. BBL procedures can typically be finished in about an hour or less.
What to Expect After Broadband Light Therapy
Following the therapy, a soothing cream will be smoothed onto your skin. Dr. Soto will also provide post-treatment care directions and may advise reducing your sun exposure. Otherwise, patients are usually able to return to their regular daily routine. Outcomes from BBL can be noticed in 2 – 6 weeks following the first treatment, but optimal results will generally be observed after repeat BBL sessions. Dr. Soto will suggest the recommended number of procedures to receive your preferred outcome.
