What Is BBL Laser Skin Treatment?

Overview of Laser Skin Treatments

Lasers were first produced in the 1960s. Since then, scientists and doctors have been applying this invention to deal with certain health issues, including skin problems. Thanks to the latest technology advances, laser treatments have become safer and more effective, which leads to more applications in dermatologic areas. In general, there are 2 main types of laser skin treatments:

– Ablative laser treatments use energy to heat the dermis, the skin’s deeper layer and remove the epidermis, the skin’s outermost layer. It encourages the growth of collagen and makes the skin look firmer and smoother.

– Non-ablative laser treatments target different skin levels with different wavelengths of light to stimulate the growth of collagen. [1]
