BBL Photofacials

There’s no easier, more effective way to achieve brighter, younger looking and more evenly toned skin than with revitalizing BBL™ photofacials. BBL, which stands for broadband light, is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that affords dramatic improvements to the appearance of your skin with no downtime. BBL photofacials are considered the gold standard for improving a wide range of pigmentation concerns, including:

  • Freckles 
  • Age Spots 
  • Sun Spots 
  • Small Veins 
  • Redness Rosacea

Forever Young BBL™


BBL photofacials have been clinically proven to reveal smoother, dramatically younger looking skin when administered periodically over the long term. A retrospective study at Stanford University revealed that people who received BBL photofacials looked at least ten years younger over time than their actual age. For this reason, we recommend incorporating BBL photofacials into your seasonal skin care regimen. 


Frequently Asked Questions about BBL Photofacials in Anderson, Indiana at Swofford Dermatology Center


What happens during a BBL photofacial?

After washing your face to remove any makeup or skin care products, we will gently coat your treatment areas with a clear gel that helps your skin absorb the light energy. We will then apply the BBL light to your areas of concern, taking special care to evenly distribute treatment and applying extra passes to areas in need of more intense care.


Is a photofacial painful?

BBL photofacials are compared to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against your skin. This sensation can be uncomfortable, depending on the intensity of your treatment, but immediately dissipates once the treatment is over. There is no need for a topical anesthetic with BBL photofacials, and there should be no lingering discomfort after your treatment.


What are the side effects of BBL photofacials?

You may experience some redness, which quickly fades in the hours after your treatment. Because BBL photofacials are non-invasive, you’ll be able to reapply makeup before leaving our office, if you so desire. 

Is there any downtime with BBL photofacials?

No. A BBL photofacial is a non-invasive treatment that requires no downtime, so you can immediately resume your regular schedule following your photofacial session.


How long does a photofacial take?

Considered a “lunch time” treatment, BBL photofacials can be administered in 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of your treatment areas.

Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Hair Removal in Anderson, IN at Swofford Dermatology Center

How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?


Laser hair removal works by disabling hair follicles with laser energy. However, the laser only works on hair follicles that are in the active growing phase. Because hair is never consistently active, it can take multiple treatments over a period of months to disable every targeted follicle and achieve your desired result. For this reason, we recommend scheduling a series of at least five treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Is there any downtime with laser hair removal? No. This non-invasive treatment disables targeted hair follicles without harming the surrounding skin, making it a no-downtime treatment.


When will I start noticing improvements?

Once your hair follicles are disabled, it can take a few weeks for the hairs to fall out of the follicles. Patients often notice improvements within the first month, but this varies depending on the extent of hair growth. 


Are there any side effects with laser hair removal?

You may experience redness at the treatment sites, but this will resolve quickly on its own in the hours after treatment.


What can I do to prepare for my laser hair removal treatment?

Since laser hair removal needs the root of your hair to work effectively, it’s vital to stop plucking or waxing for at least a month or longer before your treatment. Shaving is fine because it does not remove the root of your hair. 

Is laser hair removal right for me?

Laser hair removal works on many types and shades of skin, so there’s a high chance it’s appropriate for you. When can help you determine if laser hair removal is a good fit during your personal consultation.
