What is BBL?
With outstanding, advanced technology, there’s a terrific new way to fight the signs of aging on the face, neck, and hands by penetrating the deepest layers of the skin. Broadband light treatments (known as BBL), use light energy that is sent deep into the skin so varying wavelengths can effectively promote new skin growth and regeneration. As the skin regenerates itself following the treatment, the result will be younger-looking, healthier, rejuvenated skin. Nuveau Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics, directed by trusted plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Lee, offers BBL to Houston area patients seeking to reverse the signs of sun damage and maintain a healthy, clearer complexion.
Forever Young BBL
Contrary to popular belief, the appearance of sun-damaged skin cannot be reversed at the surface. The Forever Young BBL uses the science of gene expression to target the deep layers under the skin's surface to produce younger-looking, smoother skin. As new cells form under the skin, the genes within these cells are associated with the aging process. When BBL targets these cells using light energy, the cells are genetically transformed, which can in turn transform the skin. BBL helps to diminish the fine lines and wrinkles, as well as pigmentation, sun spots, and other skin irregularities caused by both the sun and aging.
BBL is great for anyone who is concerned about their aged skin and who wants to look younger. This FDA-approved procedure is noninvasive and works well on all areas of the face to target lines and wrinkles. Patients with pigmentation issues, sun-damaged skin, large pores, or freckles are also good candidates for this treatment. BBL works best on light-skinned individuals who typically do not tan.
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017
"Dr. Lee performed successful trigger thumb surgeries (right & left) for my daughter (7 yo). I was very nervous about my dtr needing surgery & kept delaying it until I found him. I sought 2nd opinions, but after meeting Dr. Lee in consultation, I knew he was the right surgeon. He explained every detail calmly & answered all my questions. He is knowledgeable & highly skilled. My dtr had no complications or infections; she recovered quickly. Today, she has perfectly working thumbs, hardly any scar!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Apr 17, 2018
"I went today for my first facial with Teta. A friend had referred me so I decided to see what it was all about. When I arrived I was greeted immediately by 3 friendly faces. They welcomed me in and offered me a beverage. So far so good! First class service! Shortly after I began my facial not knowing really what to expect. Teta was very knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable. I left feeling rejuvenated and fresh faced! This was a great experience and I have already booked my next appointment! I feel good about my skin :) Thank you Teta and Nuveau for a first class experience from start to finish! I would definitely recommend!"- B.S. / Yelp / Apr 04, 2018

During the Procedure
Prior to undergoing BBL, we will give our patients protective eyewear to prevent any damage from the light source. A cooling gel will be applied to the treatment area and the aesthetician will glide the handheld light source over the area. Depending on what is being treated and the severity of the condition, varying strengths of wavelengths will be chosen to penetrate the skin in order to reach deep levels of the skin. Most patients report feeling little to no pain, but just slight discomfort that resembles a rubber band snap.
After the Procedure
It takes several days for patients to see their results. Immediately following the procedure, patients will notice some redness and swelling on the face, as well as splotchy, patchy areas of darker colored skin that generally subsides in a couple of days. It is advised to avoid strenuous activities such as exercise during the initial healing process. To achieve best results, a series of sessions are usually recommended spaced a few weeks apart.

Turn Back the Hands of Time
Since skin can’t effectively be treated at the surface, it’s time to go deeper with BBL to produce younger-looking, healthier skin.
