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.

"I had such a wonderful experience at Nouveau Plastic Surgery and Med Spa!! The staff is beyond spectacular. From the hands on (and handsome ladies/ gentlemen) owners Randy Rakes and Dr. Edward Lee to the nurse, injectors and Esthetician's (Alonah rocks!!).... Everyone is very informative, well trained, kind, knowledgeable, and on point. I've never felt in more capable and experienced hands. They have all the newest and greatest technology to aid in skin rejuvenation. And if you need a little help beyond that (which I did), Dr. Lee is one of the absolute best plastic surgeons in town. He is meticulous in his art. I would trust him with any procedure I decide to have done in the future and I feel completely confident in recommending him to any of my friends, family, or acquaintances. If you're looking for a wonderful med spa, Nouveau Plastic Surgery and Medspa is hands-down one of the best I've ever been to. Trust me! You'll love it there! It's amazing!!"- P.G. / Yelp / Aug 01, 2018
"Marty does brilliant work with injectables. She makes a plan, takes her time. She is very experienced and knowledgeable. I was comfortable with her and very impressed with the results. I had natural, but noticeable changes and Marty made suggestions no one else had. :)"- C.G. / Yelp / May 03, 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.

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