About IPL

If you struggle with how your facial skin looks because of fine lines, sun damage, or dark spots, we can offer you a skin analysis at our Houston, TX office to see if you qualify for IPL or Forever Young BBL. IPL is an intense pulsed light photofacial, a skin rejuvenation treatment for adult men and women with wrinkles and hyperpigmentation issues within their skin. Forever Young BBL is a very similar procedure that is even gentler than the already noninvasive IPL but is equally effective and will produce great results. The treatments are known to work best on patients with light skin and who do not tan well. Using light, our innovative IPL and/or Forever Young BBL technologies will send intense wavelengths of light to damage the skin, just enough to ignite the skin regeneration process and boost collagen production. Do you need expert advice for Photofacial in Houston, TX? Visit here to book an appointment. As the skin heals itself, you will see a healthier complexion, more even tone, and less dark spots. We are here to assist you if you are looking for photofacial treatment in Houston, TX. Feel free to contact us to schedule a consult. At Nuveau Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Edward Lee would like to offer you a consultation to see whether IPL or BBL is the right rejuvenation treatment for your skin tone and texture.

Forever Young BBL

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.

Ideal Candidates

Candidates for IPL or BBL may have a combination of concerns with their skin. The procedures work wonders with sun-damaged skin, splotchy red facial skin, visible facial blood vessels, freckles, hyperpigmentation spots, enlarged pores, and fine lines and wrinkles. The treatments work deep within the layers of your skin to improve many of your concerns (especially sun spots and brown lesions) with little or no downtime. We can assess your skin to see if you are a candidate for IPL or BBL at a private consultation.

Procedure Techniques

IPL and BBL are performed inside our office during a short 20-minute visit. We will take you into our minor procedures room to perform your treatment and give you protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the light energy. Next, we will cleanse your face, dry it, and apply a cooling gel to the treatment area. Both IPL and Forever Young BBL are administered with handheld applicators that the technician will pass over your treatment areas at the wavelengths needed for treatment (some areas will require more than other areas). Some patients report that the treatments do not hurt while others say there is a slight stinging sensation. Once the treatment is over, your skin will be pink. Women may want to reapply their makeup to cover up the rosiness of their skin. There may also be some swelling.

What to Expect

There is no downtime associated with IPL or BBL. You will leave your appointment a little pink and swollen, but this will decrease as the day continues. We advise patients to keep a healing ointment on the skin's surface to help with irritation. It also helps to take an anti-inflammatory medication to help reduce swelling. Over the course of several days, the sun damage and other irregularities that rested under the skin will come to the surface and then begin to flake off. You may not see the best results from the first session, but your skin will gradually improve over time with several sessions. Ideally, we recommend approximately 3 – 6 treatments spaced monthly. It's very important to keep your skin protected from the sun at all times after receiving an IPL or BBL treatment.

Get Back your Glow

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