BBL vs IPL: what’s the difference?

Both BBL (BroadBand Light) and IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments have become hugely popular over the past few years – but what’s the difference?

IPL heats the upper layers of the skin to help improve skin texture and tone, including for hyperpigmentation and acne. 

BBL is similar, however we believe it is the more powerful sister of IPL – and we are proud to therefore have BBL services available to patients with The Laser Fix, in collaboration with Dermoperfection, Birmingham’s leading medical skin and cosmetic clinic.

Both BBL and IPL are non-invasive, providing effective results on the face, neck, shoulders, chest and hands, with effects visible for up to a year!

However, BBL reaches further down into the skin compared to IPL, stimulating collagen production and skin repair, as well as enhancing effectiveness when treating your concerns in the long-term.

BBL is also even more customisable than IPL, combining perfectly with other Sciton laser treatments, including the amazing Moxi facial. The Laser Fix are Birmingham’s exclusive specialists in this ultimate rejuvenation combination. 

Plus, BBL is able to treat even more concerns than IPL; on top of treating sun damage, scarring, redness and rosacea, similarly to IPL, BBL also tackles unwanted freckles, birthmarks, sagging skin, fine lines, visible blood cells, spider veins and more, whilst evening out skin tone too.

BBL has even become a firm favourite with celebrities – Kim Kardashian said: “I just really love the results!” and that “it didn’t hurt at all.”

So, if you want to revitalise your skin inside and out, book your consultation to try BBL with The Laser Fix, in partnership with Dermoperfection.
