Reduce the appearance of pigmentation while rejuvenating your skin. Introducing BBL – a new laser at Victoria Park MediSpa Winnipeg!
BBL (BroadBand Light) is an advanced IPL photorejuvenation treatment that uses broadband light to rejuvenate skin and reduce pigmentation. Studies have shown1 that regular treatment with BBL caused patients to look ten years younger than their average age.
BBL emits short bursts of high-intensity light to penetrate just below the skin’s surface, targeting either the melanin that makes up brown spots or the blood vessels that create broken capillaries. After the skin’s collagen and elastin are boosted, you are left with an even and glowing skin tone*.

How long does a treatment last?
Forever Young BBL has benefits for both pigmentation and skin rejuvenation with improved tone, brightness, clarity and reduction of fine lines. As the skin naturally ages, many of our clients keep a maintenance regime over the year for skin rejuvenation benefits. For pigmentation, results can be permanent if clients avoid sun exposure or are not susceptible to pigmentation. Some pigmentation clients also return for maintenance treatment every year or two.
What is the difference between BBL and IPL?
BBL is a more advanced version of the popular Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment.
