Frequently Asked BBL ULTRA Peel Questions
The number of treatments depends on your skin’s condition and desired results. Buckingham Center’s clinical staff can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may choose to combine BBL ULTRA PEEL with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
BBL ULTRA PEEL is a very tolerable treatment that requires, at most, a topical anesthetic which is applied 45 minutes to 1 hour prior to treatment.
After the treatment pigmented spots will turn dark and you will experience mild redness and warmth, similar to a sunburn-like sensation.
Depending on the depth of treatment, most patients feel comfortable enough to return to work within a couple of days- an attribute that has given rise to the nickname “the weekend peel”. Typically, at day 2 skin will begin to peel. Peeling usually lasts about 2-3 days. Redness may persist up to seven days and can be covered by make-up.
You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you always use some level of solar protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
Most patients notice improvement in tone, texture and color evenness once the skin heals in approximately one week. Nice results can be obtained in just one treatment, however the number of treatments needed may vary from patient to patient.
