The Beauty of Cosmetic Lasers & Light Therapy: BBL & Halo Explained

The way we look can go hand in hand with the way we feel and plays a significant role in our daily lives — which is why many are seeking innovative ways to enhance their beauty and address skin concerns. Cosmetic lasers and light therapy have emerged as powerful and effective solutions for various skin issues. Here we'll delve into popular cosmetic skin treatments: BroadBand Light (BBL) and Halo, providing you with valuable insights to make informed decisions about your skincare journey. 

What Are Cosmetic Lasers? 

Lasers emit high-energy light and use specific wavelengths of light to treat specific skin conditions.

What Can Cosmetic Lasers and BroadBand Light (BBL) Do For Your Skin? 

Cosmetic lasers and light therapies are non-invasive procedures that can improve and dramatically reduce skin conditions.

With all this in mind, let’s dive into the most popular laser and light therapies at OVME studios: BroadBand Light (BBL) and Halo.

BroadBand Light (BBL) 

BroadBand Light, or BBL, uses light therapy to target a wide range of skin imperfections, such as sunspots, redness, and small veins. The light energy delivered to the skin is absorbed by pigmented cells, causing them to break down and gradually be eliminated by the body. This treatment also stimulates collagen production, which improves overall skin texture and reduces fine lines. 

What is BroadBand Light (BBL) good for? 

BBL is highly effective for treating sun-damaged skin, reducing redness associated with rosacea, and minimizing the appearance of age spots and freckles. It can also improve overall skin tone and reduce unwanted hair. 

Recovery: BBL typically involves minimal downtime, allowing you to resume your daily activities immediately after treatment. You may experience some redness or mild swelling, which usually subsides within a day or two. 

Which is better – BBL or IPL? 

BBL — no question. This technology delivers intense light for more effective and precise results on skin. 


Halo is a revolutionary hybrid fractional laser that combines the benefits of both ablative and non-ablative lasers. It's designed to address a wide range of skin concerns, from texture and tone to pigmentation issues.  

What is Halo Laser Good For? 

Halo uses a dual-wavelength laser to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin's surface while leaving surrounding tissue untouched. This stimulates collagen production and triggers the body's natural healing process, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin. 

Halo is a versatile treatment that can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, enlarged pores, pigmentation, and uneven skin tone. 

Recovery: Recovery time varies depending on the intensity of the treatment, but downtime is generally minimal. You may experience some redness and peeling for a few days, after which you'll notice a significant improvement in your skin's texture and tone.
