13 07 face laser skin treatment broad band lightDescription: Also known as BBL, this photorejuvenation treatment reduces the appearance of sun-damaged skin by using a super bright light to absorb dark patches. It makes skin look more even-toned, diminishes redness and can decrease pore size.

How it’s done: Cool gel is applied to the face beforehand to minimize the heat of the laser, which feels like mildly uncomfortable stings. A session is usually 30 minutes, and most people need five or six treatments, placed a few weeks apart.

Complications: Red, blotchy skin can occur.

Recovery: It’s fine to resume normal activities following treatment, though your face may be a bit sore.

Cost: $150 to $300 per session.
