Sciton® BBL Treatment

What is the Sciton® BBL® Treatment?

Sciton® BBL® is a broadband light therapy designed to target unwanted pigmentation and uneven skin texture for a more youthful appearance. Broadband light (BBL) is the world’s most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) device available. It uses short blasts of strong light to gently heat the uppermost layers of your skin, stimulating collagen production to restore a more even complexion. 

This treatment can be performed on almost all parts of the body but is most commonly used on the face, neck, chest, and hands. It is ideal for targeting: 

  • Acne scarring. 
  • Sun damage. 
  • Skin tightening. 
  • Pigmented lesions. 
  • Vascular lesions. 
  • Unwanted hair.

Who Can Benefit from the Sciton® BBL® Treatment?

Individuals who are looking to improve the overall texture and tone of their skin can often benefit from Sciton® BBL® treatments. Generally, BBL treatments work best on lighter skin tones, though some darker tones may be able to benefit as well. In order to determine if this treatment is right for you, contact our office to schedule a consultation. 

The Sciton® BBL® Treatment Procedure

During your BBL® treatment, you will be asked to wear protective eyewear to protect your eyes from the laser light. Then, the special Sciton® BBL® handpiece will be passed across the appropriate areas, delivering high-powered energy to the skin. Most people describe this feeling like a rubber band snap, though it should not be overly uncomfortable. We will also apply cooling technology to ensure that your treatment experience is enjoyable.

Sciton® BBL® Treatment Results

There is no downtime required following your Sciton® BBL® treatment since it is noninvasive. You may experience temporary redness and swelling, which should fade within the next few days. We will provide you with specific aftercare instructions to ensure that your skin heals properly for the best results. Over the next few weeks, you will notice your skin becoming smoother and more evenly toned. The number of treatments that are right for you will depend on your desired results. However, the best results are usually seen after 3-6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart.
