What is Broad Band Light (BBL™)?

BBL and IPL and photofacial are three terms for a class of device that uses a flash lamp to produce light energy of many wavelengths at the same time. Just like lasers, different devices offer a wide range of power outputs. High-energy treatments create laser-like effects. BBL is Sciton’s trademarked name for their IPL machine which is far more powerful and controllable than previous generation IPL devices.

Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results. Any area of your body can be treated.

How does BBL work?

The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen foundation, leading to increased skin firmness. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.

How many treatments will I need?

Best results usually require a series of 6-8 treatments, depending on the hair being treated.

How long will it take to recover?

This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are immediately able to return to work and resume most activities.
