Sciton Broad Band Light (BBL™)
BBL is Sciton’s trademarked name for their IPL (Intensed Pulsed Light) machine which is far more powerful and controllable than previous generations of IPL devices. Many of our patients report that it delivers the most effective photofacial treatment; it can improve many skin imperfections, with little to no downtime.
What conditions can be treated with BBL?
Some of the most bothersome skin issues many Guelph and area residents face are the brown age spots, broken capillaries, sallow tone and fine wrinkles that result after years of sun exposure. Many others are also troubled by acne or the flushing and redness of rosacea.
Broad Band Light (BBL) is the name for the next generation of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment. When performed with the more powerful Sciton system, BBL is one of the most exciting therapies that can help these concerns. The treatment can dramatically even skin color, fading away browns and reds and improving fine wrinkles and tone. Exciting new research at Stanford has found that regular Sciton BBL treatments actually improve DNA damage in deeper layers of skin, slowing the changes of aging and causing skin to behave and look as it did when it was younger.
