Skin problems like skin laxity, dark spots, redness, or unwanted facial hair affect a large percentage of people. In the past, treatments for these issues were temporary, painful, or had inconsistent results. The Sciton BBL is an innovative form of light therapy that targets the signs of aging, sun damage, and other skin problems, resulting in a refreshed, rejuvenated look. BBL stands for “broadband light,” and is a noninvasive procedure that can help bring back your youthful skin.
How Does BBL Work?
Bright, clear, smooth skin is within reach with BBL treatment! BBL utilizes pulsing broadband light to offer photorejuvenation! Photothermal energy is also used to target veins and blood vessels and minimize their appearance in the skin.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Typically patients will expect to have 3 to 5 treatments, but this number can vary depending on each patient’s skin needs. And in addition, there is very little downtime associated with the procedure.
Will I See Good Results?
The benefits to Sciton BBL treatment are proven in scientific studies. A Stanford University study reveals that treatments with BBL can alter the expression of genes associated with aging. In fact, after treatment, cells more closely resemble the cells of younger skin. Results will vary by patient, but we have seen phenomenal results with our patients and believe in this treatment’s ability to help our patient’s achieve their skin goals!
Is There Downtime?
Often, you can return immediately to your daily routine without any severe side effects. Some note a sunburn-like feeling after the treatment, but ice packs, and aloe vera can relieve any discomfort.
