BBL (Broad Band Light/Photofacial)
You might know this type of treatment as Photo facial, Fotofacial, or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). Essentially all these therapies use the same Light principals to improve the appearance of photo-aged skin, remove age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called Photo Rejuvenation for face and body.
BBLTherapy helps restore a more youthful appearance with virtually no patient downtime. It is a new technology (last 10 years) that restores a smooth even-toned surface to your face, hands and chest. Today’s active lifestyle doesn’t leave much time for recovery from a cosmetic procedure, which is why this therapy is one of the single best technologies for overall skin improvement. Sciton BBL can treat a wide variety of skin conditions:
- sun damage
- broken capillaries
- brown spots
- age spots
- sun-induced freckles on the hands, chest, and face
- broken capillaries around the nose
In the weeks after treatment, the shattered melanin particles are eliminated. Little or no trace of the initial lesion remains. The treated vessels deeper within the epidermis are reabsorbed by the body in much the same way.
