Am I A Candidate For BroadBand Light Therapy?

A great candidate for BBL is anyone dealing with hyperpigmentation or unevenly textured skin. These conditions could be caused by sun damage, damaged capillaries, rosacea, or acne. BBL also helps to make your skin seem more youthful by promoting the production of collagen. By varying the type of filter and modality used, BBL could be utilized as a therapy and/or maintenance regimen for a wide array of skin conditions. Prior to undergoing treatment, we will explain how BBL technology might help achieve your cosmetic goals.

What To Expect with BBL

BBL can address hyperpigmentation, sun damage, redness, fine lines, broken blood vessels, and wrinkles. The treatment boosts collagen regeneration to help your skin appear more even and youthful. After our team creates your customized treatment plan, the settings of the BBL system will be adjusted to fit your needs. Before starting the treatment, your eyes will be covered to protect them from the light of the laser. We will then softly pass the laser over your skin while focusing on the problem areas. The treatment is typically performed within an hour or less, depending on the issue being addressed. Following your session, a soothing cream will be applied to your skin, and we'll supply any home-based care directions. Results from BBL can be noticed within 2 – 6 weeks of the first treatment, but we'll let you know how many follow-up sessions are recommended to achieve your best outcomes.

BroadBand Light Therapy FAQ

How many treatments will I need?
The number of BBL treatments you may need can be discussed during your consultation once your skin has been assessed. Generally, patients achieve their skin goals after three sessions. Although, if you have serious pigmentation, sun damage, or discoloration, you may require more sessions. In your initial consultation, we will consider your goals and create your custom treatment plan. Your sessions will be spaced about 3 – 4 weeks apart to allow your skin to recover.

What areas can be treated with BBL?
Most areas of skin can be treated with BBL, although the most popular areas are the face, chest, neck, hands, shoulders, and back. These are the areas that tend to show the most damage since they're frequently exposed to the sun. The face and hands are also the first places to be affected by natural aging and lifestyle, so treating these areas may help rejuvenate your overall appearance.

How is BBL different from other lasers?
Sciton's innovative BroadBand Light is a high-powered IPL (intense pulsed light) skin treatment. The dual lamps and wide range of energy wavelengths allow our team to personalize your treatment to match your skin goals. With different energies, BBL can improve brown and red lesions, as well as dark and light spots, without harming the areas of skin and tissue nearby. Safe and effective, BBL can reveal a rejuvenated complexion in less time compared to many other laser skin treatments.
