BROADBAND LIGHT THERAPY
Addressing your most common skin concerns with the power of light.
Broadband Light Therapy (BBL) by Sciton Lasers sets a new standard in treating skin conditions associated with aging, acne, loss of firmness,
and sun damage.
BBL ISN'T YOUR AVERAGE IPL TREATMENT
BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device on the market. It sets new standards in treating skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles, and sun damage.
The light energy delivered by BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, making it clearer, smoother, vibrant and younger looking.
BENEFITS OF BBL
BBL energy allows us to treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your nurse providers treatment plan will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results. BBL has a solutions for your skin concerns:
Freckles and age spots
Small blood vessels and rosacea
Loss of firmness
See different BBL treatments below.
Worried your freckles, age spots or rosacea make you look less radiant and older? With BBL™ they will be a thing of the past!
The light energy delivered by BBL will stimulate cells to regenerate and typically with the first treatment you will start to see smoother, more even and vibrant skin. The photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces age and sun spots. Your skin will feel smoother, fine lines and pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade.

Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and your nurse provider will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your nurse provider may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment and provide optimal results.
Q: How long the treatment take?
A: It can take as little as 45 minutes, depending on the area you are looking to treat, as well as the treatment you are receiving. Treatment time varies from patient to patient.
Q: What will happen during the procedure?
A: We'll apply a topical numbing agent to reduce sensation about 30 minutes prior to your appointment. Your eyes will be protected with safety shields/glasses. You will feel a warm “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure time will vary depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. Your nurse provider will discuss all of your options with you including the benefits, risks and what to expect.
During the treatment and after the treatment, we utilize a Zimmer Cryotherapy cooling machine. The Zimmer machine is intended to minimize discomfort and thermal injury during laser treatments. Unlike other cooling methods, such as contact cooling, cryogen spray or ice packs, the Zimmer machine can cool the epidermis during and after the laser energy has been applied, without interfering with the laser beam.
You may also elect to add ProNox Nitrous Oxide for maximum comfort. Please let your nurse provider know when scheduling your appointment if this is something you are interested in.
Q: What should I expect after the treatment?
A: You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some spots, you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Results depend on your skin type, the number of treatments, and the area treated. Your nurse provider will provide you with complete information about the post treatment care and results.
Q: How long will it take to recover?
A: This is a non-invasive and typically gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, and resume most of your activities immediately. If your skin is sensitive, you may experience slight swelling post procedure which is expected and normal. Taking over the counter histamines can help reduce any swelling that may occur.
Q: What aftercare do I need?
A: It is important to follow your nurse providers instructions. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light, and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your skin and use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
