What Is BBL™ (Broadband Light)?

BBL™ or Broadband Light is an innovative technology that targets many skin conditions, including acne, aging, and sun damage. With this technology, we can tailor your treatment to match your specific skin type and desired results.

Our practice offers both Forever Young BBL™, which helps target unwanted brown and red areas and Forever Clear BBL™, which targets acne. With BBL™ treatment, you no longer have to settle for skin that leaves you self-conscious, but now you can seek the skin of your dreams.

How Does BBL™ Work to Improve Skin?

BBL™, also known as a photo facial, delivers light energy that gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbs into the targeted areas, stimulating your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. As we get older, our body’s ability to produce collagen decreases, and lower collagen levels begin to lead to fine lines and wrinkles and less elasticity in our skin.

By encouraging collagen to regenerate, your skin will start to restore its natural beauty. Your skin will begin to appear smoother, vibrant, and younger-looking. The photothermal energy helps to remove the fine vessels responsible for causing redness and unwanted pigmented spots.

Ideal Candidates for BBL™ Laser Treatment

If you are experiencing any of the following skin conditions, BBL™ treatment is right for you:

  • Acne
  • Unwanted freckles or age spots (pigmented lesions)
  • Small blood vessels (vascular lesions)
  • Loss of Skin Firmness
  • Uneven skin texture

Recovery after BBL™ Laser Treatment

BBL™ is both a noninvasive and gentle photo facial with virtually no downtime. Our patients can generally return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of their activities immediately.

You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For brown spots, you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage.

Patient Review

She did an outstanding job explaining every step and what to expect after the procedure! I'm looking forward to my upcoming appointments!!! Thank you for such great service!"

Forever Young BBL™ Laser Treatment

Forever Young BBL™ addresses our most common patient skin concerns, such as sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and red vessels in a non-invasion fashion.

This photo facial improves the underlying layers of the patient’s skin where we see the most aging occur. The Forever Young BBL™ treatment stimulates your body’s natural ability to regenerate healthy, new skin.

Ideal Candidates for Forever Young BBL™?

Almost all individuals are ideal candidates for the Forever Young BBL™ treatment since the technology is customizable for all skin types. Dark skinned individuals cannot be treated typically due to the fact that these wavelengths of light see color and can therefore damage and scar normal, darker skin tones.

What Skin Concerns can Forever Young BBL™ Treat?

With this treatment, we address the following aesthetic skin concerns, including:

  • Acne
  • Age Spots
  • Sun Spots
  • Fine Lines
  • Rosacea
  • Skin Firmness
  • Skin Elasticity and Tone

How Does Forever Young BBL™ Work?

Forever Young BBL™ system can target both the top and lower layers of your skin. This infrared invisible light technology provides visible complexion improvements to the top layers of skin while also targeting the lower dermis to revitalize old skin cells at the molecular level.

Unlike older lasers, this technology can treat virtually any area on the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. Our staff will tailor a series of treatments to your desired results, leaving you with significant age-defying results and a clear and more even skin tone. Regular and ongoing treatments over the years can stop the normal aging process.

  • Complete body treatment in minutes. NO downtime.
  • Comfortable treatment, well-tolerated without anesthetic cream
  • SIMPLE post-care = stay out of the sun!
  • RESULTS in 2-4 weeks

How does it work?

The BBL HERO ForeverBody treatment from Sciton uses intense pulsed light to target the pigment of the skin. Moving quickly across the treatment area, we flash specific wavelengths of light into the skin. The treated brown and red pigment in your skin initially darkens, which indicates an optimal treatment. Within the next several days, your body’s natural healing process will remove the pigmented cells and replace them with fresh, new, undamaged cells.

How comfortable is the treatment?

Each flash of the light produces a feeling of warmth. Patients easily tolerate the experience without needing numbing cream.

How long does it take to see results?

Results vary depending on the individual, the area treated, and the settings used. However, most patients see results in 1-4 weeks.

What is the post-care?

You must wear a physical barrier sunscreen and limit your sun exposure after your treatment. Failure to protect your skin from further exposure will result in the need for future treatments.

How many treatments will I need?

You will see results from a single treatment. However, the number of treatments will depend on the severity of your pigmentation concerns. A typical patient requires a minimum of three to five treatments for optimal results.
