Sciton Forever Young BBL/BBL Hero
BroadBand Light (BBL) is an IPL (Intense Pulse Light) device by Sciton. This device uses light energy to improve overall skin tone and clarity. The light energy will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking.
BBL energy allows us to precisely treat many skin conditions, such as: pigmented lesions (e.g., freckles, age spots or sun spots), vascularity (small blood vessels, rosacea, or flushing), acne, skin firmness, uneven skin texture, and unwanted hair. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results.
BBL HERO or BroadBand Light with High Energy Rapid Output, is a new and improved IPL device by Sciton. It is four times faster, three times more powerful, and offers twice as much cooling. With this new device, patients will see better and faster results with minimal discomfort.
At our office we offer Forever Young BBL+ and ForeverBody, which is Sciton’s BBL HERO system for the face and body. These treatments provide a quick and comfortable way to rid your face and body of unwanted pigmentation and improve texture of the skin. With BBL HERO, we can address multiple areas of concern in a short treatment session with little to no discomfort. Any area of your body can be treated. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.
BBL HERO is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of your activities immediately. During the treatment, the device flashes specialized light as it is quickly moved across the treatment area. Each flash of light produces a feeling of warmth, but is easily tolerated without the need for topical anesthetic. The pigment is initially darkened, helping you know that you had 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.
Most patients see results in 2-4 weeks; however, this will depend on the individual and the area being treated. It is important that you wear a physical sunscreen and limit your sun exposure 2 weeks before and after your treatment. Patients can see results from a single treatment. However, the number of treatments will depend on the severity of your pigmentation. A typical patient requires two to four treatments.
