BBL- SCITON Broadband Light (BBL™)
BroadBand Light (BBL)™ Phototherapy by Sciton® is a phototherapy procedure, also known as Forever Young BBL™ and photofacials. It allows us to precisely treat brown and red pigmentation caused by sun damage and aging skin. This treatment can reduce the flushing of rosacea and it can be used on the face, neck, chest and hands.
This BBL treatment will help restore your skin’s natural beauty, giving you younger, brighter looking skin. Patients must avoid direct sun exposure for 14 days after receiving this treatment.
What to Expect During Your BBL Treatment
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a warm or “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your BBL procedure may take a few minutes to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. Your Aesthetician will discuss all of your options with you.
The BBL treatment is gentle, noninvasive and safe. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, but your Aesthetician may choose to use it on more sensitive areas.
After Your BBL Treatment
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. Pigmented lesions will darken and gradually flake off and fade over the next 7-10 days. Often your treated skin will feel smoother, fine lines and pores begin to be less noticeable, and sun spots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your skin’s condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated.
We will provide you with detailed information about the post treatment care and results.
Since this is a noninvasive and gentle procedure, there is virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of your activities immediately.
It is important to follow your clinician’s instructions. You may be given some skin care products and instructions. If you must go outdoors, it is recommended that you cover your treated skin and use a sunscreen with at least an SPF 30.
