Sciton BBL

Broad Band Light (BBL) is the Sciton version of IPL technology which utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver “Photo Facial” therapy.


How it works?

By selecting the appropriate wavelength band filter, photo-thermal energy will target and eliminate broad range of skin conditions caused by aging and sun exposure including various pigmented lesions and vascular imperfection which inevitably occurs with aging. In addition, the heat absorbed by the targeted areas will to a degree, help stimulate your skin to generate new collagen resulting in a clearer skin that looks younger and firmer.

The greatest advantage of this “Photo Facial” technology lies with versatility of treating both the pigmentary and vascular imperfections simultaneously. The disadvantage lies with its versatile effect being generally limited to conditions of the upper layer of your skin, thus it’s greatest effect on skin conditions caused by sun exposure and aging. As long as you don’t have past history of melasma or tendency for severe post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation, BBL represents a sound first line therapy for most patients presenting with Fitzpatrick type I to IV skin wishing Photo Facial therapy.
