Sciton BBL

Skin Treatment

Sciton BBL

BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device on the market. It sets new standards in treating imperfections on the surface of the skin, as well as deeper pigmentation issues such as aging, red vessels and sun damage.

BBL is a more advanced version of IPL therapy. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and BBL stands for Broad Band Light.

This is an ideal low downtime treatment for sun-damaged and pigmented skin. Broad Band Light also has a regenerative effect on dermal fibroblasts and results in reactivation of protein synthesis that mimics younger skin – hence the treatment has been dubbed Sciton Forever Young.

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.

BBL energy allows your physician to treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your physician’s 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
  • Acne
  • Aging Skin
  • Loss of firmness

A 10 year research study from Stanford clearly documented that aging can be altered in human skin using BBL technology to provide a functional change, rather than just a cosmetic mimic of youthful appearance. This study reveals that the appearance of younger skin may be due to the differences observed in gene expression patterns of aged skin becoming more like young skin. (See link to Stanford Study)

BroadBand Light treatments can have a short-term and long-term effect on the aging process. The study goes on to say that according to their research, this form of therapy actually changes the way that your DNA works. It makes your skin cells act as if they were younger. They do this by rejuvenating your genes and the genetic code in your DNA. As a result, the genetic code of your skin cells is reset, and you are left with younger-looking skin.


The treatment can be combined with other Sciton procedures such as HALO to achieve an all over rejuvenation of the face and body.
