Sciton BroadBand Light is a versatile technology that allows our skincare professionals to treat a variety of common conditions. It is designed to safely rejuvenate the facial skin and reduce the appearance of acne and benign pigmented and vascular lesions. The Sciton BBL platform is easily adjusted to target each patient's particular skincare needs.

Most people with pigmentation problems are suitable candidates for BBL facial rejuvenation. The treatment can eliminate or reduce the appearance of the following:
The BBL device delivers pulses of light energy that are absorbed by the melanin in the pigmented lesions of the skin. The lesions darken and then disappear or appear dramatically reduced in color. The BBL filters can be quickly switched in and out of the handpiece, changing wavelengths to address different skin concerns. BBL can also be combined with the SkinTyte module to heat the underlying collagen of the skin and stimulate collagen remodeling. Sciton BBL treatment incorporates advanced cooling technology to prevent the skin in the treatment area from getting too hot.
We usually recommend a series of several sessions to achieve the desired outcomes.
Since BBL facial rejuvenation is minimally invasive, it does not require significant downtime. In fact, our Chicago BBL facial rejuvenation patients can usually resume their normal activities almost immediately after treatment. They may notice mild redness and flaking as the pigmentation of the skin peels off.
BBL treatments improve the uniformity of the skin's tone and texture, addressing irregularities in pigmentation. BBL treatment is often used as a non-ablative alternative to laser skin resurfacing. It can accomplish many of the same goals, using a less-invasive approach. For the patient, this means less downtime and fewer potential complications during recovery. One notable benefit of BBL, when compared to other pulsed light treatments, is that it requires fewer treatment sessions to achieve better outcomes; this may reduce the overall cost for patients.
The potential risks of BBL facial rejuvenation include infection, unfavorable changes in pigmentation or texture, burns and scarring. If you are concerned about these risks, speak with our skincare professionals to learn about the measures they take to avoid these complications.
