Correct Common Skin Conditions with BBL by Sciton
One of the most versatile pieces of technology that Aesthetics by Norden uses is BroadBand Light (BBL) by Sciton. Approved by the FDA for safety, BBL treats areas of hyperpigmentation (e.g., typically brown or red age or sun spots), acne rosacea, spider veins and a variety of other unwanted skin imperfections that blemish an otherwise beautiful and expressive face. Our technicians love BBL technology because it delivers excellent results, and our patients love that treatment is non-invasive and relatively pain-free.
Remove Embarrassing Lesions
If age spots and areas of sun damage on your face don’t accurately reflect how youthful and vivacious you feel on the inside, you may be a great candidate for BBL. BroadBand Light technology is great for reversing the effects of sun damage and aging, like age spots, liver spots, broken capillaries or freckles.
During a BBL treatment, the technician will glide the handpiece over the treatment area, targeting the problem area. The handpiece will emit light energy at a specific wavelength, delivering it to the lesion. The light is attracted to, and absorbed by, the melanin in the skin that causes the dark pigmentation. This process creates heat in the cells and destroys them. Within a few days, the pigmented lesion darkens, and then fades away.
Revive Blemished Skin
BBL improves acne and in several ways: first, the light energy causes the collagen to remodel itself, resulting in an allover improvement in the skin’s tone and texture. Also, the BBL energy treats overactive oil glands that contribute to the proliferation of acne. Finally, the energy can selectively target and improve the dark pigmentation of acne scars.
The result: beautiful, unblemished skin that you can be proud of.
Other Advantages of BBL Treatment
BBL treatment is popular because it is non-surgical and non-invasive, yet very effective. Performed right in our office with topical anesthesia, treatment feels similar to a slight snap from a rubber band, but nothing more. Treatment sessions usually last approximately 20 minutes, and there is virtually no downtime.
