BroadBand Light (BBL)™ Advanced IPL Treatments San Francisco

Sciton’s BroadBand Light (BBL)™ is the next generation Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) device for treating acne, acne scarring, pigmentation, rosacea, broken capillaries and sun damage. In contrast to other technologies in the IPL category, BBL™ treatments are the most precise and powerful.*BBL™ is not laser (which emits light in a single wavelength) but rather broad spectrum light that’s attracted to both red and brown pigment in the skin. Once they absorb the BBL™ energy, pigment cells are destroyed, thereby causing healing to occur and new skin cells to form. BBL™ is effective for reversing damage on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands and other areas of the body. Apart from being exceptionally accurate, BBL is safer and works really well even for the most challenging skin types.

BBL™ Corrective, Forever Young & Forever Clear for Youthful, Clear Skin

BroadBand Light therapy has a number of protocols for rejuvenating skin. BBL™ Corrective is the gold standard for treating pigment and vascular issues such as sun damage, freckles, small facial veins and rosacea. Normally 3-4 sessions are required for dramatic improvement in skin smoothness, clarity and luminosity. BBL™ Forever Young is a long-term maintenance strategy of doing one treatment every 4 months after the initial corrective sessions are completed. Forever Young is based on a ten-year study conducted at Stanford University that shows regular BBL treatments can reverse DNA damage and aging at the cellular level. According to the research, treated skin cells were found to act and look younger and more vibrant. Therefore, long-term BBL™ treatments can effectively reduce the appearance of brown spots, pigment issues, uneven skin tone and broken capillaries while boosting collagen and firmness.* Those suffering from mild to moderate acne can benefit from BBL™ Forever Clear. It’s a highly effective acne management program that uses the power of light to clear blemishes and heal the skin without creams or medications. Forever Clear therapy involves three different light wavelengths. The BLUE BBL™ light eliminates acne-causing bacteria deep in the pores. The YELLOW BBL™ light reduces inflammation and redness for healthy, luminous skin. Finally, INFRA-RED light is used to stimulate the body’s natural healing response.

What to Expect with BroadBand Light (BBL)™ Skin Treatment

BroadBand Light (BBL)™ entails very little downtime and discomfort is minimal. Most people describe the sensation as heat and pressure being exerted on the skin’s surface. In most cases a numbing cream is not required although we offer it to all patients prior to your treatment. During the treatment, protective eyewear is required. Immediately after the procedure, the skin can look red or ‘sunburned,’ which can last for 2-4 hours. It’s very important to protect your skin from the sun and to avoid exfoliation for at least two weeks. We recommend using only skincare products recommended by the clinic during the initial healing phase after your treatment, such as a broadband sunscreen from brands like Elta MD, Obagi, or Skin Ceuticals. We invite you to schedule a consultation at Azala Medical Aesthetics located in San Francisco – Union Square to see if BBL™ is right for you, to review the cost, financing options and any special promotions.
