Skin Rejuvenation on a cellular level
BBL stands for Broad Band Light and is the name of an advanced light energy-based technology that delivers light therapy in specific bands rather than in the single wavelengths that are used in laser treatments. Exposure to this specialised light not only targets and removes blemishes but also stimulates the skin to rejuvenate itself.
The Sciton BBL has added technology that sets new standards in treating skin conditions associated with ageing, active lifestyles and sun damage.
By adjusting the machine’s parameters, BBL is able to be tailored to treat each individual skin’s condition to achieve the desired result.

Why Sciton Forever Young BBL?
The difference between normal IPL and Forever Young BBL is the light energy that is delivered.
Sciton BBL will gently heat the upper layers of the skin and 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.
The Sciton Forever Young BBL is the only device that has been shown to change the expression of genes associated with ageing, longevity and increased lifespan.

- +What does the BBL treatment involve?
The eyes are protected with safety shields or glasses and a cold gel is applied to the skin. There is a noticeable flash sensation similar to the flash of a camera. Some slight discomfort might be felt, often described as a warm elastic band flicked onto the skin. However, any discomfort is momentary and there is no need for any topical anaesthetic cream. A BBL treatment typically takes around 20-30 minutes.
- +Can BBL be used in combination with other treatments?
Yes. BBL treatments can be used in combination with various other procedures such as wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, chemical peels, skin needling and photodynamic therapy.
- +What is the aftercare?
There is no downtime after this treatment. Patients may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours to a day. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated area followed by fading and flaking off over several days. After the initial healing phase, you should begin to appreciate an improvement in skin tone and quality. In most cases you can apply mineral based makeup immediately after treatment if required.
