We Are So Excited to Announce our Newest Addition:
IT’S A BIG DEAL! We are very excited to announce the addition of the Sciton BBL to our practice. BBL is Sciton’s trademarked name for the IPL machine. BroadBand Light (BBL) is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active lifestyles, and sun damage. Years of unprotected sun exposure, harsh cleansers, and the process of aging can do a number on your skin, making it look tired and wrinkled. Thankfully, there’s a skin treatment that can reduce the appearance of damage and subtract years from your complexion. BBL is used to precisely treat age and sun spots, small facial veins and many other skin conditions. Your treatment is tailored to your individual needs and the results are amazing and last a lifetime. Some other treatments done with this platform include SkinTyte and Halo Laser.
What is BBL/IPL?
BBL and IPL are the same term for a class of device- they have different levels of outcome, but are considered the same procedure. BBL/IPL penetrates deeply through the layers of the skin without removing skin cells. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. The machine is equipped with advanced cooling features, allowing the use of high-powered energy with minimal discomfort. Laser settings are easily adjusted for a patient’s skin type and severity of damage. BBL is a safe, effective approach to younger looking skin.
BBL treatment (IPL) is known to treat and target pigmentation – both brown-toned and red-toned. For brown toned pigmentation, the darker colored sections effectively disappear, after being pulled up to the surface – After the treatment, and over a period of about a week or so, the darker pigment comes up to the surface and flakes off, leaving a more even skin tone. It’s recommended frequently by dermatologists to treat hyperpigmentation as well as rosacea, and is most effective in a series of treatments and on a maintenance basis, where a patient comes back for this every 6 months to a year. During the initial consultation, you will be advised how to best prepare for your treatment. The number of treatments will be explained by the Esthetician- she will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire.
SkinTyte By Sciton
SkinTyte is another procedure that is done on the Sciton machine. SkinTyte is a non-invasive treatment used to address skin laxity and sagging. SkinTyte technology focuses pulsed infrared light that cools the skin while heating subsurface collagen. This catalyzes a natural healing process that tightens and firms the treated area. SkinTyte can be used in conjunction with face or neck lift surgery, laser resurfacing, BBL, and collagen injections. SkinTyte is not, however, a substitute for a face-lift. SkinTyte treatment is recommended for patients who desire moderate skin improvement without having to undergo surgery.
Halo Laser By Sciton
Over time, your skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure and your body’s natural aging process. Halo combines deep dermal and skin surface renewal to create remarkable results with minimal downtime. The Halo laser targets age-related sunspots, fine lines, discoloration, and scarring. Previous lasers weren’t nearly as effective because they lacked precision. By contrast, Halo is carefully calibrated for each patient to heal damage at the required skin depth. In addition to reducing visible damage, this procedure also improves general skin tone, texture, and reflectivity. Halo Laser is a breakthrough laser treatment that combines two types of lasers to create major results with minimal downtime.
All the above procedures are done through our Sciton Platform- Sciton systems have become the standard of care in each of the above applications. Dr. Roth and his team will help you select the exact non-invasive procedure to meet your needs on our newest technology.
