Photoaging - skin aging due ultraviolet rays damage. The main features: fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sunny lentigo, enlarged vascular (cuperosis).
The BBL system emits powerful light energy of a certain range. Depending on the prevalence of a particular problem, the doctor will select the necessary range and power of the procedure. Light energy is absorbed by certain targets: in the case of pigmentation, the target is melanin, with dilated vessels (rosacea), hemoglobin is the target, with wrinkles the effect is directed to collagen and elastin.

There are many broadband light systems on the market that are efficient and safe for the patient. It’s a paradox, at first glance, broadband light systems are technically simpler than laser systems, but as our practical experience shows, there are not so many powerful and efficient systems and they can be listed on the fingers.
Recovery progress after photorejuvenation treatment. Day 0 - ephelids before the procedure; Day 3 after the procedure - age spots darkened by BBL; on Day 10 after treatment, the darkened pigment spots lightened. In subsequent procedures, pale pigment spots and those that were not treated in previous procedures will be lightened.
Sciton's BBL rejuvenation system, USA is the best system because it allows achieving results at capacities 2-3 times lower than on IPL systems, as a result of which BBL has a large safety margin with the same therapeutic effects (performance indicators). IPL systems cannot achieve such efficiency because they are forced to raise powers, which often causes burns, but not good results of the treatment. After a quality procedure, you will feel that the skin has changed for the better. This is noticeably fast enough - already two weeks after the treatment.
Sciton BBL is the only system in the world that has clinically proven skin rejuvenation results.

Before and after
Photorejuvenation and other treatments combination
Photorejuvenation is combined with all aesthetic procedures, it is only necessary to observe the correct sequence and intervals. There is an unfounded opinion that laser and photorejuvenation procedures, including, are not combined with injection techniques - fillers, dysport, botox and mesotherapy. We hasten to please our patients that there are clinical studies that prove BBL rejuvenation does not affect fillers. Therefore, the combination of photorejuvenation with other procedures, on the contrary, will allow, in addition to equalizing skin tone and texture, to obtain a complex aesthetic effect.
If injection procedures are expected, then first you should do a photorejuvenation course, and then injection procedures. If the injection methods are performed by the course, then it is recommended to undergo the procedure 14 days after the injection.
Photorejuvenation is combined with
- Fractional laser resurfacing
- Botox and Dysport
