What does BBL technology mean and how does it work?

BBL - what does it mean and how does the name stand for?

What is the meaning of Sciton's acronym?

What is the fundamental difference?

are one of the most frequently asked questions from our visitors.

What does BBL mean?

BBL™ stands for (BroadBand Light), which means the use of a wide range of radiation from the visible spectrum to infrared radiation with different pulse durations for phototherapy.

A wider radiation range and high power allows for a more effective and complex effect on targets in the skin, showing obvious clinical results.

Difference from IPL

In the name itself, Sciton indicated the fundamental difference between BBL and IPL systems from other manufacturers. Due to its power, the BBL system is able to act on the target with powerful solid pulses, without breaking them into short pulses or sub-pulses, as in IPL systems. You can feel it during the procedure - the BBL flash feels like a powerful hot push against the skin. While the IPL flare is felt as a portion of warmth.

IPL - an abbreviation for Intense Pulsed Light.

BBL belongs to medical devices and has a number of clinical studies proving efficacy and safety in various skin conditions.

Difference between BBL and IPL

BBL photorejuvenation is the most effective solution for eliminating hyperpigmentation, pathologically dilated vessels (ruby bodies, telangiectasia, rosacea, rosacea), acne treatment, prevention of photo and chrono-aging.

Types of Skin Aging

  • Chronoaging is a process caused by the influence of time and is associated with age-related changes in the body, which also affects the quality, elasticity and firmness of the skin.
  • Photoaging - a process associated with the effect of ultraviolet radiation on the skin, resulting in thickening and coarsening of the stratum corneum, dryness, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, wine stains and increased vascular pattern (telangiectasia - persistent dilation of small vessels) and general signs of aging and sun damage (ultraviolet radiation).

How it works

Photorejuvenation is a concept that describes the underlying technology for treating and rejuvenating the skin by providing light therapy.

Light energy is absorbed by skin chromophores and converted into heat.

During the procedure, the energy of light affects the chromophores, the cells that absorb it and under the influence of heat are destroyed or change their structure. Then, immune cells are involved in the work and the process of removing damaged cells, replacing them with young and healthy cells, takes place. Thus, a therapeutic effect is achieved, depending on the goal - lightening hyperpigmentation, removing blood vessels, eliminating inflammation in acne and rejuvenating the skin. Therefore, during the rehabilitation period in the treatment of hyperpigmentation, first the darkening of the treated areas occurs and subsequently their gradual exfoliation, which leads to brighter, smoother and more youthful skin.

  • Chromophores can be: melanin in the skin or hair follicle, hemoglobin of dilated vessels, propionobacteria in the treatment of acne, as well as water and fibrous structures (collagen and elastin), when the goal is skin rejuvenation.

Sciton's BBL laser is the most powerful device on the market and an effective patented broadband light technology that has set new high standards for the treatment of chrono and photoaging with amazing results without long-term rehabilitation.

Any area can be treated with photorejuvenation. The photorejuvenation procedure is indicated for all areas of the body, including the area of ​​the face, neck and décolleté, arms, shoulders, forearms, back and back of the hands - precisely those areas that are more likely than others to be negatively affected by ultraviolet radiation and have signs of photoaging.

BBL photorejuvenation will not only help get rid of age spots, freckles, redness on the body, but also significantly improve the quality and condition of your skin, increasing its immunity and adjusting metabolic processes in the skin. After a course of procedures, your skin will look firm, tightened and fresh, brighter, smoother and younger. The results will not be long in coming, you will see the first changes already 2 weeks after the first procedure, and with each subsequent procedure, the result will multiply. Photorejuvenation will stimulate skin cells to regenerate, lift the face and neck, and relieve you of the signs of aging by returning your skin to its natural youthful and radiant state.

What course of BBL treatments?

Remember that hardware procedures are always carried out in a course to achieve maximum and lasting results. The required number of procedures is selected individually, the average rate is 3-4 procedures, but in some cases it can be increased to 8 procedures, with intervals of 2-3 weeks between them for the face area and 3-4 weeks for the rest of the areas. In order to have an accurate idea of ​​the course of procedures and an individual treatment plan, you need to sign up for a consultation, where the doctor will tell you in detail all the nuances of the procedure, preparation and post-procedure care, as well as give recommendations on skin care products for home care. Home care is essential for best results.

Consultation and skin diagnostics before the procedure
