What Is a BBL Photofacial by Sciton?
The BBL (Broad Band Light) Photofacial by Sciton is an advanced form of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy. In this process, high-intensity light energy is directed towards the skin cells. This results in the regeneration of skin cells, providing a youthful and smooth skin tone.
Unlike regular IPL techniques, BBL Photofacial technology is capable of emitting different wavelengths. Due to this, the treatment achieves a high degree of precision. This allows it to treat specific areas of the skin without negatively affecting nearby tissues.
The BBL Photofacial treatment uses a specialized device for emitting light energy onto the skin’s surface. This device features a headpiece capable of delivering light wavelengths in the range of 420 to 1,400 nm. It also comes with multiple adapters for treating different areas of the skin.
Which Issues Can Be Treated?
BBL Photofacial technology is highly customizable based on individual requirements. It is suitable for a wide range of skin issues:
- Skin pigmentation
- Age spots
- Redness on the skin
- Skin Tightening
Your Initial Consultation
A consultation session at Dvida Spa is necessary before undergoing a BBL Photofacial treatment. A skincare expert will analyze your medical history to determine your eligibility for the treatment. Let them know about any skin allergies during this appointment. Patients with active skin cancer should not undergo this treatment.
To prepare for your BBL Photofacial, avoid sun exposure. Based on your medical history, your skincare expert may also suggest avoiding certain medications that make you light sensitive.
How Is a BBL Photofacial Done?
The BBL Photofacial treatment takes less than an hour. First, a gel/numbing agent is applied to the treatment area. Once it takes effect, the skincare professional moves the handpiece over the skin. The level of delivery of the light energy is constantly monitored. This application of energy causes a warm sensation in the treatment area.
The process is repeated until desired results are observed. Finally, a serum is applied to the treated area for enhanced hydration.
People return to their normal routine immediately after their BBL Photofacial treatment. For best results, it is crucial to follow aftercare instructions.
Slight redness around the treatment area is a common occurrence. This will disappear in time. Avoid applying makeup for a few days after the treatment, and avoid physically taxing activities for 48 hours. Wearing sunscreen with a proper SPF is crucial.
BBL Photofacial results will be visible within a few days. After treatment, patients have a much smoother skin profile. Depending upon your skin profile, you might need to undergo multiple treatment sessions.
The Cost of a BBL Photofacial by Sciton
Price varies when it comes to a BBL Photofacial. The cost of the treatment is determined based on a number of factors, including the skin imperfections being addressed and the number of treatment sessions required.
