IPL Photofacial

BroadBand Light Technology

Photofacials have become a very popular treatment to combat photoaging due to sun damage, because of the low cost and little downtime. Commonly known as IPL or photofacials, the Sciton BBL System is one of the latest innovations in the industry and is regarded as the safest and most effective technology to treat conditions such as:
  • Acne
  • Sun Spots
  • Brown and Red Spots
  • Age Spots
  • Freckles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Redness and/or flushing
  • Rosacea and facial spider veins
There is no downtime associated with the BBL treatment and you can resume normal activities immediately after your treatment.  The BBL can be used in many places on the body, most commonly on the face, neck and chest. Even though you will notice results after one treatment, most patients need 3-5 treatments, scheduled at three week intervals, for optimal results. If you have ANY skin imperfection that bothers you, it is very likely that the Sciton BBL can help you.  Schedule a consultation with Dr. Farah to see which series of treatments is right for you.

How it Works

BBL (BroadBand Light Technology) uses the power of pulsed light to deliver amazing phototherapy results.  Dr. Farah will select the appropriate filter or wavelength, depending on the condition you are getting treated.  The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the top layers of the skin, coagulating the tissue of the targeted areas.  This process helps restore your skin to its natural stage.  The treated areas darken immediately after the treatment, and then gradually fade over 1-2 weeks, resulting in younger and fresher looking skin.

Our Technology

The Sciton BBL is regarded by medical professionals everywhere, as the most advanced and effective photo rejuvenation technology.  The BBL is gentle, non-invasive and safe, and can be done in as little as 20 minutes.
