Besides topical and oral medication, BBL has now proven to be helpful in the treatment of acne. In many cases, this offers an alternative to oral medications such as Accutane or long-term antibiotics. While we might be all too familiar with the term IPL or Intense Pulsed Light, it’s the newer generation of BBL or BroadBand Light that you should familiarize yourself with. With the help of different filters, light of varying wavelengths are converted into heat energy when absorbed by chromophores in the skin.
The Sciton BBL blue light treatment targets acne-causing bacteria Propionibacterium Acnes to effectively reduce infection on the skin. At the same time, the oil glands that produce sebum are also controlled, making the face less oily. Overall, the skin health is restored and optimized using protocols that we have refined over the years. It takes 15 minutes for each treatment and patients return weekly to twice-weekly for 6 to 8 sessions. This can speed up the resolution of acne by up to 3 times compared with conventional treatment regimens without pain nor downtime. Be assured that you will look and feel an improvement to your skin in no time at all.
Having acne can put you in a dark place. Light treatments can put your acne away.
