Sciton BBL™ -Photorejuvenation
What is Sciton’s BBL™?
The laser platform used here at First Impressions is the Sciton BBL, it is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device and one of the safest laser treatment options. The treatment uses short blasts of high-intensity light to produce younger-looking skin that’s firmer and more even, with little discomfort and recovery time. It’s broad range of wavelengths allow targeted treatments for multiple skin conditions and concerns.
How does it work?
BBL uses broad-spectrum light that is absorbed by brown pigment in the skin and the hemoglobin in blood vessels that cause redness. When the skin absorbs the different wavelengths of light, the targeted lesions whether it be pigmentation or redness are destroyed. Brown spots slough off within 7-14 days and the closed off blood vessels are absorbed by the body. The light’s energy and heat also trigger a wound-healing response, boosting collagen production.

After paperwork & consultation are completed our practitioners will give you safety goggles to protect your eyes from the bright light. A topical numbing cream can be used for comfort. The pulse of light may feel like a small sting, but it is well tolerated. The treatment takes anywhere from 20-40 minutes, depending on the area treated. Usually 3-5 treatments, 4 weeks apart are recommended to see maximum results depending on which treatment you are having. The treatments can be purchased in packages and payment plans are offered if needed.
