Acne Treatment

What is a BBL Acne Laser Facial?

Sciton BBL is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine. BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device delivering light energy deep into your skin to stimulate and regenerate your skin cells, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.

How does it work?

Sciton BBL™ is an FDA approved treatment that utilizes a blue filter on the first pass to selectively target acne-causing bacteria that are partially responsible for acne in the skin. A red filter on the second pass helps to reduce redness and deeper acne lesions. A third filter is used to reduce the production of skin oils and overactive sebaceous glands. A series of 4-6 treatments consistently performed every 2 weeks is recommended. For added benefits a home care regimen can be discussed during consultation.

What to expect after the treatment?

After the treatment is completed, some may experience mild redness and minimal swelling of the acne, and surrounding skin for 24-48 hours. Typically this procedure allows for minimal to no down time and makeup can be applied immediately post treatment, if desired. Customized post treatment instructions will be discussed during your consultation and after treatment has been performed.
