Sciton Laser BBL

The MedSpa at Wake Plastic Surgery proudly serves Cary, Raleigh, and the surrounding areas.

BBL is the most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) FDA-Approved device on the market, and sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active lifestyles, and sun damage. BBL energy can precisely treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results.

Is BBL Right For Me?

Anyone that wishes to correct and restore their skin to its natural beauty and desires clearer, smoother, more vibrant, and younger-looking skin can be an excellent candidate for treatment. Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders. Additionally, we now offer Forever Clear BBL which is a cutting edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine. The most common conditions treated with BBL:

  • Pigmented Lesions (freckles, age spots)
  • Vascular Lesions (small blood vessels, rosacea)
  • Acne
  • Skin Firmness
  • Uneven Skin Texture
  • Unwanted Hair

What is BBL?

Forever Young BBL®BBL BroadBand Light technology utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent phototherapy results. The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions. Your skin will feel smoother, pores will appear less noticeable, and uneven pigment will fade.

What is Forever Clear BBL?

The Forever Clear BBL uses a two-step process. In the first step, skin is treated with a blue BBL light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria at its source. This blue light works deep down in the pores. In the second step, the skin is treated with a yellow BBL light to reduce the inflammation and redness associated with acne to give you healthy skin with a luminous glow. Forever Clear BBL is great for anyone experiencing acne and is safe for most skin types. Most areas of the body can be treated, while the most common treatment areas are where acne is found the most: the face, neck, and back. You can expect improvement in just one treatment, but the total number of treatments needed varies based on the severity of a patient’s acne condition. After the treatment, you may experience some redness that will resolve within a few hours. Your treated skin will be clearer and pores will appear less noticeable. You should plan to avoid direct sun exposure after your treatment. The treatment is quick and easy, and virtually painless with no downtime.

What Should I Expect During The Procedure?

Sciton BBL Patient Results

Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a warm or “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. There is no need for a topical anesthetic. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of your activities immediately. You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine lines and pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Your provider will provide a comprehensive skincare regimen to encourage lasting results, this may include other BBL options or aftercare products. You should plan to avoid direct sun exposure after your treatment.
