What is A Photofacial?

BBL photofacial treatment, or BroadBand Light therapy, is a non-invasive treatment that uses advanced light technology to reduce signs of aging and sun damage while addressing multiple skin concerns, including uneven texture or tone, vascular lesions and scarring. This laser treatment uses a broad spectrum of light wavelengths applied to the upper layers of the skin to target these concerns.

During treatment, a handheld device delivers intense light pulses to the targeted area. The light energy delivered to the skin cells stimulates collagen and elastin production, resulting in improved texture and tone while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Skin Concerns Targeted During An BBL Photofacial

Discoloration: BBL light can shatter melanin, resulting in diminished brown spots,  and skin discolorations.

Sunspots: Sun-induced freckles and other visible sun damage can be reversed with the help of BroadBand Light photofacial.

Acne: BroadBand Light kills bacteria deep within the skin, clearing up active acne and blemishes.

Rosacea: BBL energy can reduce visible signs of rosacea and promote a more even skin tone.

Broken capillaries: BBL treatments can destroy broken capillaries, enabling them to reabsorb naturally into the body.

Spider veins: BBL treatments break down clotted blood vessels that result in spider veins, reducing their appearance and enabling blood to flow efficiently.

how it works


The length of a Sciton BBL (BroadBand Light) appointment can vary depending on the specific treatment and the extent of the area being treated. On average, a Sciton BBL treatment can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to complete.


The recovery after a Sciton BBL (BroadBand Light) treatment is typically minimal, with most people experiencing some mild redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treated area. These side effects are normal and should resolve within a few hours to a few days.


Most people begin to see improvement in the treated area within a few days to a week after the treatment. The full results of the treatment can take several weeks to a few months to become fully apparent, as the skin continues to heal and regenerate.

What Happens After a BBL Treatment?

You may experience mild redness, swelling or tenderness in the treated area, but these issues should resolve within several days. Targeted sun spots may darken and flake off 3-5 days after treatment.

Increasing water intake and avoiding sun exposure can improve the healing process. Speak to your experienced laser tech for a more detailed treatment plan.
