Photo-rejuvenation by pulsed light (Intense Pulse Light, IPL) is a tool which enables us to treat common skin problems. The Sciton medical device is fitted with BBL (Broad Band Light), which enables us to filter light to the desired wavelength and thus to treat a wide range of skin problems, including the signs of photo-aging, safely.
Photo-rejuvenation with the Sciton BBL is recommended for:
- Brown hyperpigmentation spots
- Age spots
- Rosacea acne
- Broken veins and telangiectasia
- Dilated pores
This treatment can rapidly give radiance by improving the complexion and reducing fine lines.
A session lasts around 30 minutes. Light is applied to the skin and a sensation of heat and light pinching is experienced.
Generally, a single session is sufficient. It can however be the case that we may propose a series of treatments for you, especially in cases of widespread redness. When there are a lot of marks and they are rather deep, a Micro Laser Peel may be used in combination with BBL, which will give a better result.
