The BBL Laser Treatment
All areas of the body can be treated with Sciton BBL. Many patients describe their BBL treatment as light snapping of a rubber band against your skin. The sensation only lasts as long as the quick pulse of light.
How Does a BBL Laser Treatment Work?
BBL works by emitting pulse light energy. This energy is absorbed by targets in the skin that are either pigmented or vascular lesions. The treated tissue is then removed through the body’s natural healing process, resulting in a more even and youthful appearance.
What To Expect After Your BBL Laser Treatment

Most patients need a series of 3 to 6 BBL treatments. you will get better results by spacing treatments about 4 weeks apart. Your skin care specialist will recommend regular restorative maintenance treatments for long-term improvement.
