What do IPL and BBLTM mean?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Broad Band Light (BBLTM) and photofacial are three terms for a class of device that uses a flash lamp to produce light energy of many wavelengths at the same time. Just like lasers, different devices offer a wide range of power outputs. High-energy treatments create laser-like effects.
BBLTM is Sciton’s trademarked name for their IPL machine, which is far more powerful and controllable than previous generation IPL devices.
How does IPL photorejuvenation work?
The light energy delivered by IPL photorejuvenation 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 foundation, leading to increased skin firmness.
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 reduce the fine vessels that cause redness and reduce the unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.
Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results. 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 the face, neck, back of the hands, chest, and shoulders.
