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 laser hair removal work?

IPL laser hair removal with our Sciton Broad Band Light (BBLTM) is a treatment that is non-invasive, comfortable, efficacious, and tailored to our patients.

During treatment, a concentrated beam of light is targeted at the hair. The light is absorbed by the pigment, which damages the follicle enough to retard future growth. New growth in the area may cause you to want a touch up occasionally.

Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results. Any area of your body can be treated.
