What is BBL?
BBL stands for BroadBand Light™, the world’s most powerful technology for treating sun-damaged skin (age spots), redness/rosacea, small facial vessels, and acne. The treatment is light-based, very safe, and highly effective. Many patients combine treatment with SkinTyte™ or HALO™ for maximum results. Here at Pacific Coast Aesthetics, there are a number of different BBL treatments available, including Forever Young BBL™, eradication of acne with Forever Clear BBL™, and laser hair removal with Forever Bare BBL™. Interchangeable light filters allow us to target treatments with greater precision, and a thermoelectric monitoring assembly and sapphire cooling crystal work to maximize patient safety and comfort. BBL does more than just make your skin appear younger. Regular treatments reduce your chance of developing skin cancer by treating pre-cancerous lesions before they progress, and BBL is the only light-based treatment that can alter the expression of genes associated with aging. Try BBL for clearer, younger, and healthier-looking skin!
What is the difference between IPL and BBL?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, an older technology that uses high-intensity light to heat the upper layers of the skin, which stimulates skin cells to produce new collagen for younger- and healthier-looking skin. BBL stands for BroadBand Light™, a newer, more enhanced, and more effective version of IPL. BBL’s dual-light system penetrates deeper than IPL to target imperfections where they originate, eliminating sun-damaged age spots, vessels, redness and rosacea, and other unwanted pigment. It stimulates collagen and the development of new skin cells, decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and results in smoother, healthier-looking skin. BBL does more than just make your skin appear younger. It is the only light-based treatment that can alter the expression of genes associated with aging. Multiple interchangeable light filters allow the operator to target the delivery of energy with greater precision, and the BBL handpiece uses a thermoelectric monitoring assembly that enables its sapphire cooling crystal to continually and precisely maintain temperatures from 0 – 30° Celsius with adjustability of every degree in between. The result is improved performance and enhanced patient comfort and safety.
What is Forever Young BBL™?
Forever Young BBL™ combines three treatment protocols in one. The first stage focuses on collagen stimulation for firmer, younger-looking skin. The second stage targets redness and rosacea, and the third stage targets abnormal pigment such as age spots, freckling, and other pigmented blemishes. Forever Young BBL™ does more than just make your skin appear younger. Regular treatments reduce your chance of developing skin cancer by treating pre-cancerous lesions before they progress, and BBL is the only light-based treatment that can alter the expression of genes associated with aging. Forever Young BBL™ treatments are fast, highly effective, and require no downtime. The treatment is performed in an office setting, can be completed in about 30 minutes, and you can return to work or your normal activities the same day. The face, neck, upper chest, and hands are common areas of application, but the treatment can be performed on any area of the body. For the best long-term results, Forever Young BBL™ should be performed every 4-6 months. Many patients combine treatment with SkinTyte™ or HALO™ for maximum results.
What is SkinTyte™?
SkinTyte™ is a safe and highly-effective treatment that uses infrared light technology to heat and stimulate dermal collagen while protecting the upper layer of the skin (epidermis). The energy is delivered in rapid, gentle pulses to promote contraction and partial coagulation of collagen, which stimulates the body’s natural healing process and leads to a firmer and more youthful appearance. Safe for all skin types, SkinTyte™ can predictably, effectively, and comfortably treat any area of the body where a firmer appearance is desired. The treatment is performed in an office setting, requires no anesthesia, and can be completed in about 15 minutes. Many patients combine SkinTyte™ treatment with Forever Young BBL™ or HALO™ for maximum results.
What is HALO™?
HALO™ is a revolutionary skin-resurfacing technology that is unique to the Sciton laser. The combined ablative and non-ablative wavelengths remove aged tissue and stimulate collagen, giving your skin a younger, healthier, and more vibrant appearance with long-lasting results. HALO™, the world’s first Hybrid Fractional Laser, delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone to get the best results with minimal downtime.
Here’s what happens: During treatment, the laser heats a microscopic column of skin to a temperature that necroses the outer layer (epidermis) and denatures collagen in the deeper dermal layer, which stimulates the healing process. Over the next 5-7 days, the healthy basal cell layer regenerates and proliferates upward, expelling the necrosed tissue as small packets of debris called Microscopic Epidermal Necrotic Debris (MENDs). The old sun-damaged tissue is expelled from the body and replaced by newly-formed skin cells, resulting in a clearer and healthier complexion termed the “HALO™ glow.”
Older technologies required weeks of healing and yielded inferior results. With HALO™, patients benefit from a more comfortable experience, markedly faster recovery, and exceptional results! We combine topical anesthesia, advanced cooling technology, and Pro-Nox to maximize patient comfort both during and after the procedure. The treatment is performed in an office setting and can be completed in about 45 minutes. We provide detailed post-care instructions, skin care products, and thorough follow-up to ensure your safety and satisfaction. At Pacific Coast Aesthetics, we are with you every step of the way!
What is Forever Clear BBL™?
Forever Clear BBL™ is a cutting-edge technology that uses blue and yellow wavelengths of light to clear difficult-to-treat acne. The blue wavelength eliminates acne-causing bacteria deep within the pores, while the yellow wavelength reduces inflammation and redness. For additional benefit, infrared light can be used to promote the body’s natural healing process. Forever Clear BBL™ can be used along with Envy Dermalinfusion microdermabrasion and tailored skin products to achieve the best control and maintenance of acne-prone skin. These comfortable treatments allow patients to look forward to their visits and adhere to a plan that will maximize results.
What is Forever Bare BBL™?
Forever Bare BBL™ uses safe, comfortable, and highly-effective laser and motion technology to heat hair follicles evenly and remove unwanted hair. The procedure is more efficient and thorough than traditional laser hair removal methods. Throughout the procedure, the area is continuously cooled to improve patient comfort. The safety technology of Forever Bare BBL™ allows for customizable treatments on a diverse range of patients, including those with darker skin types. The treatment is performed in an office setting and can be completed in about 10-15 minutes.
