BroadBand Light

  • Slide Show

When you look in the mirror, do you see a problem with your skin you would like to have treated effectively and safely? Have you tried treatments in the past that have failed? Well, you are not alone. Many patients share similar concerns related to the appearance of their skin, ranging from unwanted brown spots to unwanted hair growth.

With that in mind, at Beaches Facial Plastic & Nasal Surgery Center, we expect to surpass your expectations and maximize your results. Therefore, it is important for us to offer treatments that are consistent with our practice expectations. As a result, Scott Trimas, MD, FACS, and Jenifer S. George, ARNP, are happy to announce the addition of Sciton BroadBand Light (BBL). In fact, we are the only practice at the Beaches to offer Sciton BBL.

BroadBand light (BBL) is an innovative, specialized filtered light that targets specific skin problems and/or concerns, on or off the face, including:

• Brown spots or pigmented lesions
• Skin discoloration
• Red spots or vascular lesions
• Redness or rosacea
• Fine blood vessels
• Unwanted hair growth
• Acne

The number of BBL treatments will vary depending upon the issue being treated and the severity of the issue. On average though, a patient can expect between three to four treatment sessions with the time of each treatment session varying depending upon the size of the area being treated.

At the time of treatment, protective eyewear is applied. A cool gel will be applied to the area being treated followed by gentle contact of the Sciton BBL hand piece. The hand piece is moved across the area of skin being treated delivering pulses of specialized filtered light that will target your problem and/or concern. Immediately following treatment the area may be pink and mildly swollen; that should subside in less than 12 to 24 hours. You should expect to be able to return to your daily activities with few restrictions.

At the time of your consultation your provider will discuss in detail the recommended treatment for you and answer any questions you may have with the treatment plan. During your consultation, pre and post treatment instructions will also be discussed; abiding by these instructions will ensure safe and superior results.

Dr. Trimas and I are committed to exceeding your expectations. With the new addition of the Sciton BBL, we have expanded our treatment options in continuing to treat your skin concerns effectively and safely. We invite you to a complimentary consultation to learn how Sciton BBL can benefit the appearance of your skin.
