We are excited to offer our patients treatment with our Sciton Broadband light (BBL). We carefully selected this device from a number of alternative options as our modality of choice for treating a number of pigmented and vascular skin conditions. The BBL uses two xenon flashlamps to produce a powerful burst of light that is absorbed into the skin. Within the skin different targets, called chromophores absorb this energy resulting in the clinical effect. The BBL features different, switchable filters to modify the wavelength of the light emitted and thus enables different chromophores to be targeted.
One of the key features of the BBL is that the light energy is delivered as a square pulse, ensuring that the light energy is delivered in an even fashion maximising the effect on the target. Many IPL machines deliver pulses with a prolonged low power tail which is not strong enough to affect the target chromophore and increases the risk of damage to the skin. The BBL also features an advanced cooling system, which protects the skin and minimises the sensation of the BBL.
The BBL is used to treat a number of different conditions including:
