Spa Radiance Medical uses Sciton® Broad Band Light™ (BBL) Technology for IPL Photofacials. Intense Pulsed Light Photofacial is an ideal treatment for reversing the effects of sun damage, brown spots, redness, acne scars, rosacea and broken capillaries. The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology uses short bursts of Broad Band Light to penetrate layers of the skin and stimulate the production of collagen. These skin-safe pulses of light work to neutralize overpigmented areas of the skin, and to encourage collagen growth from within. The light concentrates on areas of pigmentation and damaged, visible blood vessels and causes the skin to shed them for newer skin underneath. Broad Band Light keeps the treatment area consistently safe and cool with precise temperature control, preventing damage to nearby tissue. The result is skin that is smoother, plumper, and more even in tone. The IPL Photofacial shows the best results in a series of three to four treatments a month apart which require little or no downtime. Treatment areas include face, neck, décolletage, forearms, hands, and any areas that have had repeated sun exposure.
Broad Band Light is an FDA-cleared and approved technology that has broad applications for skin care and health. A recent Stanford University Department of Dermatology study has asserted that Sciton Broad Band Light treatments can promote more youthful skin to develop at a molecular level. This indicates the groundbreaking nature of BBL treatments, and how the evidence is demonstrating its true reversal of skin damage.
