Phototherapy

Sciton Joule BBL (BroadBand Light) technology utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent phototherapy results. By selecting the appropriate wavelength or filter, we are able to treat a broad range of skin conditions caused by skin aging and sun exposure. BBL phototherapy

BBL is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles, and sun damage. BBL energy allows your aesthetic professional to precisely treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results. The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas coagulates tissue to variable depth. This process helps restore the skin to its natural stage. In addition, the photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.

If you’re considering a treatment and are interested in learning how the Sciton Phototherapy can help to quickly reverse the signs of aging, please schedule a free consultation at European Style Aesthetics in Manhattan and Brooklyn, NY by calling us at 212-535-1201 / 718-743-5616 or click here to contact us

BBL energy allows your aesthetic professional to precisely treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results[/acc_item] [acc_item title="How does BBL Phototherapy work?"]The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.

[/acc_item] [acc_item title="What areas can be treated?"] Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.[/acc_item] [acc_item title="How many treatments will I need?"] The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and your physician will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your skin care professional may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment. [/acc_item] [acc_item title="What will happen during the procedure?"] Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a warm or “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. Your aesthetic professional will discuss all of your options with you.[/acc_item] [acc_item title="Will it be uncomfortable?"] The procedure is gentle, noninvasive, and safe. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, however, your skin care professional may choose to use it on more sensitive areas.[/acc_item] [acc_item title="What should I expect after the treatment?"] You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine lines and pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated. Your skin care professional will provide you with complete information about the post treatment care and results[/acc_item] [acc_item title="How long will it take to recover?"] This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of your activities immediately. [/acc_item] [acc_item title="What aftercare do I need?"] It is important to follow your skin care professional’s instructions. You may be given some skin care products and instructions on how to use them. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors[/acc_item] [/accordion]
