The Aesthetic Surgery Center has been proud to be the first practice in Naples, Florida to offer the Sciton Profile™ Broadband Light (BBL) device. Broadband Light’sTM innovative technology sets new standards for the treatment of skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles, and sun damage. Broadband Light energy can be used to treat age spots, small facial veins (telangiectasias), rosacea, solar lentigines (freckles), brown spots, and poikiloderma.
The light energy delivered by the BBL™ will gently heat up the upper layers of your skin. By selecting the appropriate wavelength or filter, Drs. Agarwal, Maloney, and Gill will use this photothermal energy to target the fine vessels and unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.
The most popular treatments are for the face, neck, upper chest, back of the hands, and arms. On average, two treatments spaced 3 weeks apart are necessary to produce the desired results. You may benefit from additional treatments depending on the severity of your condition. Maintenance treatments are beneficial annually.
The BBL™ treatment is gentle, non-invasive, and safe. Topical anesthesia is beneficial, and there is minimal down-time. If the treatment is for brown spots, the spots will initially darken over 24 hours, before speckling and falling off 1-2 weeks later. If the treatment is for capillaries, there is initial mild swelling and possible mild bruising. Because the epidermal skin barrier is left intact, you can return to work and apply makeup right away. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure throughout the treatment/recovery period.
