BBL is an innovative light based therapy from Sciton, a world leader in laser aesthetics. It’s a completely non-invasive treatment, that can be completed in under an hour with no downtime.
BBL stands for BroadBand Light. Similar to Intense Pulse Light (IPL), the BBL is able to target a wide range of skin conditions including acne, fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, dilated facial blood vessels and unwanted hair. Both BBL and IPL are less aggressive than laser skin resurfacing. Treatment is often described as painless and patients experience little or no downtime.

BBL™ Photofacial – What to Expect
Practically any area of the body can be treated with BBL. The most popular areas are the face, neck, chest, shoulders and hands. Our plastic surgeons perform BBL photofacial procedures in our outpatient cosmetic treatment center at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, MD.
The BroadBand Light energy is delivered to the skin through a special device, gently heating the upper layers of skin. As the heat is absorbed, it stimulates the production of collagen in skin cells. Over the following weeks, skin will gradually improve in tone and texture, taking on a natural, more youthful appearance.
