Sciton BBL Chicago IL

Photofacial | IPL Treatment Chicago IL | Skokie | Arlington HeightsThe Sciton’s BBL™s Skin Rejuvenation system, used in our office, is the most advanced and effective IPL technology on the market. Photothermal energy delivered by the BBL™ handpiece will gently heat up the upper layers of your skin and target the melanin pigment responsible for the color of freckles and sun or age spots. Heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen helping restore your skin to its natural appearance, fading the pigmented spots, blending the skin’s natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking.

A photofacial treatment starts by putting special glasses you are provided with. Our esthetician then applies a cooling gel on the skin, and directs the pulses of light, produced by the BBL™ handpiece, to your skin. You may feel a very slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band, which will soon subside. Any area of your body can be treated, and typically, two to five treatments, about 1 month apart, will produce the desired results. Treatments usually take 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. You can see some improvement with each treatment, but it’s common for your response to be slightly different to each treatment. The procedure is non-invasive and gentle with virtually no down time. You may even apply foundation or concealer immediately after treatment.
