BroadBand Light (BBL) - HERO
The photo-thermal energy delivered from the BBL gently heats the upper layers of your skin which targets pigmentation and redness to take years off the face, neck, hands or almost any other part of the body, often after just one treatment. This treatment can be used alone or as the foundation for other light-based treatments.
A unique 3-step acne treatment that utilises blue, yellow, and infrared lights to clear acne along with the damage it has caused. Its light energy reaches deep into the skin to target the sebaceous glands and reduce future outbreaks.
Clinically proven to delay the signs of ageing by changing the expression of genes associated with ageing process. With regular treatments, your skin will look healthier, brighter and much younger.
SkinTyte uses infra-red light to deeply heat dermal collagen while simultaneously cooling the skin to protect the epidermis. With this advanced technique, the treatment initiates the body’s natural healing process which safely treats loose skin to produce firmer, healthier and younger looking skin. This treatment can be performed alone or to enhance your Forever Young treatments.
With the new HERO technology from BBL, pigmentation and redness are safely and quickly treated for more visibly younger looking skin.
Your personal consultation
During your consultation at The Skin Boutique, we will discuss your skin condition and the potential causes of your pigmentation. We will also need to speak about your medical history to ensure that you are suitable for Sitcon BBL treatment, including past treatments and any medications you are taking. Good candidates for the procedure are men and women who want a smoother, clearer complexion and have realistic expectations for their treatment.
If you are suitable for BBL treatment, we will develop a plan for treatment that suits your needs and goals. We will endeavour to provide all the information you need, including how to care for your treated areas afterwards. You can ask any questions during your meeting with us to ensure you are prepared and know what to expect before and after the procedure.
About this treatment
What to expect
Sitcon BBL technology is known for its efficiency and high-quality results. On the day of your treatment, your clinician may apply topical numbing to help you have a comfortable experience. Patients will also be given protective eyewear to protect their eyes.
A gel will be applied to your treatment areas and your clinician will use the Sitcon BBL applicator to administer pulses of light into your skin. Adjustable wavelength filters mean that your treatment can be customised to treat your specific skin concerns and achieve fast, consistent results. The precise light pulses will target your areas of pigmentation and damaged skin cells, triggering your body’s natural healing responses. This process also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which helps your tissue remain strong and flexible.
You can expect the procedure to take 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the specifics of your treatment plan. The severity of your skin damage and pigmentations will impact how many treatments you require.
After your Sitcon BBL treatment, your skin pigmentations may appear slightly darker, and you may have some redness and swelling for several hours. These effects will slowly fade as your skin rejuvenates, leaving you with a brighter, smoother complexion.
Sitcon BBL is a non-invasive and gentle treatment with virtually no downtime. You can return to your daily activities as normal, but it is a good idea to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen while your treated skin heals. This will help you avoid skin irritation. We will give you specific aftercare instructions to aid in the healing process and help you achieve a satisfying end result.
