About BroadBand Light Therapy

The laser skin rejuvenation process employs regenerating technology to enhance the aesthetics of your skin and helps it to look more youthful and smoother. It works by employing therapeutic light energy that mildly heats the skin and generates collagen production. Individuals with a variety of skin conditions can benefit from this treatment, Sciton's broadband light therapy (BBL), since it works to fix unwanted freckles, rosacea, broken blood vessels, and sun damage. It can also help create a more even and smooth skin texture to generate fresh, glowing skin. BBL may be added to other aesthetic treatments to satisfy your needs and goals. Our practice, Ellsworth Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX, provides BBL at the recommendation of Dr. Warren Ellsworth IV as an innovative therapy proven to help restore our patients' confidence in their skin.

Ideal Candidates

A good candidate for BBL is anyone suffering from hyperpigmentation or unevenly textured skin. These symptoms can be due to sun damage, damaged capillaries, rosacea, or acne. BBL also helps to make the skin look younger by igniting the regeneration of collagen. Depending on the type of modality and filter that are used, BBL may be used as both a treatment and/or maintenance regimen for an array of skin conditions. Before receiving treatment, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ellsworth will help you understand how BBL technology can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Procedure Technique

Ellsworth Plastic Surgery uses the Sciton® Forever Young BBL™, an advanced device that stimulates the body's ability to regenerate new healthy skin. The Sciton Forever Young BBL technology delivers light therapy to target the effects of sun damage and age to rejuvenate your appearance. 

After creating the appropriate treatment plan, the settings of the BBL device will be adjusted to fit your needs. Before beginning the treatment, your eyes will be covered to protect them from the light of the laser. Dr. Ellsworth will then softly pass the laser over your skin while concentrating on the problem areas. The amount of time needed for the therapy will vary, depending on the skin condition and if any other treatments were included in the BBL treatment. BBL procedures can typically be completed in about an hour or less.

What to Expect

Following the therapy, a soothing cream will be applied to your skin. Dr. Ellsworth will also provide post-treatment care instructions and may advise limited sun exposure. Otherwise, patients are generally able to resume their normal daily routine. Results from BBL can be seen within 2 – 6 weeks following the initial treatment, but optimal results will normally be seen after multiple BBL treatments. Dr. Ellsworth will provide the recommended number of treatments to receive your desired outcome.
