Broad Band Light
Your face is often what people first notice about you. Unfortunately, it's also one of the main areas of your body that immediately gives away your age. Years of unprotected sun exposure, harsh cleansers and the process of aging, can do a number on your skin, making it look dull and wrinkled. Thankfully, there's a skin treatment that can reduce the appearance of damage and subtract years from your complexion
BBL™ Broad Band Light therapy, also known as Intense Pulsed Light therapy or the photo facial, uses cutting edge technology to produce younger looking skin that's firmer, and more even in tone and texture. With little recovery time and no surgery, BBL™ offers a safe, FDA-cleared option for sun damage, anti-aging, and skin rejuvenation
BBL Laser Skin Tightening
Simply Beautiful Medspa offers BBL SkinTyte™ from Sciton – an advanced technology for laser skin tightening. BBL stands for “Broadband Light,” a cutting edge development in laser treatments that can achieve non-surgical skin tightening of large areas with no downtime.
SkinTyte utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue while protecting the entire treated area with sapphire contact cooling. Targeted heating causes soft tissue coagulation and collagen contraction. This process initiates the body’s natural healing process, resulting in a firmer, more youthful skin appearance. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months.
BBL Acne Treatment
Acne is a disorder resulting from the action of hormones and other substances on the skin's oil glands, sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) are the anaerobic bacterium that causes acne. Severe acne can lead to permanent scarring. ThermaScan’s infrared energy at a 1319 nm wavelength and BBL’s 420 nm wavelength allow controlled heating of sub-epidermal layers of the skin. The pulse duration and high scattering coefficient limit the heated region to a uniform thin layer at the epidermal-dermal boundary. With proper treatment, the procedure will lead to collagen remodeling, proliferation of active fibroblasts, and treating over-acting sebaceous glands that result in the reduction of acne and improve acne scarring non-ablatively. For a more dramatic improvement, skin resurfacing using Contour TRL, ProFractional, or ProFractional-XC at a 2940 nm wavelength is highly recommended. The wound-healing process produces fibroblasts that generate new collogen, plumping the skin and correcting skin imperfections.
Laser Vein Treatment
Our vascular laser treatments, using the Sciton Profile laser, can eliminate or improve the appearance of unsightly veins, telangiectasia, rosacea & redness. All skin areas can be treated. Popular areas for laser vein treatments are the face, neck, chest, and legs.
ProFractional is Sciton’s solution for achieving excellent resurfacing results with minimal downtime. Unlike full field resurfacing which removes the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body’s wound healing response, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. The benefits of ProFractional include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and tunable results that can range from subtle to dramatic.
ProFractional utilizes a 250 µm spot size and offers a range of treatment densities from 1.5% to 30% coverage. ProFractional-XC utilizes a 430 µm spot size and predefined treatment densities for greater speed. ProFractional-XC also provides the ability to add depth-selectable tissue coagulation for enhanced collagen remodeling.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser or light energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin in hair follicles and converted to heat, diffusing to and injuring stem cells in the bulb and bulge. Effective hair reduction can only be achieved during the active growth phase and hair reduction is considered permanent when a significant amount of hair does not return for a period of time longer than the complete growth cycle. After a series of treatments, most hair is permanently removed. However, if hair does regrow it will be finer and lighter than before.
