We are proud to offer Sciton Acne BBL treatments at The Dermatology Clinic. This non-invasive technology helps clear up blemishes and breakouts by targeting oil glands and acne-causing bacteria with no downtime. Many patients report seeing a noticeable decrease in visible acne after treatment. Continue reading for more detailed information about how this laser treatment works.
This three-step process delivers intense pulsed light (IPL) energy that penetrates the skin to encourage cell regeneration. First, we’ll use a blue light that targets acne-causing bacteria deep within your pores. Next, a yellow light helps reduce inflammation, which causes the redness associated with acne breakouts. Finally, an infrared light treatment helps stimulate healing and collagen production, which can promote a clearer complexion. Immediately after the procedure, you may notice some redness. However, this mild side effect usually resolves within a few hours.
Patients who have received Sciton Acne BBL treatments often report seeing clearer skin with a more youthful glow. This non-invasive procedure is fast, easy, and painless, with approval for safe use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. You should be in and out of our office in about 30 minutes.
Many patients see their acne improve after a single session; however, we recommend receiving five treatments over the course of five weeks for optimal results. In addition to reduced redness and fewer blemishes, this laser treatment can help reduce the appearance of visible pores. Following the prescribed aftercare plan and using sun protection when outdoors will help preserve your results.
This laser treatment is ideal for those who have tried various medications, creams, and procedures to treat their breakouts without success. Sciton Acne BBL is safe for healthy men and women of all ages. We can target blemishes anywhere on the body, including pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads on the face, neck, and back. Some versions of IPL treatment can also target fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars for smoother, younger-looking skin.
