It’s no secret that unprotected sun exposure will prematurely age and discolor your skin. What’s worse is that the most susceptible areas for wrinkles, freckles, redness, and uneven skin texture also tend to be the most noticeable. These include on your face, hands, neck, and chest.
Thankfully, Broad Band Light (BBL™) therapy from Sciton can restore your skin to its nature beauty. The light energy emitted from a BBL™ handpiece creates penetrating heat when applied directly to the skin. The heat absorbed in turn stimulates the skin cells to regenerate new collagen and lessens the vessels that cause redness.
