Has the Fountain of Youth come to Nob Hill Medical & Aesthetics? Perhaps it has, in the form of Forever Young Broadband Light (BBL) Therapy.

Sciton BroadBand Light (BBL™) treatments can change the expression of genes associated with the aging process to more closely resemble young skin. A 2012 Stanford University study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology supports the theory that skin aging can be altered at a cellular level, rather than just a cosmetic imitation of youthful appearance.

BBL treatments are requested by patients for promoting a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. BBL targets treatment for many skin conditions including acne, pigmented lesions, vascular lesions and hair removal.

The procedure is relatively quick. Depending on the size of the skin area being treated, and the seriousness of the condition, most BBL treatments last between a few minutes to a half hour. An additional bonus of BBL is minimal recovery time. Some swelling and redness may occur, but typically subsides by the following day.

It is possible to delay skin aging with 2-4 scheduled Forever Young BBL Treatments per year. Schedule your appointment with Nob Hill Medical & Aesthetic today.

Common Questions About BBL (BroadBand Light)

What is BroadBand Light?

BroadBand Light (BBL) or Intense Pulse Light (IPL) uses a high-powered computer-controlled flashgun to deliver an intense visible, broad-spectrum pulse of light, generally in the visible spectral range of 400 to 1200 nm.

Treatments have no significant downtime and only require a brief period of reduced sun exposure before and after treatments.
