Best facial treatment for aging skin

What is

BroadBand Light in Dubai

The BroadBand Light (BBL®) from Sciton offers a gentle, non-intrusive method employing pulsed light for clearer, more youthful skin. This treatment directs light pulses into the skin’s deepest layers, aiding in diminishing hyperpigmentation, revitalizing your skin, and enhancing your body’s innate defenses against aging signs.

During your first consultation with our medical aesthetician we’ll assess your skin and craft a personalized treatment strategy tailored to achieve your skincare aspirations!

For substantial and enduring outcomes, a series of 4 BBL treatments is recommended initially, followed by biannual sessions conducted by our skilled practitioners to sustain your results.


How it works

One of the most promising LED light therapy treatments available, Broadband Light utilizes intense pulsed light to revitalize and rejuvenate your skin, fostering a vibrant and youthful appearance. The potent energy from broadband light not only effectively targets and reduces brown sunspots and age spots but also exhibits the ability to modify the cellular DNA linked to aging. The outcome is a more youthful and radiant complexion. This non-invasive therapy is also beneficial for addressing moles, skin irregularities, acne, and rosacea. It’s known for its minimal downtime or often no downtime at all. While facial treatment is common, this procedure is versatile and can also be applied to areas like the chest, back, arms, and hands.

It’s crucial to understand that BBL isn’t a laser treatment – it operates through intense pulsed light, which we can filter in various ways to address a wide range of skin conditions.

What to expect

What to expect?

Before commencing your treatment, we’ll administer a topical anesthetic and possibly a cooling gel. For eye protection, you’ll be provided with safety glasses to safeguard your eyes during the procedure. You might notice occasional flashes of light, but rest assured, these won’t cause harm to your eyes. As the BBL device is passed over the targeted area, you may experience a sensation of warmth. Although generally not painful, there might be slight discomfort in more sensitive areas, like the upper lip.

The duration of the BBL treatment varies depending on the area and specific concern being addressed. Typically, a single session lasts from a few minutes to a maximum of half an hour. After completion, we’ll apply moisturizer and sunscreen to soothe and shield your skin.

After treatment


While some patients might witness remarkable improvements after a single BBL session, such outcomes are rare, and we refrain from guaranteeing them. BBL efficiently addresses various concerns over multiple sessions, including vascular lesions (like small blood vessels), pigmented lesions (such as freckles and age spots), loose skin, and uneven skin texture.

The reason why a solitary BBL treatment isn’t sufficient lies in the accumulation of skin pigment due to factors like sun exposure, hormones, environmental elements, and scarring. Resolving layers of accumulated pigment requires multiple sessions.

Given continued exposure to these factors post-BroadBand Light treatment, new pigment accumulation cannot be entirely prevented. Consequently, to maintain your achieved results, annual BBL sessions are advised.

Frequently Asked Questions

BBL doesn’t follow a one-time approach. Although the treatment plan will be tailored to your specific requirements, we usually suggest four treatments annually.

BBL (BroadBand Light) treatment can be used on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands, to address issues such as sun damage, pigmentation irregularities, acne, rosacea, fine lines, and more.

After the procedure, you might notice redness in and around the treated area. Additionally, there could be mild swelling for a day or two. Nonetheless, you can comfortably apply makeup, resume work, and carry on with your regular activities immediately after your appointment.

The treatment is considered safe for patients with fair, untanned skin. However, due to melanin’s light absorption, patients with olive or brown skin may face potential risks such as burning, hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, or scarring. For those with more melanin, safer alternatives for skin rejuvenation might include chemical peels or specific laser treatments.

Broadband light therapy results can vary depending on individual skin conditions, lifestyle factors, and skincare habits. Typically, results can last for several months to a year after completing a recommended series of treatments. Maintenance sessions may be advised to sustain and maximize the results over time. Regular skincare routines and sun protection contribute significantly to prolonging the benefits of broadband light therapy.

It’s crucial to avoid sun exposure and consistently apply a high SPF sunscreen before and in-between treatments.
