And now, thanks to the experts at the Key Laser Institute, Portland area patients now have access to this state-of-the-art system and top-quality expertise. 

Areas of Concern

The Sciton BroadBand Light machine is unique in that it uses intense pulsed light to rejuvenate the targeted areas. It is not a laser treatment, instead using a broad spectrum of light that can be filtered differently in order to treat different skin conditions. Some of these include:
• Age spots
• Sun damage
• Redness
• Broken facial vessels
• Wrinkles
• Dull skin
• Rosacea
• Freckles & birthmarks

Before Your BBL Treatments

Before undergoing broadband light therapy, individuals should have a comprehensive understanding of the treatment plan. Non-invasive methods of skin treatment are used to make broadband light therapy safe for any skin type. As long as the patient has healthy skin, intense pulsed light treatments can address various skin concerns such as sagging skin, sun spots, small facial veins, aging skin, sun damage, pigmented lesions, brown spots, and uneven skin tones.

Prior to the procedure, it’s crucial to consult with Key Laser to assess skin suitability and discuss expectations. Patients should anticipate multiple sessions for optimal results, typically spaced several weeks apart. Before the treatment, patients may need to avoid sun exposure and certain skincare products that could make the skin more sensitive. 

During Broadband Light Laser Treatment

During the procedure, the targeted areas will be cleaned, and protective eyewear will be provided. Once properly sterilized, the intense pulsed light will be moved across the facial area to gently heat the skin cells. Patients might experience a warming sensation or minimal discomfort, but numbing creams or cooling gel may be utilized to minimize any discomfort. The BBL platform has several attachments, each of which has a unique function to target specific concerns. These include:

Different Variations of BBL Treatment

  •  Forever Bare BBL™ removes unwanted hair, targeting hair follicles to remove hair comfortably and safely.
