Broad Band Light Rejuvenation 

The Sciton BBL Photo Rejuvenation is one of the most advanced FDA approved Broad Band Light Systems on the market today. Considered the golden standard in the industry, this treatment uses the power of pulsed light to treat unwanted pigmented lesions (brown spots) and vascularity (redness). The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin, which is then absorbed by the targeted areas to stimulate and generate new collagen. This process rejuvenates the skin, blending its color and texture and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.

youthful glow


Halo by Sciton is the first and only hybrid fractional laser in the world that combines deep dermal rejuvenation with surface renewal for a combined synergistic effect you can’t get with any other treatment. Over time, skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure, environmental damage, genetics and the body’s natural aging process. As a result, damage shows up in the form of sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and lost elasticity. Halo precisely targets this damage to correct skin discoloration, enlarged pores, sun damage and fine lines, all without serious downtime! Previous lasers couldn’t effectively remove this damage, because the treatment was either too shallow or too deep. Halo eliminates years of damage by precisely targeting pigment at just the right depth. A consult is required prior to your Halo procedure. Everyone’s results are different. It is common to experience heat and redness immediately after, along with some swelling. Swelling varies person to person. As your skin purges, you will notice an almost “sandpapery” effect that feels rough to the touch. Most people feel fully healed within 7-10 days.

What is a laser treatment?

The Sciton Laser produces a clean, layer-by-layer vaporization of skin in areas where there are pigmentation problems, fine lines, and wrinkles. It eliminates old, tired-looking layers of skin and rejuvenates the collagen layer, which promotes the formation of new, healthy skin cells.

Will laser treatments damage my skin?

For the most part, our patients experience very minimal side effects with the Sciton laser technology, although it can vary from patient to patient. Those most commonly experienced are redness and local swelling of the skin, such as that of a sunburn.

Is it safe to opt for laser treatment to get rid of skin marks?

Sciton laser treatments produce lasting results that eliminate or minimize hyperpigmentation, sun spots, and discoloration. In addition, it serves to minimize scarring.

Can you have too many laser treatments?

tWe will work together to ensure your treatment schedule is both safe and produces maximum results. A laser is a powerful tool which when used in excess can harm the skin’s sensitive layers. When the device passes over skin too frequently, your skin is unable to heal promptly and will produce scarring. We understand it’s difficult to wait, but believe us, the results are always worth your time.

What are the steps for getting laser hair removal treatments?

Laser hair removal usually requires two to six treatments. The interval between treatments will vary depending on the location. On areas where hair grows quickly, such as the upper lip, the treatment might be repeated in four to eight weeks. On areas of slow hair growth, such as the back, the treatment might be every 12 to 16 weeks.

For each treatment you’ll wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser beam. An assistant might shave the site again if necessary. The doctor might apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to reduce any discomfort during treatment

What are the advantages of laser treatment?

Laser treatments have allowed us to accomplish skin resurfacing, anti-aging impacts, collagen restoration, hair removal and so much more. The best part – they are lasting results. Depending on the treatment schedule necessary to achieve your desired results, maintainence can be as little as a few times over the course of several years!

Is it safe to pull out loose hairs after laser hair removal?

You should not pull out loose hairs after laser hair removal. Laser hair removal targets the hair follicle to permanently remove hair from the body. For successful results the follicle has to be present so the laser can target it. Waxing, plucking or threading removes the root of the hair follicle.

How do I take care of my skin after laser resurfacing?

Staying out of the sun is the number one most important rule after your treatment. Clean the treated areas two times a day with a gentle soap like Cetaphil. Apply protective skin care treatments like aquaphor.
After healing, you’ll need to use sunscreen, particularly one that’s formulated for the sensitive, rejuvenated skin on your face. Every day. No exceptions! 

Does the skin darken after laser treatment for pigmentation?

This is totally normal. You may also see some of your pigmentation spots (freckles) turn darker. This is normal and the pigment naturally shed off the skins surface within seven to 14 days depending on your skin cell turnover.

How risky is laser hair removal? What are the side effects?

Laser hair removal can be dangerous in inexperienced hands. Burns, permanent changes to your skin color, and scars can occur. Good news! Chavi is extremely skilled in using lasers and has in-depth knowledge of the skin.

You can expect all of these things after treatment:

  • Mild swelling around the hair follicles.
  • Pigment changes may occur, especially in those with darker skin – these changes are usually temporary.
  • Slight redness of the skin.
  • Temporary irritation resulting in blistering, crusting, scarring or other changes in skin texture.
