SCiTON BBL™ AND LASER SKIN TREATMENTS
Using nothing but light, heat and lasers, Imagine Aesthetics can remove skin spots, improve skin texture and tone, remove hair, treat spider veins, and more.
Your BBL™/Laser Consultation
When you come in for your initial consultation, Dr. Nordberg will perform a thorough evaluation of your skin and discuss your goals for treatment. Using this information, we will develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results.
Non-invasive laser treatments work by using energy to break apart pigmented cells and stimulating collagen production to give you smoother more youthful skin.
Sciton Lasers are the best line, spot and hair removal lasers available, and have been the industry standard for exceptional quality for decades.
BROADBAND LIGHT TREATMENTS
Our practice offers patients non-invasive skin treatments using the most advanced technology available. The Sciton BBL™ BroadBand Light device can treat brown spots, red spots/vessels, acne, pigmented lesions, and vascular conditions. It can also give you firmer skin with improved texture, remove unwanted hair, and treat spider veins. Using a broad range of wavelengths, Dr. Leif Nordberg can accurately and precisely target different skin conditions with one incredible platform.
HOW IT WORKS
The Sciton BBL™ device works by using low-frequency thermal energy to gently heat the skin. Dr. Nordberg adjusts the settings on the platform to target specific cells within the skin.
BBL™ uses dual lamp technology to deliver light energy in pulses. Each pulse is cooled to ensure your comfort during treatment. By penetrating deep into the skin, we can target and treat a wide range of skin conditions caused by aging and sun exposure in a safe and effective manner.
BBL treatments have been shown to rejuvenate skin, turning on longevity genes which are turned off with age, and if maintained can halt the visible aging process. Ask Dr. Nordberg about the science out of Stanford University showing the regenerative effects of BBL.
BROWN AND RED SPOT REDUCTION
BBL treatments are used to treat brown spots and red/purple vessels that appear with age/sun exposure. As mentioned above, BBL heats the pigments and they are gradually eliminated from the skin. What is left is clearer skin with improved tone and texture.
Our Sciton Erbium laser is very effective at reducing acne scarring and wrinkles appearing with age. This laser can be used as a light laser peel, fractional laser (acne scarring), or for deeper resurfacing to get maximal improvement in wrinkles like smoker’s lines around the mouth. The laser has an excellent side effect profile, is very effective and produces excellent results.
If unwanted hair is annoying you, why not have it permanently removed?
When the BBL™ laser is calibrated to target melanin in hair follicles, the bulbs of individual hairs are injured, effectively stopping their growth. After receiving several treatments, most patients do not experience regrowth of hair in the treatment area.
Spider veins may appear as we age for a variety of reasons including heredity. You can reduce their appearance with BBL treatments or injections, and enjoy wearing shorts again.
LASER SKIN TREATMENTS
For skin that not only looks younger, but is younger, laser treatments are very effective. The Sciton erbium laser offers non-invasive as well as deeper resurfacing which treats poor texture/tone, wrinkles and rejuvenates the skin. The profractional laser gives deeper resurfacing results with minimal down-time and can be combined with a BBL for outstanding results.
Resurfacing can be done as a nanolaser peel, microlaser peel, or deeper resurfacing with the TRL handpiece. Fractional laser resurfacing is also a routine treatment offered at Imagine Aesthetics and has the advantage of deeper treatment with minimal down-time. The treatment is comfortable for most people.
Laser treatments focus a single wavelength of light onto one type of tissue in the skin, heating the cells, and causing skin tightening and blemish removal. The laser and BBL can make scars less visible.
The procedure gently removes outer, damaged layers of skin, allowing younger, undamaged skin to take its place. Advanced laser skin treatments can have dramatic results, giving you a smoother, more youthful appearance. Dr. Leif O. Nordberg can evaluate your skin and cosmetic goals to determine whether a laser resurfacing treatment at our Stamford, CT, office is right for you.
