What Is BBL?

BBL stands for BroadBand Light.  The BBL Hero by Sciton, is the fastest, most powerful, advanced and versatile Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system on the market.  BBL treatment is a cutting-edge solution for addressing various skin concerns and enhancing the skin’s natural beauty. This revolutionary treatment harnesses the power of high-intensity pulses of visible light to target specific skin issues, providing remarkable results without the need for surgery or downtime.

How does IPL Work?

Ayana Dermatology & Aesthetics showcases transformative skin enhancement with BBL, addressing various concerns for radiant results.

Light energy penetrates just below the skin surface, targeting either the melanin (brown spots) or blood vessels (redness and rosacea).  The body then naturally removes this damaged tissue producing clear, smoother and healthier appearing skin.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, also known as photofacial, is a non-invasive cosmetic skin treatment that uses high-intensity pulses of visible light to improve the color, texture, and overall appearance of the skin through a non-invasive procedure. BBL treatment will selectively destroy melanin (pigment) and hemoglobin (red blood cells) to produce clearer, more beautiful skin.  It can help reduce the visible damage caused by sun exposure, minimize or remove age spots, freckles, and unwanted hair, clear facial redness and rosacea, and improve the appearance of scars and vascular lesions, such as spider telangiectasias and broken facial veins.


  • Sun Damage and Photoaging: BBL effectively targets pigmented cells, breaking them down and revealing a more even, clearer skin tone.  It improves the appearance of sun-damaged skin, including brown spots, age spots, freckles, and uneven pigmentation caused by long-term sun exposure.
  • Rosacea and Facial Redness: BBL treatments reduce the redness and visible blood vessels associated with rosacea, a chronic skin condition characterized by facial flushing and persistent redness.
  • Vascular Lesions: BBL can effectively target and treat various vascular lesions, such as spider veins, broken capillaries, and cherry angiomas.
  • Acne and Acne Pigmentation: BBL therapy can be used to manage active acne and reduce the appearance of acne discoloration by targeting bacteria in the skin, reducing inflammation, and stimulating collagen production.
  • Uneven Skin Tone and Texture: BBL treatments can improve overall skin tone and texture by reducing pigmentation irregularities, fine lines, and mild wrinkles, resulting in a smoother and more even complexion.
  • Hair Removal: BBL can be used for long-term hair reduction by targeting the pigment in hair follicles, leading to their gradual destruction and inhibited regrowth.

It’s important to note that BBL treatments may not be suitable for everyone, and the effectiveness of the treatment can vary depending on individual factors such as skin type, condition severity, and response to treatment. Consulting with a dermatologist is crucial to assess your specific concerns, determine if BBL is appropriate for you, and develop a customized treatment plan.

My experience at Ayana has been nothing short of amazing! I came to Dr. Levi for hair loss, and she took the time to really listen to me and discussed all treatment options with me in detail. Not only do I feel cared for by everyone at the office, but I have also seen significant improvement in my hair growth using Dr. Levi's medical advice and treatment approach. Go to Ayana if you want results and the best care in South FL!

I am from Miami Beach and now live in Orlando. I am frequently in Fort Lauderdale because that is where my kids live. I have been to many dermatologists over the years. Dr. Levi is by far the best dermatologist I have ever seen. Her attention to detail is incredible. She is highly intelligent and is great at communicating what is going on. I can't put into words how great of a doctor she is. highly recommend her!

Frequently asked questions

  • The level of discomfort experienced during BBL treatments can vary from person to person. While some individuals may find BBL treatments relatively comfortable, others may experience mild to moderate discomfort. The sensation can be described as a snapping or rubber band-like feeling on the skin, accompanied by a warming or stinging sensation. However, the discomfort is generally well-tolerated by most individuals, and the procedure is typically brief.

    The following measures are taken to ensure comfort during the BBL treatment:

    Cooling Gel: Prior to the BBL treatment, a cooling gel is applied to the skin. This gel helps to cool the skin’s surface and provides a protective barrier, reducing heat sensation and potential discomfort.

    Built-in Cooling Systems: The Sciton BBL device has built-in cooling mechanisms, with a chilled crystal tip for contact cooling, which helps to cool skin during treatment, further reducing discomfort.

    Temperature Sensors:  The Sciton BBL device has built-in temperature sensors to provide real time feedback during treatments. This is combined with an infrared thermometer used to gauge the skin temperature and effectively control heating.
