Procedure Body BBL Sciton

Sun spots, acne, hyperpigmentation, and burst blood vessels are among the most common complexion imperfections. One of the most effective ways to address these issues and enjoy more flawless skin is with broadband light (BBL) treatment.

BBL by Sciton® is an innovative aesthetic option at The Heights Plastic Surgery Med Spa in San Antonio that can help you achieve your best skin on both the face and body.

How Does BroadBand Light Treatment Work?

BBL treatments use intense pulses of broadband light to gently heat the cells in your upper layers of skin. When applied to targeted areas, this broadband heat stimulates the cells and kickstarts the regeneration process.

Skin cell regeneration is essential for building a healthy new layer of skin, especially wherever damaged cells are present. When your skin’s cells regenerate, they can replace the dead or damaged skin cells with fresh, healthy cells.

After just one treatment with BBL by Sciton, you can see a major improvement in your overall complexion. Your skin should feel smoother, with reduced redness and smaller, tighter pores.

With regular BBL sessions, you can resolve deeper skincare issues like moderate signs of aging, dark sun spots, and severe pigmentation concerns. When used in conjunction with other skin treatments, BBL procedures can improve your skin on both your face and body.

Various BBL treatment options are available at The Heights Plastic Surgery Med Spa in San Antonio.

BBL Corrective

BBL Corrective is a broadband treatment that repairs pigmentation issues and creates a more even skin tone. At The Heights Plastic Surgery Med Spa, our team uses BBL Corrective not only to resolve age spots and sun damage, but also as a treatment for scars after plastic surgery by our renowned board-certified plastic surgeons.

The BBL Corrective treatment uses pulses of broadband light to directly target damaged skin cells that have produced too much pigmentation. Depending on where your pigmentation issues fall on the Fitzpatrick scale, your scarring may look either red or brown in color.

BBL Corrective can remove this discoloration and restore your natural skin tone.

Forever Young BBL

The BBL Forever Young treatment is a broadband light procedure designed for age-related changes. While there are plenty of over-the-counter products that promise to address these concerns, few of them actually deliver real results. BBL Forever Young treatment works beneath your skin’s surface to make changes at the cellular level.

When you receive BBL Forever Young, your skin’s deeper layers can begin a strong regeneration process. BBL by Sciton stimulates ongoing rejuvenation, creating new skin cells and promoting new collagen production. The result is more youthful-looking skin with reduced fine lines, pore size, and age spots.

Forever Clear BBL

Do you struggle with acne breakouts or blemishes? You may benefit from Forever Clear BBL, an innovative approach to acne breakouts. Using cutting-edge technology, Forever Clear BBL by Sciton dives deep beneath the skin’s surface to target acne at the source.

Forever Clear BBL treatment uses a three-step process to target and eliminate bacteria beneath your skin. First, blue BBL light is administered to target bacteria deep within the pores. Next, yellow BBL light is applied to minimize the skin inflammation caused by acne breakouts.

The final step uses infrared light to stimulate your skin’s natural healing response for an enhanced result.

Forever Bare BBL

If you have unwanted hair on your face, legs, underarms, or other areas, Forever Bare BBL can help. BBL by Sciton can eliminate the need for shaving, tweezing, and waxing by using broadband light to destroy your hair follicles. Forever Bare BBL can effectively disable your hair’s growth and lead to smooth, hairless skin.

How does this work? With strong pulses of broadband light, Forever Bare directly targets hair follicles in the active stage of their growth cycle. This light heats the follicle to a level it cannot survive, destroying it and preventing further growth.


SkinTyte is a unique BBL treatment that can be used to tighten loose skin. As you age, your skin loses critical collagen. This can cause it to sag, especially around the face, stomach, and arms.

BBL SkinTyte combats sagging and loose skin by using infrared broadband light to heat the skin cells and produce a tightening effect. When these intense pulses of light are applied to the lower layers of the skin, they can cause an increase in collagen production that firms the skin and makes it appear more tight and youthful.


Some common questions clients have include:

The number of necessary treatments varies from person to person. Your laser technician will assess your unique needs and design a customized treatment plan to meet them.

BBL procedures are very comfortable and gentle, but if you have concerns, you can ask for a topical numbing agent to be applied to your skin before the process starts. Some people feel warmth emitted from the device during their procedure. Many say they feel a slight “rubber band snapping” sensation when the light pulses hit the skin.

You will also be given protective eyewear to wear during treatment, protecting your eyes from the intense broadband light.

After your BBL treatment, you will be able to return home and resume most of your normal activities. The only recommendation is to avoid potential irritants to the skin, such as direct sunlight and exfoliating products.

You may also have redness in your treatment areas for several hours to days after treatment, but this gradually subsides.

BBL by Sciton is a completely non-invasive treatment. The simplicity of these treatments minimizes the need for downtime or recovery afterward. In fact, most people return to their regular routine immediately after their session.

This includes going to work, running errands, or caring for family. During this time, you will need to practice proper aftercare by protecting your skin from direct or prolonged sunlight and applying sunscreen in case of exposure. Your laser technician can give you more information about what BBL recovery entails.
