Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)ntense pulsed light, also known as IPL, Photorejuvenation or Photo- facial, is a non-invasive treatment that is used to help correct skin damage without disrupting the skin surface. Bay Dermatology Centre uses the Sciton BBL technology to deliver Intense Pulsed Light safely and effectively to treat a wide variety of concerns: broken capillaries, blotchy skin, brown discolouration, age or "liver" spots, freckles, flushing or rosacea, redness, enlarged pores, mild wrinkles and scarring. The face and other areas, such as the hands, chest, arms or shoulders may be effectively treated. IPL is fast and virtually painless with results that are often dramatic.

BBL Overview

The innovative BBL module extends the versatility of the JOULE platform with one-of-a-kind flash lamp technology, interchangeable Smart Filters, Finesse Adapters, and precision thermoelectric cooling.

BBL uses advanced dual-lamp technology with each lamp supplying half of the energy needed during treatment. This results in unsurpassed lamp lifetimes and unlimited pulses during warranty.

Its broad range of wavelengths allow targeted treatment for many skin conditions without the need for additional handpieces. Its flexible Finesse Adapters enable treatment of hard to reach areas, producing evenly treated skin.

With its user-friendly features, superior results, and no consumables, BBL is the most complete and versatile broadband light system in its class.

Science & Technology

Dual-Lamp Technology and No Consumables

BBLs' dual-lamp technology is designed with each lamp supplying half of the energy during a pulse, this results in an unprecedented delivery of hundreds of thousands of pulses in the lifetime of the BBL handpiece.

With the long-lasting lifetime and durability, BBLs offers unlimited pulses under warranty and no consumables.

Adjustable Cooling

BBL employs an integrated thermoelectric monitoring assembly enabling its sapphire crystal and sensors to continually and precisely maintain temperatures from 0 °C – 30 °C with adjustability of every degree in between.

Treatment Speed

With a large 15 X 45 mm spot size and rapid repetition rate users enjoy an efficient patient throughput. Since each pulse is cooled to the selected temperature, patients enjoy a comfortable treatment.

Square-wave Energy Delivery

BBL delivers a pulse to tissue with precise on and off timing with controlled irradiance.

BBL’s pulse envelop is adjusted ten times within each pulse to achieve consistent and efficient results.

Many systems deliver only single or double pulses with extended low power tails below therapeutic levels resulting in higher than necessary fluence requirement.

BBL's square wave pulsing does not create a low energy tail and waste of energy.
