Fighting Sun Damage with BBL

It is possible to restore luminous, glowing skin. BroadBand Light by Sciton® is the world’s most powerful IPL (intense pulsed light) device available. We are excited to offer this intense pulsed light technology at our practice in Nashville. If you’re unhappy with sun damage to your skin, we have you covered with our RG BroadBand Light (BBL) skin rejuvenation. 

What Can BroadBand Light Technology Correct?

At RG Plastic Surgery, we tailor treatments for your skin type. The most commonly treated areas are places that see the most sunlight, including the face, neck, chest, shoulders, and the backs of the hands. BBL can address the following concerns:

  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Pigmentation lesions such as age spots and freckles
  • Vascular lesions such as small blood vessels and broken capillaries
  • Acne redness
  • Dull skin
  • Sagging skin
  • Rosacea 
  • Skin laxity
  • Birthmarks

How BroadBand Light Works

The BroadBand Light technology uses broad-spectrum visible and infrared light to target the outermost layers of the skin with heat. 

The heat is absorbed and cells are triggered to create new collagen and elastin. This results in skin that is clearer and more radiant. 

BroadBand Light vs. Intense Pulsed Light

BroadBand Light and intense pulsed light are both light-based therapies to improve the skin’s appearance, but there are some key differences to be aware of. BroadBand Light can be personalized more, is more comfortable, and also triggers collagen production. Check out more on this in our blog post at this link.

The Versatility of BroadBand Light

RG Corrective BBL

RG Corrective BBL is an ideal option if you’re bothered by skin issues such as pigmentation or rosacea. This treatment has been developed to reduce unwanted melanin and remove the fine vessels that cause redness. Your skin will appear smoother, clearer, more even, healthier, more radiant with Corrective BBL. 

RG Forever Young BBL 

Forever Young BBL has been clinically proven not only to improve the appearance of sun damage, but to also fight the signs of aging by reducing lines and wrinkles, firming up lax skin, and addressing deep tissues at the molecular level in order to target skin molecules that are associated with aging. 

RG Forever Clear BBL 

If you want to treat oily skin, acne, and large pores, RG Forever Clear BBL may be perfect for you. This treatment works by kick-starting your body’s healing functionality, which renews cells for healthier, clearer skin. Three levels of light energy (blue, yellow, and infrared) are utilized to improve the skin. 

RG Forever Bare BBL

As the safest, quickest, and most comfortable laser hair removal technology, Forever Bare BBL emits a low fluence in multiple pulses, protecting the skin while performing effective hair removal. Its customizable dual light delivery also helps with sensitive skin, and hair reduction is typically 90% to 95% permanent. 

RG SkinTyte BBL

SkinTyte™ utilizes selective thermolysis, a process by which infrared light is able to deeply heat dermal collagen while also protecting the surface of the skin and keeping it cool. This treatment targets sagging and loose skin, sun damage, wrinkles, discoloration, splotches, cellulite, stretch marks, and darkened scar areas.

More About Forever Young BBL Sciton Laser Treatments

You may be curious if Forever Young BBL actually makes your skin look younger — and if so, how it works. 

The answer is yes. With the appropriate amount of treatments, Forever Young BBL can give your skin a much younger appearance. The effects of this treatment on patients were studied over the course of ten years, and the conclusion at the end of the decade was that the doctors determined the patients to look 11 years younger than they actually were. This study was one of the longest ever to reveal the results of a skin treatment, and one of the most successful.

Forever Young targets the uppermost layer of skin and deep tissues at the molecular level to address the molecules that are connected to aging. The BBL light actually alters the underlying cells to change them to a “younger” state. The long-term benefits have been proven in most skin types, except for skin type 6 and those with tattoos in the area. 

Forever Young BBL is much more than just a simple beauty treatment. It’s a way to prevent age from creeping in. 

Preparing for Your BroadBand Light Treatment

  • Avoid or minimize sun exposure for one month before BBL treatment
  • Do not have tanned skin at the time of your BBL treatment 
  • Refrain from taking antibiotics and photosensitizing medications that make you sun-sensitive 
  • Avoid Retin-A or retinol products for one week before a BBL treatment

What to Expect During a BBL Treatment

Before the procedure begins, your skin will be cleansed, a cooling gel will be applied, and we will give you protective eye shields. We can also apply numbing cream if you prefer. 

The BroadBand handheld instrument will be passed over the skin, emitting fast pulses of light energy as it goes. Most patients find the sensation very tolerable, comparing it to a rubber band being snapped on the skin. Treatments take approximately 20 minutes, but this will vary from patient to patient. 

During your consultation, we will go over the amount of BroadBand Light sessions you will need. Everyone is different, but in general we recommend 3-5 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart.


Patients are happy about the fact that they can typically apply makeup and return to regular activities fairly soon following a BBL treatment. Some have skin redness and/or a tingly sensation for several hours, but typically there is no downtime. Depending on the type of BBL treatment you get (especially if you were treated for pigmentation), you may see some darkening of the skin which will fade or flake off within the week. Avoiding excessive sun exposure and wearing sunscreen after your BBL treatment for a few weeks is important. Aggressive sun protection is critical, and you will also need to carefully follow the instructions we give you for home care.
