BBL, IPL and Laser Skin Rejuvenation
The Power of Light
The use of light based treatments is central to modern cosmetic medicine and these are at the core of the Crows Nest Cosmetic & Vein Clinic practice. The clinic has access to various laser and IPL treatments that can help in a huge variety of cosmetic problems. Often light treatments can be combined with other surgical procedures to provide even better results.
An exciting, new development at the clinic has been the purchase of the Sciton BBL and in the same machine a dual pulse width Sciton Erbium:YAG laser and now the Sciton ProFractional laser. The ProFractional is similar to other fractional lasers and is designed to reduce acne scarring, treat irregular skin pigmentation as well as sun damage and fine lines on the face. There is virtually no downtime with this treatment and, unlike other fractional laser systems, it can be performed with minimal discomfort.

IPL and BBL Treatments
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) marked the beginning of a revolution in skin care. While IPL is not a laser, it uses a number of frequencies of light to perform many tasks. The parameters of this light source can be almost infinitely varied to treat a variety of cosmetic skin problems. This ingenious device has been developed by the application of theoretical and practical knowledge of the skin and the blood vessels within the skin, a combination of science and experience, both of which are necessary to achieve good results. BBL or (Broad Band Light) is a significant advance on the IPL machines of a few years ago. The Sciton BBL, with a specially cooled crystal tip can be adapted to treat many, many problems as listed in the table below.
Further cosmetic problems that this machine can treat include facial vessels (broken capillaries over the face and nose), sun spots and age spots pigmentation on the face and the rest of the body, broken face capillaries.
Broadband light is a newer type of IPL skin rejuvenation. Usually 2-4 treatments at intervals of 1-2 weeks, no downtime is needed. BBL treatments reduce overall redness and pigmentation as well as a specific reduction of larger vessels in the face.
Radiosurgery is an exciting addition to the clinic. It provides a simple, quick way of removing many lumps and bumps from the skin, without the need for suture. Wounds heal quickly and effectively.
Laser resurfacing using the Sciton laser (combined dual pulse width erbium:YAG laser)
The ability to reduce wrinkling on the face is one of the most important uses of cosmetic lasers in medicine in the new millennium. Modern lasers, such as the carbon dioxide and erbium lasers can remove many of the creases that come with age and sun exposure. Laser skin rejuvenation can lead to a dramatic reduction in the appearance of the age of the face.
Changes in pigmentation to the face (the so-called liver spots and age spots) can also be dramatically improved with laser skin rejuvenation treatment, leaving the skin smoother.
Though there is a dramatic improvement in the appearance of the skin in the first few weeks after treatment, improvements in appearance can take place for up to six months after the procedure with increased thickness and stimulation of collagen growth in the deeper layers of the skin.
Laser skin rejuvenation of the face can also improve some types of acne scarring as well as remove much of the irregular pigmentation that occurs over the face associated with aging.
Looseness and deep wrinkling over the cheeks can be dramatically reduced using the Sciton Erbium laser while fine lines in the same areas as well as over the top and bottom lips can be substantially improved.
