How Does Skin Tightening Work?

The Sciton BBL® Intense Pulsed Light technology offers an exciting new virtually painless method for tightening loose skin! Any skin area may be treated: face, legs, abdomen, neck and arms. A series of BBL ® light treatments are needed, each lasting about forty five minutes. No anesthetic is needed. Results develop gradually as lax collagen remodels over three to six months. The BBL ® Intense Pulsed Light stimulates collagen to remodel, realign and shorten resulting in skin tightening.


The Sciton BBL® Intense Pulsed Light technology is successful in resolving the following conditions:

  • Vascular Lesions (e.g., small blood vessels)
  • Uneven Skin Texture
  • Sun damage
  • Loss of elasticity
  • Sun spots/pigmentation
  • Rosacea/flushing
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Large pores
  • Dull-looking skin
