Sciton® BBL™ Reviews
"Halo+Zo+Angelina= beautiful skin! - I have been seeing Angelina for the past year and a half and I have the best skin of my life! She truly is my “skin coach”! Her knowledge of the Zo skin care products and all of the treatments that she offers is bar none. I completely and totally trust Angelina and because of her my skin is glowing! I have had two Halo procedures which have improved the quality of my skin dramatically. Goodbye fine lines and dark spots! Angelina helped me choose which treatment would be best for me. I decided on Halo over BBL to achieve the results that I wanted. She is great at explaining everything to you and making you feel comfortable always. I get regular facials with Angelina which are wonderful and keep my skin looking its best. The Zo skin care products are incredible! Angelina is great about keeping me on a regimen that works for me. If you are looking to have great skin and a great experience from a professional that really cares you couldn’t be in better hands!"- H. / RealSelf / Mar 19, 2019
"BBL Treatment - “Bye, Bye freckles, rosacea, broken blood vessels & fine lines!” I had no idea I would love my results so much thanks to Franki Lambiotte, the esthetician!! She was so kind to me and answered all my questions throughout the entire process! I saw results in about a week!

The Broad Band Light technology can be performed in Dr. Bridges' office without any anesthesia. After the patient’s consultation, a team member will develop a treatment plan with the various BBL applications to target the patient’s skin problems (acne, lesions, etc.). The technician will adjust the settings for each condition that is being treated before passing the laser over the patient’s clean, dry skin while the eyes are protected from the light. The treatment time will vary based on the number of treatments being performed and the size of the area being treated, but most BBL procedures take under one hour.
What to Expect
After the treatment is completed, the technician will apply a soothing ointment to the treated skin and go over the patient’s aftercare instructions. The patient will be able to leave as soon as they want after their appointment and resume their normal activities. Patients will see some results right after their treatment, but results will improve over the next 2 – 6 weeks, and most patients will get their best results from repeated treatments. Patients should talk to Dr. Bridges about pre-booking a series of appointments to ensure they get the most out of their treatment.
