SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL vs. Traditional Treatments: Which Reigns Supreme?


Skin treatments have evolved over the years, offering various solutions for various concerns. With the advancement of technology, newer methods like SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL have entered the scene. While traditional approaches have been trusted for years, introducing such modern treatments prompts a closer look. How does SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL stand against these time-tested methods? 


SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL utilizes broadband light technology, an intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. The science behind it is rooted in using varying wavelengths of light to target specific skin concerns at different depths.

The device emits pulses of light that penetrate the skin. These light pulses are absorbed by targeted cells with color, such as melanin in freckles and age spots or hemoglobin in blood vessels. Once absorbed, the light energy is converted to heat, which damages the targeted cells. This prompts the body’s natural healing process to start, stimulating the production of new collagen and leading to a fresher, rejuvenated appearance.

For example, when addressing sun damage or pigmented lesions, the light targets the melanin in the skin. As the melanin absorbs this light, it heats up and breaks down, eventually removed by the body’s natural processes. On the other hand, for vascular issues like rosacea or broken blood vessels, the light targets the hemoglobin in the blood. This causes the blood vessels to constrict and eventually fade.

One of the key aspects of SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL is its ability to deliver light energy tailored explicitly for each skin condition and type. This precision ensures that only the targeted areas are treated, leaving the surrounding skin untouched and undamaged. The result is an effective treatment with minimal side effects and downtime.

Traditional Skin Treatments: A Brief Overview

Skin treatments have been a cornerstone of beauty and self-care for centuries, evolving with time and adapting to the needs and preferences of societies. Traditional skin treatments, while varied, share a common goal: to rejuvenate, heal, and beautify the skin.

1.) Chemical Peels:

  • Description: A method for enhancing the skin’s look. The skin is exposed to a chemical solution that causes it to exfoliate and gradually peel off, exposing a layer of skin that is smoother and less wrinkled underneath.
  • Uses: Addressing wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, and certain types of acne.

2.) Microdermabrasion:

  • Description: A non-invasive procedure that uses tiny crystals to exfoliate the skin’s surface, removing the superficial layer of dead skin cells.
  • Uses: Treating light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks.

3.) Facials:

  • Description: A multi-step skin treatment that includes cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, and nourishing the skin.
  • Uses: Promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion and addressing specific skin concerns.

4.) Dermabrasion:

  • Description: A more intensive procedure than microdermabrasion, it involves a surgeon using a high-speed rotating brush to remove the outer layers of the skin.
  • Uses: Treating deeper facial lines, extreme sun damage, and scars.

5.) Topical Treatments:

  • Description: Creams, ointments, or lotions applied directly to the skin.
  • Uses: Addressing various concerns, from acne and pigmentation to wrinkles and redness.

Comparative Analysis: SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL vs. Traditional Treatments

While traditional skin treatments have merits and have served countless individuals over the years, SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL presents a compelling case with its technological edge. It promises efficiency, safety, and results that stand the test of time, challenging the conventions of what we expect from skincare treatments.

1.) Treatment Efficiency:

  • SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL: Utilizing broadband light technology, this treatment specifically targets skin concerns at varying depths. The adaptability of the treatment allows for a comprehensive approach, addressing multiple issues in a single session.
  • Traditional Treatments: Procedures like chemical peels or microdermabrasion often focus on surface-level concerns and might require multiple sessions to achieve desired results for deeper skin issues.

2.) Safety and Comfort:

  • SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL: The precision of the broadband light ensures that only targeted areas are treated, leaving surrounding skin untouched. This reduces the risk of unintended damage and often results in a more comfortable experience for the patient.
  • Traditional Treatments: Some treatments, like dermabrasion, can be more invasive and might have a higher risk of complications or longer recovery times.

3.) Longevity of Results:

  • SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL: By stimulating the body’s natural healing processes and collagen production, the results tend to be longer-lasting. Regular maintenance treatments can further extend the youthful appearance.
  • Traditional Treatments: While effective, treatments like facials or topical applications might require more frequent sessions to maintain results.

4.) Scope of Treatment:

  • SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL: Its versatility allows it to address a wide range of skin concerns, from pigmentation and vascular issues to signs of aging, all in one go.
  • Traditional Treatments: Multiple treatments are often needed to address varied skin concerns. For instance, one might need a chemical peel for sun damage and a separate topical treatment for acne.

5.) Recovery Time:

  • SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL: Generally, there’s minimal downtime. Most patients can return to regular activities almost immediately, with some precautions.
  • Traditional Treatments: Procedures like chemical peels or dermabrasion might require a few days to weeks of recovery, during which the skin heals and regenerates.


The SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL procedure begins with thoroughly cleansing the skin to prepare it for treatment. A cooling gel is then applied to the targeted area to enhance comfort. The handheld BBL device is adjusted to the appropriate settings based on the patient’s specific concerns and skin type. The device is methodically moved across the treatment area, emitting pulses of broadband light. 

Patients often express the feeling as a warm, tingling feeling. The duration of the process alters but typically lasts between 20 to 30 minutes. After the treatment, the cooling gel is removed, and the skin may appear slightly reddened, similar to a mild sunburn. This redness usually subsides within a few hours, leaving the skin refreshed and rejuvenated.


The journey to radiant skin is multifaceted, and while SCITON® FOREVER YOUNG BBL offers a transformative experience, the environment in which you receive such treatments matters immensely.
