Why choose Sciton BBL Laser?

    The MW Clinic London conducted extensive research on energy-based equipment and decided to focus on the Sciton BBL product. This non-invasive cosmetic treatment uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to rejuvenate the skin and reduce the appearance of various skin concerns. It is not a laser. The treatment is suitable for people of all skin types and can be used on different areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands.

How does Sciton BBL Laser work?

    The Sciton BBL treatment works by delivering pulses of light energy to the skin, which targets the pigments and structures responsible for various skin concerns. The light energy heats up the targeted area, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin renewal. This can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, and uneven skin tone.

What are the advantages of the Sciton BBL Laser?

    One of the key advantages of the Sciton BBL treatment is its versatility. The treatment can be customised to suit the individual needs of each patient, and the intensity and wavelength of the light energy can be adjusted depending on the specific skin concern being targeted. This means that the treatment can be used to address a wide range of skin concerns, from minor blemishes to more complex issues.
