Island Dermatology is a laser and skin care clinic in Seattle. Our professionals offer Sciton BBL Laser Treatments, and the Sciton Laser Resurfacing has recently been featured on the Dr. Oz Show. The BBL, or the Broad Band Light, can perform a broad range of aesthetic procedures and non-invasive treatments. When using BBL, light energy gently heats the upper layers of the skin. As the targeted areas absorb the heat, the stimulated skin cells then generate new collagen. It also works by getting rid of the small vessels that cause redness and eliminating any unwanted melanin that causes pigmented lesions on the skin.
One treatment performed by the professionals at Seattle’s Island Dermatology using the BBL is SkinTyte, which was featured on CBS’s daytime show, The Doctors. This is the fastest and most economical way to restore the skins firmness and restore a more youthful overall appearance. With no downtime, patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately following the treatment. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months. Also carried out by the BBL laser here in Seattle is the Acne and Acne scar treatments. This procedure will lead to collagen remodeling, an increase in active fibroblasts and a reduction in the appearance of acne by treating over-acting sebaceous glands. It also helps to improve acne scarring.
ProFractional Therapy combines incredible results with minimal downtime by resurfacing a portion of the skin; we are able to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, while leaving the surrounding skin intact to promote rapid recovery. It’s simply the best of both worlds and ProFractional can be used on all skin-types, both on the face and body. The laser works by removing miniature columns of skin where it is then able to perform collagen remodeling. The body’s natural reaction to promote healing stimulates the fibroblasts, which then produces new collagen and elastin. ProFractional Therapy works great as a standalone procedure or can be combined with other treatments here in Seattle such as with BBL, MicroLaser Peel or SkinTyte.
Several other procedures performed at Island Dermatology include permanent hair reduction, vascular conditions, phototherapy and wrinkle reduction.
