Sciton® BBL™ and Halo™ Lasers

Do you wish your skin still had its youthful, healthy glow? Sun damage, the natural aging process, and acne scarring can dull the skin, causing poor skin texture, discoloration, enlarged pores, fine lines, and other bothersome issues. Do you want to reduce the appearance of unwanted body hair? At-home hair removal methods can be time-consuming and cause skin irritation. At Thompson Center for Plastic Surgery, patients can receive treatment using the Sciton® BBL™ BroadBand Light laser, Forever Bare BBL™, Forever Clear BBL™ or the Sciton® Halo™ laser depending on their unique needs. An extensive, in-depth consultation allows Dr. Thompson to understand your skin concerns and to provide optimal custom results.

What Do You Desire?


Improved Texture

Men and women who suffer from poor skin texture and laxity can feel self-conscious about their condition. Wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scarring contribute to a dull, aged appearance that can be difficult to correct with creams and makeup. Both BBL™ and Halo™ treatment can reverse these effects and reveal the smoother complexion beneath the damage.

Improved Tone

Over time, the skin becomes discolored and uneven. Sun damage, facial scarring, and the natural aging process can cause the dermis to appear lackluster. Halo™ treatment restores a youthful glow to the skin, brightening facial tone and creating a smooth, even complexion.

Hair Reduction

Shaving, waxing, and tweezing regularly can become tiresome and even irritate the skin. Patients who opt for Forever Bare BBL™ treatment enjoy the benefits of a dramatic reduction in unwanted body hair, freeing themselves from the time and financial burdens of traditional hair removal methods.

Immediate Results

Laser treatment with Sciton® BBL™ and Halo™ is comfortable and requires minimal social downtime. Patients who utilize Halo™ can apply makeup just 24 hours after the procedure, and patients who use Forever Bare BBL™ for hair reduction will see results in as little as two weeks.

Your Sciton® Laser Consultation

Your consultation with Dr. Thompson is one of the most critical aspects of your treatment. Dr. Thompson evaluates each patient’s condition and considers their goals before developing a customized treatment plan that will provide them with smooth and rejuvenating results.

Sciton® Laser Options

BBL™ Broadband Light

BBL™ is the most powerful IPL (intense pulsed light) device available. It stimulates cell regeneration in targeted areas, revitalizing the skin for a brighter, more beautiful complexion. BBL™ can treat the following skin conditions:

  • Freckles
  • Age spots and other discolorations
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rosacea
  • Acne scarring

Forever Bare BBL™

Forever Bare BBL™ is the safest, most comfortable option for hair removal. Multiple lower fluence pulses are delivered at a high repetition rate to heat the hair follicles evenly for more effective treatment than traditional hair removal devices. Forever Bare BBL™ can treat the following:

  • Unwanted hair

Forever Clear BBL™

Using the world’s most powerful IPL device, Forever Clear BBL™ uses light energy to activate and regenerate skin cells on your face. This treatment is comfortable and effective, using a three-step process to provide you with clear and glowing skin.

  • Step 1 (blue): eliminates bacteria
  • Step 2 (yellow): reduces inflammation and redness
  • Step 3 (infra-red): triggers the natural healing process


Because it delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths during a single treatment, Halo™ is the first hybrid fractional laser. It requires less social downtime than traditional laser treatments, and patients can expect better results with fewer sessions. Halo™ can treat the following skin conditions:

  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines
  • Discoloration
  • Light scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Melasma

Sciton® BBL™, Forever Bare BBL™, and Halo™ Lasers FAQs

You can expect some redness and swelling for a few days after laser skin treatment. Mild flaking or peeling may occur as well. Initial results appear within seven to 14 days of treatment. Minimal to no social downtime is needed.

Pain management is one of Dr. Thompson’s top priorities. A topical anesthetic may be applied before treatment, and most patients experience little to no discomfort as a result.
The laser can only eliminate hair in its active growth cycle. Because the hair has three different growth cycles and all hair is in various phases at a given time, patients will need between four and six sessions to reduce all unwanted hair completely and permanently.
Yes. Patients often combine laser treatments with other rejuvenation procedures for improved results. We also offer resurfacing and profractional laser services with the Sciton® laser.
