At The Naderi Center we believe in providing our patients with the absolute best; Whether it’s our surgical procedures, injections or our lasers.
At The Naderi Center we perform our laser and phototherapy treatments using gold standard equipment. Not all lasers are created equal. There are hundreds of cheaply manufactured lasers that have flooded the medical practices and spas. These lasers are often under-powered and lack effectiveness. These lesser lasers are also often inconsistent in their power delivery so that each pulse or “zap” of the laser delivers and inconsistent power resulting in under-treatment in certain areas and burns in other areas. There are only a handful of companies out there with the science and reputation to create great lasers and even within each company often they may be better known for one type of laser for one type of treatment.
For example, our Sciton Joule is the “Rolls Royce” of IPL (Intense Pulse Light) treatments. It is FDA approved and much stronger, safer and effective than traditional IPL treatments which is why Sciton re-branded their IPL by calling it BBL (Broadband light). What sets this machine apart from other IPL machines is that the Sciton Joule uses a dual flash lamp design with the power in the large powerful machine rather than putting all of the technology into a small flimsy hand-piece, which ends up allowing for a consistent energy delivery to the skin each and every time with no guess work. Sciton Joule is the absolute gold standard of IPL (BBL) machines out there.
Forever Young BBL™
Studies have shown that the light energy from (IPL) BBL can reverse the signs of aging. Packing the skin with light helps produce collagen and with continued use it can keep the skin youthful for years to come and even reverse aging skin changes. Forever Young BBL™ is a treatment performed at intervals of once every 3, 4, or 6 months to keep the skin tight and youthful by promoting healthy collagen growth and clearing the skin of any hyperpigmentation. Imagine having better younger looking skin even as you get older. Your skin can be forever young with proper medical treatments especially when combined with a proper medical grade at home skincare regimen.
Forever Clear BBL™
Blue light technology has been proven to kill acne causing bacteria in the skin. Forever Clear BBL™ uses different wavelengths of IPL light to kill bacteria, reduce inflammation, and smooth out existing acne scars. Treatments are performed at weekly or bi-weeky intervals to reduce skin bacteria to help old and new breakouts clear up faster. Sciton’s Blue light treatment is perfect for most skin types (BBL is not recommended with very dark skin), has no downtime and minimal discomfort. Forever Clear BBL™ combined with an at home acne regimen from the ZO line will leave your skin clear and radiant and help minimize breakouts. Acne is a chronic condition but with proper diligence and consistent care, good control is realistic.
IPL has been used for years to treat redness such as Rosacea and broken capillaries (or even some bruises) as well as hyperpigmentation such as freckles and sun spots. In fact IPL/BBL is one of the best treatments for Rosacea. With the BBL Corrective we can address both the reds and the browns in the same treatment. Almost all patients see visible improvement in their skin after one treatment but a series of 3 treatments are necessary for everyone and to maintain results, future booster treatments are recommended. Once redness or hyperpigmentation is improved, Forever Young BBL™ protocol can maintain the results. Melasma however is a stubborn condition that usually should not be treated with IPL/BBL. Please notify our staff if you suffer from Melasma. Treatment for Melasma includes persistent at home skincare combined with strict sun avoidance.
At The Naderi Center, our skin care staff will sit down with you and discuss your options for treatment. Not everyone is a candidate for IPL/BBL treatments due to skin color and type. Many patients will need to be “pre-treated” with 4% hydroquinone and Retin-A for 4-8 weeks prior to IPL/BBL in order to strengthen the skin, reduce Melanocyte activity and ensure that best possible result is achieved at the lowest risk. While many spas and providers are eager to laser or IPL you on the day of your visit, we focus on safety and urge our patients to be patient with the pre-treatment skincare protocol to reduce the risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).
Like any procedure or Laser, there are associated risks which we will thoroughly discuss at your consultation. Downtime is minimal and risks are low when patients are selected properly and follow our instructions diligently. Sun avoidance before and after treatment is crucial. Certain medical conditions or medications can increase sensitivity to light based treatments. Skin that has been recently tanned due to sun exposure cannot undergo IPL/BBL until the tan wears off. Please notify our staff of any and all concerns and medical conditions, medications as well as any recent or near future sun exposure.
