At Wise Aesthetics in Carmel, IN, we offer IPL and BBL treatments that can safely eliminate stubborn discolored spots to create a uniform skin texture, treat acne and acne scars, reverse sun damage, and promote increased collagen and elastin production. Whether you have minor, moderate, or more advanced skin concerns, we can design a treatment plan with our powerful light-based devices to transform and brighten your skin.
What Are IPL and BBL Treatments?
IPL and BBL devices use intense pulsed light or broadband light to perform a non-invasive treatment that can target discoloration, including brown spots or redness resulting from sun damage. The treatments result in a renewed, glowing complexion that can help patients feel more confident in the appearance of their skin. These treatments, also known as photofacials, use light energy to improve the skin, reverse aging, and eliminate skin imperfections.
Am I a Candidate?
While our intense pulsed light and broadband light treatments can safely improve the skin of patients with different skin types and conditions, a pre-treatment consultation is necessary before scheduling an appointment. This consultation lets us pinpoint your specific concerns and determine which treatment option will best target those conditions to help you achieve your desired results.
Experienced the Power of a Light-Based Skincare Treatment
An IPL or BBL treatment may be exactly what you need to address your skin concerns and achieve vibrant, healthy skin. We can give you more details about our treatment options, determine your treatment eligibility, and help you choose which one is right for you so that you can experience clearer, brighter, and younger-looking skin.
Unlike laser treatments, light-based devices use multiple wavelengths to address skin concerns. Intense pulsed light and broadband light treatments target discolored skin cells; as those hyperpigmented cells soak up the light, they’re destroyed. This process also initiates a healing response from the body, which increases natural collagen and elastin production to rejuvenate the skin and restore a youthful, healthy appearance.
We can use intense pulsed light and broadband light treatments to address skin concerns on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs. These light-based treatments can eliminate hyperpigmentation, which appears in different forms and can reveal itself as melasma, sun spots, age spots, freckles, dark patches, and general discoloration. They can also eliminate sun damage, reduce the appearance of rosacea, remove tiny red visible veins from the face, and treat acne.
One of the primary benefits of these light-based treatments is that almost everyone is a good candidate. Because we offer many treatment options, we can custom-tailor our treatment approach to benefit each patient. Whether you want to address a single concern, like a dark spot, or multiple skin concerns, we can tailor your treatment plan accordingly to ensure you achieve optimal results. Some of the treatment benefits include the following:
- Skin improvements are visible in as little as one treatment
- The devices can meet the needs of patients with most skin types
- Treatments are comfortable, gentle, and effective
- Treatment times are quick
- There’s little to no social downtime after a treatment
There’s no significant social downtime after these treatments. You will need to protect your skin after your treatment, including avoiding direct sun exposure for several days, wearing quality sunscreen, and using the right products like a gentle cleanser and moisturizer to promote healing.
You should temporarily discontinue harsh anti-aging treatments or products that could irritate your skin or cause inflammation immediately following your treatment. We will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your skin once your appointment concludes.
Some patients notice immediate results; for others, it can take one to two weeks to see visible improvements in the appearance of the skin. Since these devices can address different skin conditions, results will vary among patients based on their unique treatment plans.
Your treatment results can last a year or longer. The length of results varies among patients, and we can give you a better idea of what you can expect from your treatment plan at your initial consultation. However, maintenance treatments yearly can extend your results, prevent additional discoloration, and keep your skin healthy and vibrant.

Our BBL Treatment Options
We perform our broadband light treatments with an effective device by Sciton®. This device includes multiple modalities that can address common skin concerns, including visible signs of aging like lines and wrinkles, discoloration, redness, acne, and even a dull complexion. Our broadband light treatment options include the following:
- BBL Corrective – $300+
- BBL Forever Young® – $400+
- BBL Forever Clear® – $250+
- BBL HERO™ – $500+
The Sciton® BBL Corrective treatment is designed to correct skin imperfections, specifically discoloration. It’s an effective treatment option for patients who want to reduce redness, eliminate tiny facial veins, and treat discoloration.
Sciton® Forever Young® is a quick treatment that uses broadband light to eliminate freckles, discoloration, redness, and small vessels and rejuvenate the skin. Treatments are gentle, comfortable, and effective. Patients won’t need any numbing cream during the quick treatment and can expect some initial results and more visible results within the first two to three weeks of treatment.
Forever Clear® is another treatment by Sciton® that uses broadband light to target, treat, and prevent acne. Unlike many topical acne treatments that contain hash ingredients or acne medications that may cause side effects, this acne treatment is safe and effective. Treatments take 10 to 15 minutes, don’t require any topical anesthetic, and patients won’t have to plan around downtime.
Results appear within the first week of treatment and will continue improving over time. Forever Clear® can also eliminate redness associated with acne, heal active acne, and improve the appearance of acne scars.
HERO™ treatments can address a range of different skin concerns. They can improve the appearance by visibly reducing lines and wrinkles, eliminating vascular lesions, brightening a dull complexion, and healing acne. HERO™ can also treat skin laxity by tightening the skin, and it can eliminate freckles, age spots, and even cherry angiomas.
