Pigment busting with Sciton Lasers BBL Hero and Halo

How can you clear patchy pigmentation, reduce redness in your skin and soften wrinkles – all in one treatment session? To find out, I went to visit Dr Maryam Zamani at her new clinic on the Kings Road in London, and watch her demonstrate a treatment using the latest laser and broadband light technology from Sciton Lasers.

Excess pigmentation in the skin creeps up on us over time. It’s the result of our skin being exposed to ultraviolet light, and it shows up in the form of age spots and an uneven skin tone which, together with thread veins, make the skin look weathered.

Dr Zamani uses the BBL Hero – a broadband light treatment — followed by the Halo fractional laser, to break up excess pigmentation in the skin, remove thread veins and stimulate the creation of collagen in the skin. Before treatment, Visia images were taken of the patient’s face, to show the extent of redness, wrinkling and sun damage in her skin before treatment. The Visia imaging was repeated four weeks later. The results – as you can see in the before and after pictures on the video – are amazing. And that’s from just one treatment session.

Prices: starting at around £1,000 Downtime: five days

I list a number of people I know and trust on my site, but you can always use the Sciton practitioner finder for a complete register of practitioners using the product, all of whom have received the proper training and therefore know what they’re doing.


About Alice Hart-Davis

Alice Hart-Davis is an award-winning beauty journalist and author. For nearly 20 years she has been reporting on the aesthetic cosmetic procedures colloquially known as tweakments, and has trialled countless procedures in order to review them.

Alice has won many awards for her work, though none for services as a cosmetic guinea pig. She attends aesthetics conferences around the world and spends a lot of time catching up with the doctors, surgeons, dentists, nurses and the companies behind the technology in this fast-expanding field, the better to understand the tweakments on offer.

Over the years Alice has seen — and experienced first-hand — plenty of bad treatments, and understands the many problems that beset the aesthetics industry, from the lack of regulation to the rising incidence of body dysmorphia among cosmetic patients and practitioners.

Despite this, she remains an advocate of good, understated cosmetic work — the sort which goes undetected and unremarked, because it doesn’t lead to weird-looking hamster cheeks or frozen foreheads. She is also still enthusiastic about the potential of tweakments for making people look that bit better, which in turn makes them feel better about themselves and better able to get on with the rest of their lives.

She lives in London, a short bicycle ride from Harley Street, with her husband and a lively Jack Russell terrier. Her three young adult children take a dim view of tweakments, but accept that these are something she does for work (and are too kind to use the word, ‘vanity’).
