What is a Forever Young BBL?
Forever Young BBL™ uses broad band light to make your skin look more vibrant and youthful. The broad band light energy is not only extremely effective in eliminating brown sun and age spots, but it has also been shown to alter cellular DNA associated with aging. The result is a more youthful appearance and glow to your skin. Broad Band Light energy is also effective in treating moles, skin abnormalities, and acne. It is non-invasive and often requires no downtime. Although the face is the most commonly treated area, the treatment can also be performed for the chest, back, arms, and hands.
Most patients can expect at least a 50% improvement with each treatment. Severe sun damage may therefore require multiple treatments. Since there is no recuperation time, patients return to work and normal activities the same day. The dark spots flake off over the next 7-10 days.
There is exciting Research that BBL rejuvenates aging DNA
There is exciting new research that shows that repetitive treatment using the Forever Young BBL positively influences aging cellular DNA. Studies have shown that DNA ages as we get older. New research that visually compares young DNA to older DNA shows that repetitive treatment of the skin of older patients using the Forever Young BBL causes the older DNA to revert to a more youthful form. When these patients were examined in person, these patients had more healthy, thicker, flawless skin. Patients will require a BBL package and a treatment 3 to 4 times per year.
Candidates for BBL
We fine tune BBL for your skin type and for your desired results. The long-term effects have been proven in most skin types, including people with olive to darker skin. Men, women, fair, dark… almost anyone can enjoy the benefits of BBL for:
- Pigmented lesions, such as freckles and age spots
- Vascular lesions, such as red blemishes including spider veins and rosacea
- Hair Removal
- Skin Texture
What to Expect
An optional topical numbing cream is applied to the skin prior to treatment. During the procedure, your eyes will be protected with safety goggles. Light energy is delivered into the skin creating a bright flash of light. You may feel a quick, warm sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
Immediately following the procedure, you may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated area followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade.
Sunscreen is especially important after a BBL treatment to protect the skin. A skin care regimen will be discussed with you.
The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. We will develop a treatment plan based on the improvement you desire. Regular treatments—at least once a year—have been proven to make patients look ten years younger than when they first started BBL treatments.
