BBL Forever Young
What is BBL Forever Young?
Forever Young is a skin treatment that uses broadband light, an advanced form of intense pulsed light therapy, to improve health and appearance of skin. It targets pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and other forms of aging. It stimulates the growth of new skin cells, collagen production, and gene expression associated with longevity. It can be performed anywhere on the body, and results in younger, clearer, healthier, smoother, and more even and vibrant skin.
What conditions does it treat?
BBL Photofacial treats brown pigmentation such as freckles and age spots. BBL also treats vascular issues such as redness, small blood vessels, and rosacea as well as aging skin, uneven skin texture, and loss of firmness.
How does BBL Photofacial work?
The light energy delivered by BBL will precisely deliver laser energy to specific targets in your skin. gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. If brown spots are the target, BBL penetrates the skin to reach the pigment. The particles of the pigment left behind will peel or slough off within 7-14 days. If redness is the target, blood vessels in the superficial layers of the skin absorb the laser energy which causes them to close. Over the course of several weeks, the body continues to absorb the destroyed vessel remnants.
Is there downtime associated with BBL Photofacial?
Immediately following treatment, you can expect to see redness, and it may feel like a slight sunburn in the treated area. Depending on the aggressiveness of your treatment, you may have swelling for a day or two. Pigmentation will turn darker and will slough off in 7-14 days. You may have bruising with vascular treatments.
What Equipment do we use for BBL?
We use a Sciton BBL. The technology behind Sciton BBL is based on selective photothermolysis, which means that the light energy is absorbed by specific target areas in the skin while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. This allows for precise and targeted treatment, minimizing the risk of damage or side effects.
