INTRODUCING FOREVER YOUNG BBL™
A NEW APPROACH TO YOUNGER, MORE RADIANT SKIN.
For as long as people have been concerned about aging, there has been a plethora of creams, potions, and lotions promising younger-looking skin nearly overnight. If one understands the function of the skin, one will know that contrary to popular belief, creams and lotions cannot penetrate the skin deep enough to reach where much of the aging process happens. This isn’t to say they aren’t helpful, but their corrective capabilities are limited.
Lasers and chemical peels have had quite a bit of success in rejuvenating the skin. They work on the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate new skin and collagen formation while removing the outer, older layers of skin. While the results can be dramatic, there is significant recovery time and, depending on the depth of treatment, can have significant side effects.
The Forever Young BBL™ PhotoFacial is a revolutionary treatment that sends light energy deep into the skin to boost your body’s natural ability to fight aging, while removing the signs of aging such as sun spots, redness, and spider veins. Without any downtime!
The result? Skin that’s visibly younger looking, year after year!
Through the use of both visible and near-infrared light, the Forever Young BBL™ PhotoFacial treatment is designed to stimulate skin cells to function at a younger level so that over time, you can experience a clearer, smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. This non-invasive treatment gives visible results within a few days, leaving you looking and feeling more confident.
Forever Young BBL™ BroadBand Light treatment is fast, easy and pain-free and is appropriate for all ages looking to improve and maintain the look of young, healthy skin.
CAN FOREVER YOUNG BBL™ REALLY STOP THE CLOCK ON AGING SKIN?
Yes! It was proven in two long-term clinical studies. In one study, patients received 3 BBL treatments and their skin was biopsied before and after treatment. The results showed that BBL treatments caused the skin to function at a younger level. In a follow-up study, they looked at the genes involved in aging skin and found after BBL treatments, the genes that were active in the aging process were being suppressed. Functionally turning back the clock on the aging process.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments needed varies from person to person, and we will personalize a plan based on the level of improvement you desire and the condition of your skin when you start. Generally, more sun damaged skin will require more treatments. Remember that regular treatments – at least twice a year – were proven to make patients look ten years younger than when they first started Forever Young BBL™ treatments.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR FOREVER YOUNG BBL™?
We can fine-tune Forever Young BBL™ for your skin type. The long-term effects have been proven in most skin types, including people with olive to darker skin.
AT WHAT AGE SHOULD I START BBL TREATMENTS?
Forever Young BBL™ isn’t just a beauty treatment. It’s a preventive regimen – possibly the best investment anyone can make in his or her skin. Both men and women with almost any skin type can protect themselves against the sun and environmental damage that adds up over time. In fact, the best time to think about the effects of aging is before they appear. Since the ten-year study shows that regular Forever Young BBL™ treatments stop the skin’s appearance of aging…why wait?
WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING THE PROCEDURE?
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. Typically, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, however, your clinician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECOVER?
This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to apply makeup, return to work and resume most of your activities immediately.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER THE TREATMENT?
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 sun spots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments and the area treated. Your clinician will provide you with complete information about the post treatment care and results.
WHAT AFTERCARE PLAN DO I NEED?
It is important to follow your clinician’s treatment plan. You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your treated skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
IS THIS A ONE AND DONE PROCEDURE OR DO I NEED TO MAINTAIN IT?
While this treatment can have dramatic and cumulative effects, the skin continues to age, as does our bodies. Keeping in mind that the skin is the larges organ in our bodies and undergoes continuous bombardment from the environment, to maintain the results long term we recommend usually 2 to 4 treatments per year.
