Skin issues like acne, redness, and hyperpigmentation start below the skin’s surface, which is why topical products alone are often ineffective. Reaching the source of the problem requires an advanced treatment like the Sciton Forever Young BBL (broadband light).
Most often we use Forever Young BBL for the treatment of hyperpigmentation but recent studies have shown that regular maintenance treatments make patients look 10 years younger and can actually influence gene expression. Here’s how it works:
WHO SHOULD RECEIVE BBL TREATMENTS?
BBL is a highly versatile treatment that can correct many of the same conditions treated by lasers. BBL treatment may be an appropriate solution for the following:
- Acne or acne scars
- Age spots
- Uneven skin pigmentation
- Unwanted spider veins or moles
- Broken capillaries or redness
HOW DOES BBL WORK?
BBL uses low-frequency photothermal energy to safely and gently heat deep layers of skin. Damaged cells absorb this energy and are stimulated to generate new collagen – an important building block of healthy-looking skin. BBL uses a broad range of energy wavelengths to allow for more complete improvements and evenly-treated skin. A thermoelectric monitoring system adjusts the temperature of your procedure, eliminating the need for pain medication and ensuring that you remain comfortable during treatment.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
During your consultation, we will thoroughly assess your skin. Based on this information, your skin care specialist will develop a step-by-step plan to help you achieve the results you are looking for.
The treatment is very gentle and requires minimal downtime. No anesthesia is needed, but you will be provided with eyewear for protection during the procedure. Treatments are typically performed by one of our certified laser specialists.
Your treatment provider will apply the BBL hand piece to your skin and deliver precise pulses of light energy to the treatment areas. This can produce a light stinging sensation that is usually well-tolerated by most people. The entire procedure should take under 1 hour.
You will be asked to wear sunscreen for several weeks after treatment in order to protect your skin as it heals. The skin may appear flushed for a few days after BBL and certain dark spots may become darker. This can be covered with makeup and will resolve within about 10 to 14 days. Within a few weeks, your skin will look brighter, clearer, and more youthful
