BBL Forever Young: Light Technology to Rejuvenate and Refresh Your Skin

If you think the term “broadband” only applies to your internet connection, think again. It’s also a state-of-the-art facial rejuvenation technique that helps reduce the appearance of tiny blood vessels, age spots and freckles, wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven texture. The actual name is “broadband light therapy” or “BBL,” and it might be just what you need to rejuvenate your skin and take years off your complexion.

At Comprehensive Vein Treatment Center, we use the state-of-the-art Forever Young BBL® system to reduce age-related skin problems and sun damage that can make your skin look old and worn out. The broadband light used by the Forever Young BBL system helps refresh and rejuvenate skin from the “inside-out” for long-term results that can help you look younger and feel more confident and attractive.

What is BBL?

BBL uses intense pulses of broadband light to target skin damaged by age and sun, gently but effectively heating your tissue to stimulate the natural healing processes inside your skin. As the energy is absorbed, it stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen, protein fibers that play important roles in healing and tissues regeneration. Inside your skin, collagen fiber joins together to form supportive networks that can be used to repair damaged areas and replace worn, tired cells. Plus, as those networks form inside your skin, they help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also helping your skin feel and look firmer and younger.

Ramped-up collagen production is important, but it’s not the only benefit of treatment. That broadband light energy also helps promote cell turnover and renewal, so your skin sheds damaged skin more rapidly, revealing smoother, softer skin, and a more even texture and tone overall. The Forever Young BBL system allows the doctor to modulate the energy as it’s emitted, so your treatment can be completely customized for the results you’re looking for. Plus, while BBL can provide great results on your face, it can be used in other areas as well, including the backs of your hands, which are often among the first areas of your body to show your age. It’s also a safe and effective treatment for other areas of your body, including the areas most exposed to the sun, like your neck, shoulders and chest.

Forever Young BBL treatment: What to expect

Forever Young BBL is completely noninvasive, which means there are no incisions and no scars to worry about, plus you won’t need any anesthesia. During treatment, the BBL energy is emitted from a special hand-held applicator that’s passed over your skin. As the energy targets the deeper layers of skin to stimulate collagen production and cell renewal, you might feel a mild stinging similar to the snap of a rubber band. If your skin is very sensitive, we can apply a topical anesthetic prior to treatment to numb the area. Depending on the size of the area being treated, you can expect your session to take anywhere from a few minutes to about a half-hour.

After your treatment, your skin will probably look red, and it may be a bit swollen or tender. These issues will soon resolve. You’ll need to protect your skin from sun exposure while it heals, and you’ll receive other instructions for caring for the area. Depending on the extent of your treatment, you can expect old, damaged skin cells to begin to slough or peel off within a week or so. You might have some scabbing or blistering during this time as well. Once these effects have subsided, you’ll be left with smoother, clearer, younger-looking skin.

While a single treatment can provide you with visible improvement in the way your skin looks and feels, most patients achieve maximum benefits with a series of two to five treatments, with treatments spaced from one to two months apart.
