BBL Forever Young
The BBL Forever Young technology utilizes innovative broadband light technology to treat skin conditions related to aging and sun damage. The broadband light energy can improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, age and sun spots, small facial veins, blemishes, and other conditions. The light gently heats the upper layers of skin, stimulating the generation of new collagen and giving your skin a smoother, more vibrant, and youthful appearance.
The BBL Forever Young treatment can be performed on any part of the body. Most clients prefer to treat areas that have been most exposed to the sun, including the face, neck, chest, shoulders, and back of the hands. At your consultation appointment, let your doctor know what areas you would like to have treated and what results from you hope to see in order to receive the most effective treatment possible.
In order to receive the best results, most patients will need to undergo anywhere from two to five treatments, with treatments occurring four to eight weeks apart. Depending on the severity of the skin condition, some patients may require additional treatments. The procedure is safe and non-invasive, and it requires almost no downtime. Most people experience little to no pain or discomfort during the procedure, but this varies from patient to patient based on the treatment. Most patients feel a sensation similar to a quick rubber band snap as the light is absorbed by the skin. Topical anesthesia is not typically required, but it is sometimes used for the treatment of sensitive areas. Each session usually takes anywhere from a few minutes to a half-hour, but some types of procedures may require more time. Your doctor will discuss with you the treatment plan and procedure in detail at your consultation.
Your doctor will give you specific instructions for taking care of your skin after the procedure. You will be able to resume normal activities very soon, but you will need to follow your doctor’s instructions to help your skin heal. You may be given skincare products that will help minimize the risk of redness and inflammation and promote healing. It’s normal for the treatment area to have some redness for the first few days after the procedure, but it is safe to use makeup to cover the area. Other side effects include a sunburn-like sensation, temporary darkening of pigmented lesions, and blistering, crusting, or scabbing of the treated skin. These side effects may last up to 10 days, so be gentle with your skin until it has healed. You should avoid direct sunlight until your skin heals, and use sunscreen if you have to be outside.
