Everlasting youth: people have been striving to find the key to this for ages, and finally the day has come. No, it isn’t a magic potion, and no, you don’t have to sell your soul to get it. All you need is Forever Young BBL, an innovative system by Sciton that has been clinically proven to rejuvenate skin and delay the skin’s aging process. Forever Young BBL, short for Broad Band Light, is the only light-based device that has shown to literally change the RNA gene expression of skin back to its youthful characteristics. As we age, we begin to see visible signs of sun damage. Photo rejuvenation is the only procedure that can treat vascular redness, the appearance of rosacea, pigmented brown spots, sun damage, skin texture, and collagen structure all at once. With the use of BBL therapy, dramatic improvements can now be accomplished with little or no downtime and with very minimal discomfort. Time and lifestyle choices also affect the appearance of our complexion. This aged look may include freckles, rosacea, wrinkles, broken capillaries, dark spots, blotchy skin color, redness of the face and neck, enlarged pore size and uneven pigmentation.
BroadBand Light, which utilizes visible and infrared light (400–1400 nm) delivered for phototherapy, is a nonablative treatment designed to rejuvenate the skin on the face, chest, neck, forearms, legs, and hands. Over ten years of data supports the anti-aging properties of Broad Band Light published in a recent article from Stanford University. Led by dermatologist Dr. Anne Lynn S. Chang of the Stanford University School of Medicine, the study (“Rejuvenation of Gene Expression Pattern of Aged Human Skin by BroadBand Light Treatment”) reveals the molecular changes that are induced by BBL. Another study submitted for publication by Dr. Patrick H. Bitter, Jr. of Advanced Aesthetic Dermatology, takes this groundbreaking research further and explores the practical application and patient results of BBL treatments. Bitter and Pozner published a paper entitled “Retrospective Evaluation of the Long-term anti-aging Effects of BroadBand Light Therapy.” They evaluated fifteen patients who had undergone IPL treatment at least once a year during a 5-11 year period. Blinded evaluators analyzed clinical photographs taken before the first treatment and after the last treatment. These evaluators estimated the pretreatment and post-treatment ages of the enrollees after a 5 to 11 years span.
The most common treatment is for photo-aging, which is damage caused by longterm exposure to the sun. The BBL can not only be used to treat sun damage to the face, but the rest of the body as well. Treatment reduces freckling and irregular pigmentation and creates a more smooth appearance to the skin and even some reduction in pore appearance. It reduces the redness on the chest associated with excessive sun exposure, and improves the thin-skin appearance of sun-damaged hands. For patients with rosacea, the treatment reduces the overall redness, flushing and tiny blood vessels associated with the condition. These treatments are also effective for the treatment of Acne, as well as acne scarring. You can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries. People with visible aging from the sun can expect to see their skin become smoother with a reduction in pore size and fading of sun spots. Many patients with rosacea see improvement in breakouts and are able to decrease or discontinue their medications.
Forever Young BBL usually takes around 15 minutes for one treatment. Patients do not experience discomfort, and it does not involve any downtime, regular activities can be resumed immediately following treatment. Patients might have some redness and swelling after treatment, and certain dark spots may become darker but this usually settles down quickly, and the brown spots disappear after a few days. Within a few weeks, your skin will look brighter, clearer, and more youthful. For improved in fine lines and wrinkles the
It’s never too soon to begin treatments. Having just two treatments a year can transform the look, health and function of your skin, slowing the rate at which you age. Investing in a series of BBL Photo-Firming Treatments can potentially save you thousands of dollars in your search to achieve and maintain youthful skin. Adopting a skin care program that includes BBL Photo-Firming treatments alongside an effective daily skincare program will bring real, visible, long-term results.
