What is Forever Young BBL?
Forever Young BBL is a patented technology by Sciton Laser that uses light energy to reduce the signs of aging in the skin and improve areas of pigmentation, vascular lesions, and redness. It has been shown by clinical studies at Stanford University Medical Center that this particular wavelength of light, broadband light or BBL, can actually stimulate skin cells and genes associated with youthfulness and turn back the clock. This technology is an especially exciting finding for patients committed to improving skin health and reducing skin aging.
What does Broadband Light (BBL) do?
Broadband Light treats and reduces brown spots or age spots as well as skin redness and blood vessels. With precise wavelength and power, the light energy is absorbed by pigmentation, spotty areas of sun damage, and melasma. Red areas of the skin also absorb the light energy, including small blood vessels, veins, or rosacea (a chronic inflammation of skin with persistent redness) and are permanently reduced.
In our experience, pulsed light or BBL is the only effective technology that permanently reduces rosacea, redness and pigmentation in the skin. Additionally, BBL can stimulate receptors on the skin cells, improving collagen production, which is critical to create more firmness and maintain youthful skin health.
What to Expect with evolv Forever Young BBL
The Forever Young BBL treatment is very well-tolerated. Most patients do not require topical numbing cream or anesthetic. Once the patient comes into the office and after the skin is cleansed, goggles are applied and the light treatment lasts approximately 15 minutes or less for the face. During treatment, patients will notice a warm sensation, or a warm rubber band snapping sensation in the skin which is usually quite tolerable. Topical numbing cream can be used if needed.
Typically there are no blisters or bruises associated with this treatment. Afterward, the skin may feel slightly red or swollen, but this is often negligible and subsides quickly. Patients may notice a slight amount of redness which generally fades within a few hours.
Evolv Forever Young BBL & Skin Care
In our experience at evolv Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics, incorporating a personalized medical skin care program with light therapy treatments significantly improves results and reduces complications. We feel it is very important to have a balanced, long-term program to maximize the response of the skin, and overall improve the outcomes for each patient. Skin that is prepared prior to treatment will respond more favorably and consistently and also has a quicker healing time as well as avoids complications associated with patients who have no preparation before their laser or light treatments. Working with your professional aesthetician or physician is important when customizing these programs in order to provide comprehensive treatment and optimal outcomes. It should also be emphasized that daily skin care and sun protection are important in obtaining and maintaining these results.
Evolv Forever Young
Evolv Forever Young is unique and exciting, cutting-edge program incorporating balanced skin care combined with maintenance treatments or broadband light therapy once every three or four months to essentially stop the aging clock in the skin. Stanford dermatology studies have shown that patients treated with BBL over 10 years actually looked younger than when they started the program. BBL is proven by laboratory research that these treatments result in unique benefits such as stimulating the ‘genes of youth’ at a molecular level. This innovative treatment is a quite exciting way to basically prevent most of the undesirable changes associated with aging in the skin.
