Forever Young BBL
Broadband Light Treatments in Toledo, Ohio
Dr. Frank Barone and the entire evolv staff are extremely excited about new research demonstrating the benefits of broadband light (BBL) in reducing aging at the cellular level. Studies at the Stanford university Medical Center prove that regular light treatments with BBL reactivated genes in skin cells associated with youth and dramatically reduced many of the signs of aging. When combined with a consistent skin care program, regular BBL treatments can significantly restore and rejuvenate skin to a younger and healthy state while reducing redness and pigmentation.

This light therapy in Toledo can treat any area of the body, though the most common treatment areas include the face, neck, back of the hands, chest, and shoulders.
How Does Forever Young BBL Work?
BBL uses advanced dual-lamp technology to produce targeted wavelengths. Adapters also allow treatment of small, hard-to-reach areas for even treatment. Light energy will gently heat the upper layers of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen. Photothermal energy will correct fine vessels that cause redness and will also reduce blemishes and pigmentation.
The evolv Forever Young BBL Treatment
During treatment, special glasses which we provide will need to be worn to protect the eyes. A topical anesthetic can also be applied if desired but treatments are well tolerated by most patients without any topical numbing cream. Patients often describe the treatment as feel like a warm “rubber band snap”. The procedure may take anywhere from 15 minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the treatment area.
There is little to no downtime required. Following a BBL treatment, patients may experience mild redness. Some pigmented legions will darken before fading and flaking off. It is advised that patients avoid direct sunlight until their skin is fully healed. Overall, patients will see smoother, more even skin. Your evolv licensed aesthetician and Dr. Barone will provide specific instructions on resuming your medical skin care after treatment in order to protect and maximize your evolv Forever Young BBL treatment results.
