Forever Young BBL™
Forever Young BBL™
Do you ever dream of stopping the clock on your skin’s aging? A revolutionary new light-based treatment called Forever Young BBL™ can potentially slow and even reverse time’s effect on your skin, diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and blemishes. The secret to this innovative technique is broadband light, also called BBL, which has been shown to alter gene expression in the skin, typically resulting in more even tone and texture on the face and body. Are you ready to see a younger version of you in the mirror? Our skilled physicians will develop a customized Forever Young BBL™ treatment plan to suit your cosmetic goals. Contact us today at (604) 980-3993 for more information or to schedule a consultation.
How Does Forever Young BBL™ Work?
The Forever Young BBL™ device is essentially a handheld lamp with two bulbs. The instrument emits an invisible infrared light, which is designed to cause rejuvenating effects on a cellular level, targeting aged and damaged skin cells and reinvigorating them to resemble more youthful ones. As a result, skin usually becomes firmer, more elastic, and more youthful-looking, and common signs of aging, as well as pigmentation, typically will be reduced.
During a Stanford clinical study examining the effects of BBL treatments, researchers discovered that Forever Young BBL™ could alter gene expression to revitalize older skin cells. Furthermore, patients who received regular BBL treatments and were followed over the course of 12 years appeared, on average, approximately nine years younger than their actual age.
Forever Young BBL™ can be used on the face and the body. The large size of the wand allows for easy and rapid treatment on both small and large areas, including the arms, hands, face, neck, and chest, with more time to complete multiple passes, which can optimize your results. Our extensive training with laser and light techniques makes it possible for them to precisely tailor the device to suit your anatomic needs and aesthetic goals. Additionally, BBL works well on a wide range of skin types and tones, making this one of the best methods available for effective, lasting skin rejuvenation.
What Are the Benefits of Forever Young BBL™?
In addition to providing comprehensive rejuvenation of the skin’s foundational elements, Forever Young BBL™ treatments offer numerous short and long-term benefits, including:
- Non-invasive aesthetic enhancement
- Minimal or no downtime
- Gradual, long-lasting effects
- Typically brief treatment sessions
- Suitable for a range of skin types
- Diminished appearance of fine lines, pigmentation, and acne
- Increased skin elasticity and firmness
- Enhanced radiance
- Smoother, more even skin tone and texture
Regular BBL treatments have been shown to help skin maintain a youthful appearance for years, potentially delaying or preventing the need for more invasive surgical procedures in the future for many patients.
Does it Hurt?
Forever Young BBL™ technology was designed with your comfort in mind, and most patients tolerate the procedure well. The device comes equipped with a cooling function to minimize discomfort, though you may feel a mild snapping, stinging, or pinching sensation during treatment. Anesthetic is not required, and we will endeavor to make your experience as pleasant as possible.
What is Recovery Like?
There is typically no downtime following treatment with Forever Young BBL™, and you should be able to return to normal activities immediately following the procedure. In some cases, you may experience some mild redness in the treated area. This effect should fade within a few hours.
