BBL Laser

Forever Young BBL Laser

The Forever Young BBL laser is an effective skin care treatment that uses innovative light therapy technology to target the signs of aging, sun damage and other conditions with precision. Forever Young BBL is the only facial treatment that has been shown to affect the expression of genes that are associated with aging and longevity, rejuvenating skin on a molecular level. You will notice improved tone and texture immediately after your BBL laser treatment and the effects of aging will be offset for many years. Forever Young BBL is used to treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Age spots

How does it work?

Forever Young BBL works by selectively heating layers of the skin with broad-spectrum and infrared light. This range of intense, pulsed light gently heats the upper layers of the skin where it is absorbed by the melanin (or pigments) in targeted areas. Age spots, sun damage and other skin issues that are the result of accumulated pigment cells are easily targeted and broken down by this light. In addition to eliminating dark spots, collagen and elastin production are stimulated, regenerating cells to effectively treat the signs of aging, acne and other undesired conditions. BBL lasers can also be adjusted to target hemoglobin instead of melanin, making it an effective treatment for broken blood vessels and facial redness. Common treatment areas include the face, chest, neck and back, but Forever Young BBL can be used on most of the body, including the arms, legs, stomach and hands.

What can I expect during my treatment?

During your Forever Young BBL session, your provider at The Finishing Touch Medspa will apply a gel to your treatment area and supply you with safety garments such as protective eyewear. This is to keep your skin cool and prevent the light from harming your retinas. BBL laser treatments are safe on all areas of the body and for all skin types; the use of cooling gel and eye protection is a precaution. The applicator will then be applied in a grid-like pattern to deliver the beneficial, broad-band light. Your provider can use different filters and wavelengths to adjust the treatment for precise results that are highly targeted. Each session usually takes 15 to 30 minutes, but procedures are customized to the patient and may vary depending on the condition and size of the area being treated.

Forever Young BBL is a noninvasive, comfortable treatment. Some patients may experience minor discomfort that has been described as a light warming, snapping sensation in more sensitive areas, but this is minimal and temporary. After your treatment, your skin may feel warm and flushed. Some patients may also experience swelling or redness, but these symptoms are minor and should subside within 24 hours. Although it’s crucial that you apply SPF 30 or higher sunscreen to treated areas for a month after your treatment, you won’t experience any downtime or recovery.

If the BBL laser is used to treat age spots or pigmentation issues, these will get darker for a few days following your treatment. This is normal and indicates that the BBL light was successfully absorbed. These dark spots will flake off naturally in a process that may last up to two weeks.

If the BBL laser is used to treat facial redness, you might have some tenderness in the targeted areas. This is also normal and indicates that the treatment is working. Although patients can return to work and other activities immediately after a treatment, you may want to plan for social events so that when the time comes, you look your absolute best.

How long do the results last?

Forever Young BBL provides long-lasting results that are visible after just one treatment. One study found that patients treated with Forever Young BBL looked, on average, nine years younger than their actual age. For those who maintain regular BBL laser treatments, the long-term signs of aging can be delayed with beautiful-looking results. The results you experience will be permanent but you should continue to maintain best skin care practices. BBL lasers can’t prevent your skin from continuing to age naturally, though it can drastically slow the effects.

For all conditions and areas treated with Forever Young BBL, results can be seen immediately but may continue to develop in the weeks following your last session. While pigmented spots break apart and flake off in response to your treatment, your skin is producing new collagen and elastin that will improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. To ensure optimal results, a series of three or more treatments spaced a few months apart is recommended, along with two to three maintenance treatments a year. Some of the benefits you may notice with Forever Young BBL include:

  • Improved skin elasticity — The activation of the skin’s natural healing process stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin that will effectively improve skin elasticity, resulting in a refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance
  • Noticeable fading of age spots, sun spots and freckles — Dark spots and other pigmented lesions will absorb the incoming light energy, fading and flaking off after your treatment
  • Improved acne — If you opt for the BBL laser acne treatment, bacteria that causes breakouts and inflammation will be eliminated in a three-step process
  • Reduced facial redness — BBL lasers can be adjusted to target blood vessels that cause redness and rosacea
  • Smoother skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles — BBL lasers trigger changes to the skin that improve tone, texture and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, keeping patients looking up to 10 years younger!
