Forever Young BBL Photofacial

The solution for your top skin concerns including hyperpigmentation, sun damage, age spots, redness, acne and more. The Sciton Forever Young BBL (BroadBand Light) is a full skin solution and the next generation of phototherapy that treats brown pigment (age spots, sun spots, freckles), redness (rosacea, rosy cheeks, broken blood vessels, vascular lesions) and improves overall skin quality anywhere on the body.

This treatment utilizes pulses of light energy to gently heat the skin’s surface inducing the body’s natural healing process for improved collagen and elastin production. The result is a more even skin tone that boasts brightness and luminosity that continues to improve over time. Treatments are comfortable with little to no downtime. BBL is suitable for most skin types and improvement can be seen after 1 treatment. Traditional IPL can require 5-6 treatments to see comparable results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Forever Young BBL Work?

BBL delivers photothermal energy to gently heat the top layers of the skin. This energy breaks down unwanted melanin, which is responsible for pigmented lesions and discoloration. It also eliminates vascular lesions and redness. BBL is selective in targeting areas of extra pigmentation or redness, but also stimulates skin cell regeneration and collagen production for an overall improvement in skin quality and skin health.

How Many Forever Young BBL Treatments Will I Need?

This varies patient to patient, but most need 3-4 treatments for optimal results. Treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

How Soon Will I See Results From Forever Young BBL?

You will see noticeable improvement within 1 week, with continued improvement over time.

How Long Will Forever Young BBL Results Last?

After completing a series of treatments and reaching your skin goals, we recommend maintaining results with 1-2 treatments per year. The better you are about wearing SPF and avoiding direct sun exposure, the better your results will be and the longer your results will last. With any in-office skin treatment we recommend an at-home medical grade skincare regimen designed for you by Skin Design. In-office treatments are only a small fraction of what you can do to improve your skin’s health and appearance. A medical grade, at-home skincare regimen will not only give you better results, but help you maintain those results.

What Are The Side Effects Of Forever Young BBL?

The most common side effects are mild redness, warmth and a bit of swelling, which improves 12-24 hours after treatment. You will also notice darkening of pigment, which is an anticipated side effect. This indicates the pigmental was targeted and is rising to the surface of the skin to slough off over the next 1-2 weeks.

Is There Downtime Associated With Forever Young BBL?

There is no downtime- you are able to return to your normal, daily activities including working out and wearing makeup. It is imperative that you wear sunscreen immediately after treatment and for several weeks following treatment. At Skin Design, we recommend SPF everyday, whether or not you are receiving BBL. If you are concerned about social downtime, we recommend you receive treatment at least 2 weeks before any major event (ie: wedding, family photos, etc.).

What Areas Of The Body Can Be Treated With Forever Young BBL?

The most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, backs of hands and chest as these areas tend to experience the most sun exposure and damage.

Is Forever Young BBL Painful?

You can expect a mild warming sensation and the feeling of a slight rubber band snap against the skin. We use cooling gel throughout the treatment and a sapphire on the end of the BBL applicator will keep the skin cool and comfortable.

Kristina was AMAZING! I was very nervous about getting Botox but she made me feel so comfortable. She’s very knowledgeable and her staff is awesome as well. I went in blind not really knowing what to do and she accomplished the exact results I was looking for. HIGHLY recommend!

Kristina is the BEST at what she does. I have received so many compliments on my lips after filler and recently had her do some preventative dysport. Over my last few visits she has recommended skincare products that have completely transformed my skin. She’s knowledgeable and seriously the sweetest person. I look forward to seeing her and Jacqui at my appointments!

Kristina is amazing! She is very knowledgable about improving my TMJ symptoms with Botox. She makes me feel really comfortable with everything by starting gradually and checking in with me along the way. I can’t recommend her enough!
