Would you like younger, healthier looking skin with less brown spots, fine lines, and redness? Would you like the freedom to wear less makeup while maintaining an even and glowing complexion? Would you like to slow down and even reverse the process of aging? If so, our Forever Young BBL treatment may be just the solution you need!
What is BBL?
BBL stands for Broadband Light. Unlike laser treatments, this is a light spectrum that is used to treat the skin with no downtime. When applied with proper technique, BBL offers corrective, regenerative and preventative properties. When superficial sun damage, brown spots, redness and broken capillaries are present, BBL is absorbed into the extra melanin and hemoglobin in these areas to reduce and remove this damage. While being absorbed into the cells, BBL is simultaneously regenerating collagen and elasticity in the skin. Furthermore, on the microscopic level BBL is also altering the expression of genes in the skin cells to reverse and prevent the aging process!
What will BBL improve?
BBL removes unwanted brown spots, sun damage, fine lines, broken capillaries, flushing, rosacea and even restores elasticity. Removing these blemishes and impurities smoothes the complexion and allows it to be more reflective which in turn restores a youthful glow. Most of the guests we treat are complimented on the bright and healthy appearance of their skin without anyone noticing that they’ve had a cosmetic procedure. Our long term guests often hear that they look younger and younger each time they see distant acquaintances, family or friends. This is because BBL literally reverses the appearance of aging as it diminishes fine lines and restores volume to the skin.
What is the treatment like?
This treatment can vary slightly for everyone. In general, however, the treatment process is as follows:
- Your skin is numbed with a Hotze Pharmacy-compounded lidocaine numbing gel for 20-30 minutes before the procedure.
- Once the skin is cleansed and disinfected, ultrasound numbing gel is applied to the treatment area to protect the epidermis of the skin, and steel goggles are used to protect your eyes.
- During the treatment, light is applied in “pulses” which to you will look like a bright flash and feel like a warm-hot snapping sensation.
- Afterward, you may feel a mild sunburn sensation and have some redness that can be covered immediately with makeup.
- The whole procedure—including paperwork, numbing, cleansing, treatment and aftercare instruction— is typically finished within 1.5 hours if treating one area.
What does the research show?
BBL is clinically proven to fight the aging process of your skin by altering the expression of genes for more youthful, healthy skin. As you age, certain genes within your cells begin to express themselves differently than when you were younger – imagine young genes “turning off” and old genes “turning on.” When BBL is applied correctly, this process is reversed! This was proven in a 10-year clinical study done with Stanford University, one of the longest skin care studies ever conducted. The study found that BBL turns off genes associated with aging while turning on youthful genes that were previously active when you were young. As a result, new skin cells are programmed to look and act younger, and you can naturally create more kinds of proteins and building blocks for healthy skin.
