We are introducing our newest treatment: BBL Hero! BBL HERO stands for broadband light (BBL)™ high energy rapid output (HERO). This is the same BBL™ treatment we know and love, but better. This treatment reduces redness, removes hyperpigmentation, and tightens skin at lightning speed with minimal discomfort and zero downtime. BBL HERO™ is designed to treat the face and other areas of the body that show noticeable signs of aging, including arms, legs, chest, and hands. We could always treat the body with traditional BBL™, but now we can do it faster and in fewer treatments. Combine with HALO Hybrid Fractional Laser for optimal results. 1-3 treatments suggested.
Forever Young BBL™ works by delivering light energy into the upper layers of the skin. The heat generated by this light energy damages the pigmented cells in unwanted lesions and stimulates skin cells to produce new collagen. This process blends the natural colors of the skin and rejuvenates the surface for a smoother, vibrant, and younger look.
Forever Clear BBL™ uses two steps to treat acne in a few brief treatment sessions. It works by using light energy to clear acne without the need for prescription medications or creams. It can safely deliver light deep into the skin to regenerate skin cells, revealing smoother, clearer skin over time.
A pioneering manufacturer of leading-edge lasers and light sources, Sciton, introduced BBL™ (Broadband Light) as a breakthrough IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment. The light emitted by the Forever Young BBL™ device is absorbed by problem areas in the skin and breaks up irregular spots of melanin. However, Forever Young BBL™ does more than simply reduce surface damage. It also revitalizes the skin from the inside out by kick-starting fresh collagen production. The laser energy engages the skin’s natural repair process, causing microscopic injuries that trigger it to heal by creating new collagen molecules.
Forever Young BBL™, also called a photofacial, is used to treat acne symptoms, pigment abnormalities, broken blood vessels, and unwanted body hair. It is a non-invasive treatment that creates subtle, natural-looking results.
Each separate skin concern may require a unique amount of light energy for correction. This is part of what makes Forever Young BBL™ so convenient: The laser’s wavelengths can be modified depending on the imperfections they are targeting.
The Forever Clear BBL procedure is a revolutionary way to treat acne on the face, chest, and back using various colors of light energy to treat acne-causing bacteria deep in the sebaceous glands. Blue BBL light is used to treat and eliminate bacteria deep down in the pores that cause acne to form. Yellow BBL light is used next to reduce the inflammation and redness caused by acne to reveal luminous skin. The SkinTyte II™ then uses gentle yet rapid pulses to help the body begin the healing process.
Intense pulsed light is a solution for redness, rosacea, broken capillaries, acne, hyperpigmentation, uneven tone and texture, and photodamage. It also is used to treat excess body hair by damaging hair follicles. The light energy provides the added benefit of actively destroying bacteria that can cause inflammation and outbreaks.
What sets IPL apart from traditional laser treatments is that intense pulsed light incorporates scattered, short blasts of high-intensity light at varying wavelengths. Laser treatments target skin with a single wavelength, leading to more focused results.
Forever Young BBL™ has the distinction of being the most advanced IPL innovation in the world. This highly versatile light therapy device can be customized to treat various skin conditions, delivering uniform results with great precision.
Before the day of your Forever Young BBL™ procedure, you may need to make some minor lifestyle changes, such as refraining from certain activities. Sun exposure and tanning, whether from artificial sources or otherwise, can interfere with your results from Forever Young BBL™ by causing the overall skin to get darker.
Patients may also be advised to stop taking medications that can increase the risk of bleeding, such as blood thinners like aspirin. Waxing and chemical peels are also not advised before having any type of IPL treatment.
Patients need to remove their makeup and have their face thoroughly cleansed before any IPL session. Patients wear eyewear to protect their eyes and apply ultrasound gel to the treatment area. Most patients describe the experience of a “zapping” from the BBL Hero™ as generating minimal to no pain. The device is equipped with advanced cooling features to minimize discomfort from the heat generated by the device.
Results are most apparent in the weeks following a session, and multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve your desired results. A clinical study has shown that patients can ultimately look even younger than they did when the series began with regular treatments performed as needed.
