I've been in the aesthetic industry for about four and a half years now, and I've done a lot of reading and heard a lot of research on the efficacy of treatments. But the Forever Young BBL is truly a game changer for laser treatments. It has been proven to actually restore the gene expression of aged skin. Translation: you get older, your skin gets younger.
Every once in a while a treatment is introduced that takes us one step closer to the fountain of youth. The Forever Young BBL (Broadband Light) Photofacial is a big step in that direction. This is the most effective and advanced form of a photofacial currently available today, to slow down, treat and reverse damaged and aged skin.
The Forever Young BBL encompasses all of the advantages of the standard BBL Photofacial procedure along with the newly recognized benefit of delaying skin aging. The treatment targets hyper-pigmentation, sun damage, broken capillaries and diffused redness in the skin all while stimulating collagen. Forever Young BBL clients have seen great results on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and other body parts.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Forever Young BBL Photofacial is quick and safe, performed in 30 minutes or less. It uses various wavelengths of light which target damaged cells in the skin, stimulating our body’s natural healing process. When this occurs, pigmented damage such as sun spots and freckles get pushed to the surface of the skin and naturally flake off. The light also treats broken capillaries and diffused redness in the skin. The end result is a more even and bright skin tone.
Another benefit of the Forever Young BBL Photofacial is the stimulation of collagen production that leads to thickening of the skin, leaving you with youthful, rejuvenated, healthy skin.
EXCITING RESEARCH AND EVIDENCE
Exciting new clinical research from Stanford University has revealed that having a Forever Young BBL Photofacial 2+ times a year actually reverses the signs of aging and causes skin cells to behave younger. Younger skin cells produce more collagen and elastin than aged skin cells.
Compelling evidence supports regular long- term BBL treatments will enhance the expression of longevity- related genes in aged skin cells; essentially reversing the aging process and returning skin to a genetically youthful state.
UNDERSTANDING THE EFFECTS OF SUN DAMAGE ON A DEEPER LEVEL
Sun damage is more than skin deep. An unnerving fact is that UVA and UVB exposure not only depletes our collagen, but it actually alters the DNA of our skin cells. This breakdown results in uneven pigmentation, changes in skin texture, loss of elasticity and, increasingly more common, cancer.
The effects of UV exposure are cumulative, becoming more visible as we age. The more exposure we have the greater our risk becomes for developing skin cancer and prematurely aged skin. The same study at Stanford University found an incredible discovery.
This study demonstrated that Forever Young BBL treatments can restore the gene expression pattern of aged human skin to more resemble young skin and, more importantly, healthy skin. Over 1,000 gene expressions became “rejuvenated” to be more like youthful skin resulting in decreased elastosis and more uniform collagen deposition; leading to improvements in fine wrinkles and pigmentation.
Standard BBL and Forever Young BBL will both treat the following issues, but the Forever Young BBL goes a few steps ahead and adds in the actual restoration of younger skin:
Rosacea and Redness
Pigmented Freckles and Age spots
