Broad Band Light (BBL) therapy consists of a series of 4 to 6 treatments in which a broad spectrum of light is transmitted through a small, smooth transparent hand piece gently placed over the skin. BBL passes through the top layer of skin (epidermis) and penetrates to the deeper layer (dermis) where blood vessels, pigment cells, and collagen are found. Because the epidermis is unharmed, the severe redness and peeling associated with traditional laser skin resurfacing is avoided. The gentle, non-ablative treatments can be used to treat the face, chest, neck and hands — virtually anywhere that sun damage shows. Intense pulsed light also reduces brown spots, erases broken capillaries, smoothes roughly textured skin, and diminishes flushing or redness of the face associated with Rosacea. BBL treatment is ideal for patients with active lifestyles as it requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects.
Patients that have been treated with Forever Young BBL over the past 9 years have noticed that they appeared not to have aged over the nine years and looked 10 years younger than their actual age.
