In With Skin Article: Forever Young BBL: Cutting Edge Treatment Slows Down Aging Process

May 1, 2013

Thanks to the marvels of medical aesthetics, looking younger than your chronological age is now definitely within your reach. The question is – which treatment, product, or regimen is right for you or your clients? With so many effective options available, the choice can be daunting (not to mention expensive). You want to be sure you’re getting the biggest bang for your beauty buck!


Forever Young BBL is the latest cutting edge technology from Sciton®, the company that has come up with may ways of making us more beautiful – from wrinkle reduction to zit zapping, treating troubled toenails to melting muffin tops. In this latest and greatest offering, the BBL stands for Broadband Light, a modality that actually stimulates changes in the skin at the molecular level. In fact, after years of clinical trials, experts found that “the RNA expression of aging skin treated with Forever Young BBL more closely resemble[d] that of young, untreated skin.” For us non-scientists, that means that skin looked way younger than it was.


Forever Young BBL has additional exciting benefits: there is zero downtime (patients resume normal activities immediately following treatment), the results are long lasting (we’re talking 10+ years), the individual treatment is fast (12-15 minutes, folks), and it can be performed anywhere on the face and body where there are unwanted signs of aging. Its rejuvenation applications can be used to treat all of the effects of photo-aging including hyperpigmentation, spider veins and even benign lesions.


For optimal results, treatments (reported as “gentle” and “not painful”) are spaced several weeks apart, producing gradual but noticeable results. According to Dr. Patrick Bitter, "Patients who maintain a regular regimen of BBL treatments annually can reduce and delay the long term signs of skin aging in a way that looks very natural."


As always, do your research and talk to other medical aestheticians who use this treatment in their practices before deciding if it is right for you or your clients.
