Forever Young BBL
For as long as women and men have been concerned about aging, there have been promises of younger looking skin. Contrary to popular belief, creams and lotions can’t penetrate the skin’s surface. This means they can’t reach the deeper layers of skin where much of the aging process happens.
Introducing Forever Young BBL ™ from Sciton, a revolutionary treatment that sends light energy deep into the skin to boost your body’s natural ability to fight aging. The result? Skin that’s visibly younger looking, year after year!
Forever Young BBL – The Difference
Forever Young BBL is the only device that has been shown to change the expression of genes associated with aging, longevity, and increased lifespan. With regular Forever Young BBL treatments, patients’ skin looks clear, smooth, and much younger.
Forever Young BBL Benefits:
Zero downtime: Patients resume normal activities immediately.
Long lasting results: Studies include patients treated 10+ years ago.study 1
Fast treatment: Average treatment time of 12-15 minutes for a full face.
Effective on all body areas: Face, neck, chest, arms, and hands.
Groundbreaking Study on BBL from Stanford University:
First study to demonstrate BBL treatments can restore gene expression pattern of aged human skin to resemble young skin.
Results: 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.

BBL is shown to halt the visible signs of aging:
The first long-term, visual and clinical evaluation of BBL treatments. Blinded panel of physician evaluators determined BBL treated patients appeared 9 years younger than their actual age.
Results: “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.”

What if there were a treatment that could slow down the aging clock and keep you forever young?
Forever Young BBL is the only device that has been shown to change the expression of genes associated with aging, longevity, and increased lifespan. With regular Forever Young BBL treatments, patients’ skin looks clear, smooth, and much younger. Photo rejuvenation is the only procedure that can treat vascular redness, the appearance of rosacea, pigmented brown spots, sun damage, skin texture, and collagen structure all at once. With the use of BBL therapy — an advanced version of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology — dramatic improvements can now be accomplished with little or no downtime and with very minimal discomfort. Time and lifestyle choices also affect the appearance of our complexion. This aged look may include freckles, rosacea, wrinkles, broken capillaries, dark spots, blotchy skin color, redness of the face and neck, enlarged pore size and uneven pigmentation.
What is BBL (Broadband Light)?
BBL is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles, and sun damage. BBL energy allows the physician to precisely treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results. Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.
In addition to combating skin aging, the following conditions can also be treated with BBL:
• Pigmented Lesions (e.g., freckles, age spots)
• Vascular Lesions (e.g., small blood vessels)
How it works
The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen foundation, an important building block of healthy-looking skin, which leads to increased skin firmness. BBL uses a broad range of energy wavelengths to allow for more complete improvements and evenly-treated skin. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a warm or “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. The procedure is gentle, noninvasive, and safe. A thermoelectric monitoring system adjusts the temperature of your procedure, eliminating the need for pain medication and ensuring that you remain comfortable during treatment. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, however, we may choose to use it on more sensitive areas. The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and our staff will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. You may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine lines and pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated. Our staff will provide you with complete information about the post-treatment care and results.
It is important to follow the aftercare instructions. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors. This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are immediately able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most activities.
