The age-defying benefits of Forever Young BBL

After reviewing several options in non-surgical rejuvenation, we were eager for the arrival of our new Sciton® Joule laser system. The Joule laser is an impressive machine that can reliably perform various treatments, from hair removal and light photofacials to skin tightening and deeper laser peels.

More specifically, Sciton® offers a particular anti-aging treatment called Forever Young BBL™, which addresses our most common patient skin concerns, such as sagging skin and fine lines and wrinkles, without the need of surgery.

The most important quality of Forever Young BBL™ is addressing the underlying layers of patient's skin where we see the most aging occur. This laser treatment is the only device that accurately targets the expression of skin molecules associated with aging, stimulating your body's natural ability to regenerate healthy, new skin.

Most individuals are candidates

Many men and women travel to our office looking for a clearer, smoother complexion and an improvement in skin firmness, elasticity and pigmentation, especially around the holidays since they will most likely be attending events. Almost all individuals are a candidate for the Forever Young BBL™ treatment since the technology is customizable for all skin types.

Forever Young BBL™ overview

During treatment, the Forever Young BBL™ system uses infrared invisible light technology to provide visible complexion improvements to the top layers of skin, while working below in the dermis to revitalize old skin cells at the molecular level. Unlike older lasers, this technology can treat virtually any area on the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. After a recommended series of treatments, our patients see significant age-defying results and a clearer, more even complexion.

Personally, I recommend Forever Young BBL™ for the following aesthetic skin concerns, including:

  • Sun Spots
  • Age Spots
  • Fine Lines
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Skin Firmness, Elasticity and Tone

Recovery after Forever Young BBL™

After treatment, patients leave with a mild red, flushed appearance, which resolves within a few hours. For pigmented skin, the treated pigmented area will darken, fade and then flake off over time, typically within 1 to 2 weeks. Patients also report minimal discomfort with the procedure and there is no recovery or downtime required.

Maintaining your results

While researching the best available laser system, I knew that I would need to offer a skin care line of comparable quality for pre- and post-laser treatment. Our practice has included the ZO Skin Health line as one of the best skin products available. Dr. Zein Obagi's kits are essential for maintaining the results from the Forever Young BBL™ treatment.

Seeking a professional provider

Although Forever Young BBL™ is a non-surgical procedure, be sure to understand your provider's training and qualifications for this treatment. The advice from a board-certified plastic surgeon is important for optimal results. If you do not seek a professional, you may not receive the results you were hoping. Always consult with your potential doctors and dermatologists to find who is best suited for your needs.
