We have some exciting news to share with you…there is.! You can look as young as you feel with Forever Young BBL™ treatments. A study conducted by Stanford Dermatologists revealed patients who had BBL treatments over a nine year period appeared not to have aged and they actually looked ten years younger than their actual age! The patients who participated in this study received their treatments with Sciton’s advanced BBL (broadband light) device, which we are proud to have introduced to our patients in 2012.
How it works
Sciton’s BBL devices’ is sophisticated technology optimally delivers infrared and visible light penetrating the outer and deeper layers of the skin stimulating changes at a molecular level and visible changes in the outer layers. The gene expression of older damaged skin cells change and more closely resemble the genes expressed in younger skin cells. These genes are involved with aging and longevity. The cells are reinvigorated and over time the skin looks much younger. The result is improvement in skin firmness, elasticity and appearance Patients who receive regular treatments experience clearer, smooth and more youthful.
