Stop the clock on skin ageing with forever young BBL treatments. Published research has shown that BBL rejuvenates skin at a genetic level, switching on many genes that are active in youthful skin. In a long-term published clinical study, patients who received regular BBL treatments over the course of a decade looked younger at the end of the study than when they began!
We can fine tune Forever Young BBL for your skin type and for your ideal results. The long term effects have been proven in most skin types, including people with olive to darker skin. Men, women, fair, dark...almost anyone can enjoy the benefits of Forever Young BBL
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. Most people tolerate BBL treatments very well, with the sensation of each pulse of light being similar to a small rubberband snapping against the skin. During a BBL treatment, we use our Cryojet machine, which gently blows super cooled air onto the skin minimising discomfort. An added advantage of the Cryojet is that we are also able to protect the top layers of the skin with the cooled air, so we can often use higher settings which maximise the outcome and beneficial effect of the BBL treatment. If required, we are also able to use topical anaesthetic creams to help reduce the sensation, although with the Cryojet this is seldom necessary.
This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to apply makeup, return to work and resume most of your activities immediately.
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours to a day. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated area followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, 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. We will provide you with complete information about the post treatment care and results.
The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient, and we will personalize a plan based on the level of improvement you desire. We have found most patients benefit from at least 2 treatments approximately 6-8 weeks apart. The first is a more intensive treatment with at least 2 passes of the BBL over the treated area. The second treatment is more focused on problem areas. When we perform your treatment, we are constantly assessing your skin's response and adjust the BBL settings to give you the best response. We may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to optimize your results.
Regular treatments—at least once a year—are thought to be required to slow down skin aging and to help you look younger than at the beginning of your regular treatments.
It is important to follow your post-treatment instructions. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your treated skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
