Women and men have been concerned about aging for a very long time and there have been promises for younger looking skin. Skin is in a state of constant turnover, with new cells being creating within the deepest of layers. This process includes gene expression, which is how a cell receives its genetic code. Its is also a very critical part of how skin ages. As more genes associated with aging are activated over time, the structure and appearance of skin changes and there is no way to change it back up until now.
Introducing Forever Young BBL ™, a revolutionary treatment that sends light energy deep into skin to boost the body’s natural ability to fight aging.
How does it work?
The light energy delivered by the Forever Young BBL™ will gently heat up the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen. This will help 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 target and eliminate many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.
A Forever Young BBL™ treatment, previously known as Fotofacial, is treatment with 3-4 separate filters. Each filter has a different target in the skin. Pass 1 and 2 target the unwanted pigment and redness which will improve skin tone and textures resulting in a youthful bright face. A third pass with SkinTyte can be added to minimize sagging skin. Visible benefits are noted after 5 intial monthly treatments. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 3-6 months to slow down aging skin.
What Body Areas Can Be Treated?
All areas of the body can be treated with BBL including: face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, hands, back, tummy and legs. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sun light.
Are You A Candidate?
Many men and women travel to our office looking for a clearer, smoother complexion and an improvement in skin firmness, elasticity and pigmentation. Almost all individuals are candidates for Forever Young BBL ™ treatment since the technology is customizable for all skin types.
Is It Painful?
BBL delivers intense pulsed light into the skin which feels warm. Some areas may be more sensitive than others, however we find patients tolerate BBL really well.
Is There Downtime?
This depends upon the skin condition being treated and the level of energy used. In most cases you can apply makeup immediately so there is hardly any downtime.
How Many Treatments Will I Need To See Results?
This depends on your skin needs and goals. Our staff will determine this at your initial consultation. The average is 2-4 treatments.
What Is The Recovery From BBL Like?
Each treatment results in gradual lightening and improvement of pigmentary and vascular imperfections. Temporary pinkness of your skin lasts a very short time. Most people are able to return to work and normal activities immediately after treatment. Brown spots may temporarily go darker before they lighten, but an improvement in brown and pink spots are usually apparent before the next treatment. Improvements in skin texture are noticed towards the end of the series of treatments.
Any After Care Instructions?
It is important not to wipe off the microcrusts as they will fall off when you keep the skin moisturized. Sun protection is a paramount to minimize any risk of hyperpigmentation.
Forever Young BBL™ is just one of many laser skin treatments offered at Montage. From your initial consultation, our customized plan puts your safety, comfort and goals on the top of the priority list will be provided.
