The idea of eternal youth has been the dream of mankind for millennia. Sadly, the reality is that the sun, years of life, and every day wear and tear take a dramatic toll on our appearance.
The sun can turn our skin spotty, create red patches, as well as create a whole host of other skin conditions that prematurely age you and deprive your skin of radiance. There are a lot of products that promise to revitalize your skin. Unfortunately, many of these products are either very expensive or ineffective.
Broadband Light Treatments with Forever Young, on the other hand, are an effective, quick, and a safe way to restore your skin to its youthful luster. Each treatment is personalized to meet your needs with the goal of providing you with the greatest results possible.
How Do BroadBand Light Treatments Work?
BBL treatments work by delivering light energy to the upper layers of your skin. This energy heats the skin and stimulates collagen growth. Collagen is an important key when it comes to keeping your skin looking healthy, vibrant, and youthful.
Increased collagen production can make your skin smoother, more vibrant, and can give it an even tone by blending your natural colors. The photothermal energy produced a by BBL treatments can also minimize the appearance of blood vessels and unwanted melanin that can cause your face to look red or spotty.
What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated with BBL?
The most common areas of the body that are treated with BBL are the face, chest, and hands. These are the parts of your body that are most exposed to the sun and that show the most signs of aging.
According to a study performed by Stanford University, BBL treatments can restore the gene expression patterns of aged human skin to resemble young skin. Many patients in this study looked like they were nine years younger than they were after treatment.
Does the Procedure Hurt?
The procedure is not painful. During the procedure, we will supply you with safety glasses to protect your eyes. When the pulses of light come into contact with your skin, you may feel a sensation that is similar to what it feels like to get snapped in the arm with a rubber band.
The entire procedure is very quick. You should expect to spend between 30 minutes to one hour getting treated.
What Will I Experience after the Treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, you’re going to have a little redness, but that’s going to go away in a couple of hours. You may notice that some of your age spots or sunspots get darker. This is temporary and will be followed by the age spots fading away and flaking off.
In the days following treatment, you’re going to notice that your fine lines are less noticeable, your pores are smaller, and your skin feels smoother. While you will notice results after the first treatment, for optimal results we will likely recommend multiple treatments. All of this will be discussed with you during your first appointment.
You do not have to deal with prematurely aged skin a moment longer. We warmly invite you to contact Dr. Gavrila in Annapolis, Baltimore and Arlington and schedule a consultation. It is Dr. Gavrila’s belief that a youthful appearance and beauty can be achieved and highlighted at any age.
