If you have pigmented skin conditions and would like to change the way your skin looks by getting rid of those spots that make you look older than you really are, you might want to ask our experts about Forever Young BBL™ treatments. BBL stands for broadband light. This is a highly recognized and effective therapy for things like sunspots and other conditions that are caused by aging and sun damage. Some people refer to BBL treatments as a photofacial.
Broadband light treatments work by delivering light energy to the target areas of the skin. This will gently heat the skin and stimulate the cells to create new collagen. Collagen is that substance that helps to hold things together in the body and helps to provide an even skin tone. The body’s natural ability to create it diminishes with age. The result is that the skin is more prone to developing wrinkles and pigmented spots.
Forever Young BBL™ treatments begin with the skin being cleansed and glasses being provided to cover the eyes. A special device is then used to deliver the light treatments to the targeted areas of the skin.
During treatment, you may feel a slight stinging as the light pulses are delivered. However, most people have no trouble going through this without any kind of anesthesia. In addition, the equipment that is used to deliver the treatment is equipped with devices that help to cool the skin in order to ensure patient comfort.
Forever Young BBL™ treatments utilize a dual lamp unit that is capable of delivering a broad range of wavelengths, making it effective for a variety of skin conditions. The technology makes the brand the most effective equipment in its class. It also has interchangeable filters to make it easier to treat varying conditions with the same device. It has adaptors which make it easier to treat small spots on the skin in a way that limits the effect on the surrounding skin. In addition, it is equipped with precise on-off timing to make the energy delivered during treatment more efficient.
If you have wanted younger-looking skin but have settled into the thought that the effects of too much time in the sun in previous years was something you would have to live with, think again.
