About Forever Young BBL

Defy your genetics by making your skin look younger, clearer, and smoother with Sciton Forever Young BBL photofacial treatments. Traditional broadband light treatments target hyperpigmentation, such as age spots, sun damage, and uneven skin tone. And while Forever Young BBL is very effective at treating those concerns, the technology also tightens the skin through deep heating of structural tissues, erasing wrinkles and making the skin appear firm and strong. Forever Young BBL has been shown to actually reverse aging genes that have begun to degrade, causing them to enliven and resemble younger skin. It is the only technology that has been shown to reverse the signs of aging in this way. Treatments can be performed at Bella Lago Aesthetics, the Tahoe/Truckee MedSpa for Charles P. Virden, MD. One of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Virden's skilled laser technicians will create a treatment plan based on the patient's goals and perform the quick, painless treatments.

Best Candidates

A photofacial is perfect for anyone who is concerned about his or her aged skin and wants to look younger. This Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved procedure is noninvasive and works well on all areas of the face to target lines, wrinkles and folds. Patients with pigmentation issues, sun-damaged skin, large pores or freckles are also good candidates for this treatment. Photofacials work best on light-skinned individuals who don’t tan.

During the Procedure

Before the procedure, the patient will be given protective eyewear to put on to prevent any damage from the light source. The technician will apply a cooling gel on the treatment area and then place the handheld light source over the area. Varying wavelengths will be penetrated by the skin in order to reach deep levels of the skin. There should be little to no pain with most patients experiencing a slight sting like a rubber band snap. The time of the treatment varies on the size of the treatment area, as well as the condition of the patient’s skin.

Other Considerations

Since this is a noninvasive treatment, there is no downtime and most patients can return to his or her daily activities immediately after. Common side effects include some redness, splotchy areas or skin darkening that should subside within a few hours. As the skin heals, it will look noticeably younger, smoother and more even-toned with smaller pores. To achieve best results, a series of sessions are needed, which are spaced a few weeks apart.
