What is Forever Young BBL?
Forever Young is a proprietary intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment specifically designed to treat the most common signs of aging with regular treatment sessions. As the most powerful IPL device on the market, Forever Young achieves stunning dermal renewal with a multi-pass technique that utilizes multiple wavelengths of light for precise, customizable results.
What Issues Does Forever Young BBL Treat?
Because this treatment can use multiple wavelengths of light for specific results, BBL can treat:
- Pigmented regions (age spots, freckles, etc.)
- Vascular lesions
- Skin laxity
- Uneven skin tone
How Does Forever Young BBL Work?
This IPL treatment from Sciton uses broad-spectrum visible and infrared light to heat layers of skin, stimulating the skin to produce collagen while targeting cosmetic issues like unwanted pigmentation. Not only does this help give skin an even tone and texture throughout the face, but also helps tighten skin depending on a patient’s unique needs and desired goals.
Because the Forever Young device is so powerful, it often can achieve results with fewer treatments than other IPL devices, saving you time and money while getting radiant, youthful skin. The goal of Forever Young is both to correct specific cosmetic concerns, but also to ensure skin continues to look smooth, clear, and wrinkle-free for as long as possible with annual touch-up sessions. This preventative plan is called “Prejuvenation” and can help nearly anyone with youthful skin keep it for longer.
Who is a Good Candidate for Forever Young BBL?
As a totally non-invasive, non-irritating treatment, nearly anyone can enjoy the benefits of Forever Young. It is not recommended for Fitzpatrick skin type 6, however, due to the risk of negative side effects. Anyone who has cosmetic concerns about current aging signs on the face or who wants to ensure their young complexion stays that way is eligible for this IPL treatment.
How Many Forever Young BBL Treatments Do I Need?
Every patient is different and will benefit from different treatment plans with Forever Young BBL. However, most benefit from an initial series of four to six sessions followed by annual maintenance treatments.
With a Forever Young BBL treatment plan, the goal is long-term facial rejuvenation. Some patients benefit from other non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments, such as the Sciton Halo laser, whereas others are satisfied solely with BBL.
