Forever Young BBL™
Broadband light treatments are commonly known by the tradename, Forever Young BBL™, and are also called Fotofacial treatments. Forever Young BBL™ uses pulsing laser light to help reduce some of the signs of aging skin. Fotofacial treatments are ideally suited for those who want to remove or lessen the appearance of age spots and other blemishes that are the result of years of exposure to the sun. Your Charlotte dermatologist can use Fotofacial treatments to help improve your skin tone and to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles and reduce. Broadband light treatments are also effective for treating the redness from broken capillaries, and some cases of rosacea.
How Forever Young BBL™ works
Before your Forever Young BBL™ treatment, your Charlotte dermatologist will assess the condition of your skin. She or he will explain the amount of damage and will discuss your desired results. It works because A broad spectrum of light is transmitted through a hand piece that is gently placed on the skin. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by the pigmented areas like sunspots or age spots. The age spots break down, and your body naturally removes the injured tissue. Over time, your skin will be left with a more even and youthful appearance. Broadband light also stimulates collagen production, which will enhance your skin tone and smooth fine wrinkles. Broadband light therapy can be applied to the face, chest, neck and hands to improve the effects of sun damage and other signs of aging skin such as:
- Sun spots, age spots, and freckles
- Uneven skin pigmentation
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Facial redness from broken capillaries and rosacea
BBL™ treatments are convenient because you can expect little down time. Your face may appear red or flushed, but this usually fades within a few hours. Initially, problem areas of dark pigmentation may become temporarily darker, and then peeling off in 10-14 days. You can apply makeup immediately after your treatment, allowing you to return to your daily activities. Your Charlotte dermatologist may recommend multiple treatments, depending upon your desired results. However, with each treatment your skin should become smoother, radiant, and evenly colored.
