What is Fotofacial treatment?
Fotofacial treatments use broadband light technology to reduce or diminish wrinkles and fine lines that result from aging, active lifestyles, and sun damage. This therapy is used by your dermatologist to precisely treat fine wrinkles, age spots, small facial veins, and a number of other skin blemishes. Forever Young BBL™ is a special procedure that removes unwanted brown and red spots. It also stimulates new collagen and elastin, which will rejuvenate the damaged skin. Most patients notice a brighter face, diminished red lines, a more even skin tone, the elimination of brown spots, and reduction of sagging skin within a few weeks of treatment.
Preparing for the procedure
Before the procedure, a Ballantyne area board-certified dermatologist will review your medical history and conduct a complete physical exam. You and your doctor will thoroughly discuss realistic expectations from Forever Young BBL, the potential risks, and expected outcomes of the procedure. After deciding that you will undergo Broad Band Light therapy; you will need to take care to avoid sunbathing, tanning beds, body waxing, chemical peels, and dermal injections for at least two weeks prior to the procedure. Your dermatologist will also require that you discontinue the use of aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements in an effort to decrease the risk of bleeding. Fotofacial therapy or Forever Young BBL is suitable for the following conditions:
- Acne scars
- Facial redness
- Sun-damaged skin

After Fotofacial therapy
Patients should not expect see any noteworthy changes until weeks after the procedure from Forever Young BBL.
