Forever Young BBL or Broadband Light is an innovative non-invasive treatment to reduce the signs of aging and promote skin rejuvenation. The treatment has been cleared by the FDA for benign pigmented lesions, cutaneous lesions, cutaneous vascular lesions, hair reduction, and pustular inflammatory acne vulgaris. From a cosmetic point of view, it is also applied for anti-aging outcomes and alteration of gene expression, but it is not FDA cleared for this purpose.
Non-surgical innovative treatments such as Forever Young BBL can be used effectively for patients who are keen to improve their appearance, but are either unfit or unwilling to opt for surgery.
Forever Young BBL BroadBand Light Before & After Photos
Forever Young BBL is based on an innovative Broadband Light technology. The BBL model includes a unique flash lamp technology, Smart Filters that are interchangeable, Finesse Adapters and precision thermoelectric cooling. The model uses advanced dual lamp technology with each lamp supplying 50 percent of the energy needed during the procedure.
The broad range of wavelengths with this technology allows targeted treatment for a number of skin conditions with effective results in a conservative manner. BBL has emerged as a comprehensive and versatile technique that employs broadband light to maximum benefit with minimal exposure. Patients who are looking for substitutes to plastic surgery for skin enhancement and anti-aging may consider the BBL procedure.
Groundbreaking Study on BBL
Stanford University carried out a pilot study called “Rejuvenation of Gene Expression Pattern of Aged Human Skin by Broadband Light Treatment.” The study brought forth scientific evidence that regular maintenance treatments using Forever Young BBL can delay the aging process of the skin and rejuvenate the current appearance of the skin. The study by Stanford University became the first one of its kind that showed BBL treatments can restore gene expression pattern of aging human skin to appear more youthful.
The results of the study revealed that more than a thousand gene expressions became rejuvenated and resembled younger skin, leading to reduced elastosis and more even deposition of collagen. This had an overall effect of improvements in pigmentation and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The study was published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. The outcomes of the study have been encouraging enough for many plastic surgeons to recommend Forever Young BBL to patients who are looking for non-invasive anti-aging treatments.
The results of the study support the hypothesis that the regulators of aging process in the human skin can be altered with the application of BBL technology. The treatment can lead to functional change rather than just a superficially aesthetic change in appearance. Youthfulness of the skin may occur due to the differences observed in gene expression patterns of aging skin becoming more like younger skin.
Other Key Benefits of BBL
Forever Young BBL is an excellent choice of non-invasive treatment for patients who wish to avoid cosmetic surgery for skin rejuvenation. The duration of the procedure is short, but it will depend on the extent of area to be treated. For instance, treatment for the entire face can be completed within an average time of 12 to 15 minutes.
Recovery period is nil, and patients can resume their regular activities immediately. This makes it an ideal option for busy people who are looking for treatment options with zero downtime. The treatment is effective on all areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, hands, and chest.
