For as long as women and men have been concerned about aging, there have been promises of younger-looking skin.
Skin is in a state of constant turnover, with new cells being created in the deepest layers. This process includes gene expression, which is how a cell receives its genetic code and is a critical part of how skin ages. As more genes associated with aging are activated over time, the structure and appearance of skin changes. There was no way to change it back….until now.
Introducing Forever Young BBL™ (BroadBand Light) - a revolutionary treatment that sends light energy deep into the skin to boost the body's natural ability to fight aging. Skin doesn’t just look younger—it is genetically programmed to be younger!
Only Forever Young BBL™ is clinically proven to stop the skin from aging:
- Unique light treatment works from the inside out
- Ground-breaking study shows how treatment changes gene expression, turning on the genes that keep skin looking young
- Long-term study shows that regular treatments produce skin that looks younger than it did before starting treatments—up to ten years and counting!
- Improvement in skin discoloration, appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone and texture
- Fast, easy, non-invasive procedure with no downtime
- Appropriate for women and men of all ages who wish to improve and maintain the appearance of young, healthy skin
Imagine taking a photo ten years from now and looking better than you do today!
What is gene expression?
Gene expression is the process by which the information encoded in a gene is used to direct the assembly of a protein molecule. Gene expression is part of how your body creates new cells. Your DNA is a unique blueprint that only you have. Certain genes can express themselves (turn on or off) based on factors like aging and other environmental components. As we age, the genes within our skin cells are programmed to express themselves differently than when we were younger.
How does Forever Young BBL™ reprogram the age of my skin?
Forever Young BBL reaches deep into the cell and activates certain genes associated with youth, while turning off other genes tied to aging. As a result, you create more of the kinds of proteins and other building blocks you had when you were younger. New skin cells are actually programmed to be younger, giving you beautiful, youthful skin.
How does Forever Young BBL™ make skin younger?
Ground-breaking research performed at Stanford University shows that BBL influences gene expression, and changes skin at a molecular level. The study showed that literally hundreds of genes that are known to be associated with younger skin were activated while others associated with aging, were turned off.
In addition, a long-term clinical study showed that patients who received regular BBL™ treatments over the course of a decade were judged by doctors to appear 11 years younger than their actual age at the study’s end. In other words, they looked younger than when they started the study.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient, and your clinician will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your clinician may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to optimize your results.
Remember that regular treatments at least once a year have been proven to stop the aging process, allowing patients to look younger than they did when they started treatment 10 years prior.
What areas can be treated?
Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight such as the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.
What will happen during the procedure?
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a warm or quick snapping sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure will typically take up to 30 minutes or less.
How long will it take to recover?
This is a non-invasive procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume normal activities immediately after the treatment.
What should I expect after the treatment?
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated area followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated. Your clinician will provide you with complete information about post-treatment care and results.
What aftercare plan do I need?
It is important to follow your clinician’s treatment plan and avoid direct sun exposure following the treatment. In order to protect your results, daily use of sunblock of at least SPF 30 is highly recommended.
