1. What is the BBL Forever Young treament?

The Forever Young BBL (BroadBand Light) laser treatment is a skin rejuvenation procedure that uses BroadBand Light (BBL) technology to target skin imperfections. This safe, fast and non-invasive technique helps to regain a more youthful, luminous appearance to your skin. It’s an upgraded version of the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).

2. How does BroadBand light works?

The BroadBand light is an advanced photorejuvenation treatment that used the IPL technology. It generates a broad spectrum of light pulses to penetrate the skin’s layer and target accurately damaged skin and pigmentation spots. Through repeated blasts of high-intensity light energy, the heat of the laser treatment destroys damaged cells and stimulates collagen production, which will grow new skin cells. During the treatment you will wear dark glasses to protect your eyes.

BBL treatment is very helpful with a variety of skin conditions linked to aging skin and sun damage. It is effective in reducing age spots (or liver spots), sun spots, freckles, broken capillaries, uneven pigmentation, dilated pores and also to treat rosacea. It can also be used as a preventive treatment for signs of aging.

4. What areas of the body can be treated with BBL Forever Young?

The Forever Young BBL treatment is versatile and can be used on different parts of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and other sun-exposed areas where the skin shows signs of damage.

5. Is the BroadBand Light technology painful?

Most of our patients describe BBL laser treatments as a sensation of mild heat on the treatment area, but generally well tolerated. Generally, no topical anesthetic is required. However, your skin care specialist may choose to use one, depending on your sensitivity.

6. How long does a BBL treatment take?

The treatment is very fast and takes around 15 minutes, depending on the area you are looking to treat, as well as the treatment you are receiving. The treatment time varies from patient to patient.

7. How many sessions of Forever Young BBL are needed to see results?

Although results can vary from one individual to another, most of our patients see visible changes after a series of multiple treatments, usually from three treatments to five, spaced a few weeks apart. Your skin care specialist will customize a treatment plan based on your skin tone, skin condition and expected results. Ask for a free first consultation with our specialists.

8. Are there any risks or side effects associated with intensed pulsed light?

Side effects of intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy are generally minimal and temporary for your skin. There may be slight redness or swelling few hours after treatment, but these effects quickly disappear. Following post-treatment guidelines helps minimize these effects, allowing patients to experience optimal results.

9. What aftercare is needed for Forever Young BBL?

Your skin care specialist will provide you some post-treatment guidelines that are important to follow, such as specific skincare products and their application instructions. Due to increased UV sensitivity, you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed, including tanning beds. The use of tanning creams is also not recommended.

10. Who is a good candidate for BBL Forever Young treatment?

Good candidates for Broadband Light treatments are women and men looking to improve the overall quality of their skin (skin tone and skin texture), reduce signs of aging, target sun damage and treat skin imperfections without resorting to an invasive procedure such as plastic surgeons. Broadband light therapy works less for people with darker skin tones. There is no specific age range to start Forever Young BBL, but you can start preventative treatments as early as age 25.

11. What are the expected results and how long do they last?

The results of Forever Young BBL treatment are progressive and may vary from person to person. Smoother skin, reduced dark spots and a more youthful appearance can be observed after each session. Results can last for several months, especially with regular maintenance sessions.

12. Can BBL Forever Young be combined with other treatments?

Yes you can! At ELNA Esthetics, we recommend the powerful combination of Forever Young BBL with the Halo facial treatment , which is a laser treatment. After treating your kin surface with BBL, the Halo will treat deeper layers of the skin working to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improving overall texture. This combination will improve the overall glowing appearance of your skin!
