Skin is in a state of constant turnover, with new cells being created in the deepest layers. This process includes gene expression, which 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.
WHAT IT DOES
Forever Young BBL™ from Sciton is a revolutionary treatment that sends light energy deep into the skin to boost the body’s natural ability to fight aging. With this treatment, the skin doesn’t just look younger, it’s genetically programmed to be younger. BBL influences gene expression and changes skin at a molecular level.
HOW IT WORKS
Forever Young BBL™ reaches deep into the cells and activates certain genes associated with youth, while deactivating other genes tied to aging. As a result, your body creates more of the kinds of proteins and other building blocks that you had when you were younger. New skin cells are programmed to be younger, resulting in beautiful, youthful skin.
WHAT TO EXPECT
HOW IT FEELS
You may feel a brief warming or snapping sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. There is typically no need for topical anaesthetic, however one may be recommended when treating more sensitive areas.
Treatment time may take a few minutes or last up to half an hour, depending on the area being treated.
This is a non-invasive, gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you will be able to return to work, apply makeup and resume most activities immediately. Direct sunlight must be avoided following this treatment until the treated area is completely healed.
The number of treatments varies. Together, we will develop a personalized treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire and the current state of your skin. A regular annual treatment is typically recommended for maintenance.
