BroadBand Light™ (BBL™) Photofacial
BroadBand Light™ (BBL™), the latest development in anti-aging light treatment or photo-therapy, is now available at Medical Day Spa of Chapel Hill. We have the Sciton Forever Young BBL™ laser, the “Rolls Royce” of broad band light devices.
BroadBand light uses multiple different wavelengths of visible light which makes it more versatile, precise, and effective than standard IPL (intense pulsed light). BroadBand Light (BBL) is the world’s most powerful IPL. It sets a new standard in treating skin conditions.
The light energy absorbed by the targeted areas stimulates the skin cells to regenerate, making the skin smoother, more uniform in color, and more vibrant and youthful in appearance. The photo-thermal energy eliminates small vessels that cause redness as well as reduces unwanted melanin that causes age and sun spots.
BBL is effective for treating these skin conditions:
- Sun damaged skin
- Age spots
- Broken capillaries
- Redness (Rosacea)
- Cherry hemangiomas
- Uneven skin tone
- Aging skin
Contraindications to BBL include:
- Unprotected sun exposure within past 4 weeks
- Use of Accutane within past 6 months
- Melasma (chloasma)
- Fitzpatrick skin type 4 or higher
Reverse Skin Aging
Medical research has shown that Forever Young BBL turns back the clock on skin aging. This study from Stanford University showed that BBL at least once a year delayed visible signs of aging over the 5-11 years that study subjects were followed.
This remarkable finding was further investigated at the genetic level. The gene expression in skin treated with regular BBL was similar to younger skin, consistent with the visible lack of aging.
With regular Forever Young BBL treatments, your skin will look clearer, smoother, and younger.
Treatments are simple to have and there is no downtime.
