This revolutionary technology can handle everything from teens struggling with hormonal acne to adults experiencing adult-onset acne. Sciton Forever Clear BBL™ treatment combines blue, yellow, and infrared light to eliminate bacteria, reduce inflammation, and promote the body’s natural healing process. This process will restore the skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant, and younger.
The Journal of Investigative Dermatology recently published a new study that shows Sciton BroadBand Light (BBLTM) treatments can change the expression of genes associated with the aging process to more closely resemble young skin. A hypothesis supports the study that regulators of aging can be altered in human skin using BBL technology to provide a functional change rather than just a cosmetic mimic of youthful appearance. With the proper administration of treatment, the procedure will lead to collagen remodeling, a proliferation of active fibroblasts, and treating over-acting sebaceous glands that reduce acne and improve acne scarring non-ablatively.
How Does The Sciton ForeverYoung BBL Work?
Sciton ForeverYoung BBL Laser is for anyone looking to improve the appearance and feel of the skin. Since laser technology and laser therapy have evolved over the years, there are now numerous ways in which they can be beneficial for the skin. Broadband Light Treatments, or BBL for short, are FDA-approved procedures intended to treat various skin conditions and irregularities, even acne problems.
One of the newest Broadband Light Treatments is the Sciton ForeverYoung BBL, using the IPL or Intense Pulse Light. With the help of ForeverYoung BBL, pulsed infrared and visible light energy heats the upper layers of the skin, gets absorbed, and targets the irregularities of the skin. Aside from eliminating the melanin caused by sun damage, the heat also helps produce new collagen – critical in reforming and rejuvenating new skin.
What Benefits Does Sciton Forever Young BBL Offer?
Below are the known benefits of the ScitonForever Young BBL™ treatment:
Treats Common Skin Concerns
Not only can Sciton Forever Young BBL restore damaged skin, but it also offers age-defying benefits. This Broadband Light treatment safely and precisely treats several skin conditions anywhere on the body, including sun damage, sun spots, rosacea, age spots, facial veins, and coarse hair growth.
Although correcting skin imperfections is remarkable, Forever Young BBL also targets the skin cells. The gene’s expression associated with the aging process can be altered using this treatment to mimic the younger’s skin appearance and feel.
Forever Young Anywhere, Anytime
The treatment is effective on all body areas, including the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. To determine if the treatment suits the individual, it is best to consult a professional provider before receiving the treatment.
Non-invasive, No Downtime
One benefit of Sciton Forever Young BBL is an entirely non-invasive treatment, which means no incisions or surgical methods are involved. The treatment is simple, relatively quick, and generally recommended 3 to 4 times yearly to slow down the aging process. After the procedure, a patient can immediately resume their normal activities.
According to further studies, patients with regular Forever Young BBL treatments see long-lasting results. In addition, these studies include patients who were treated more than ten years ago. Scion Forever Young BBL makes patients’ skin look smoother, more transparent, and younger.
What To Expect From Sciton Forever Young?
The procedure varies based on the treated areas and the number of “passes” made. During a consultation appointment, goals are discussed to set proper expectations based on the personalized treatment plan. BBL is a series of very bright light flashes, and a patient will feel a slight snap, like a finger-flick, on the surface of their skin during treatment.
Upon completion, the skin may feel warm and slightly reddened for an hour or two. This usually dissipates quickly, and can use cool compresses to ease discomfort. The patient will be advised regarding face washing, moisturizing, and skin care products.
It is best to follow all aftercare instructions for optimal results. The dark spots on the skin may turn darker, like coffee grounds, over the next 24-48 hours and flake off within 10-14 days, leaving beautifully even-toned skin. The patient can resume normal activities the day after treatment since the skin does not peel.
What Skin Conditions Can Forever Young BBL™ Treatment Address?
The Sciton BBL laser treatment can improve upon the following skin concerns:
• Pore reduction
• Skin pigmentation
• Uneven skin
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Acne, pimples, cystic breakouts
• Dark, red, or brown spots
• Spider veins
• Reduce fine lines
• Skin tightening
How Soon Will I See The Result?
The skin will continue to heal for the weeks following the treatments. Results of lightened sun damage spots and fine lines can be seen after the first treatment and well beyond.
Is There An Aftercare?
Patients can expect the following after treatment:
- For the first 24-48 hours after the treatment, the patient can experience a mild sunburn-like sensation on the treated area. In this case, they can apply cold compresses to help relieve the sunburn-like feeling.
- These may be applied as often as ten minutes per hour on the day of the treatment. Gentle moisturizers or products containing aloe vera used following the treatment can also have a soothing effect.
- An antibiotic ointment should be utilized for blistering, crusting, or breaks in the skin.
- Darkening of pigmented lesions is a normal response, and they may continue to darken over the next 24-48 hours gradually. Darkened lesions may progress to scabs or crusting and start flaking off in 2-3 days. The lesion is usually healed in 7-10 days and will continue to fade over the next 2-4 weeks, so it’s best not to pick, scratch, or remove scabs or crusting.
- Avoid aggressive scrubbing and exfoliants, brushes, and loofa sponges until the treatment area has returned to its pre-treated condition.
