SLOW DOWN THE CLOCK
Changes to the skin will occur over time, due to sun exposure, gravity and the passage of time. While you can’t do anything to stop the natural aging process, you can slow down the clock with targeted treatments designed to address those wrinkles, brown spots and skin laxity. At Cross Hudson, we offer a solution to these changes using a revolutionary treatment called Forever Young BBL.
WHAT IS BBL?
BBL stands for broadband light, which is a unique laser treatment that uses different light wavelengths to address a variety of skin concerns in a single procedure. The light pulses deliver gentle heating to the underlying dermal layers to coagulate tissue and stimulate collagen production for natural results you can see right away and months after your treatment. Unlike other anti-aging procedures, Forever Young BBL has been scientifically proven to reverse the aging process, restoring youthful vibrancy to your skin.
TREATMENT BENEFITS OF FOREVER YOUNG BROADBAND LIGHT
Unlike other laser treatments, the Forever Young BBL is appropriate to use on nearly any skin type and tone. In addition to treating the face, the procedure can turn back time on areas like the neck, chest and backs of the hands. Dr. Mordkovich will assess your skin condition and concerns personally to determine whether Forever Young BBL will provide you with your desired results. Treatment benefits include:
- Pigmented skin lesions
- Age spots and freckles
- Ruptured capillaries (spider veins)
- Diffuse redness, often due to rosacea
- Acne breakouts
- Dull skin appearance
- Fine lines around the eyes and mouth
- Mild skin laxity
WHAT THE SCIENCE SAYS
While there is no denying the aesthetic benefits of Forever Young BBL, scientists have taken the process further to show the treatment reverses signs of aging at a deeper level. Researchers at Stanford University conducted a study titled, “Rejuvenation of Gene Expression Pattern of Aged Human Skin by Broadband Light Treatment,” which found that a patient’s gene expression was altered through these treatments to more closely resemble that of a younger person. These findings indicate that not only do BBL treatments work to enhance your appearance; they slow down the aging process to produce enduring results.
ABOUT YOUR PROCEDURE
Forever Young BBL treatments are very tolerable for our patients, with many comparing the sensation as the light is delivered to a rubber band snapping against the skin. If you are concerned about your comfort level during your procedure, a topical numbing cream is an option. A handpiece is guided across the treatment area, which administers the pulses of light into the various dermal layers. Most BBL treatments are relatively quick, taking anywhere from a few minutes to a half-hour, depending on the area to be addressed.
NO RECOVERY TIME, SUPERIOR RESULTS
There is no downtime needed after a Forever Young BBL treatment. You may find your skin is slightly tender and red after your procedure, similar to when you get a sunburn. However, those side effects are not usually bothersome enough to interfere with your daily activities and subside on their own within a day or two. You do need to protect your skin from sun exposure for a week or two after treatment because the skin is more vulnerable to damage as it heals.
While you will see positive results after a single appointment, we usually recommend a series of four treatment sessions over the course of a year to achieve the best possible outcome. Regular maintenance is the key to success with this procedure, allowing you to keep up your beautiful, vibrant results over the long term.
Forever Young BBL slows the effects of the aging process, allowing you to enjoy the look and feel of more youthful skin. To find out more about this innovative treatment, contact Cross Hudson Plastic Surgery today at 201-751-9490.
