As we age, our skin goes through a lot of changes. Environmental factors such as sun damage, hormone changes, and more, can affect the look and feel of our skin. Luckily, there is science-backed technology using light therapy that can help reverse aging damage at a molecular level: Forever Young BBL Light Therapy.
Vively Body Science offers this exceptional skin rejuvenation treatment and more at our professional med spa in Wayzata, Minnesota. We have over 80 years of combined experience in medical and clinical fields and are owned and operated by physicians. We care deeply about both the science and art behind aesthetic treatments, and we love to deliver personalized care to our patients. Below is a guide of the most important information about our Forever Young BBL treatment.
What is Forever Young BBL?
Forever Young BBL is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to dramatically improve the health and appearance of your skin.
Forever Young BBL effectively targets dyschromia, which is a term for many types of abnormal pigmentation of the skin. Dyschromia can result from environmental factors, genetics, hormonal changes, and aging.
This science-backed light therapy treatment safely targets and helps reverse damage for the following skin concerns:
- Aging skin
- Rosacea and redness
- Sun spots
- Age spots
- Wrinkles and fine lines
What Makes the Forever Young BBL Treatment Unique
Forever Young BBL is the most powerful light therapy device on the market and the only technology that has been scientifically proven to change the expression of genes to closely resemble younger skin cells. This advanced technique offers revolutionary, long lasting results with a fast procedure time, zero downtime, and minimal discomfort.
The Science Behind Broadband Light (BBL™) 🧬
According to a 2012 Stanford University study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, BBL treatment alters the genetic expression of aging skin to closely resemble young skin. Essentially, the treated aged skin’s gene expression closely resembled the gene expression of young untreated skin. As a result, BBL rejuvenates gene expression, making treated skin look younger and renewed.
Other effects of BBL include wound and scar healing on top of the rejuvenating results. These consistent outcomes were identified by comparing BBL-treated individuals to untreated young and aged individuals.
Forever Young BBL is clinically proven to help skin look years younger.
The Stanford University study showed that on a molecular level, BBL improved the appearance of acne, vascular condition, sun spots, and more. You can view Forever Young BBL before and after results and see the effects yourself!
Forever Young BBL Treatment | Vively Membership Options
Our physicians at Vively Body Science recommend Forever Young BBL in a series. You will have an initial series of Forever YoungBBL treatments and maintenance covered if you choose to go with our Age Corrective Membership option.
We offer Age Corrective & Age Management Memberships. With either option, you will receive discounts when you pay for treatments up front. As a bonus, each month you will have five to ten age-rewinding services to choose from for treatment!
We can discuss how many treatments you will need for your skin concerns during your skin consultation with one of our providers. This consultation will include a VISIA skin analysis so we can have as much information as possible in order to provide the best recommendations.
How Forever Young BBL Treatment Works
To give an idea of how this treatment works at Vively Body Science, we’ve broken down the full process below.
You will meet with one of our light therapy specialists to discuss the Forever Young BBL treatment, your skin concerns, and how we can help you achieve your goals. Based on this initial consultation, we will create an individualized plan made for your desired results with Forever Young BBL treatment.
The procedure causes minimal, if any, discomfort. During the procedure you will relax in our comfort-focused treatment room, and your specialist will perform the light therapy treatment.
The specialist will use a multi-pass approach to treat the skin:
- The base pass treats the overall appearance of the skin.
- The corrective-vascular pass treats small visible vessels.
- The third pass targets pigmented lesions and other skin issues.
- The fourth pass, SkinTyte, uses deep bulk heating to stimulate the tissues from within to tighten skin and boost your results.
Forever Young BBL Treatment Aftercare
After the procedure, you can resume your skincare routine and apply a mineral-based sunscreen to protect your skin. Your Vively clinician will advise you on when it is appropriate to restart other types of at-home treatments.
The Benefits of Forever Young BBL
Fast procedure time
Forever Young BBL technology allows clinicians to treat up to 4 times faster than other light therapy treatments. This makes it easier for patients to feel relaxed and comfortable while still producing a dramatic difference in the appearance and health of the skin.
Little to no downtime
Many laser skin treatments require days of downtime for skin to recover. Skin may be sensitive, red, and peeling throughout recovery. You may even be unable to wear makeup. With Forever Young BBL, you gain rejuvenating results without the discomfort or recovery period.
Minimal procedure discomfort
Some skin laser treatments require topical anesthetic because of the pain associated with them. This isn’t the case for Forever Young BBL. Patients report very minimal, if any, pain or discomfort during the procedure—some may even find it relaxing.
Long lasting results
Your results can take off years in skin appearance, and we recommend maintenance Forever Young BBL treatments to maintain and continue to improve the youthful appearance of your skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does a Forever Young BBL treatment hurt?
Forever Young BBL treatment is very tolerable for most people. Light therapy treatment is non-invasive; however, some patients report the sensation of mild heat or zapping during treatment. Some are also sensitive/aware of the flashing light, though you will wear protective eye goggles during the procedure.
How long is Forever Young BBL treatment recovery?
Recovery time is minimal. In most cases, you can return directly to your normal routine post-treatment.
How long does a Forever Young BBL procedure take?
Depending on the individual patient’s treatment, Forever Young BBL can take 30-45 minutes to complete. Your specialist will explain the length of the procedure based on your treatment plan.
How many Forever Young BBL treatments do I need?
The number of Forever Young BBL treatments you need varies between patients. Your skin’s health and appearance will improve with each treatment. Typically three or four corrective treatments are necessary.
Keep in mind this all depends on environmental damage and the general health of your skin at the beginning. We recommend two to four maintenance treatments per year to retain maximum results.
