KEEP SKIN HEALTHY, SLOW THE AGING PROCESS: Forever Young BBL – Austin. This maintenance treatment twice per year will do what no cream, product or potion can!
We have all heard of IPL’s and other sun damage or brown spot treatments. A BBL (broadband light treatment) is superior technology to the dated IPL treatment. This skin correcting procedure is a no downtime, painless way to rejuvenate your skin.
First, Kristin will make a plan for you and get your skin looking even, toned and smooth. After correction, Kristin reccommends maintenance BBL treatments twice per year, as BBL light therapy TURNS OFF the genes that cause aging. Yes, you heard that right… Forever Young BBL also promotes collagen production, tightening of skin and a decrease in uneven texture, scarring and fine lines. In a double blind study of dermatologists and plastic surgeons, patients looked 9-10 year younger after treatments.
In August 2015, Kristin Gunn completed a preceptorship with Dr. Patrick Bitter, MD (the developer of the acclaimed FotoFacial procedure using pulsed light to rejuvenate aged skin). Kristin learned hands-on the unique methods Dr. Bitter uses in Hollywood for keeping celebs young and beautiful.
One Forever Young BBL treatment for the full face will take about 20 minutes. It truly is a lunchtime procedure. Gone are the days of burned and blistered skin from dinosaur IPL machines!
Forever Young BBL™ Treatments
Photo rejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment designed to produce younger and healthier-looking skin. As we age, we begin to see visible signs of sun damage. Photo rejuvenation is the only procedure that can treat vascular redness, the appearance of rosacea, pigmented brown spots, sun damage, skin texture, and collagen structure all at once. With the use of BBL therapy — an advanced version of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology — dramatic improvements can now be accomplished with little or no downtime and with very minimal discomfort. Time and lifestyle choices also affect the appearance of our complexion. This aged look may include freckles, rosacea, wrinkles, broken capillaries, dark spots, blotchy skin color, redness of the face and neck, enlarged pore size and uneven pigmentation.
Forever Young BBL treatments are beneficial for the treatment of:
- Rosacea: Treatment reduces the overall redness, flushing and tiny blood vessels associated with the condition and often improves acne breakouts which are common.
- Sun damage to the face (photo-aging): Treatment reduces freckling and irregular pigmentation and creates a more smooth appearance to the skin and even some reduction in pore appearance.
- Sun damage to the chest and back (photo-aging): Treatment reduces the freckling and irregular pigmentation to the chest and/or back and improves the overall appearance of the skin. It also reduces the redness on the chest associated with excessive sun exposure.
- Sun damage to the hands and arms (photo-aging, also called “liver spots”): Treatment reduces the freckling and irregular pigmentation to the hands and even the arms, with improvement in the thin-skin appearance of sun damaged hands.
What Results Can I Expect?
You can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries. People with visible aging from the sun can expect to see their skin become smoother with a reduction in pore size and fading of sun spots. Many patients with rosacea see improvement in breakouts and are able to decrease or discontinue their medications.
What is Involved in Forever Young BBL Treatments?
Each treatment takes approximately 15-30 minutes. Immediately following a treatment, the skin may appear more red and flushed and the brown spots generally appear slightly darker. Over the next several days, the brown spots darken and then subsequently “flake off”.
When Will I See Results?
Even after your first treatment, your skin can feel smoother and will have more even tone. Improvement is gradual and will continue to be more visible after each treatment. Many individuals experience dramatic results only after 1-2 treatments. Some patients will benefit from additional maintenance treatments.
Kristin Gunn has been offering photo rejuvenation since 2006. Our office uses the most advanced FDA approved light system for photo-aging, the Sciton BBL. This system offers contact cooling, the widest variety of filters for a more precise treatment, and the largest “spot size” for faster treatments with less discomfort.
During your consultation, Kristin will thoroughly examine your skin and advise you on which treatments will provide the best results for your specific needs.
