Forever Young BBL™ for Preventive Skin Care in Appleton, WI
Time marches on, but facial skin doesn’t have to show it. By choosing broadband light for skin rejuvenation at Appleton’s Excelin Medical Spa, anyone looking to delay the development of significant signs of aging can enjoy long-lasting results without surgery.
Dr. Victoria Negrete draws on her education and experience as a board-certified dermatologist to ensure her practice offers a range of skincare solutions to suit her diverse patient’s needs. For skin rejuvenation and preventive treatments, she opted for the cutting-edge technology of Forever Young BBL™, a broadband light system that removes or reduces the appearance of multiple signs of aging.
How Does Forever Young BBL™ Skin Rejuvenation Work?
Changes to the skin that make a person appear older happen naturally as cells age, as well as when they are damaged by exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Forever Young BBL™ addresses both of these problems with intense pulses of light, first by correcting the sun damage, then by impacting deeper to change the expression of genes associated with aging. The light is called “broadband” because it includes wavelengths from all over the light spectrum: visible and infrared.
As light enters the skin, pigmented areas absorb the energy, which turns to heat. Once impacted by the heat, spots can ultimately flake away, redness can fade, and more. The heat also encourages collagen production, which yields smoother, tighter skin over time.
What Can Forever Young BBL™ Treat?
While it is quite effective when it comes to reducing the appearance of pigmented lesions and visible veins, Forever Young BBL™ is particularly known for how it improves the look and feel of skin overall by treating a wide range of signs of aging.
By altering the cells themselves, Forever Young BBL™ accomplishes skin rejuvenation through improvements in skin tone, skin texture, elasticity, and evenness of pigmentation.
Commonly used on the face, this skin rejuvenation treatment can also be used to improve the look of the hands, arms, chest, and neck—areas where signs of aging typically appear. A special design keeps the surface of the skin cool, even as deeper layers heat due to the application of energy.
What to Expect After a Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
Just after a skin rejuvenation session, the skin will appear flushed and may feel like a sunburn, but this redness will fade in a matter of hours. Over the next week or two, spots and other pigmented lesions will darken, then fade and flake away. Longer term results, due to collagen regeneration and the molecular revitalization of skin cells, will become apparent over the following weeks and months.
How Effective is Skin Rejuvenation With Forever Young BBL™?
One treatment is enough to generate noticeable, lasting improvements to the skin, but patients seeking more than skin rejuvenation can enjoy the benefits of preventive care (called “prejuvenation™“) with regular sessions. A retrospective study of more than a dozen patients from their 30s to their 60s found that at least one Forever Young BBL™ treatment a year for five to 11 years kept them looking about 10 years younger than their actual age.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Forever Young BBL™ Skin Rejuvenation?
Because it both heals and prevents further signs of aging, Forever Young BBL™ is appropriate for men and women of all ages who want younger-looking skin. It is especially ideal for patients who want long-lasting results without surgery or the need for post-treatment downtime.
Are There Other Options for Skin Rejuvenation?
The technology that drives Forever Young BBL™ is also used for corrective BBL™ treatments that specifically focus on age spots, cherry angiomas, and other obvious signs of aging, as well as for BBL™ acne treatments that can clear up the common skin condition.
Forever Young BBL™ is unique in its impact on cells’ gene expressions, but there are also other treatments available for skin rejuvenation at Excelin Medical Spa. Many of our treatments, including Vivace™, microneedling and chemical peels both encourage new collagen production and give the skin a healthy glow.
Since sagging skin can also be a sign of aging, Silhouette InstaLift™ is an option for patients who want to change the contours of their face with a minimally invasive treatment lifts the tissue into a more youthful position.
For an overall refreshed look, the Excelin Medical Spa team recommends SilkPeel® or HydraFacial® treatments that exfoliate and hydrate.
Dr. Negrete and the Excelin Medical Spa team can work with each patient to help achieve unique cosmetic goals, from a single skin rejuvenation treatment to a long-term skincare plan designed to maintain a youthful look for years.
