Donaldson Plastic Surgery uses the advanced laser technology of the Sciton Forever Young BBL to enhance the youthful appearance of skin. This light therapy treatment can target conditions such as age spots, brown spots, unwanted freckles, wrinkles, and fine lines. Our aesthetic team will work with you to determine your target areas and desired results. This non-invasive treatment is painless and works well for both men and women. Reduce the signs of sun damage and restore your skin’s smoothness and natural beauty with Forever Young BBL.
The Sciton Forever Young BBL is the only device available with scientifically-backed research showing the change in gene expression in skin cells that results in younger, clearer skin. Your skin will appear bright and radiant as the natural breakdown of elastin slows and new collagen growth is stimulated. In addition to this versatile BBL treatment, our team also specializes in several different broadband light treatments to address different aesthetic goals.
The Sciton laser delivers light energy pulses to gradually heat the upper layers of skin. This heat will be absorbed by the skin, which stimulates new collagen in the skin cells. During the treatment, your eyes will be protected from the laser using safety glasses. The procedure is gentle and should not hurt. Patients often describe the laser sensation as similar to a light rubber band snapping against the skin. Each appointment will only take a few minutes to complete.
The BBL photofacial procedure uses different filters and wavelengths during each stage of the treatment to achieve highly targeted results, including increased firmness and elasticity as well as the balancing of skin tone and texture. In fact, according to a study from Stanford University, the innovative technology of the broadband light actually changes the gene expression of skin cells at the molecular level, making them behave like younger cells.
Our aesthetic team will work with you to create a customized treatment plan according to your specific desired results. The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, minimize brown spots and age spots on the face, and tighten skin on the neck. In addition to using the laser to achieve optimal results on the face and neck, Dr. Donaldson uses the Forever Young BBL treatment to reduce signs of aging and sun damage on the hands, chest, and shoulders.
This procedure is non-invasive and therefore requires virtually no downtime. However, it is important to closely follow the BBL laser recovery instructions that Dr. Donaldson and the aesthetic team provide after treatment. As part of your photofacial aftercare plan, avoid direct exposure to sunlight until skin is completely healed. This includes wearing sunscreen with at least SPF 15 and using protective coverings while outside.
Generally, you can return to work or regular activities and apply makeup immediately after the BBL laser treatment. It is common to notice some redness in the treated areas, but this should dissipate after a few hours. In the case of pigmentation, you may observe darkening of the area and skin flaking, which will go away over time.
Each BBL treatment plan is customized to the patient, so your results will vary depending on your targeted areas and desired results. However, most patients notice results after 3-5 treatments, which are usually scheduled at regular intervals every 3-6 weeks.
The results of the Forever Young BBL treatment are permanent. However, the treatment does not prevent your skin from continuing to age naturally. We recommend additional photofacial treatments every 3-6 months to maintain optimal results. Daily sunscreen use can also help maintain your skin’s youthful appearance.
The IPL treatment cost will vary depending on your customized treatment plan and desired results.
