What is a BBL™ Photofacial?
A BBL™ (Broad Band Light) Photofacial is a laser resurfacing technique using Sciton® technology to rejuvenate the skin, reduce the pigment from sun damage, and diminish redness from rosacea. One of the advantages of a BBL™ Photofacial is that there is little or no downtime with this non-invasive procedure. The result of this technique is healthy, younger looking skin.
How does the BBL™ Photofacial work?
With this treatment, the BBL™ Photofacial releases IPL® (intense pulsed light) energy into the skin’s surface to diminish age spots and sun-induced freckles as well as the redness from rosacea. It also treats birthmarks, facial veins and other blemishes to give you a more even skin tone and healthy complexion.
How long does the BBL™ Photofacial take?
The duration of the BBL™ Photofacial depends on the extent of the area to be treated; however, typically, it takes about 15 minutes once everything is set up.
How long does it take to see results?
While optimal results take several sessions spread out over a few weeks, you can see a positive change in just one visit.
How do I know if a BBL™ Photofacial is right for me?
BBL™ Photofacial is right for skin that has noticeable age and sunspots as well as vessels, freckles, birthmarks and other blemishes that cause you to be self-conscious.
Are there any side effects with BBL™ Photofacial technology?
Immediately following the procedure, you may have some redness in the area(s) treated as well as some very minor bruising. These are temporary and go away within a few days.

What is Forever Young BBL™?
Forever Young BBL™ is a skin treatment that utilizes the latest light therapy technology to help reduce the appearance of past sun damage, freckles, and other areas of hyperpigmentation on the skin. It works by heating the top layers of your skin, allowing new skin cells to form, thus creating new collagen. The result is renewed skin that appears younger, smoother, and more radiant.

How does Forever Young BBL™ work?
Forever Young BBL™ is a fast, noninvasive treatment performed in the comfort of our Boca Raton office. It works by applying different wavelengths of light to the skin’s surface. The wavelengths target damaged skin cells, weaken them, and, in doing so, stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This healing process pushes the pigmented areas, such as freckles and sunspots, to the outermost layer of skin where they will naturally flake off over time. Forever Young BBL™ can also be used to treat those unsightly spider veins and even rosacea. Your result? Renewed, brighter, more even skin tone without the pigmentation. The Forever Young BBL™ treatment helps to stimulate collagen production and increase skin cell turnover, leaving you with the skin tone and texture you’ve always wanted.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Essentially all areas of the body can be treated with Forever Young BBL™, including:
