What is Forever Young BBL™?

Forever Young BBL™ is an innovative technology that delivers light therapy to target telltale signs of aging and sun damage -- ultimately unveiling a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. It can also minimize flushing caused by rosacea and age spots due to sun exposure, restoring the healthy glow of a youthful complexion.

Clinically-proven results

A clinical study on BroadBand Light from Stanford University reveals that Forever Young BBL™ laser can restore gene expression of aged human skin to resemble much younger skin. In fact, patients who had utilized Forever Young BBL™ over a seven-year period actually looked younger than they had seven years earlier.

How does Forever Young BBL™ work?

A Comprehensive, Personalized Approach

  • Forever Young BBL™ utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver beautiful results. The BBL laser energy gently heats the upper layers of skin, stimulating new collagen production. This process gives the skin a firmer and smoother appearance, along with a more even skin tone.
  • The photo-thermal energy clears away fine vessels that cause redness and unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.
  • Scientific evidence demonstrates that regular Forever Young BBL™ treatments functionally rejuvenate the skin and delay aging. Over time, the skin looks more youthful, refreshed and rejuvenated.

Introducing BBL ForeverYoung HERO

BBL HERO is a monumental advance in light-based skin resurfacing. It is faster, more effective, and more affordable than previous treatment modalities. BBL HERO produces improvements in skin tone and texture and smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles while making the skin firmer, brighter, and far smoother.

BBL HERO reduces many of the most visible signs of aging at any place on the body, treating aged skin and age spots, sun damage, fine lines, redness, laxity and rosacea to give you more youthful-looking and healthier skin with improved skin elasticity and a more even skin tone and texture.

BBL HERO treatment is made faster, more effective, and more comfortable as the device allows for the use of higher energy levels to be used safely and without adverse effects on the skin. That translates into a more effective treatment per given unit of time, and less total treatments required, thus making it more accessible to many of our patients.
