BBL™: “The Fountain Youth” Treatment
What if there was a treatment that could slow down the aging clock and keep you forever young?
New medical studies suggest that the “fountain of youth” may exist after all…well at least for aged skin anyway! Scientific evidence demonstrates that regular maintenance treatments using the Forever Young BBL™ system by Sciton functionally rejuvenates skin and delays the skin aging process. According to a study by dermatologist Dr. Anne Lynn S. Chang of Stanford University School of medicine, published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, after exposure to BBL™ aged skins gene expression patterns change and becoming more like that of young skin. What is gene expression? As your skin cells age, the genes of those cells begin to “express” themselves like that of an “old person” because they, like everything else, do in fact get old. But who wants that? I want my young genes back, where are my young gene expressers? Alas they are gone, but with BBL™ treatments we can begin to turn back the clock at the molecular level and as these changes occur we can begin to see an improvement in the appearance of various skin concerns such as acne, sun spots, freckles and vascular conditions . Further research by renowned dermatologist Dr. Patrick H. Bitter, Jr. of Advanced Aesthetics shows that with long term regular intervals of BBL™ treatments the skins appearance improves dramatically by reducing the visible signs of aging and UV damage. The same study goes on to find that annual BBL™ therapy gives results that show only one year of age over an eight year span of time!
So how exactly does Broadband Light work to make the skin look younger, healthier, more rejuvenated? Not to be confused with traditional laser therapy, the light energy from Broadband Light (BBL™ ) uses both inferred and visible light to safely and gently penetrate the epidermis (top layer of skin) and dermis (deeper layer of skin) to stimulate changes at both the molecular and visible level of the skin. After BBL™ exposure, the gene expression of older damaged skin cells change and will more closely resemble the genes expressed in younger skin cells. Skin is reinvigorated and over time the skin looks much younger with visible improvements in firmness, elasticity and pigmentation. Simply put, BBL™ makes your old skin cells behave more like that of young healthy skin cells. With regular BBL™ treatments the skin is smoother, clearer and generally more youthful in appearance. This virtually painless treatment requires minimal, if any down town/healing time and because it is fast to perform the BBL™ provider is able to treat a large area such as from the shoulder down to the hand with multiple passes. Faster, multiple passes means a more comfortable procedure that is able to provide greater results. With regular BBL™ treatments one can reduce and delay the long term signs of skin aging in a way that looks very natural. Who said you need to age gracefully, when you can choose to instead be “forever young”!
