BBL Treatments Reduce Signs of Aging Skin

|

A new study by two physicians in California confirms what we've seen in our own patients - broad band light (BBL) treatments really can reduce and even delay the signs of aging skin.

Here at The Skin Institute, we use Forever Young BBL™ from Sciton. This treatment sends light energy deep into the skin to boost your body's natural ability to fight aging. BBL treatments can be done on any area of the body, but the most common areas are the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.

BBL treatments can be repeated as often as every month, though you and your doctor will decide what's best for you. In the California study, doctors found that people who received regular treatments during a 5-11 year period saw a reduction in aging signs.

According to this article on The Aesthetic Channel, "In post-treatment photos of patients' skin five to 11 years after their initial BBL treatment, the authors found that while patients aged an average of nine years during the study, skin aging in the treatment area was evaluated as not aging."

Unexpected Side Benefits of Plastic Surgery

|

Typically, you may not associate plastic surgery with something like smoking cessation. But a recent study confirmed something we've experienced with our own patients - sometimes having plastic surgery is an incentive for patients to finally make healthier choices, like stopping smoking.

exercisingwomen copy.jpgThe website Physician's Briefing released details about a small study involving 85 patients who were active smokers before having cosmetic surgery. During their pre-surgery consultations they were advised to stop smoking in the 2 weeks prior to surgery. They did, and after a long-term follow up, 40% of the patients were no longer smokers.

For some people, finally getting a cosmetic procedure they've been wanting is enough incentive to make improvements in other areas of their health. Some, like those in this study, will choose to quit smoking. We've had other patients so pleased with their new body shape, they finally feel like exercising and eating healthier. If your surgery makes it easier for you to move around, you might find yourself playing with the kids or the grandkids more.

The aesthetic improvements from plastic surgery are easy to predict, but we're pleased to see how many other ways our patients' lives improve after cosmetic surgery.

We offer complimentary consultations for cosmetic surgery, so contact us today if you'd like to make an appointment with one of our seven surgeons.
