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."
We have more BBL Before-and-After photos on our website and more information about the Forever Young BBL™ from Sciton. If you'd like to schedule a consultation to see if BBL treatment may be right for you, contact us today!
