How it works
BBL influences gene expression and changes the skin at a molecular level. It activates certain genes that are known to be associated with younger skin while turning off other genes tied to aging.
The light energy delivered by BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. This corrective process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, making it clear, smoother, vibrant and younger-looking.
Only Forever Young BBL is clinically proven to stop the skin from aging:
Unique light treatment works from the inside out

Forever Clear BBL™
Have you tried numerous methods to get acne under control? Now, prescription medication and over-the-counter remedies can be a thing of the past. Why deal with the wait and potential side-effects of those options when you can start seeing clearer skin in a few short treatments.
Forever Clear BBL™ is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortable and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine. BroadBand Light™ is the world's most powerful IPL device delivering light energy deep into your skin to help treat acne, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.
Skin is first treated with BLUE BBL light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria at its source, deep down in pores.
Skin is then treated with YELLOW BBL light to reduce the inflammation and acne-associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin.
For added benefit, the skin is then treated with INFRA-RED light in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body's natural healing process.

How does Forever Young BBL reprogram the age of my skin?
Forever Young BBL reaches deep into the cell and activates certain genes associated with youth, while turning off other genes tied to aging. As a result, you create more of the kinds of proteins and other building blocks you had when you were younger. New skin cells are actually programmed to be younger, giving you beautiful, youthful skin.
Can you prove Forever Young BBL really makes skin younger?
Yes! Ground-breaking research performed at Stanford University shows that BBL influences gene expression and changes skin at a molecular level. The study showed that literally hundreds of genes that are known to be associated with younger skin were activated while
others, associated with aging, were turned off.1
But that’s not all. A long-term clinical study showed that patients who received regular BBL treatments over the course of a decade were judged by doctors to appear 11 years younger than their actual age at the study’s end. In other words, they looked younger than when they started the study!
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient, and our professionals will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Our professionals may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to optimize your results.
Remember that regular treatments—at least once a year—have been proven to stop the aging process, allowing patients to look younger than they did when they started treatment 10 years prior.
What will happen during the procedure?
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. Usually, there is no need for a topical anesthetic; however, our professional may choose to use one when treating more sensitive areas. You may briefly feel a warm or quick snapping sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed.
How long will it take to recover?
BBL is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of your activities immediately.
What should I expect after the treatment?
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated area followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated.
