Forever Clear BBL™ is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine. BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device delivering light energy deep into your skin to help treat acne, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.
Broad Band Light (BBL™) has now proven to be helpful in the treatment of acne. In many cases, this offers an alternative to oral medications such as Accutane or long-term antibiotics. The shorter wavelengths of BBL™, in the blue-light spectrum, attack p-acne bacteria on the surface and in the sebaceous gland. Along with a home skincare program designed for acne-prone skin, you can experience significant long-term clearance.
Between 50-90% of people will suffer from an acne related diagnosis at one point in their life. Hundreds of thousands of people have dealt with this disorder, which causes pimples, redness, white heads and scarring. The disorder itself is caused by hormones and other triggers affecting the skin’s oil glands, sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Many people have acne and acne scars which they wish could be eliminated. Fortunately, regaining smoothness and eliminating acne scars can be easily accomplished at Forever Young Laser Skin Rejuvenation, with Scion BBL treatment.
Sciton BBL Blue Light Acne Treatment consists of advanced, dual broadband light technology, which administers violet light deep under the skin to activate a porphyrin. This will kill acne-causing bacteria and smooth the skin. While being able to reach the deep layers of your skin without surface damage, this treatment can improve skin texture and lessen the appearance of scars, which is extremely useful for those who have both ongoing acne and existing scars.
Those who suffer from mild to moderate acne are most likely to benefit from Sciton BBL Blue Light Acne Treatment, as they are most likely to have the p. acnes bacterium which the Blue Light system destroys. You may also notice that the oiliness of your skin will likely be reduced, pore sizes will get smaller, and within a just few weeks, noticeable reduction or even elimination of acne will occur. Since the p. acnes bacterium multiplies rapidly, regular, consistent treatments will work best. An average patient will receive approximately eight sessions over a four week period, each session lasting about 15 minutes. Patients see an average of over 55% improvement in their skin’s texture during this time.
Side effects are minimal, and may include some minor swelling, surface dryness, and temporary pigment changes, due to the deep sub-dermal effects.
If you are suffering from acne, we at Forever Young Laser Skin Rejuvenation can help. Why should you suffer when effective treatments are available?
At Forever Young Laser Skin Rejuvenation, we may suggest combining other treatments for best results. We would recommend a weekly routine of blue light BBL treatments combined with any of these additional services: Chemical Peels, Medical Facials, and/or Medical Grade Skin Care Products such as Image Skin Care and SkinCeuticals (Cosmeceuticals), and/or the SilkPeel Dermalinfusion can help augment the treatment by exfoliating the dead, outer sloughed skin which blocks the pores. The P. Acnes often resides in these blocked pores, so unclogging the pores can be extremely beneficial.
What causes acne?
Acne occurs when hair follicle pores are blocked by natural components of the skin. This is the root of most acne lesions. Once blocked, inflammation and bacteria overgrowth occur leading to red bumps and cysts in the skin. Sebaceous or sweat glands of the skin can contribute excessive amounts of sebum into the plugged follicle increasing inflammation. Hormones can also play a role. Most teenagers are affected to some degree. Adults, often, get acne for the first time while others have suffered since the teenage years. Acne is not life-threatening, but it can cause physical disfigurement (scarring) and emotional distress if not treated early.
Treatment for acne varies depending on which of the above factors is causing your acne. This is different for each person. On average, results are visible in two to eight weeks with topical cosmeceuticals such as our Image skin care and Skinceuticals medical grade skin care lines.
What options do I have besides oral medications? Broad Based Light (BBL™) has now proven to be helpful in the treatment of acne. Microdermabrasion, silkpeel dermalinfusion, medical Facials and chemical peels also offer alternative ways to remove persistent and stubborn acne.
How does the BBL™ treatment work? Sciton BBL™ is a FDA approved treatment that utilizes a blue filter to selectively target the p-acnes bacteria that are partially responsible for acne in the skin.
What is the treatment like? A thin film of gel is applied to your skin, followed by the BBL treatment. Most patients have minimal discomfort. Treatment sessions last 20-30 minutes.
What should I expect after treatment? After treatment is completed, some may experience temporary reddening and minimal swelling of the acne, and surrounding skin for 1-2 days. This is transient and usually associated with minimal to no downtime. Makeup can be applied immediately, if desired.
How many treatments will I need? To achieve maximum improvement with BBL™, a series of 8 weekly treatments is most effective. Most patients will need periodic touch up treatments ranging from monthly to every 6 months, depending on your acne type and severity. Sciton BBL Acne treatments, combined with a professional home skincare program will give you significant long-term clearance and confidence from acne break-outs. For further improvement to old acne scars, we also offer Sciton resurfacing. The Halo hybrid laser that drills tiny holes into the skin. These holes will rebuild with new, healthy columns of supportive tissue, lessening the appearance of the scars. We will be happy to show you before and after pictures at your consultation. You can also check out many different Sciton treatments at sciton.com under the treatments tab.
Don’t let unpredictable acne breaks-outs spoil that awesome photo-op, or cause distress in social engagements. Stop being the victim of acne and become the victor! Banish your acne and improve your life with professional skin care from the experts at Forever Young Laser Skin Rejuvenation.
Acne treatment varies in cost based on the extent of treatment and the number of sessions undergone to achieve maximum results. We may also recommend additional facial rejuvenation treatments which will alter the price.
During the consultation, the medical aesthetician will examine the patient’s skin and specific areas of concern. The purpose of the consultation is to determine whether or not the patient is a good candidate for the treatment, or they would be better suited for an alternative facial rejuvenation treatment. Once it is verified that the patient is an ideal candidate, the practitioner will then design a personalized treatment plan specific to meet the patient’s individual needs. Some patients only need one treatment session to accomplish their desired look, while others with more concerns may require multiple treatments. The exact amount of recommended treatments to obtain optimal results will be advised during the consultation. The provider will go over any preparatory treatment care plans as well as advise the patient on what to expect the day of treatment. Consultations can be arranged by calling 780-758-7727, online chat, email, or with our online booking system. If you decide to proceed, a $25 consultation fee is required which can be used towards your treatment.We look forward to hearing from you.
"No wonder Halo™ has become a #1 procedure. The combination of great results and unmatched patient comfort has generated tremendous word-of-mouth among doctors and patients."
"Compared to other IPL technologies BroadBand Light™ or BBL from Sciton has made skin rejuvenation much more comfortable for me, largely because the technology has been easier to use, it is faster, and treats a larger spot size."
"I love seeing the same patients time and again and with Forever Young BBL™, they look younger year after year. Patients who maintain a regular regimen of BBL can expect skin that looks better today than it did a decade ago"
