Skin issues like acne, redness, and hyperpigmentation start below the skin’s surface, which is why topical products alone are often ineffective. Reaching the source of the problem requires an advanced treatment like the Sciton Forever Young BBL (broadband light). Longevity’s certified laser specialists and Registered Nurses use BBL to minimize sun damage, brown spots, age spots, discoloration and fine lines. In addition, the treatments work to stimulate collagen to produce a more youthful look.

WHO SHOULD RECEIVE BBL TREATMENTS?
BBL is a highly versatile treatment that can correct many of the same conditions treated by lasers. BBL treatment may be an appropriate solution for the following:
- Acne or acne scars
- Age spots
- Uneven skin pigmentation
- Unwanted spider veins or moles
- Broken capillaries or redness
And much more!
HOW DOES BBL WORK?
BBL uses low-frequency photothermal energy to safely and gently heat deep layers of skin. Damaged cells absorb this energy and are stimulated to generate new collagen – an important building block of healthy-looking skin. BBL uses a broad range of energy wavelengths to allow for more complete improvements and evenly-treated skin. A thermoelectric monitoring system adjusts the temperature of your procedure, eliminating the need for pain medication and ensuring that you remain comfortable during treatment.
The machine is equipped with advanced cooling features, allowing the use of high-powered energy with minimal discomfort. Numbing cream can be administered on individuals who find the treatment uncomfortable, but it’s typically unnecessary. BBL™ is a safe, effective approach to younger looking skin. It is recommended that individuals undergo treatment two to four times per year for optimal results.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
During your consultation, we will thoroughly assess your skin. Based on this information, your skin care specialist will develop a step-by-step plan to help you achieve the results you are looking for.
The treatment is very gentle and requires minimal downtime. No anesthesia is needed, but you will be provided with eyewear for protection during the procedure. Treatments are typically performed by one of our RNs or LPNs.
Your treatment provider will apply the BBL hand piece to your skin and deliver precise pulses of light energy to the treatment areas. This can produce a light stinging sensation that is usually well-tolerated by most people. The entire procedure should take under 1 hour.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Any area of your body can be treated. Due to being most often exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight, the most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.
You will be asked to wear sunscreen for several weeks after treatment in order to protect your skin as it heals. Immediately following treatment, you can expect to see mild redness, and it may feel like a slight sunburn in the treated area. This should dissipate after a few hours but in some cases could last a day or two. You can start to see healthier looking skin just several days after treatment. Sun spots, age spots and or broken blood vessels, should begin to clear up in one to two weeks. Within a few weeks, your skin will look brighter, clearer, and more youthful. Your skin can be further improved with subsequent BBL sessions, usually between 3 and 5, or other treatments like Chemical Peels, Microneedling and/or Botox & Fillers!
