BBL Photofacial: A New Approach to Younger Looking Skin

Forever Young BBL is not just a beauty treatment, it is a preventative regimen – possibly the best investment anyone can make in their skin. Whether addressing visible signs of sun and environmental damage or beginning a preventative regimen, BBL can provide patients with both immediate and long-lasting results. Immediately, patients will see results for pigmented and vascular lesions, fine lines, and overall tone and texture. With a regimen, patients will see results forever. Clinically proven in a ten-year study, at the end of the study patients looked younger than when they started. Most patients received multiple BBL treatments per year for an average of ten years. At the end of the study, doctors judged the patients to appear 11 years younger than their actual age. This treatment is not just for women and men who have experienced sun damage over the course of their life, it also has great prejuvenation benefits to keep young skin looking young!  

BBL Frequently Asked Questions

Any area of your body can be treated. Most people ask for treatments on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders (areas most exposed to the sun).

The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient, and our Senior Laser Nurse will personalize a plan based on the level of improvement you desire.

Your eyes will be protected with safety glasses. Typically, there is no need for a topical numbing cream, however, our Senior Laser Nurse may choose to use some on the more sensitive areas. You may feel a quick, warm sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas.

A single BBL treatment is usually around $400, and package pricing is available for a series of treatments.

Your photofacial procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated. This is a non-invasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to apply makeup, return to work and resume most of your activities immediately.

You may experience some redness and a mild sunburn feeling that should resolve within a few hours. Over the next couple weeks, your treated skin will feel smoother, pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. It is important to follow our Senior Laser Nurse’s post treatment plan, which will be provided after the treatment.

MiXto SX Micro Fractional CO2 Therapy for Vibrant Skin

The MiXto SX Micro Fractional CO2 Laser is a treatment that makes it possible to have healthy, younger looking skin with minimal post-treatment downtime. A single treatment can drastically improve skin texture and color while softening wrinkles. Fractional skin treatment can give you excellent results that last a year or more, depending on how well you take care of your skin after your treatment. For most patients, within two to three weeks of the first treatment, the skin will look and feel smoother, with improved tone and texture. Freckles and age spots may initially appear to darken, before fading away gradually.

Fractional CO2: How Does it Work?

The laser facial skin therapy is an innovative, advanced way to promote vibrant, healthy looking skin year-round for both men and women. It gives patients a youthful appearance by treating conditions typically associated with signs of premature aging, such as sun damage, excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, and fine lines.

When the C02 beam of light meets the epidermis, it heats and vaporizes the skin tissue, instantly removing the superficial layers of the skin.  The skin remodeling occurs with new skin and collagen growth.  The result is a softer, less noticeable appearance of scars and wrinkles.

Combining Fractional CO2 with Additional Skin Treatments

PRP (platelet rich plasma) is the body’s repair and renewal system.  Concentrated platelet serum is obtained through a quick blood draw that is then centrifuged to remove the red blood cells.  It is then injected into the skin and applied topically for fantastic skin rejuvenation!

Patient Questions about Fractional Laser Treatment

A Fractional CO2 treatment takes around 30 minutes for a single treatment.

To maximize comfort, we apply a topical anesthetic and provide oral Tylenol.  We also have nitrous or laughing gas available.  Patients can drive themselves home, and the discomfort is similar to a severe sunburn.

Most patients are ready to go back to work the next day, but it depends on the patient and their lifestyle. Typical downtime is four to five days due to skin redness and irritation.

Fractional Co2 treatments increase the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight, making it more prone to sunburn and sun damage. Thus, it is best to avoid sun exposure for a few weeks following treatment. It is best to wait four to five days before applying makeup to the skin.

The results from laser treatment are highly effective and long-lasting, especially with a customized skin care regimen and sun protection.  In most cases, only one treatment is recommended, but for deeper wrinkles and acne scars two or more procedures may be required.

A single treatment of fractional CO2 treatment costs $3,500.
