The Forever Young BBL™ Photo-Facial treats sun damage, broken capillaries and helps to diffuse redness in the skin. It stimulates collagen production leaving you with plump, youthful, rejuvenated, and healthier skin.
Clinical research from Stanford University has revealed that having a Forever Young BBL™ Photo-Facial 2+ times annually reverses the signs of aging, and causes skin cells to behave younger. The light energy delivered by the BBL™ will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to generate collagen, which promotes skin firmness. Photo-thermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin (brown spots) and pigmentation.
Reverse the signs of aging
Designed specifically to treat hyperpigmentation (sun damage & brown spots)
A study from Stanford University now validates that Forever Young BBL produces change at the molecular level by enhancing the expression of longevity-related genes in aged skin cells. What does that mean? Essentially, the aging process is reversed and returns skin to a genetically more youthful state!
What our clients are saying...
"This treatment completely changed my skin, it doesn't even feel like mine - in a good way! My chest looks 10 years younger! Highly recommend!"
Introduction to The Forever Young BBL™ Photo-Facial
Every once in a while a treatment is introduced that takes us one step closer to the fountain of youth. The Forever Young BBL Photo-Facial is a big step in that direction and is one of the most advanced techniques available today to slow down, treat and reverse damaged and aged facial and non-facial skin. This is the most effective and advanced form of photo-facial and photo-rejuvenation currently available due to the broadband light technology.
The Forever Young BBL encompasses all of the advantages of the original BBL Photo-Facial procedure along with the newly recognized benefit of delaying skin aging. The treatment targets hyperpigmentation, sun damage, broken capillaries and diffused redness in the skin all while stimulating collagen. Forever Young BBL clients have seen great results on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and other body parts.
The Forever Young BBL™ Photo-Facial is effective in treating
Rosacea and Redness
Pigmented Freckles and Age spots
How does it work?
The Forever Young BBL Photo-Facial is quick and safe, performed in 60 minutes or less.
It utilizes various wavelengths of light that target and denature damaged cells in the skin, stimulating our body’s natural healing process. When this occurs, pigmented damage such as sunspots and freckles get pushed to the surface of the skin and naturally flake off. The light also treats unsightly broken capillaries and diffused redness in the skin. The end result is a more even and bright skin tone.
Another benefit of the Forever Young BBL Photo-Facial is the stimulation of collagen production that leads to thickening of the skin, leaving you with youthful, rejuvenated, healthy skin.
Exciting Research and Evidence
Exciting new clinical research from Stanford University has revealed that having a Forever Young BBL Photo-Facial 2+ times a year actually reverses the signs of aging and causes skin cells to behave younger. Younger skin cells produce more collagen and elastin than aged skin cells.
Compelling evidence supports regular long- term BBL treatments that will enhance the expression of longevity-related genes in aged skin cells; essentially reversing the ageing process and returning skin to a genetically youthful state.

Understanding the Effects of Sun Damage on a Deeper Level
Sun damage is more than skin deep. An unnerving fact is that UVA and UVB exposure not only depletes our collagen, but it actually alters the DNA of our skin cells. This breakdown results in uneven pigmentation, changes in skin texture, loss of elasticity and, increasingly more common, cancer.
The effects of UV exposure are cumulative, becoming more visible as we age. The more exposure we have the greater our risk becomes for developing skin cancer and prematurely aged skin. A Groundbreaking Study on Forever Young BBL from Stanford University has made an incredible discovery. This study has demonstrated that Forever Young BBL treatments can restore the gene expression pattern of aged human skin to more resemble young skin and, more importantly, healthy skin. Over 1,000 gene expressions became “rejuvenated” to be more like youthful skin resulting in decreased elastosis and more uniform collagen deposition; leading to improvements in fine wrinkles and pigmentation.
How should I prepare for my Forever Young BBL™ Photo-Facial?
It is important to discontinue the use of prescription vitamin A products and acids one week prior to your treatment and one week post treatment. Even though the downtime is minimal we recommend you do not have an important event within 7 days of your BBL Forever Young Treatment. We recommend having a HydraFacial treatment 7-10 days after your photo-facial to polish away the targeted pigmentation and enhance the overall results and appearance of your skin.
Is there downtime after my Forever Young BBL™ Photo-Facial?
The downtime with Forever Young BBL Photo-Facials is very minimal and makeup can be worn post treatments.
When treating hyper-pigmentation the targeted pigment will darken in color and begin to look like coffee granules on the skin. This will naturally exfoliate off over 7+ days. You can apply makeup post treatment. There is a chance of swelling when stronger treatments are performed on the cheek and eye area. The swelling can last a couple of days if it does occur.
How many treatments will I need to see results?
This depends on your skin needs and goals. Your practitioner will determine this at your complimentary consultation. The average is 3-4 treatments. The first Forever Young BBL Treatment always provides the most visible results.
What results can I expect when having a series of Forever Young BBL™ Treatments for pigmentation?
The first Forever Young BBL Treatment always provides the most visible results. This is because the pigmentation that is most prominent and superficial is targeted and will flake off. Pigmentation that sits deeper in the skin may have minimal to no response to follow up treatments unless it is superficial enough to be targeted but you will not receive the same dramatic flaking and downtime as the first session.
It is very important to understand that when undergoing a series of Forever Young BBL Photo-Facials that the results go far beyond those visible to the eye. Exciting clinical research from Stanford University has revealed that having a Forever Young BBL Photo-Facial 3+ times a year actually reverses the signs of aging and causes skin cells to behave younger. Younger skin cells produce more collagen and elastin than aged skin cells. Compelling evidence supports regular long- term BBL treatments will enhance the expression of longevity- related genes in aged skin cells; essentially reversing the aging process and returning skin to a genetically youthful state.
If I have no pigment or redness in my skin are The Forever Young BBL™ Photo-Facials worth my money?
YES! We encourage clients looking for the most powerful anti-aging treatment to have a series once a year for the deep, genetic expression benefits (enhance the expression of longevity- related genes in aged skin cells). Aging is happening/beginning beneath the skin, it is a very limited perspective to view aging as that which is visible to the eye. The Forever Young BBL light energy is penetrating beyond the epidermis deep within the skin to slow down, and prevent aging from occurring and preventing the visible signs from occurring, this is true anti-aging. It literally slows down aging of the skin by treating it where it begins.
