Why as we age do we develop brown and red spots? Well, while we often call those spots and areas of discoloration “age spots,” they are most often caused by the sun. These spots become more visible as you get older because all the sun damage you’ve acquired throughout your life comes to the surface. When your skin cells are damaged or unhealthy, they can produce too much melanin, which can then clump and cause hyperpigmentation in your skin.
So, what can you do? While you can’t go back in time to reverse sun damage, you can utilize a breakthrough photofacial technology to break up pigmentation without impacting your skin’s surface. We’re talking about BBL® (BroadBand Light), the most advanced and effective type of intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial treatment.
Here’s a look at how BBL photofacials can help you reverse years of sun damage and common skin concerns without a moment of downtime:
Forever Young BBL photofacials can restore a years-younger glow on your lunch break.
Remember all those spots you were looking to erase? Forever Young BBL can correct all those skin concerns plus more, including age spots, sunspots, liver spots, brown spots, freckles, small veins, rosacea, redness, broken capillaries, fine lines and wrinkles and dullness. Forever Young BBL works in two ways to rejuvenate the skin without breaking the surface. First, BBL’s high-energy light is absorbed by highly pigmented areas such as the blood in visible blood vessels or the melanin in sunspots and breaks the pigment down so that it is absorbed by the body. Then, its heat stimulates collagen production, which restores volume under the skin, softening fine lines and wrinkles and giving treated areas a youthful fullness. Forever Young BBL treatments usually take about 30 minutes to administer, and because they’re so gentle, there’s no downtime required. We do recommend that you wear sunscreen to protect your results and to prevent any further sun damage from occurring.
BBL HERO can treat large areas of the body within minutes.
Forever Young BBL and BBL HERO feature the same photofacial technology, BBL HERO is simply more powerful and efficient since it can deliver lasting results from head to toe (including the back, legs, neck and arms) within minutes. In fact, BBL HERO can deliver four times the speed, three times the peak power and two times the cooling as traditional IPL treatments. The CNY Beauty Team will carefully analyze your skin’s needs and your goals to determine which treatment is best suited for you.
You can keep your glow going strong with a series of treatments!
The best part about BBL photofacials is that they offer buildable benefits in the weeks and months following your treatments. By stimulating your skin’s natural healing response, BBL spurs new collagen and elastin growth, the building blocks for strong, supple skin. For optimal results, we recommend a series of four to six treatments spaced three weeks apart. Many patients find that after they’ve reached their goals, scheduling periodic maintenance treatments helps keep their newly refreshed and radiant skin going strong for the long term.
