BroadBand Light (BBL) facial rejuvenation reduces skin damage, shaving years off your appearance. The advanced lasers send light energy through your pigment-containing cells to destroy unwanted pigmentation.

Forever Young BBL has been designed to treat a variety of skin conditions and help fight against the hands of time. Best of all, you can treat every area of the body with BBL.

What happens during treatment?

During your treatment, the Forever Young BBL uses visible spectrum light to improve your complexion. While the treatment improves the appearance of the top layers of your skin, BBL also works below into the dermis to revitalize skin cells. After several treatments, you can expect to see significant age-defying results along with a more even and clearer complexion.

Forever Young BBL is the ideal solution for the following skin concerns:

  • Fine lines
  • Sunspots
  • Acne
  • Age spots
  • Rosacea
  • Skin tone, elasticity, and firmness

After a recommended amount of treatments, you’ll enjoy younger-looking skin with better tone, texture, and overall firmness.

Fighting the signs of aging with forever young bbl.

Wrinkles, redness, and pigmented blotches – all of which make you appear older – can be improved with BBL treatment.

The machine has been designed to use several filters that target different skin concerns. By using a combination of filters, we can tailor your treatment to suit your skin problems.

The process will restore your skin to its natural, beautiful complexion, making it vibrant and smoother.

  1. BBL helps acne

Often, oral medication is the go-to solution for significant acne. But if you have milder acne or have been left with acne scars that make you look older than you are, BBL can help to settle down active pustules. It does this by calming down inflammation and treating the redness that comes with scarring.

  • BBL helps scarring

Scars can leave skin looking dry and full of fine lines or wrinkles too early on. With BBL, we can settle the redness of scars (including post-surgical scars). With a number of treatments, even pitted scarring can be improved. That’s because BBL encourages new collagen formation, leaving your complexion clearer, smoother, and looking as young as you feel.

  • BBL goes below the surface.

Not only does BBL repair imperfections that cause early signs of aging on the top layers of your skin, but it also targets those same issues where they usually begin – below your skin’s surface.

Thanks to the cutting-edge technology, BBL’s heat and light energy can penetrate deeper layers of the skin to destroy pigment in cells and help to fade discolorations. In turn, collagen growth is stimulated for a plumper, firmer complexion that decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

After your forever young bbl treatment

After a BBL session, you may experience a little redness and even a sensation somewhat like a mild sunburn, but both usually settle down within a couple of hours.

Freckles, brown stops, and pigmented lesions will get darker during the first 24 hours and then flake off over the following few days, while broken capillaries just disappear.

Your skin will feel a great deal smoother and pores will be much less noticeable.

The new collagen starts forming around a week after treatment and will continue to improve for weeks afterward. Remember to follow our advice and use the recommended products for maximum antiaging results.

Thanks to BBL, you can fight the signs of aging and dramatically improve your complexion to look and feel more youthful.

We all want to stay young. For many of us, the quest for longevity is our number one goal. Aging begins at birth and there’s no magic elixir that can stop this natural process.

On the outside, youthfulness measured by your skin’s appearance. We often judge age by a person’s face; sunspots, wrinkles, sagging, and even the lack of plumpness and a rosy complexion age your appearance.

What we can see is just a reflection of what’s going on beneath the skin’s surface. Essentially, the true aging of your skin takes place invisibly.

Understanding skin’s aging requires an understanding of both the visual changes to your complexion and what’s going on at a cellular level.

Aging at a cellular level

As you age, your skin continues to take the abuse of day to day living, like pollution, stress, and UV damage; your cell turnover rate slows down. As a result, new cells take longer to form and reach your skin’s surface. The old cells build up and remain on the surface for longer and that’s often when you start to notice signs of aging, like age spots, wrinkles, fine lines, and an uneven skin tone.

Part of a solution is the Obagi Nu-Derm Advanced Skin Care System that has been specially designed to restore health to damaged skin, while evening out pigmentation problems.

Sun damage is one of the major contributors to the signs of aging, like early wrinkling and uneven pigmentation. Hormonal changes as you age, pregnancy, and contraceptive also result in brown spots and Obagi Nu-Derm can help improve these problems, too.

The Obagi Nu-Derm System

Obagi’s Nu-Derm System uses a combination of prescription and active ingredients, like Hydroquinone 4% and Tretinoin. This combination maximizes penetration to every layer of your skin. The actual dosage and frequency are determined and then monitored according to your lifestyle, needs, and of course, the condition of your skin.

The system triggers a process to increase the cellular turnover of healthy and abundant keratinocytes. This helps push fresh cells to your skin’s surface faster while promoting the exfoliation of old cells.

What’s more, the Nu-Derm System promotes even distribution or melanin, which helps to eliminate age spots and dark patches, while also suppressing the production of melanocyte and preventing hyperpigmentation.

If that’s not enough, the system improves intracellular transcription of keratinocytes to produce uniform, healthy cells, and an improved skin structure. The combination of ingredients works to stimulate fibroblasts, increasing elastin and collagen formation which leads to stronger skin, locking in hydration and improving blood flow.

In short, Nu-Derm from Obagi works to improve the function of your skin at a cellular level.

The benefits of Obagi’s Nu-Derm System

The Nu-Derm system offers a long list of benefits, but at its core, it improves the signs of aging and photodamage, including:

  • Rough skin
  • Age spots
  • Loss of elasticity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Discoloration
  • Redness

Are You A Good Candidate for the Nu-Derm System?

This system is best for candidates who are prepared to commit to a comprehensive skin care regimen. If you experience adult acne, want to eliminate age spots and sun damage, have hyperpigmentation and are concerned about mild to severe photo damage, you’re a good candidate for the Nu-Derm System from Obagi. Candidates with laxity, fine lines and wrinkles also do well with this treatment.

Now you can defy the signs of aging

Skin aging is a natural process. Yet daily exposure to the sun and pollutants contribute to premature aging, causing a slow down in skin cell turnover between old damaged cells and new cells. The Obagi Nu-Derm system has been designed as an anti-aging therapy that penetrates deep below your skin’s surface to transform cellular functions and correct the damage. As a result, you can look forward to younger and healthier looking skin.

Obagi’s Nu-Derm System gives you the opportunity to transform your skin from the inside out and is proven to improve skin functions, leaving you feeling and looking healthier.

  1. Goodbye to wet marks

Thanks to miraDry’s fast acting and permanent results, you can look forward to a wardrobe for full of favorites that will last a long time.

  • No more deodorant stains

Speaking of wet marks, you’ll no longer have to worry about your favorite t-shirt or black dress sporting chalky white marks as you’ll no longer need to layer on the deodorant.

  • Don’t sweat the small stuff

Whether it’s a first date or a big presentation, with no sweat stains, it won’t be as obvious that you’re uncomfortable, nervous or anxious.

  • Clean and fresh all day long

Being sweaty at work all day is uncomfortable and embarrassing. It feels like you’re constantly adjusting to get comfortable. Continuous sweat is also unhealthy and can result in itchy rashes. With miraDry, your underarms will stay clean and fresh.

  • The fun of being carefree

Without having to worry about excessive underarm sweat, you’re free to head off with your colleagues for an after work get-together without looking, or smelling like it’s been a tough, long day.

What you need to know about miraDry

A miraDry procedure can take between 1 and 2 hours. While you’ll enjoy results from your very first session, you may need two treatments spread-out about 3 or 4 months apart for optimal success. But after that, the results are permanent, and you won’t need any touch-up sessions in the future.

miraDry is a fairly painless procedure, too. Some patients do report mild discomfort, but this is alleviated with a local anesthesia in your underarm area.

Immediately after your procedure, you may need ice and over-the-counter pain relievers. You can expect a small amount of localized swelling and pain, but it will subside within a couple of weeks. The good news is that you can return to your exercise routine within just a few short days.

A safe and fast procedure

You should notice a reduction in underarm sweat immediately after your first treatment session. Studies show that sweat is reduced by over 80%. Most patients enjoy permanent results after just 2 sessions, but it can vary depending on the severity of your hyperhidrosis.

miraDry is a safe and non-invasive procedure. While it eliminates your underarm sweat glands, your body is still able to regulate its temperature. After all, you have over four million sweat glands and only 2 percent of those are found under the arms.

Is miraDry the procedure for you?

miraDry is ideal for people who suffer from excessive underarm sweating that causes embarrassing stains. If this sounds like you, it’s time to book your miraDry session!

We all try our best to strike a balance as we age. But with age, the skin becomes thinner and less elastic. Skin tags, age spots, and wrinkles become more noticeable.

Even if you do everything right, your hands can give away your age.

It’s your hands that do the talking when it comes to giving away your real age. The hands take use and abuse compared to your face. From dryness to discoloration, your hands tell a vivid story.

Here’s what your hands might just be telling other people and what you can do about it.

Too much time in the sun

Sun exposure plays a big role in the aging process. Cumulative exposure over the years can result in thinner skin, wrinkles, irregular pigmentation, and brown spots.

Regular sunscreen can protect your hands from sunburn and skin cancer; It helps in protecting your hands from the harsh aging effects of the sun.

It’s easy to forget about the hands when you’re protecting other parts of your body, which leaves them exposed daily to the sun. UV radiation results in a lot of skin changes associated with aging. The key is to not forget about your hands when you’re applying sunscreen. Don’t forget to reply when you wash your hands.

Hands-on hobbies

If you’re a big fan of hobbies that cause calluses, we have solutions for you.

Calluses are hardened bits of skin that appear from repeated friction and pressure. While they’re not usually sore, calluses can be a sign that you’re putting too much pressure on your bare hands and you need to protect your skin better.

While calluses aren’t really a cause for concern, you should treat them as soon as they pop up, or rather work to prevent them completely. The easiest way to do this is to wear gloves and the right protective padding when using anything that necessitates a forceful grip.

If you already have calluses, the best way to treat them is to soak your hands in warm water. Then, use a pumice stone to gently rub away the dead skin.

If you leave calluses to grow, there’s a chance your skin will become so dry and thick that it will tear. Split calluses are extremely painful.

Instead, seek regular beauty treatments so that your hands tell the world you’re young and fresh instead of a hardcore hobbyist!

Your hands can tell the world volumes. With regular care, you can make sure they tell everyone you’re younger than you are!
