Is BBL The Key to a More Beautiful Body?
- Posted on: Mar 28 2022
We talk a lot about the signs of facial aging and how they make us feel. This narrow focus, however, has led to many people with wrinkle-free faces but loose, sagging neck skin or highly discolored chests and arms. The fact of the matter is the entire body ages. No part is particularly more important than another. Here at Azul Cosmetic Surgery and Medical Spa, we perform numerous different services to help our patients address the host of cosmetic concerns that can arise due to age, sun damage, and other factors. Here, we want to shine the spotlight on sunspots and other indications of sun damage and how they can be mitigated with broadband light treatment.
Forever Body™ is a comfortable, no-downtime procedure that eliminates the visible signs of aging such as sun spots, age spots, redness, and dull-looking skin. Utilizing the power of broadband light, the Forever Body treatment achieves great results that help the body look as young as the face. This treatment is a part of the BBL HERO platform, an innovative, powerful device designed to deliver intense pulsed light quickly and comfortably. Performing Forever Body, the provider can target multiple areas of concern in a brief treatment session. It is possible to accomplish a full body treatment in one session, or a small area, such as the chest, in less than thirty minutes. The delivery of intense pulsed light is controlled enough that patients experience mild sensations but no pain. The treatment is well-tolerated without the need for anesthetic cream, and patients need not take time off work to recover.
How it Works
The Forever Body BBL treatment accomplishes three goals in each session. These include:
- Address pigment problems
- Address redness and vascular problems like visible veins
- Heats the deep layer of tissue in the dermis to stimulate collagen remodeling for all-over revitalization
During the Forever Body treatment, the device flashes a specialized light directed toward the skin. As this happens, the provider moves the applicator across the treatment area, delivering energy in a uniform manner. Soon after the BBL treatment, the spots of pigmentation usually become darker. This is a visual indication that the treatment worked and that skin cells are repairing and regenerating. Over the few days after a BBL treatment, the body engages in a healing process that involves sloughing off the pigmented cells and replacing them with healthy new cells.
The results of Forever Body BBL treatment build over time. Most patients can see some degree of improvement starting two to four weeks after their appointment. As the skin is being remodeled with healthy skin cells, it is important to avoid unnecessary sun exposure (and all sun exposure is unnecessary). Patients should wear SPF 30 or higher broad-spectrum sunscreen as well as physical barriers like high-necked shirts, hats, or long sleeves. Whatever part of the body has been treated should be protected from the sun. This not only supports optimal tissue recovery but also decreases the amount of ongoing damage that can occur after treatment.
