What if there was a treatment that could slow down the aging clock and keep you "forever young?" BroadBand Light (BBL™) at the Charleston, SC, area's Germain Dermatology in Mt. Pleasant is an FDA-approved option for treating sun damage and signs of aging in the skin. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation, the natural breakdown of beneficial molecules over time, and harsh cleansers can all take a heavy toll on our skin. Forever Young BBL™ treatments help to not just rejuvenate the skin by improving both tone and texture, but to protect against future damage. The phototherapy device can be used on any part of the body, though the areas that are most commonly treated include the face, neck, back of the hands, chest, and shoulders—all of which are typically most often exposed to the sun and most in need of preventive care.
Forever Young BBL™ works by delivering light energy into the upper layers of the skin. Heat generated by this light damages the pigmented cells in unwanted lesions, as well as stimulates skin cells to produce new collagen. This process blends the natural colors of the skin and rejuvenates the surface for a smoother, vibrant, and younger look. Many patients report that they experience minimal to no discomfort during the treatment process, since the device is equipped with advanced cooling features. Results are most apparent in the weeks following a session, and multiple treatments may be necessary. A clinical study has shown that with regular treatments performed over years, patients can ultimately look even younger than they did when the series began.
