What if there were a treatment that could slow down the aging clock and keep you forever young? Scientific evidence demonstrates regular maintenance treatments using Forever Young BBL functionally rejuvenates skin and delays skin aging.

Its broad range of wavelengths allow targeted treatment for many skin conditions without the need for additional handpieces. Its flexible Finesse Adapters enable treatment of hard to reach areas, producing evenly treated skin.
With its user-friendly features, superior results, and exceptional ROI, BBL is the most complete and versatile broadband light system in its class.
First study to demonstrate BBL treatments can restore gene expression pattern of aged human skin to resemble young 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.
Led by dermatologist Dr. Anne Lynn S. Chang of the Stanford University School of Medicine, the study (“Rejuvenation of Gene Expression Pattern of Aged Human Skin by BroadBand Light Treatment”) reveals the molecular changes that are induced by BBL, a popular treatment made by Sciton for improving the appearance of acne, sun spots, freckles and vascular conditions. BBL treatments are requested by patients for promoting a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Previous studies have shown that animal models can exhibit gene expression changes to become more youthful. Dr. Chang’s study is the first to show a similar correlation in human skin treated with BBL.
“As an industry, to find a clinically sound solution for human anti-aging is critical,” said Dr. Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, board certified dermatologist, attending physician at Lenox Hill Hospital and Yale/New Haven VA Hospital, and Assistant Clinical Professor at Yale University School of Medicine. “As a practicing physician in the field of dermatology, it is exciting to know there is a safe, light based treatment with groundbreaking clinical evidence supporting anti-aging and the reversal of skin damage available to our patients.”
An additional study, submitted for publication by Dr. Patrick H. Bitter, Jr. of Advanced Aesthetic Dermatology, a well-known dermatologist and co-author of the JID study, takes this groundbreaking research further and explores the practical application and patient results of BBL treatments. Dr. Bitter’s study focuses on the ability to improve the appearance of aging skin with long-term and regular interval treatments with BBL.
The first long-term, visual and clinical evaluation of BBL treatments. Blinded panel of physician evaluators determined BBL treated patients appeared 9 years younger than their actual age.
BroadBand Light (BBL), which utilizes visible and infrared light (400–1400 nm) delivered for phototherapy, is a nonablative treatment designed to rejuvenate the skin on the face, chest, neck, forearms, legs, and hands. The objective of this retrospective study was to evaluate if participants who underwent regular treatment with BBL over a period of 5 to 11 years looked noticeably younger than their actual age. Fifteen participants aged 38 to 69 years (median, 46.0 years; interquartile range, 19.7 years) with Fitzpatrick skin types I to IV received at least 1 full-face treatment per year with a BBL device (BBL, Sciton, Inc) during the study period. Blinded evaluators (N=491) analyzed clinical photographs taken before the first treatment and after the last treatment to estimate pretreatment and posttreatment ages of participants over 5 to 11 years. Before treatment, the median estimated age of participants was slightly lower than the median actual age, but the difference was not significant. The median estimated age at the end of the study period, which varied from 5 to 11 years depending on the participant, was significantly lower than the corresponding median actual age (P=.0084). Although treated skin actually aged a median of 9 years, participants appeared to have aged a median of -2 years. Results from our study indicate that patients who maintain a regular annual or biannual regimen of BBL treatments over 5 to 11 years can reduce and delay the long-term signs of skin aging such as photodamage, telangiectases, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin laxity in a natural-looking way.
