A breakthrough study by dermatologist Dr Anne Chang from Stanford University published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (November 2012) shows that Sciton BroadBand Light (BBL) treatments can restore the gene expression of aged human skin to more closely resemble young skin. The study supports the hypothesis that regulators of ageing can be altered in human skin using BBL technology to promote a functional change, rather than just a cosmetic mimic of youthful appearance. BBL treatments promote the appearance of a more youthful and rejuvenated skin at a molecular level, besides the clinically visible decrease in redness, pigmentation, pores and fine wrinkles.
An additional study by renowned dermatologist Dr Patrick Bitter Jr. from California published in Cosmetic Dermatology (February 2013) journal takes this ground breaking research further and explores the practical application and patient results of BBL treatments. The results showed that participants who underwent regular treatment with BBL over a period of up to 11 years looked noticeably younger than their actual age. Although their treated skin actually aged a median of 9 years, participants appeared to have aged a median of minus 2 years. A series of initial treatments followed by regular maintenance treatments once or twice a year can reduce and delay the long-term signs of skin ageing such as sun damage, capillaries, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin laxity in a natural-looking way.
4 things learnt from patient observations of BBL:
1. The more treatments with BBL, the better looking the skin appears
2. Patients, no matter what age, experience the anti-ageing benefits of BBL
3. Treated skin anywhere on the body (eg. face, neck, chest and hands) shows the same anti-ageing benefits
4. No risks have been observed to having numerous FotoFacial treatments with BBL
4 benefits of Forever Young BBL technology:
