Sammy: Yes Felicia! There are these AWESOME treatments called BBL and Forever Young BBL that are great for browns. We can treat all over the face and body. Not only will it help with those brown spots, but it reduces redness and broken capillaries, minimizes pores, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. As a bonus, it will cause your body to actually create more of its own collagen.
Felicia: Oh, that would be just wonderful! How long does the treatment take and will I be really beat up afterwards?
Sammy: It takes about a half an hour for treatment on the face, and you can put makeup on right away. For the vast majority of our clients, there is no downtime. You will be a little red immediately after and the brown spots will get a little darker after the treatment, we call this peppering. As you wash your face over the next week those spots will just fall off. It may take a few treatments to see the maximum results, but we will make sure we track the progression with photos.
Felicia: Does it hurt?
Sammy: It feels like little rubber band snaps, but most our clients tolerate it very well.
Felicia: It sounds just like what I need! When can I schedule?
Sammy: You can schedule whenever works for you, but you cannot have any sun tan or have been using any self-tanners. You also need to be cautious of sun exposure after the treatment because you will be a little sensitive to the sun and other procedures.
Felicia: How long do the results last?
Sammy: The results depend on how well you protect your skin after the treatments. You’ll see your best results 2-4 months after the treatment. We can then create a great maintenance schedule for you so your skin keeps looking young forever!
Felicia: What kind of long-term benefits will I see?
Sammy: It pretty amazing, If you keep up with these treatments it actually can cause genes to express themselves younger.
Sammy: In a 10 year study at Stanford University and published by the Wall Street Journal, the FYBBL was shown to literally cause genes to express themselves younger. We all want to slow down the aging process but now we can actually reverse it. Utilizing genetic mapping, the study showed the gene expression of the skin to literally reverse. In fact, an independent panel of 400 people were asked to guess the ages of 15 test subjects who had gone through the FYBBL study. The panel guessed the subjects to be 11 years younger than they actually were! This is the first study to actually prove age reversal. We recommend doing anywhere from 2-4 treatments a year to keep your skin looking BEAUTIFUL!
