Do you have diffuse discoloration on your skin from aging or sun damage? Then this is for you. Forever Young IPL Photofacial treatments can help smoothen out the color of your skin. Forever Young BBL IPL photofacial treatments with the Sciton Broad Band Light (BBL) help remove discolorations, freckles, sun spots, redness, and broken capillaries. Any area on the body can be treated. The most popular areas are face, upper chest, arms, and backs of the hands. At A E Skin we use a painless technique, which combines numbing cream with cold air for a comfortable, yet effective treatment with virtually no down time. Dr. Alex has performed thousands of Forever Young BBL IPL photofacial treatments! Some of the results are shown below.

What is Forever Young BBL IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial?
Forever Young BBL IPL Photofacial is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles, and sun damage. Forever Young IPL Photofacial energy allows precise treatment of age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results.
How does Forever Young BBL IPL Photofacial work?
The light energy delivered by the Forever Young BBL IPL Photofacial will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the light-based energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.
What conditions can be treated with Forever Young BBL IPL Photofacial?
- Dark Discolorations (e.g., freckles, age spots)
- Broken capillaries and generalized redness
- Skin Firmness
- Uneven Skin Texture
- Unwanted Hair
How long will it take to recover?
This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work and resume most of your activities immediately.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient. A series of three to six treatments at four to eight week intervals is recommended, but more procedures may be done based on the level of improvement you desire. You may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
What will happen during the procedure?
Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a warm or “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. The procedure takes a few minutes.
Will it be uncomfortable?
The procedure is gentle, noninvasive, and safe. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic. However at A E Skin we use a topical numbing cream for about 15 minutes prior to the procedure because patient comfort is a priority. Unlike other offices, at A E Skin there is no extra charge for numbing cream and you do not need to arrive early to have the numbing cream applied.
What areas can be treated with Forever Young BBL IPL Photofacial?
Any area of your body can be treated with the Forever Young BBL IPL Photofacial. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.
What should I expect after a Forever Young BBL IPL Photofacial treatment?
After a Forever Young BBL IPL Photofacial treatment, you may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours, but may last up to 48 hours. For some dark spots, you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine lines and pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated.
What aftercare do I need?
It is important to carefully follow the aftercare instructions. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your skin or use a sunscreen with SPF at least 30 with broad spectrum coverage every day. Avoid heat, alcohol, and exercise for at least 24 hours after the procedure, because this can draw blood to the skin and lead to unwanted side effects such as blisters and discoloration.
A photorejuvenation informed consent form and laser treatment questionnaire must be signed by every patient receiving a laser photorejuvenation treatment.
