Every once in a while a treatment is introduced that takes us one step closer to the fountain of youth. The Forever Young BBL Photo-Facial is a big step in that direction and is one of the most advanced techniques available today to slow down, treat and reverse damaged and aged facial and non facial skin. This is the most effective and advanced form of IPL (also known as photo-facial and photo-rejevneation) currently available due to the broad band light technology.
The Forever Young BBL encompasses all of the advantages of the original BBL Photo-Facial procedure along with the newly recognized benefit of delaying skin aging. The treatment targets hyper-pigmentation, sun damage, broken capillaries and diffused redness in the skin all while stimulating collagen. Forever Young BBL clients have seen great results on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and other body parts.
How Does it Work?
The Forever Young BBL Photo-Facial is quick and safe, performed in 30 minutes or less. It utilizes various wavelengths of light which target and denature damaged cells in the skin, stimulating our body’s natural healing process. When this occurs, pigmented damage such as sun spots and freckles get pushed to the surface of the skin and naturally flake off. The light also treats unsightly broken capillaries and diffused redness in the skin. The end result is a more even and bright skin tone. Another benefit of the Forever Young BBL Photo-Facial is the stimulation of collagen production that leads to thickening of the skin, leaving you with youthful, rejuvenated, healthy skin.
Exciting Research and Evidence
Exciting new clinical research from Stanford University has revealed that having a Forever Young BBL Photo-Facial 2+ times a year actually reverses the signs of aging and causes skin cells to behave younger. Younger skin cells produce more collagen and elastin than aged skin cells.
Compelling evidence supports regular long- term BBL treatments will enhance the expression of longevity- related genes in aged skin cells; essentially reversing the aging process and returning skin to a genetically youthful state.

Understanding the effects of Sun Damage on a deeper level
Sun damage is more than skin deep. An unnerving fact is that UVA and UVB exposure not only depletes our collagen, but it actually alters the DNA of our skin cells. This breakdown results in uneven pigmentation, changes in skin texture, loss of elasticity and, increasingly more common, cancer.
The effects of UV exposure are cumulative, becoming more visible as we age. The more exposure we have the greater our risk becomes for developing skin cancer and prematurely aged skin. A Groundbreaking Study on Forever Young BBL from Stanford University has made an incredible discovery. This study has demonstrated that Forever Young BBL treatments can restore the gene expression pattern of aged human skin to more resemble young skin and, more importantly, healthy 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
+ How do I get started?
Book a complimentary skin consultation to determine if this treatment is right for your skin needs. This is a mandatory first step for all our clients.
+ How should I prepare for my Forever Young BBL Photo-Facial?
It is important to discontinue the use of prescription vitamin A products and acids one week prior to your treatment and one week post treatment.
Even though the downtime is minimal we recommend you do not have an important event within 7 days of your BBL Forever Young Treatment.
We recommend having a microdermabrasion treamtent 7-10 days after your photo-facial to polish away the targeted pigmentation and enhance the overall results and appearance of your skin.
+ Is there downtime after my Forever Young BBL Photo-Facial?
The downtime with Forever Young BBL Photo-Facials is very minimal and makeup can be worn post treatments.
When treating hyper-pigmentation the targeted pigment will darken in color and begin to look like coffee granules on the skin. This will naturally exfoliate off over 7+ days. You can apply makeup post treatment.
There is a chance of swelling when stronger treatments are performed on the cheek and eye area. The swelling can last a couple of days if it does occur.
+ How frequently can I have Forever Young BBL Photo-Facials?
These treatments are performed at 4 week intervals.
+ How many treatments will I need to see results?
This depends on your skin needs and goals. Your SKN practitioner will determine this at your complimentary consultation. The average is 2-4 treatments.

"Photo rejuvenation made my skin glow and got rid of broken capillaries. I also noticed that my pores got smaller. Overall great experience!"
"I booked a combo package for the Acupuncture, BBL, and Skin Tyte. I was extremely nervous for the acupuncture (being terrified of needles). Amanda, the owner, is such a warm and friendly person and made the entire experience comfortable. I even got a 20 minute nap! I felt refreshed afterwards.
Next, the BBL (for freckles and sun spots). I have tried IPL before with decent results at another clinic. After years of neglecting proper sunscreen and skin care, I am (finally) on a mission to turn back the clock and get rid of my sun damage. As these treatments are quite pricey, I did some research and found that many dermatologists found that the Sciton BBL machine gave better results than IPL lasers. I was very excited to give it a try. Melissa did the treatment and I was pleasantly surprised that it actually hurt WAY less than my previous IPL treatment. I noticed my freckles darken (like they are supposed to) which is a good sign that the treatment was effective. A week later and they are starting to flake off (yay!).
Melissa also did the Skin Tyte treatment on my neck, which was quick and painless. The machine just warms up your skin and once it feels "hot" you let her know. This is a cumulative treatment so I will have to try a few more.
Overall, great experience. The staff are knowledgeable, outgoing, and fun! Quite a change from the stuffy clinic I went to before. The big reason I wanted to try a new clinic was because I was looking for a place that felt comfortable and homey with awesome staff - SKN didn't disappoint! I definitely would recommend."
"Excellent holistic and effective treatment, lovely knowledgable staff. Outstanding."
"Nice clinic, lovely atmosphere, very good service, professional staff.
I will recommend this place any time.
