Forever Young BBL™
Humankind has been searching lifetimes for the fountain of youth and now, Altaire Clinic has finally found it! Well, at least for the skin, it is here in the form of Forever Young BBL™ (FYBBL) as a no downtime cosmetic laser procedure.
Through light therapy, Forever Young BBL™ combines various energy levels and filters to target areas of damaged skin. With this technology, we can stop and reverse the signs of ageing by using established protocols outlined by a Stanford University Fall of 2013 research. The procedure can vary with each appointment since our providers customize each treatment to the changes in your skin health (no cookie cutter approach). The recommendation is 2-3 times per year and research has shown the reproducible results that in a decade, you will aesthetically look 10 years younger than when you started. Sound too good to be true? It’s not, and here’s how it works.
Light is extremely healing and vital to all living things, including your skin. The procedure utilizes various light filters to activate receptors on the DNA that have fallen dormant throughout the ageing process. Research has shown that if you can activate these receptors, then as your skin turns over, your more youthful expression shines through.
Forever Young BBL™ treats a wide variety of conditions removing age spots, freckles, redness, small vessels, hair reduction, tightens skin, and more. The treatment is recommended for one’s face, neck, chest, and hands. The BBL laser can also be utilized on all parts of the body to correct and optimize one’s skin health.
Regain your hands’ youthful and smooth appearance by treating signs of age, pigmentation and blood vessels. Stimulate your skin’s collagen to improve volume, contouring, elasticity, tone, and texture.
*Please keep in mind that every patient is unique and your results for each treatment may vary.
