Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DOES FOREVER YOUNG BBL WORK?
Using advanced technology, Forever Young BBL harnesses the power of laser light BBL (intense pulse light) to stimulate genetic changes at the molecular level of older, aged skin cells to more closely resemble the genetics of younger, healthier skin cells. This is a high level technology that doctors once only dreamed of. In essence, the treatment tricks cells into thinking they’re younger than they actually are. That’s unlike anything we’ve ever experienced.
