Many people feel the pressure to look young, especially in business where looking good plays a vital role in corporate longevity. Yet the tone and texture of your skin remains the hallmark of your age.
Our cells are constantly in a state of renewal including our gene expression, which is the information encoded in our genes which determines how we age. As more genes associated with ageing and environmental components are activated, our skin cells are programmed to express themselves differently from our youth and as a consequence, the skin’s structure and tone equally changes in appearance over time.
At the forefront of the cosmetic industry’s advanced technology is Sciton’s non-ablative dermatological Forever Young BBL™ light therapy which reaches deep into the skin cell and acts like a genetic switch.
Incredible, you say? Yes, it is!
Not only does the treatment boost our cells’ natural ability to counter the ageing skin by creating more youthful proteins, BBL™ will leave you looking more luminous; a youthful appearance that an anti-wrinkle treatment alone cannot fix.
Working in two ways by using a different range of wavelengths without removing the layers of skin, the laser first delivers quick and intense pulses of light energy into the targeted area of the skin to absorb pigmentation irregularities and reduce blemishes, actions that immediately improve the skin’s tone and texture. The second process then heats the skin’s deeper layers to stimulate collagen production, leaving the skin firmer and more youthful in appearance.
Along with the health benefits, Forever Young BBL’s unique properties make it an ideal treatment to correct sun damaged skin, freckles, broken capillaries and spider veins, vascular lesions, rosacea, redness, acne and wrinkles.

There are no limitations with Forever Young BBL™ light therapy as it can reprogram the age of your skin on any part of your body including your face, neck, décolletage and hands. Additionally, BBL™ can target sun-damaged skin, sun spots and freckles, and help minimise facial capillaries, acne and rosacea.
During the procedure, patients will feel the warm and intense light beams as they send light energy deep into the skin. This process boosts the body’s natural ability to fight ageing, however, in some instances, patients with more sensative skin may experience some level of discomfort. Our senior dermal therapist, Michele Hetherington will walk you through the process so you know what to expect and what level treatment is best suited for you.
Here are some of the most popular questions we are asked.
Q: How many treatments will you need?
Not one patient is ever the same because of our unique skin composition. However, Forever Young BBL™ light therapy can cater to most skin conditions as a single or multiple treatment. The benefits are even more profound if you have three sessions several weeks apart. Please view our video on our Broadband Light.
Q: Will I experience prolonged downtime following the treatment?
Unlike other skin resurfacing treatments, Forever Young BBL™ light therapy requires little or no downtime, subject to the condition of your skin and the level of energy used during the procedure. Your skin, however, will remain sensitive to direct sunlight, and you will be directed by Michele or Dr Chang to apply maximum sunscreen protection during the recovery process.
Q: What are the longterm benefits backed by science?
Studies conducted over the past decade at Stanford University, California revealed that Forever Young BBL™ light therapy influenced gene expression by reaching deep into the cells at a molecular level; a process that activated the genes associated with youth.
To enjoy the therapy’s full benefits and optimum results, bi-yearly treatments are recommended so that new skin cells will continue to be programmed, giving you a more youthful and luminious appearance.
