Forever Young BBL™ Photofacial
Looking for a non-invasive treatment that can improve the appearance of redness, skin discoloration, and sun damage with no downtime? You may want to consider the Forever Young BBL Photofacial at Beth Collins, M.D. in Guilford, CT.
What is the Forever Young BBL Photofacial?
The Forever Young BBL Photofacial is a cosmetic treatment that helps women and men from New Haven, Madison, New London, and other cities near Guilford combat the signs of aging, particularly those associated with vascular redness or sun damage. It harnesses the power of broadband light technology, or BBL, to target the underlying structures that cause this discoloration and destroy them.
How Does Forever Young BBL Work?
Forever Young BBL uses the power of gentle, targeted light to destroy structures that cause the signs of aging in the skin. What makes this Photofacial different from other laser rejuvenation treatments is the broad spectrum of light used. While laser treatments typically only use a single wavelength of light, Forever Young BBL Photofacials utilize several different wavelengths. These different wavelengths of light are absorbed by the blood vessels and excess pigmentation that cause vascular redness and discoloration, destroying them and the cosmetic problems they cause.
What Can Forever Young BBL Treat?
While Forever Young BBL cannot eliminate wrinkles, fine lines, or scars, it can manage many other skin concerns, including:
- Vascular redness
- Sun damage to the face, chest, back, hands, and arms
- Small spider veins
- Broken capillaries

What Can I Expect From a Forever Young BBL Treatment?
Each Forever Young BBL treatment can last anywhere from 15-60 minutes, depending upon the size of the treatment area. Patients report that the procedure is relatively comfortable, feeling like a warm rubber band snapping against the skin.
Following treatment, redness similar to that of a mild sunburn is common, and usually last about 24-hours after treatment. Mild blistering and bruising sometimes occur but are less common.
Typically, Dr. Collins recommends that patients undergo somewhere between 3 to 5 treatments to see significant results. These treatments must be spaced 3 weeks apart.
Who Is Not a Good Candidate for Forever Young BBL?
Individuals with sun tanned skin, connective tissue diseases, autoimmune disorders, or pacemakers cannot receive Forever Young BBL treatments. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are also advised not to undergo the procedure.
