Forever Clear BBL™ in Columbus, OH

What is Forever Clear BBL™? – BBL for Acne

Forever Clear BBL™ is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine. BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device delivering light energy deep into your skin to help treat acne, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.

What happens during the procedure?

Skin is first treated with blue BBL light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria at its source, deep down in the pores. Skin is then treated with yellow BBL light to reduce the inflammation and acne-associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin.

The providers at Dorner Plastic Surgery will develop a personalized plan which may include add-on and follow-up BBL treatments, as well as a skincare regimen for clearer skin that lasts. Forever Clear BBL is great for both teens and adults:
– Non-invasive
– Quick and easy
– Virtually painless
– No downtime
– FDA-cleared

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: You can expect to see an improvement after just one treatment, but the total number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare provider will personalize a plan for you.

Q: What should I expect after the treatment?
A: You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. Consult your physician if it does not. Your treated skin will look clearer and pores will be less noticeable. Your healthcare provider will provide you with more information on what to expect as well as give you an aftercare plan to follow that will involve avoiding direct sun exposure and using sunscreen.

Q: What is the recovery time?
A: There is typically no downtime. Most patients can wear makeup and resume normal activities immediately. Please follow your healthcare provider’s aftercare plan until skin is completely healed – typically about one week after the treatment.

BBL (BroadBand Light)

What if there was a treatment that could slow down the aging clock and keep your skin looking fresh and young? BBL (BroadBand Light) is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device and it does just that. Through innovative technology that targets the signs of aging and sun damage, BBL is a rejuvenating photo facial treatment that can modify the gene expression within your skin to become more youthful.

BBL not only corrects, but maintains your healthy & youthful appearance. This treatment is considered one of the best investments for your skin that you can make. A ground-breaking study by Stanford University found that skin actually reversed the aging process over a ten-year period with regular BBL treatments.

During BBL treatments photothermal energy is applied to the upper layers of the skin to treat fine facial vessels that cause redness and the melanin within pigmented lesions, freckles or sun spots. Treated skin cells absorb heat from the photothermal energy stimulating them to regenerate new collagen and give skin a smoother, firmer and more even appearance.

Dorner Plastic Surgery is one of just a few central Ohio locations that provides BBL. Watch the video below to learn more about this amazing technology.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can Forever Young BBL really stop the clock on the appearance of aging skin?
A: Yes! It was proven in a long-term clinical study. Patients received regular BBL treatments over the course of a decade. At the end of the study, doctors judged the patients to appear 11 years younger than their actual age. In other words, they looked younger than when the study began.

Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient, and your clinician will personalize a plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your clinician may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to optimize your results. Remember that regular treatments—at least once a year—were proven to make patients look ten years younger than when they first started BBL treatments.

Q: Am I a good candidate for Forever Young BBL?
A: Our nurse practitioners will meet with you to evaluate your skin’s health, type & condition to formulate a treatment plan for your ideal results. The long-term effects have been proven in most skin types, including people with olive to darker skin. Call today to schedule your free consultation!

Q: At what age should I start BBL treatments?
A: BBL isn’t just a beauty treatment. It’s a preventive regimen—possibly the best investment anyone can make in his or her skin. Both men and women with almost any skin type can protect themselves against the sun and environmental damage that adds up over time. In fact, the best time to think about the effects of aging is before they appear. Since the science & studies show that regular BBL treatments stop the skin’s appearance of aging…why wait?

Q: What will happen during the procedure?
A: Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. Depending on the type of treatment you are doing based on your consultation, topical numbing agents may be used. You may feel a quick, warm pinprick sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed.

Q: How long will it take to recover?
A: This is a noninvasive procedure. In many cases, when undergoing Forever Young BBL treatments for maintenance, you are able to apply makeup, return to work and resume most of your activities immediately. Corrective BBL treatments can often take a day or two to fully heal

Q: What should I expect after the treatment?
A: You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated area followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Swelling, especially around the eyes, can be common and usually subsides within a few days. Your treated skin will feel smoother, pores will be less noticeable, and sun spots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments and the area treated. Your clinician will provide you with complete information about the post treatment care and results.

Q: What aftercare plan do I need?
A: It is important to follow your clinician’s treatment plan. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your treated skin and use a good broad-spectrum sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
