Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results. Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.

during treatment

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 being performed. Your practitioner will discuss all of your options with you.

The procedure is gentle, noninvasive, and safe. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, however, you may choose to use it on more sensitive areas in which case it will be applied onsite by our nurse. You’ll also have access to our PRO-NOX device to self-administer as needed. PRO-NOX is an inhalable pain reduction gas that dentists’ offices have been using for years; it combines nitrous oxide and oxygen for subtle and almost-instantaneous pain relief with no lasting effects, so you’ll be perfectly safe to drive yourself home. During your treatment, you’ll simply inhale through the mouthpiece to reach your desired comfort level. The best part is that within 10 minutes, all analgesic will be out of your system and you’ll be able to safely drive yourself home.

The number of treatments you need is based on your specific skin condition. You may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment/results.

It is important to follow the aftercare instructions; you will be asked to use specific post treatment skin products and instructed on how to use them. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.

Forever Clear BBL acne therapy

Forever Clear BBL has now proven to be helpful in the treatment of acne. In many cases, this offers an alternative to oral medications such as Accutane or long-term antibiotics. The shorter wavelengths of BBL, in the blue-light spectrum, attack p-acne bacteria on the surface and in the sebaceous gland. Along with a home skincare program designed for acne-prone skin, you can experience significant long-term clearance.*

What causes acne? Acne occurs when hair follicle pores are blocked by natural components of the skin. This is the root of most acne lesions. Once blocked, inflammation and bacteria overgrowth occur leading to red bumps and cysts in the skin. Sebaceous or sweat glands of the skin can contribute excessive amounts of sebum into the plugged follicle increasing inflammation. Hormones can also play a role. Most teenagers are affected to some degree. Adults, often, get acne for the first time while others have suffered since the teenage years. Acne is not life-threatening, but it can cause physical disfigurement (scarring) and emotional distress if not treated early.

What options do I have besides oral medications? Forever Clear BBL has now proven to be helpful in the treatment of acne.* Microdermabrasion and chemical peels also offer alternative ways to remove persistent and stubborn acne.

How does the BBL treatment work? Sciton BBL is an FDA-approved treatment that utilizes a blue filter to selectively target the p-acnes bacteria that are partially responsible for acne in the skin.

What is the treatment like? A thin layer of gel is applied to your skin, followed by the BBL treatment. Most patients have minimal discomfort. Treatment sessions last 20-30 minutes.

What should I expect after treatment? After treatment is completed, some may experience temporary reddening and and minimal swelling of the acne, and surrounding skin for 1-2 days.* This is transient and usually associated with minimal to no downtime. Makeup can be applied immediately, if desired.

How many treatments will I need? To achieve maximum improvement with BBL, a series of 8 weekly treatments is most effective. Most patients will need periodic touch up treatments ranging from monthly to every 6 months, depending on your acne type and severity.*

Forever Tyte BBL skin tightening

As our skin ages, its base foundation known as the dermal matrix begins to lose its tight, interwoven structure as some of its elastin and collagen strands become stretched. There is also a decreased production of collagen and elastin. The SkinTyte procedure utilizes infrared thermal energy to deeply heat collagen in the dermis. The heat also initiates the bodys natural healing or repair process, which creates a renewed collagen foundation leading to increased skin firmness*. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse providing the patient a comfortable and safe procedure.

Who should consider Forever Tyte BBL? The procedure is recommended for those who desire mild to moderate, noticeable skin tightening improvement*, without surgery.

How much downtime will there be after treatment? The Forever Tyte BBL treatment is non-invasive so there is no downtime. You are able to immediately resume your normal activities and even apply makeup or sunscreen after each session with no visible signs of treatment. You may experience some mild redness in the treated area, but this will fade away within minutes post treatment.

What areas can be treated? Forever Tyte BBL treatments are safe for all skin colors and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness is desired*. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen, thighs, hands and arms. You should consult with your practitioner regarding the treatment options that are best for you.

How many treatments will I need before I begin to see results? 3-5 treatment sessions are often recommended to achieve maximum collagen rebuilding and skin firming, but your practitioner can work with you on a personalized treatment plan. You may see immediate firming results right after treatment, but the full effect of improvement is achieved several months after treatment as collagen continues to rebuild*.

What aftercare do I need? No special skin care regimen is required following treatment. However, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use a good sunscreen. Your practitioner can also recommend a home skin care regimen if desired.

Am I able to have other laser or light treatments with Forever Tyte BBL? Yes, there are many procedures that your practitioner may recommend to you to have in tandem with Forever Tyte BBL.
