IPL Photorejuvenation: A Fresh Take on Complexion
Over time, our skin inevitably accumulates wrinkles. Our bodies slowly produce less collagen, leaving out skin looser and lax. However, there is a way to combat the effects of aging and skin damage. BroadBand Light targets and treats various skin concerns in a safe and non-surgical therapy.
Using intense pulsed light, photorejuvenation is a controlled treatment to improve the look and feel of your skin.

Many patients can benefit from this cutting-edge treatment option. You might benefit most from this therapy if you have concerns about:

As it is non-surgical, the procedure comes with minimum discomfort and minimal risk.
How Does IPL Work?
Using IPL, a photorejuvenation skin treatment can treat a variety of skin concerns. The focused energy targets both parts of your blood vessels and your skin. When these parts of you absorb the light, they become less visible. Uneven patches begin to fade, and blood vessels fade from sight.
Treatments tend to last about 30-90 minutes, depending on your concerns and the target area. An IPL photofacial usually is comfortable for most patients. They tend to report little more than a slight stinging, akin to a rubber band snapping.
After your session, some redness and swelling are expected. But these will both subside within a few days. In some cases, you might experience bruising. But this also will resolve in a week or two.
Forever Bare BBL
Forever Bare BroadBand Light is a revolutionary method for laser hair removal. Previous methods would focus all the device’s energy on a single area at once. While somewhat effective, it left plenty to be desire.
Forever Bare BBL instead sends multiple lower fluence pulses to targeted areas. Each pulse happens at a high repetition rate, ensuring optimal absorption by the target follicles. This results in a treatment that is safer, faster, and more comfortable. And it still provides improved results.
Benefits of Forever Bare BBL
Compared to older methods of laser hair removal, this sophisticated treatment comes with several benefits.
- Quicker Than Ever – The high repetition rate allows treatment sessions to be completed in far less time. Sessions can last mere minutes.
- Safe and Effective -Since this system uses multiple bursts, it keeps your skin protected. The increased control means a more gradual rise in follicle temperature that keeps the skin around it safer.
- Flexible and Adaptable -Whether you want to treat a small area or a large portion of skin, Forever Bare will work for you. It can treat areas all over the body by adjusting the settings to work optimally with your target areas. It can also work with the widest variety of skin types and tones yet!

Forever Clear BBL
It is time to say goodbye to even the most stubborn of acne. You no longer need to spend hundreds on various medicines and “remedies” that only seem to make the problem worse. It is time for you to try Forever Clear BBL.
What Is Forever Clear BBL?
Forever Clear BLL is a sophisticated, cutting-edge acne treatment. Unlike creams or drugs, it uses the natural power of light to clear up acne. Using Intense Pulsed Light, it comfortably but effectively reduces and eliminates even stubborn patches of acne.
In only a few quick treatments, you will see a significant improvement to your skin.
How Does Forever Clear BBL Work?
Using two targeted steps, Forever Clear BBL delivers light energy into your skin. Your body reacts naturally to this energy, stimulating and regenerating your skin cells around the area. The result is clear and healthy skin that is absolutely radiant.
There are two steps to Forever Clear BBL.
First, we treat your skin with a softer blue BroadBand Light. This frequency of light eliminates bacteria not only on the skin surface, but deep down in your pores. Without this bacteria, your skin will be less inflamed and healthier.
Next, we use a yellow BBL light, further reducing inflammation and redness from acne. After this second phase, your skin will begin to resume its healthy and luminous appearance.
Optional: Step 3
You can add an optional third step using red light to further facilitate your skin’s healing process.
Broadband Light Results
Though most patients will see immediate results, it can take several treatments to fully reach your goals. The average number of treatments is 3-5 for optimal results. Most patients spread their sessions out over a period of several months, with about one session per month.
After each treatment session, you are likely to see improvements. However, it is important to know that your body can respond differently to each session. One session may bring dramatic changes, while another may show little change. This is entirely normal, and it is the end results that matter. And these can take some time to develop as your body continues to produce new collagen.
One of the benefits of BroadBand Light is that you can begin wearing makeup again right after your IPL photofacial. However, we advise being careful while applying it. Photorejuvenation skin treatment leaves the skin a bit more sensitive while it is healing.
