About BroadBand Light Therapy
A Forever Young BBL PhotoFacial (known as BroadBand Light Therapy) is a popular skin rejuvenation treatment offered at Yonick Plastic Surgery. A procedure that has many similarities to IPL (intense-pulsed light), a BBL PhotoFacial uses innovative technology engineered by Sciton to deliver advanced light therapy to the skin, targeting the visible signs of aging and sun damage. The result is a more youthful and smoother skin appearance. Both men and women can benefit from a BBL PhotoFacial, since it works to correct and treat a number of skin conditions. Our Midland, MI patients love this treatment and incorporate it as part of their routine skin maintenance program to help keep a more even and smooth skin texture and to generate a fresh, glowing skin tone year-round. A Forever Young BBL PhotoFacial, performed by our seasoned in-house Nurse Practioner, Karen Yonick, is a proven therapy that helps to restore our patients' confidence in their skin.

What does BBL treat?
BroadBand Light Therapy is an effective treatment for skin that has visible signs of aging and sun damage. It can be scheduled ahead of a big event, such as a wedding or vacation, or it can be used as a part of your routine skin maintenance program to help treat a number of skin conditions. A Forever Young BBL can treat and correct:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Uneven skin tone (rough skin texture)
- Large pores
- Unwanted freckles
- Broken blood vessels
- Red and brown discoloration
Before any BBL session, it is best to avoid UV (ultraviolet) light exposure of any kind (including tanning beds) for at least 10 – 14 days.
forever young (BBL) technology
BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL) takes traditional Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to a new level. It is the industry’s most powerful light therapy device and sets new standards in how we are able to treat skin conditions affected by sun damage, aging, and active lifestyles. BBL uses broad-spectrum infrared rays of light to selectively target certain areas of the skin and precisely the upper dermal layers to treat a variety of conditions. With different wavelengths that can be adjusted depending on your unique skin condition, BBL offers flexible, consistent results that have been shown to be superior over other IPL systems.
During your BBL treatment
After creating the necessary treatment plan, the settings of the BBL Forever Young device will be adjusted to fit your specific needs. Before beginning treatment, your eyes will be covered with small glasses to protect them from the light. The BBL device will glide gently over your skin concentrating on the problem areas that are to be targeted. The amount of time needed for the therapy will vary depending on the skin condition being treated and the size of the area. Following the treatment, a soothing cream will be applied to your skin. We will also give you post-treatment care instructions and will advise you to avoid sun exposure. Otherwise, patients are generally able to resume their normal daily routine. The face will be red and slightly swollen for a few hours but by the next day you should be able to apply makeup.
After your BBL treatment, the dermal layer of skin gently flakes off, leaving a fresh layer of healthy skin that looks and feels younger. Most patients will see their results within 2 – 3 weeks following the initial treatment, but optimal results will normally be seen after a series of BBL treatments. Depending on your unique treatment plan, several appointments can be spaced about 4 - 6 weeks apart to achieve the most optimal outcome. After your Forever Young BBL PhotoFacial treatment, you can expect to see:
- Clearer skin
- A brighter, softer complexion
- Less redness
- A healthier skin tone and balance
- A brighter overall appearance
BBL Pricing and Packages
BroadBand Light Therapy, using the Forever Young PhotoFacial system, has the capability to treat a number of areas on the face and body, especially those prone to get acne or that have been exposed to the sun. Most of our Midland, MI patients opt to have a series of BBL treatments, usually three, to get the right results. The price of our BBL PhotoFacial treatments will vary depending on the number of areas being addressed, the size of the area being treated, and finally, how many sessions are needed. At Yonick Plastic Surgery, we offer skincare packages and bundling pricing for patients who undergo multiple treatments.
