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 practitioner or our aesthetic registered nurse, is a proven therapy that helps to restore our patients' confidence in their skin.

Forever Young BBL™ Reviews
"I had the Forever Clear BBL done by Karen. At 32 years old, I suffer from adult hormonal acne. I was nervous about how this treatment would feel. Karen calmed my nerves and was very professional and informative about the steps she was taking. My pores already look so much tighter/smaller, feels so soft, and my acne looks much lighter in such a short time. I am looking forward to the next 48 hours how my face will look after getting this treatment! Amazing...highly recommend!"- AW / Office Visit / Apr 13, 2018

"I had gone in to see Dr. Yonick for a tummy tuck evaluation and a face lift. The staff was amazing, friendly and professional. I was initially evaluated by Dr. Yonick for a face lift as my skin was very discolored and sagging. Dr. Yonick also noticed a few areas of concern for skin cancer on my face before we did anything else and he took a few biopsies. They luckily all came back benign but I had peace of mind and was taught at length about sunscreen. We then addressed I didn't need a face lift. He recommended Halo laser and BBL treatment plan. I am in the middle of my treatment plan now and couldn't be happier about my results. I was even happier I didn't need a face lift! I was also evaluated for a tummy tuck and looking to have a combination surgery with another procedure I need to have done. Dr. Yonick showed me many before and after pictures in his office, explained the procedure. I was recommended to Dr. Yonick by a friend of mine and I have been so happy with my services."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Sep 16, 2019

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 Forever Young BBL 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
