Overview of Forever Young BBL
As we age, the genes associated with the ageing process are activated resulting in the tell-tale signs of skin ageing. These includes:
- Skin becoming thin and loose
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Sunspots and other textural changes
Patients with excessive sun-damage also show premature skin-ageing even at a younger age.
Medaesthetics in Perth is proud to introduce the ForeverYoung BBL™ Skin Rejuvenation. A revolutionary treatment that sends patented light energy deep into the skin to reprogram the skin cells and reverse the ageing process.
Over the past ten years, BBL (BroadBand Light) has cemented its place as number the one skin rejuvenation treatment among the top plastic surgery and dermatology clinics in the US and Europe.
With ForeverYoung™ BBL, the skin doesn’t just look youthful- it’s genetically reprogrammed to become younger.
Medaesthetics was the first clinic in Perth to introduce BroadBand Light (BBL) treatment in 2013.
We have treated (and continue to treat) thousands of patients in Perth over the past few years with high patient satisfaction and excellent clinical outcomes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Forever Young BBL is an innovative technology that uniquely delivers patented light therapy in the deeper skin layers targeting the signs of aging and sun damage and effectively provides a more refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance.
Gene expression is the process by which the information encoded in a gene is used to direct the assembly of a protein molecule. Gene expression is part of how your body creates new cells. Your DNA is a unique blueprint that only you have.
Certain genes can express themselves (turn on or off) based on factors like ageing and other environmental components. As we age, the genes within our skin cells are programmed to express themselves differently than when we were younger.
More information on this is available here.
BBL™ energy reaches deep into the cell and activates certain genes associated with youth while turning off other genes reposnsible for the ageing process.
As a result, the skin creates more of the kinds of proteins and other building blocks which are associated with youth. New skin cells are programmed to be younger, making it beautiful and glowing.

Ground-breaking research performed at Stanford University in the US showed that BBL influences gene expression and changes the skin at a molecular level. The study showed that literally hundreds of genes that are known to be associated with younger skin were activated while others, associated with ageing, were turned off.
A long-term clinical study showed that patients who received regular BBL treatments over the course of a decade were judged by doctors to appear ten years younger than their actual age at the study’s end.
In other words, they looked younger than when they started the study!

All areas of the body can be treated with BBL including the face, neck, décolletage (chest), shoulders, arms, hands, back, abdomen, legs etc. The most common areas are the ones most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight.
BBL delivers intense light beams into the skin which feel warm. In more sensitive areas being treated you may experience some discomfort with Forever Young BBL, however, most patients tolerate the treatment extremely well.
This depends upon the skin condition being treated and the type of skin. BBL has the ability to treat a wide variety of skin conditions like sun spots and freckles in as little as a single treatment session. Your therapist will advise you on a treatment plan to achieve your desired result.
Again, this depends upon the skin type being treated and the level of energy used.
Variable degree of mild redness and swelling may be noticed by a few patients. This settles in the first day or two.
In most cases, you can apply makeup immediately after so there is virtually no downtime. We recommend mineral makeup suitable for post-treatment skin.
It is critical to avoid direct sunlight after any skin treatment during the initial recovery. This is usually the first few days.
It is essential not to apply anything to the healing skin which may irritate it. This includes skin care products with active ingredients such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Exfoliating agents etc.
It is essential to follow your clinician's instruction after your ForeverYoung BBL treatment.
Talk to us about scheduling your personal ForeverYoung BBL treatments. Regular restorative maintenance treatments are recommended for long term improvements to enjoy a more youthful appearance year after year.
BBL treatment costs $700 for the full face. We initially recommend a series of three treatments, eight weeks apart and then every 6 months (or whenever your budget allows) for ongoing benefits.
