Overview of Forever Young BBL
As we age, the genes associated with skin ageing are activated resulting in the tell-tale signs associated with older skins. These includes:
- Skin becoming thin and loose
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Sun spots and other textural changes
Medaesthetics in Perth is proud to introduce ForeverYoung BBL™ from Sciton, a revolutionary treatment that sends patented light energy deep into the skin to reprogram the cells to behave like young skin cells.
Over the past ten years, BBL (Broad Band Light) has cemented its place as number 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 Broad Band Light (BBL) treatment in 2013.
We have treated (and continue to treat) hundreds of patients in Perth over the past few years with high patient satisfaction and excellent clinical outcome.
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.
BBL™ reaches deep into the cell and activates certain genes associated with youth while turning off other genes tied to ageing. As a result, you create more of the kinds of proteins and other building blocks you had when you were younger. New skin cells are programmed to be younger, giving you beautiful, youthful skin.
Ground-breaking research performed at Stanford University in the US shows that BBL influences gene expression and changes 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.
But that’s not all…
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 11 years younger than their actual age at the study’s end.
In other words, they looked younger than when they started the study!
- Active Acne Breakouts
- Reversing Sun Damaged Skin
- Sun Spots, Age Spots, Freckles
- Facial Capillaries & Rosacea
- Unwanted Body Hair
- Skin Rejuvenation
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 those 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 condition being treated and the level of energy used. In most cases, you can apply makeup immediately so there is virtually no downtime.
You may be sensitive to sunlight and should apply sunscreen and other skin care products as directed by your clinician. 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™ Photo Gene-modulation treatment costs $700 for the full face. We recommend a series of 3 treatments 8 weeks apart initially and then every 6 months (or whenever your budget allows) for ongoing benefits and continuous regulation of genes expression.

At Medaesthetics®, patient education is our priority. Here are a few important points patients need to know before undergoing any skin treatment with Lasers and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) devices:
Not all Laser and IPL Platforms are the same.
Cheap devices manufactured in Asia have flooded the market in recent years and are being used across most States and Territories of Australia without any serious government regulation restricting their use.
As a result, there has been a significant rise in “laser salons” staffed with unqualified, non-medical operators performing dermatological treatments with these devices. Suboptimal treatment outcomes, serious burns and irreversible scarring are some of the consequences of such practice.
Dermatological Lasers are classified into various categories based upon their power output. Class 4 (C4) Laser devices are considered the most powerful and can only be operated by Licensed Medical doctors in most States and Territories of Australia.
High-end Laser and IPL devices usually cost in excess of $100,000. Manufactured in Europe and the US, such devices are only found in reputable Cosmetic Medical Practices owned and operated by medical doctors. In Australia, these devices can only be sold to Registered Medical Personnel.
Anyone who has experienced a dermatological laser or IPL treatment at a non-medical practice with suboptimal clinical outcome; we encourage them to contact us for an obligation free consultation and to find out why Medaesthetics® has become the most advanced dermatological laser clinic in WA.
