Sciton® Forever Young BBL™
Age can deactivate certain genes in our skin that are responsible for its youthful glow, contributing to discoloration, fine lines, and other signs of aging. Now, there is a way to turn those genes back on with a completely non-invasive procedure. Dr. Charles P. Virden offers broadband light skin care treatments for Reno, Tahoe, and Truckee patients with the highly advanced Sciton Forever Young BBL device. These treatments can give you a more even skin tone, reducing not just the signs of aging, but also freckles and dark spots that you may have always had.

About the Procedure
The Sciton Forever Young BBL platform uses a pair of lights that transmit through a handpiece to the skin. Pulses of light at different wavelengths are projected into different depths of the skin to target specific concerns. When the skin absorbs the light, it stimulates collagen production – a critical component of restoring even tone and youthful firmness. Sciton treatments produce beautiful results not just on the face, but also on the hands and other areas where you might have uneven skin tone. The FDA-approved treatments can also tighten the skin and even reduce acne.
Multiple treatments at regular intervals produce the best results. Dr. Virden can set up a treatment schedule for you during an evaluation. This procedure is appropriate for patients of all skin types and colors.

The Forever Young Difference
Traditional broadband light treatments target hyperpigmentation, such as age spots, sun damage, and uneven skin tone. Forever Young BBL is very effective at treating those concerns, but the technology also brings something new to the table. In addition to fading discoloration, Forever Young BBL actually tightens the skin through deep heating of structural tissues, erasing wrinkles and making the skin appear firm and strong.
The difference between this advancement and traditional BBL has been shown through long-term studies at Stanford University and elsewhere. After 10 years of treatment, in many cases patients appeared younger than when they started. Forever Young BBL has been shown to actually reverse aging genes that have begun to degrade, causing them to enliven and resemble younger skin. It is the only technology that has been shown to reverse the signs of aging in this way.

Dr. Virden’s Sciton Forever Young BBL Procedure
Treatments can be performed through our Renovation medical spa in Reno or the Bella Lago location in Truckee. You may be asked to wear protective goggles during your broadband light session to protect your eyes, and topical ointments may be applied for comfort. It’s also important to avoid direct sun exposure to the treatment areas both before and after your appointments. Members of our medical team can make recommendations for sun protection products.
During the treatment, most patients feel a warming sensation as a technician passes the handpiece over the skin. The device is equipped with a thermoelectric monitoring system that keeps light pulses cool so patients have a gentle, comfortable experience.
