We all want brighter, younger and healthier looking skin.  What if we told you that you achieve all of that PLUS stopping the aging of your skin?  Well, with BBL treatments we can!  There are a limited number of MedSpa's in the Kansas City area that offer these treatments, and we are proud to be one of them.  Our very talented and knowledgeable estheticians, will guide you through the proper treatment plan and work to deliver the best possible results for correction and the prevention of aging. Many skin care products claim and make false promises that they make skin look younger, make skin healthier and keep skin from aging, these are all results that BBL can offer.  Contact our Kansas City area MedSpa to schedule your complimentary complexion analysis with Keri or Heather today.

There is a lot of comparison out there stating that BBL(broad band light) and IPL(intense pulsed light) treatments are the same.  We just wanted to clear up a few misconceptions about the comparison of these two treatments.  There are over 30 different IPL devices on the market today, and unfortunately very little training for the operators of these powerful machines.  BBL is the latest technology in photorejuvenation and  Sciton is the only manufacturer of BBL and offers unmatched training and advanced courses to ensure the operators of their devices are able to deliver the best and safest treatments available. The skin looks younger when brighter and reflects more light. Both BBL and IPL work to correct damaged skin through photorejuvenation, which is where the more common term photofacial comes from. They eliminate sundamage(brown spots), rosacea, acne and minimize pore size.  This is all that the IPL has to offer.  Where BBL excels is while the treatment is much more efficient and powerful using twin lamp technology and specific filters that travel to different depths in the skin to reach the specific target,  it also maintains skin health and delays skin aging.  There are no other treatments or products on the market that are clinically proven to deliver these results.  The Forever Young BBL treatments can be done on the full body to treat and hyperpigmentation.  Aside from the face, the most common areas are the neck, chest and hands.  Combining Forever Young BBL treatments with a Nano Peel or an Artic Peel will help remove surface dead skin cells to enhance the results.  These laser peels are pain free and have little to no downtime.

BBL is the most reliable form of photorejuvenation on the market.  We have found that it treats rosacea and inflammatory acne better than pricy prescriptions that have to be taken over extended periods of time.  Most BBL treatments are done 3-4 weeks apart and a series of 3-5 to see the most desired results.  It is recommended to follow up with one treatment a quarter to maintain healthy skin and continue the delay of aging.   If you're ready for your skin to look at feel better and prevent skin aging, contact one of our Kansas City Licensed Estheticians, Heather or Keri, today.
