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 aging and other environmental components. As we age, the genes within our skin cells are programmed to express themselves differently than when we were younger.
Ground-breaking research performed at Stanford University Dermatology Department 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 aging, 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!

The goal of the Forever Young BBL Protocol is to maintain healthy skin and delay the appearance of skin aging safely, effectively, and with minimal to no risk of complications.
For greater improvement in skin laxity, Sciton’s SkinTyte™ procedure can be performed immediately after the Forever Young BBL treatment.
Forever Young BBL treatments are effective for keeping skin healthy and slowing the signs of skin aging (e.g. laxity, pigmented and vascular lesions, uneven pigmentation and textural changes). BBL treatments at regular intervals appear to promote the maintenance of epidermal structures, contributing to the preservation of healthy skin and a youthful appearance. Forever Young BBL has shown to be safe and effective in skin types I-V. The benefits of BBL treatment are maintaining skin tone, clarity, smoothness, and delaying the development of rhytids and laxity.
