What is Forever Clear BBL™

BBL for Acne

Forever Clear BBL™ is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine. BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device delivering light energy deep into your skin to help treat acne, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.

What happens during the procedure?

Skin is first treated with blue BBL light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria at its source, deep down in the pores. Skin is then treated with yellow BBL light to reduce the inflammation and acne-associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin.

For added benefit, the skin is then treated with SkinTyte II™ using infrared light in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process.
The providers at Dorner Plastic Surgery will develop a personalized plan which may include add-on and follow-up BBL treatments, as well as a skincare regimen for clearer skin that lasts. Forever Clear BBL is great for both teens and adults:
- Non-invasive
- Quick and easy
- Virtually painless
- No downtime
- FDA-cleared

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: You can expect to see an improvement after just one treatment, but the total number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare provider will personalize a plan for you.

Q: What should I expect after the treatment?
A: You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. Consult your physician if it does not. Your treated skin will look clearer and pores will be less noticeable. Your healthcare provider will provide you with more information on what to expect as well as give you an aftercare plan to follow that will involve avoiding direct sun exposure and using sunscreen.

Q: What is the recovery time?
A: There is typically no downtime. Most patients can wear makeup and resume normal activities immediately. Please follow your healthcare provider’s aftercare plan until skin is completely healed – typically about one week after the treatment.

BBL SkinTyte

Get rid of wrinkles and loose skin with SkinTyte. This unique treatment helps tighten and remove wrinkles. It can be used anywhere in the body but is especially well suited to places that traditionally are hard to improve with other methods such as the belly button, knees, face, and arms. It works by heating the dermal collagen, which energizes the body’s natural healing process. Your body will increase its rate of collagen production, which tightens and smooths the skin of the treated areas. This procedure is done in a series of treatments and has no downtime.

BBL Hair Removal

BBL Hair Removal, also known as Forever Bare BBL, is a more comfortable laser hair removal procedure. What makes this procedure unique is the in-motion technology where the laser pulses are placed using more pulses but less energy. This greatly reduces the discomfort of the procedure to pain-free for most patients. The pulses of light provided during the BBL treatments causes the hair follicles to stop producing hair providing permanent hair removal. Most areas require a minimum of 6 treatments and are performed at 4-6 week intervals. Stop wasting time in the morning shaving! Enjoy smooth silky skin the moment you wake up!

Forever Young BBL

What if there was a treatment that could slow down the aging clock and keep you forever young? Forever Young BBL does just that through innovative technology that targets the signs of aging and sun damage and provides a more youthful appearance.

Forever Young BBL not only corrects but maintains your youthful skin. This treatment is considered one of the best investments for your skin that you can make. It can prevent significant signs of aging. A ground-breaking study by Stanford University found that skin actually reversed the aging process over a ten-year period.

During the study before & after photos were rated by a blind panel of experts. Consistently, the decade older photos rated as younger than the photo prior to initiating treatment. The RNA expressions 10 years later were also that of younger skin. If you are serious about younger looking skin, you should be undergoing this treatment.

Dorner Plastic Surgery is one of just a few central Ohio locations that provides BBL. Watch the video below to learn more about this amazing technology.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can Forever Young BBL really stop the clock on the appearance of aging skin?
A: Yes! It was proven in a long-term clinical study. Patients received regular BBL treatments over the course of a decade. At the end of the study, doctors judged the patients to appear 11 years younger than their actual age. In other words, they looked younger than when the study began.

Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient, and your clinician will personalize a plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your clinician may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to optimize your results. Remember that regular treatments—at least once a year—were proven to make patients look ten years younger than when they first started Forever Young BBL treatments.

Q: Am I a good candidate for Forever Young BBL?
A: Your clinician can fine tune Forever Young BBL for your skin type and for your ideal results. The long-term effects have been proven in most skin types, including people with olive to darker skin. Men, women, fair, dark…almost anyone can enjoy the benefits of Forever Young BBL.

Q: At what age should I start BBL treatments?
A: Forever Young BBL isn’t just a beauty treatment. It’s a preventive regimen—possibly the best investment anyone can make in his or her skin. Both men and women with almost any skin type can protect themselves against the sun and environmental damage that adds up over time. In fact, the best time to think about the effects of aging is before they appear. Since the ten-year study shows that regular Forever Young BBL treatments stop the skin’s appearance of aging…why wait?

Q: What will happen during the procedure?
A: Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. Typically, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, however, your clinician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas. You may feel a quick, warm sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed.

Q: How long will it take to recover?
A: This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to apply makeup, return to work and resume most of your activities immediately.

Q: What should I expect after the treatment?
A: You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated area followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, pores will be less noticeable, and sun spots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments and the area treated. Your clinician will provide you with complete information about the post treatment care and results.

Q: What aftercare plan do I need?
A: It is important to follow your clinician’s treatment plan. You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your treated skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
