Train your skin to look younger

Harness the power of habit.

We know that the effort we invest in establishing good habits now will earn us our just deserts in the years to come. People who started a new exercise routine last month (and stuck with it!) will reap long-term benefits. When it comes to skin health, you are more likely to achieve and maintain your goals by building good habits into your skincare regimen.

Patrick Bitter, Jr., M.D. is a board-certified dermatologist and has pioneered the use of pulsed light technology for skin rejuvenation. In a 2012 collaborative study with the Stanford University Dermatology Department, Dr. Bitter’s research found significant age-delaying benefits in patients treated regularly with the BBL laser.

BBL is most commonly used as a targeted therapy for signs of aging, such as vascular and pigmented lesions, but Dr. Bitter's studies confirm that BBL performed once a quarter changes the behaviour of our skin—it begins to behave like younger skin! When you establish a routine of regular BBL treatments, your skin will look better now and skin aging will be delayed. For example, if your current age is 40 and you have a BBL treatment every three or four months, the evidence suggests that at age 50 your skin will appear very much as it did when you were 40.

The winter season is the ideal time for laser treatments such as BBL. Contact us today to learn more about how BBL can help you achieve your best skin!
