The BBL™ Forever Young treatment effectively addresses visible spider veins and capillaries. Photorejuvenation is a great treatment option for individuals with different skin types.
What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are small damaged veins that can be blue, purple, or red and appear on the legs or face. Spider veins can appear in the form of thin lines, webs, or branches.
What Causes Spider Veins
Spider veins may form in the legs when the valves inside the veins stop working properly. Valves in the veins close once the blood has passed through it to prevent blood from flowing backward. Weakened or damaged valves may allow blood to pool inside the vein and cause a bulge in the vein that branches out, leading to the appearance of spider veins.
Spider veins on the face may be caused by increased pressure or sun damage that forced tiny blood vessels to burst.

Individuals may be at increased risk of developing spider veins if they:
- Have a family history of spider veins

How Does Treatment Work?
BBL™ Forever Young is an innovative technology that delivers light therapy to target the signs of aging and sun damage and to effectively refresh and rejuvenate the client’s appearance.
Treatment utilizes an optimized wavelength of energy to heat up the treatment area. The energy is finely tuned so that it is only absorbed by the unwanted areas of excessive pigmentation.
Treatment can address facial flushing, rosacea, and spider veins by increasing the temperature around the targeted area and breaking down the off-color pigments so they can be removed by the body.
During the procedure, clients will wear safety glasses. The laser will feel like a quick, warm sensation as the light is absorbed by the treatment area. The entire procedure may last a few minutes or up to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.
What Should Clients Expect After Treatment?
Treatment is noninvasive and doesn’t require any downtime. Clients are able to resume daily activities immediately after the procedure.
The skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and clients will need to avoid direct exposure to sunlight until their skin has healed completely.
Will BBL™ Forever Young Create Natural Results?
Patients who maintain a regular regimen of BBL treatments can reduce and delay the long term signs of skin aging in a very natural way.
How Long Will Results Last?
Results may be visible for up to 10 years, with maintenance treatments.
