The Dark Spots BBL™ Forever Young treatment is a powerful tool that can remove unwanted brown spots and age spots, and effectively address pigmentation issues.

BBL™ Forever Young is an innovative technology that delivers light therapy targeting dark spots and promotes a more refreshed, rejuvenated, and youthful appearance.

What Are Dark Spots?

Dark spots form when the skin produces more melanin than usual in certain areas. They are not a cause for medical concern, but may be removed for cosmetic reasons. Dark spots may also be called age spots or sun spots.

Dark spots may form on the back of the hands, face, back, and shoulders. They can range from light brown to dark brown, depending on the person’s skin tone. Dark spots vary in size and can form on any part of the body, but are most common in areas frequently exposed to the sun.

Causes of Dark Spots

Dark spots may be caused by:

  • Sun damage can lead to sun spots, solar lentigines, or liver spots
  • Hormonal changes in women, especially during pregnancy, can lead to small patches of skin discoloration
  • Medication side effects, from non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), tetracyclines, and psychotropic drugs
  • Inflammation may occur as a result of eczema, psoriasis, skin injury, and acne
  • Wound healing from an insect bite, burn, or cuts
  • Irritation caused by cosmetic skin or hair products
  • Diabetes and associated conditions can cause darkened, velvety skin, and shin spots

How Long Will Results Last?

How To Naturally Prevent Dark Spots

It’s important to use sunscreen every day to help prevent the formation of dark spots for every skin type and tone. All skin tones need a sunscreen of broad-spectrum 30 or higher and should be reapplied every two hours. SPF 30 is the minimum to support skin texture, clarity, and color.

A dark spot corrector can be used in addition to serums to treat and lighten dark spots. It’s important to use a dark spot corrector immediately after the pimple resolves to avoid post-inflammatory dark spots.

A vitamin C serum is key to speeding up recovery. As soon as patients notice a dark spot forming, they should apply a vitamin C serum between their cleanser and moisturizer. Other effective brightening ingredients include kojic acid, cysteamine, tranexamic acid, licorice root extract, and arbutin.
