Sciton® Forever Young™

What is Sciton® Forever Young™?

Sciton® Forever Young™ is a light therapy treatment designed to improve signs of aging and sun damage. Completely non-invasive, this treatment delivers broadband light (BBL) to the epidermis and dermis, stimulating collagen production for long-lasting improvement. It can also boast Prejuvenation™ benefits, preventing aging before it occurs! 

This light therapy treats a wide variety of conditions for many areas of the face and body. Unlike other lasers, this treatment can be used on the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms to address the following: 

  • Uneven skin tone. 
  • Sun damage. 
  • Fine lines and wrinkles. 
  • Large pores. 
  • Vascular lesions. 
  • Acne.

Who Can Benefit from Sciton® Forever Young™?

Individuals who are looking to improve light signs of aging or who wish to prevent aging before it occurs can often benefit from the Sciton® Forever Young™ treatment. Generally, BBL treatments work best on lighter skin tones, though some darker tones may be able to benefit as well. In order to determine if this treatment is right for you, contact our office to schedule a consultation. 

The Sciton® Forever Young™ Procedure

During your Forever Young™ BBL treatment, you will be given protective eyewear to put on, and a cool gel will first be applied to the treatment area. The system will then use infrared light technology to visibly improve the topmost layers of skin, while also revitalizing old skin cells below the dermis. You will receive 3-4 passes of light during this procedure for the best results. 

Pass 1: 

This first pass is a base pass to address the overall appearance of your skin. 

Pass 2: 

This pass is the corrective vascular pass to lighten the look of small visible vessels, flushing, or telangiectasias.  

Pass 3: 

Call the corrective pigment pass, this third pass targets pigmented lesions. 

Pass 4:

 The fourth pass is optional, and provides deep heating to stimulate tissues deeper in the skin to tighten the skin. 

Overall, this treatment is very quick, as a full-face treatment can be performed in as little as 15 minutes.  

Sciton® Forever Young™ Results

There is no downtime required following this treatment, so you can return to your regular activities right away. Mild redness may occur for some, which will resolve in a few hours. If you received this treatment to soften the appearance of sunspots and freckles, these areas will darken after treatment, and then flake off within 1-2 weeks. Your skin will be sensitive after treatment, so be sure to wear sunscreen when spending time outdoors. We recommend patients receive Sciton® Forever Young treatments at least two times per year for the best results.

Can I wear makeup after Juvederm?

It is advised that patients avoid wearing makeup for at least 12 hours after their Juvederm treatment.

Can Juvederm be reversed?

Yes, Juvederm can be reversed using an enzyme called hyaluronidase. When injected into the treatment area, this enzyme dissolves the hyaluronic acid particles.

Can Juvederm cause blindness?

The risk of blindness following Juvederm injections is extremely rare.

Can Juvederm migrate?

In rare cases, Juvederm can migrate to other areas of the face within a few days of treatment. This occurs when the filler moves before it has fully bonded to your facial tissue.

Can you drink alcohol after Juvederm?

It is best to avoid alcohol consumption for 24 hours following all filler treatments.

Can you get half a syringe of Juvederm?

Very few fillers are available in a half syringe. This s because half of a syringe is a very small amount and is only recommended for focused areas.

Can you split a syringe of Juvederm?

Does Juvederm work immediately?
