What does the Sciton BBL Photofacial and Benjamin Buttons have in common? Aging backwards! Yes, BBL Photofacials can slow down skin aging until it actually stops. A study conducted by Stanford University followed people who did several treatments each year for 10 years. The participants looked on average 2 years younger at the end than when they started. That means that if you start at age 50, when you are 60, you could look 48. The before and after photos documenting this study are amazing. But even more impressive, when dermatologists looked at before and after biopsies, the older skin looked better than at the beginning of the study – less sun damage, less inflammation and more collagen. Even more interesting to me were the genetic testing findings. To somewhat simplify the complicated findings in the study, basically what happened is the genes turned on when we get old were getting turned off, and the genes that are turned on when we are young and tell us to make new collagen and healthy skin were getting turned on again. It’s much more detailed in the study, but I’m a simple girl so I’ll stick with that summary.
Back to Benjamin Buttons. The first thing that crossed my mind when I read the study and saw the results was Benjamin Buttons because you truly do age in reverse all with a simple treatment using broad band light that has no downtime. We are so in love with this treatment at Prime we offer a discount for a package of 3. Once you complete the package, all future treatments are half price. It’s our Forever Young package!
We love our products, Botox, and filler, but I must say, if I had to choose just one thing for anti-aging, the BBL Photofacial would be it. Don’t believe me? Check out the Stanford study for yourself. I’m sure you will be as impressed as I was which is why I want to share this with as many people as possible. By the way, the aging in reverse won’t be as extreme as the photos below of Benjamin Buttons. There are limits after all. I just wanted an excuse to look for a photo of Brad Pitt to share with you. The one of him on the bike is quite nice I thought! But seriously, who doesn’t want to look younger in 10 years than you do right now? That’s the science behind Sciton’s BBL photofacial.
