BBL Photo Facial

San Francisco BBL Photo Facial

What if there was a way to rejuvenate your skin and delay skin aging with a quick and easy annual treatment? Well, now there is.* Forever Young BBL™ photo facial uses cutting edge technology to deliver targeted light therapy specifically designed to eliminate brown spots and redness, improving both skin tone and glow.* Even more exciting, studies demonstrate that BBL treatments can restore gene expression patterns of aged human skin to resemble that of young skin.* Long term studies show that patients who maintain a regular regimen of BBL treatments annually can reduce and delay signs of skin aging.*

Years of sun exposure can leave your skin looking dry and damaged. The UV rays actually activate pigment producing cells in the skin which is what causes brown spots. And nothing makes your skin look older than blemishes of brown pigment. Luckily, Dr. David Sieber specializes in the treatment of these blemishes on the face, neck, décolletage, hands, arms, and legs using Forever Young BBL™ photo facial.

BBL Photo Facial Technique

BBL is a form of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) which works by directly targeting the pigment within your skin. During the procedure, Dr. Sieber will run a handheld device over the skin in your treatment area. The device emits specific pulses of light depending on what’s being treated. The procedure only takes 15-30 minutes, and can be performed anywhere on the body where pigment exists. If your pigment is severe, you may require several treatments for fully realized results. All of this will be discussed with you in detail during your initial consultation.

Preparing for BBL Photo Facial Procedure

When coming in for a procedure, it’s best to have clean well moisturized skin. Any makeup you have on will need to be removed prior to the procedure. Because the BBL cannot tell the difference between normal pigment from a tan and abnormal pigment from too much sun, please refrain from extended sun exposure or sunless tanning creams/self-tanners for at least 3 weeks prior to your treatment. Do not use aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, ginkgo, or alcohol for at least 1 week before and for 2 days after treatment.

Recovery from BBL Photo Facial Procedure

You may experience a little burning or redness for the first 24 hours post procedure. Immediately after treatment, you’ll notice that any areas of pigment will look darker in color. This means that the treatment worked.* It may take up to 30 days for these darkened areas to slough off from the skin, but when they do, healthier and more even toned skin will be revealed.*


Q: What will happen during the procedure?

A: A cool gel is first applied to the treatment area, then a chilled applicator is placed on the skin to deliver the light therapy. The treatment should last about 15-30 minutes.

Q: Are Forever Young BBL™ treatments uncomfortable?

A: No. However, you may experience some discomfort in more sensitive areas. It will feel like a rubber band snapping on your skin.

Q: Is there any downtime associated with Forever Young BBL™ photo facial?

A: No. In most cases, you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment, and return to your normal routine.

I couldn’t be more pleased and excited about the refresh Dr. Sieber did on my face using a combination of botox and fillers. I had a baby a year ago and my face looked completely deflated. It felt to me that I looked like I had aged 5 years instantly by having a baby over 40. Dr. Sieber looked closely at my face and listened to my desires and fears in terms of the results I was seeking. I really liked that he took a conservative approach and followed up to check in and tweak things once the fillers and I had time to settle in.*

Dr. Sieber is a caring, friendly and talented doctor. I had two long consultations (free of charge) before scheduling my BBL (Brazilian butt lift). The staff and Dr. Sieber made me feel calm and relaxed the day of surgery. The results are amazing. Dr. Sieber understands a woman’s body and totally changed the shape of mine. I could not recommend him highly enough. I now go to him for my Botox and Juvederm.*

Dr. Sieber was fantastic throughout the entire process. From the beginning, he was patient with my questions and never made me feel pressured about making a decision. Once deciding that I was going to move forward with a breast augmentation, he made sure that I understood the process of the procedure and what I could expect post-surgery. I could not be happier with the results!*

Dr. Sieber is the best. I interviewed with numerous doctors. He pays close attention to detail. He called and checked on me and my results on a regular basis. My tummy procedure exceeded my expectation.*

Dr Sieber was very kind, knowledgeable and patient. He was able to answer all of my questions and put me completely at ease during the consultation as well as during the actual procedure. He made sure that I understood each part of the process which went a long way in alleviating my fears…after all, this is my face!*

Dr. Dave Sieber and his staff are so awesome! Dr. Sieber is personable yet professional, his work is impeccable. He listens to his patient and works with them to achieve what they want. He’s like my hair dresser, a magician, you just want to do a happy dance with the results, only these results are lasting. Ok, but seriously, the procedure was very smooth, the staff and the doctors (Dr Sieber and the anesthesiologist) had great communication and made sure I was comfortable with very clear and concise pre op and post op directions. The healing process was very easy and the results are FABULOUS. Side note, Dr. Sieber has really awesome skin, I feel like this is impressive and important because really, would you trust a dentist with bad teeth? I am so elated and satisfied with the results, the size is perfect and they look and feel very natural. They are exactly what I wanted.*

Dr. Sieber is a doctor who is not only extremely knowledgeable about the latest in cosmetic procedures, but a doctor who truly cares about his patients. I highly recommend him!*

Dr. Sieber is attentive, responsive, and well trained. I had seen him for Botox and filler and he had done both without any pain or bruising and more importantly the results were fabulous. He has met with me on time at each appointment. He communicates what to expect, made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure, checked on my healing every day post procedure. He couldn’t be more delightful not more talented. I had seen other plastic surgeons for in office treatments over the past decade and Dr. Sieber is at the top of the list in terms of delivering the desired outcome and high quality care.*
