We buy lotions, serums and creams, try facials, scrubs and peels. Why? We want our skin to look radiant and glowing, but more importantly, to age more slowly and look younger. No one likes the wrinkles, brown spots, broken capillaries and other signs that mark the passage of the years and actually evidence of less healthy, more damaged skin. To keep your body healthy year after year you eat and sleep well, do some exercise or physical activity, brush and get your teeth cleaned. Your skin is a critical part of your body - if you are not doing 2-4 medical interventions a year, it will not age the way skin does where there is a research-based plan the same way that you maintain the health of the rest of your body.

Research out of Stanford University shows that when using the right technology (BBL) and specific protocols developed by Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr. (with whom the entire staff of Tahoe Aesthetic Medicine have completed small-group preceptorships) BBL treatments not only slow skin aging, but when patients did 2-4 treatments per year over 10 years, at the end of the study period, they looked younger than when they started. If you started at age 50, on average when you hit your 60th birthday, you looked 48. This isn’t just in pictures. The skin was healthier on biopsy, with more collagen, less inflammation and damage and the genes which are turned on when we’re young getting turned back on. Early studies are showing decreased rates of skin cancer as well.

We offer Forever Young BBL as a stand-alone treatment, but also often combine it with the latest in additional laser technologies to address the specific skin concerns which you might want to change and accelerate improvement in skin texture, pores, fine lines, wrinkles and eyelid crepiness. Call 775-298-1750 or contact us at office@tahoeaestheticmedicine.com and schedule a consultation with Dr. Gelber to design your ideal treatments and a maintenance plan to help you have the skin you’ve always wanted - you could have better skin next year, or even a decade from now than you do today!
