BBL Acne Treatments
What are BBL Acne Treatments?
Forever Clear BBL™ (Broadband Light™ therapy) is an innovative technology that utilizes pulsed light energy to target acne-causing bacteria on the surface of the skin and in the sebaceous gland. Our BBL acne treatments are a safer, more effective alternative to treat acne than traditional oral medications such as antibiotics and Accutane. The result of our BBL acne treatments are a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance.
What Symptoms Can BBL Acne Treatments Improve?
- Acne Scars
- Oily Skin
- Enlarged Pores
What are the Treatment Areas?
Any area of your body can be treated, but the most popular treatment locations include the face, neck, chest, and back.
What Does the Treatment Feel Like?
The procedure is gentle, non-invasive, and safe.You may briefly feel a warm or light “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted area. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, but our skin experts may choose to use it on more sensitive areas.
How Long Does One Treatment Take?
One treatment typically takes 20-45 minutes, depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed. Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses.
How Many Treatments are Recommended?
Our skin experts will work with you to personalize a treatment plan based on your skin needs and the level of improvement you desire. Initially, we recommend a series of treatments, followed by maintenance treatments. Our experts may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further enhance the outcome.
What Should I Expect After the Treatment? How Long Will it Take to Recover?
This is a non-invasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of your activities immediately. You may experience some redness, but that should resolve within a few hours. Often your treated skin will feel smoother, pores will begin to be less noticeable, and the appearance of acne will slowly decrease. Results depend on your skin’s condition, the number of treatments and the area treated.
What Aftercare Do I Need?
It is important to follow our expert’s aftercare instructions. Proper skin care products will be recommended based on your unique needs. If you must go outdoors, it is recommended that you cover your treated skin and use sunblock of at least SPF 30.
Am I a Candidate?
Most clients are able to get the HydraFacial treatment, however, an active tan from the sun or tanning beds is not appropriate for treating with BBL. It is recommended to avoid sun exposure in the area to be treated for a period of 3 weeks prior to treatment with BBL. Self-tanning lotion must be faded from the skin for at least 7 to 10 days prior to treatment.
