What is Forever Clear BBL™?
Forever Clear BBL™ offers a safer, more effective alternative to oral medications such as antibiotics and Accutane to treat acne. Forever Clear BBL™ is an innovative technology that utilizes light therapy to target acne. Broadband Light (BBL™) utilizes pulsed light energy to target acne-causing bacteria on the surface of the skin and in the sebaceous gland. The result of Forever Clear BBL™ is a rejuvenated appearance.
What symptoms can Forever Clear BBL™ improve?
- Acne Scars
- Oily Skin
- Enlarged Pores
What does the treatment feel like?
The procedure is gentle, noninvasive and safe. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic but your clinician may choose to use it on more sensitive areas. Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a warm or light “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to a half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed.
What areas can be treated with Forever Clear BBL™?
Any area of your body can be treated. The most popular treatment locations include the face, neck, chest, and back.
How long does one treatment take?
Depending on what area of the body is treated, one treatment takes 20-45 minutes.
How many treatments are recommended?
The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient and your clinician will personalize a treatment plan based on your skin and the level of improvement you desire. A series of treatments will be recommended initially, followed by maintenance treatments. Your clinician may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further enhance the outcome.
Can tanned skin be treated?
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.
What should I expect after the treatment?
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. Often your treated skin will feel smoother, pores 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.
How long will it take to recover?
This is a noninvasive 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.
What aftercare do I need?
It is important to follow your clinician’s aftercare instructions. Proper skin care products will be recommended based on the skin treated. If you must go outdoors, it is recommended that you cover your treated skin and use sunblock of at least SPF 30.
