Acne breakouts are triggered when pores get clogged by debris, such as dead skin cells, excess sebum, makeup and pollution. If left untreated, acne can cause both physical and emotional scarring.
WHAT IT DOES
Forever Clear BBL™ is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine. BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device, delivering light energy deep into the skin to help treat acne, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.
HOW IT WORKS
Forever Clear BBL™ treats acne deep within the skin. Intense Pulsed Light of this magnitude can only be found in a doctor’s office. First, skin is treated with blue BBL™ light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria at its source, deep down in the pores. Next, the skin is treated with yellow BBL™ light to reduce the inflammation and acne-associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin. For added benefit, the skin is then treated with infrared light in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process.
WHAT TO EXPECT
HOW IT FEELS
This laser acne treatment begins after a thin layer of gel is applied to your skin. Most patients report minimal discomfort during this treatment.
This treatment can take as little as 15 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Treatment time varies from patient to patient.
There is typically no downtime associated with this treatment. Most patients can wear make-up and resume normal activities immediately. You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours after the treatment. Once the skin is healed, typically about one week after the treatment, your treated skin will look clearer and pores will become less noticeable. You will be provided with an aftercare plan to follow that will involve avoiding direct sun exposure and using sunscreen.
You can expect to see an improvement after just one treatment, however treatment frequency varies depending on the type and severity of your acne concerns. To achieve optimal results, a series of 8 weekly treatments is typically recommended in addition to touch-up treatments every 6 months.
