What is BBL Acne Treatment?

The BBL acne treatment uses a powerful Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) device, which uses a blue BBL light and a yellow BBL light to create light energy. This pulsed light energy targets acne-causing bacteria that live on the surface of the skin, as well as the sebaceous glands that are known for causing acne and other skin disorders. The pulsed light’s energy also stimulates and regenerates the skin cells, making it one of the most versatile laser treatments in cosmetics. The Forever Clear BBL treatment by Sciton can be used to improve skin imperfections in both men and women.

  3. Step 3:The final step of the forever clear treatment involves using INFRARED light to go over the treatment area. The infrared light emits gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process, thus ensuring minimal patient downtime.

Aside from using light in this cutting-edge acne treatment, many other factors are worth mentioning. You will wear a special shield with a red filter lens when undergoing light treatment. Most patients report feeling a warm sensation as the light from the laser is absorbed into the skin cells. However, this is a typically gentle, safe treatment.

From start to finish, the procedure should take no more than half an hour, but this depends on the size of the treatment area. The practitioner may apply a topical anesthetic cream if sensitive areas are being treated.
