How does Forever Clear BBL work?

BBL (BroadBand Light) therapy, an evolution of intense pulsed light (IPL), is a corrective phototherapy treatment. BBL is a highly advanced machine which uses broad-spectrum light energy that is adjusted and customized to penetrate and treat the layer of the skin in which the specific condition or issue lies.

In regards to acne, there are very specific elements in the skin that contribute to acne and pimples, and the BBL device targets these. Two of the primary contributors to active acne are sebum (oil) and bacteria. Cleansing the skin twice daily greatly helps to manage overactive sebum, but a direct way to target and kill the bacteria is with Forever Clear BBL.

BBL harnesses the colours of the light spectrum (the colours you see when you shine a light through a prism) to penetrate the skin at different levels. Our medical aestheticians have a thorough knowledge of laser and skin science to utilize this technology in such a way that they can target the exact depth of the skin where your skin concerns lie.

How is Forever Clear BBL performed?

In a Forever Clear BBl treatment, you will be lying down and your face will be thoroughly cleaned prior to treatment. To begin the treatment, a handheld device will then be gently pressed to your skin while a flash of light is applied to the area. This is repeated across the treatment area(s). This device targets areas of active acne and redness, and produces quick pulses of high-intensity light to target both acne-causing bacteria and the red pigment in spots.

This state-of-the-art machine is equipped with an advanced cooling feature, allowing the safe and effective use of high-powered energy in the process.

Once your treatment is complete, the appropriate medical-grade skin products will be applied to your treatment area for the very best post-procedure protection and care. This is customized to your skin and treatment to boost the effects of the treatment and ensure optimal results.

What should I expect with Forever Clear BBL?

Forever Clear BBL treatments are relatively quick, with little pain or discomfort and no downtime. You can expect some light redness in the treated area, which will only last a short time—sometimes only a matter of hours. How to care for and protect your skin post-treatment will be discussed with you prior to treatment, and your treatment provider will be available to answer any questions you have after you leave.You will begin to see lighter and clearer skin within a month or two, as your skin cells turn over every 30-40 days (depending on your age). As acne has a number of contributing factors, it is difficult to give an exact timeline and degree of results. The reduced bacteria due to the BBL treatment, combined with regular cleansing and other lifestyle factors can mean quite significant changes in your skin and the level of acne. Your treatment provider will be able to discuss what you can do to achieve the optimal results from your Forever Clear treatment.

I have seen Suzanne for different laser treatments over the years and she is excellent. I always get noticeable results. Suzanne completely cleared sun damage on my chest with two BBL treatments. I have been to other laser clinics with no improvement. Suzanne is very knowledgeable and talented.
