How Does Forever Clear BBL® Work?
Forever Clear BBL® is an advanced acne treatment that utilizes BroadBand Light (BBL) technology to address various aspects of acne and improve overall skin health. Here’s how it works:
- Targeting Bacteria: The treatment starts by using blue BBL light, which is absorbed by the bacteria responsible for acne (Propionibacterium acnes or P. acnes). The light energy activates a chemical within the bacteria, ultimately destroying it. This reduces the number of acne-causing bacteria on the skin’s surface.
- Reducing Inflammation: A key component of acne is inflammation. Forever Clear BBL® incorporates yellow BBL light, which is absorbed by the blood vessels in the skin. This light energy heats the blood vessels, reducing the redness and inflammation associated with acne breakouts.
- Promoting Collagen Production: As part of the treatment, infrared light is used to penetrate deeper layers of the skin. This stimulates collagen production, which is essential for skin repair and regeneration. Increased collagen helps improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of scars, and promote overall skin health.
- Customized Treatment: Forever Clear BBL® is a customizable treatment. Your healthcare provider will adjust the settings and treatment approach based on your specific skin concerns and needs. This personalized approach ensures that the treatment is tailored to your skin type and the severity of your acne.
- Multiple Sessions: Typically, a series of Forever Clear BBL® sessions are recommended to achieve optimal results. These sessions are usually spaced a few weeks apart to allow the skin to heal and regenerate between treatments.
The Science Behind Broadband Light (BBL):
BBL delivers pulses of light energy that gently heat the upper layers of the skin, targeting fine, broken vessels, redness, brown spots, and pigmented lesions. This process eliminates these targets from the skin, restoring its natural beauty, blending tones, and enhancing its vibrancy and youthful appearance.
