Forever Clear BBL™ is an innovative 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 broadband light technology that delivers light energy deep into the skin to stimulate and regenerate skin cells, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.BOOK A COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATIONBOOK A COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION
The procedure is gentle, non-invasive, and safe. We suggest booking a complimentary consultation to recommend the best options and to ensure that Forever Clear BBL™ is a fit for you.
Before treatment, a cold gel is applied to the areas to be treated (if desired, an anesthetic cream can also be applied 45 minutes prior to your treatment to minimize any discomfort). During treatment, your aesthetician will gently apply the smooth, glass surface of the handpiece to the skin, delivering light to the skin surface in precise pulses across the treatment area.
Forever Clear BBL™ is a safe, effective approach to younger-looking skin. The machine is equipped with advanced cooling features and there should be minimal or no discomfort, however, this varies from patient to patient and depends on the depth of the treatment (patients often describe a slight stinging sensation, like the snapping of a rubber band, in the treated areas). An anesthetic cream (applied 45 minutes prior to your treatment) may be used if so desired to minimize any treatment-associated discomfort.
IPL (intense pulsed light) offers a single flash of light to the skin and is typically complete with one pass over the skin. BBL (broadband light) offers a dual flash of light and at North Medical Spa, we pass over the face 3-4 times. The treatment delivers impeccable results compared to IPL.
Your procedure time will vary depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of the procedure performed (some areas may only take a few minutes and others a half hour). We always allot 15 minutes after the treatment for post-care discussion and check-in.
Forever Clear BBL™ treatments are designed to provide little downtime. The treated area may appear red or flushed, which usually fades within a few hours. Individuals with prominent pigmentation may notice that brown areas become temporarily darker, followed by light scabbing and skin peeling in 10-14 days.
With Chemical Peels or Hydrafacials between Forever Clear BBL™ sessions, recovery may be enhanced and results may be improved. Rarely, some individuals develop “purpura” or bruising. Although uncommon, this sometimes occurs in individuals with a very prominent red component. This is painless and typically fades in about 5-10 days. Individuals with prominent brown or red colour may also develop slight temporary swelling for a few days, especially if being treated around the eyes.
Any bruising may be covered with makeup, and makeup may be applied immediately after your treatment so you can return to your daily activities.
With the Forever Clear BBL™ treatment, we will create a personalized treatment plan based on your needs and desired outcome. We recommend 5 treatments at 1-2 week intervals to produce the desired results. You may benefit from additional treatments depending on the severity of your condition and as maintenance, although the number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient.
We recommend coming in for a Forever Clear BBL treatment every 4-6 weeks for beautiful and consistent results (this is where our Packages really come in handy!).
