What is a BB Glow Treatment?
Semi-permanent BB cream is exactly what it sounds like – a layer of BB cream is injected into your skin to give you a natural looking base that lasts for a period of time. This treatment promises to provide your skin with light to medium coverage to hide your blemishes, redness and dark eye circles.
A BB Glow Treatment is a safe and intensive skin treatments that can assist in reduction of the appearance of freckles and lightening of your skin. It also helps with skin discoloration caused by acne and photo-aging or age spots.
How does it work ?
In order to prepare the skin for deep penetration of BB cream, an exfoliating cream might use to remove dead skin cells. After penetration, BB cream ampoules injected into the skin will blend and adjust to your skin tone.
After applying a thin layer of BB cream ampoule over your face with a brush, the medical esthetician rolled the microneedle device over your face repeatedly, depending on the sensitivity of your skin and target area. Delicate areas such as the nose and eyes needed more coverage as these areas had more uneven edges and skin problems, notably redness and dark eye circles. The medical esthetician carefully rolled the microneedle device over these areas a few more times in order to take care of these concerns.
How does skin change post the treatment?
The treatment starts by restoring even skin tone and a radiant complexion – a great way to get an instant and gradual lightening effect. As it reduces melanin content in the skin, there is lesser skin discoloration too.
Post-treatment, expect some mild redness that typically lasts for a day or so. Some peeling around the nose and mouth, particularly for those with dehydrated skin, may also occur.
How many sessions would be needed and how long does the treatment last?
Ranging from a few to multiple sessions, treatments at different aestheticians vary. In most cases, the effect can be seen soon enough and this is why the BB Glow treatment is a great option for events and special occasions. Bride to be? This could be a great option to get that all glowing look!
The effect would only last for a few days to a week if you are a first timer. More maintenance would have to be done (2 or 3 times), and the effect would be more pronounced and longer lasting. Then, it would last up to 4-8 months.
Are there any side effects?
Apart from sensitive skin types, you would only require one day worth of downtime and you can put on makeup immediately. Sensitive skin would require up to 3-7 days of downtime.
