What It Is
Have you tried countless home remedies and clinical procedures in order to get your acne under control but with no luck? For those patients suffering from stubborn inflammatory acne, we are pleased to offer Forever Clear BBL™—a revolutionary laser acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne when other options have failed.
Forever Clear BBL™ is a cutting-edge three-step treatment that can effectively clear even the most stubborn of acne without the use of creams or medicine. This skincare treatment option utilizes BroadBand Light to target active acne, cystic acne, and the red or brown marks (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) that are left behind by acne breakouts.
Suitable for all ages, Forever Clear BBL™ will leave you with clear, healthy, and radiant skin.
Most areas of the body can be treated using Forever Clear BBL™ as it is a fast and safe treatment method. However, the most common treatment areas are generally where acne is typically found. This includes the face, back, and neck.
How to Prepare
In order to prepare for your Forever Clear BBL™, you should avoid extensive exposure to the sun for at least a month prior to treatment. Sunburned or tanned skin runs a higher risk of potential side effects such as permanent skin discolouration or severe blistering.
Additionally, you should stop any of the following for at least a week before and after your procedure in order to reduce the risk of bruising or trauma:
- Medications that contain aspirin or anti-inflammatories
- Strenuous exercise and contact sports
- Alcohol intake should be limited
The treatment is recommended for men and women of all ages who are experiencing active acne. In order to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for Forever Clear BBL™, please schedule a complimentary consultation with us.
How It Works
Forever Clear BBL™ is non-invasive, gentle, and safe. After a thin layer of gel is applied to your treatment area, the BBL™ treatment will begin. Your skin will feel warm throughout the duration of the procedure, however, it is not uncomfortable for many patients. A singular session may take 15-30 minutes depending on the area(s) being treated and the severity of the condition.
Forever Clear BBL™ uses a unique three-step process, not available with other IPL technologies. The steps are as follows:
The first step involved your skin being treated with blue BBL™ light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria in the pores.
Next, your skin is treated with yellow BBL™ light in order to reduce the inflammation and redness associated with acne. This will restore healthy luminous skin.
Finally, for added benefit, your skin is then treated with SkinTyte II™ using infrared light to initiate the body’s natural healing process.
Results You Can Expect
You can expect to see clearer skin, and your pores will be less noticeable. Acne marks will fade and your skin will be more even-toned. You may begin to see improvement after your first treatment, however, maximum results will occur when you follow the treatment protocol and use the recommended home care products.
We typically recommend a series of ten treatments spaced one week apart. At APT Medical Aesthetics, we have a treatment package available for your convenience. After completing your package, most patients will require periodic touch-ups that will vary between every month to every 6 months depending on the individual patient.
Every patient is different and so is their acne. How you will respond to the Forever Clear BBL™ treatment will depend on the severity and type of your acne. Our medical aestheticians will work with you to develop a treatment plan so that we can achieve your skin goals, leaving you feeling more confident than ever before.
Aftercare and Recovery
There is typically no downtime after Forever Clear BBL™. Your skin may be slightly red after the treatment, and this typically resolves within a few hours. You will be able to apply makeup and resume normal activities immediately following the procedure.
You may experience some slight redness and minimal swelling of the acne and the surrounding skin for a couple of days after your treatment. However, this is fairly common and you can expect the symptoms to fade on their own.
While seriously adverse reactions to the Forever Clear BBL™ procedure is fairly rare, there are some side effects that you should be aware of. Side effects that you may experience includes:
All potential complications and their severity will be discussed with you prior to your first treatment during your initial consultation with us. It is our main goal to ensure that every person who walks through our doors understands every aspect of the Forever Clear BBL™ treatment so that they can make an informed decision about what skincare procedures are right for them.
