Have you tried numerous methods to get acne under control? Now, drugs and other over the counter “remedies” can be a thing of the past. Why deal with the wait and potential side effects of those options when you can have clearer skin in typically just a few short treatments.
Forever Clear BBL is a cutting-edge 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 IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device delivering light energy deep into your skin to stimulate and regenerate your skin cells, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.
Forever Clear BBL uses a unique three-step process
Skin is first treated with BLUE BBL light to eliminate acne-causing
bacteria at its source, deep down in the pores.
Skin is then treated with YELLOW BBL light to reduce the inflammation and
acne-associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin.
For added benefit, the skin is then treated with SkinTyte II™ using INFRA-RED light in rapid,
gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process.
For added benefit, follow your personalized plan including add-on and follow-up treatments,
as well as a skincare regimen to keep your skin lasting clear.
