What is ForeverClear™ BBL®
Forever Clear BroadBand Light (BBL) is a non-invasive, cosmetic skin treatment that uses intense pulsed light to clear acne and prevent future breakouts through a three step process. It uses three types of light, blue, yellow, and infrared to kill the bacteria that causes breakouts, reduce inflammation, and prevents future outbreaks of acne. It is a natural way to use energy to heal acne without the use of harsh topicals, medicines, and antibiotics.
Forever Clear BBL is a quick and comfortable procedure that does not require any downtime or recovery period. This FDA-approved light therapy trigger’s your body’s natural healing abilities to regenerate cells leaving your skin looking clearer, healthier, and more vibrant. Your confidence will be restored with your refreshed and revitalized appearance of your skin. It is important to note that results from Forever Clear BBL vary based on the individual and the severity of his or her skin concerns. Treatments are cumulative in terms of benefits. Your provider can give you a better idea of what you can expect from the treatment and the number of treatments required based on your specific needs and goals.

What to do before a Forever Clear BBL treatment?
Before undergoing a Forever Clear BBL treatment, it is recommended to schedule a consultation with your provider to discuss your skin concerns and determine if Forever Clear BBL is the right treatment for you. To prepare for the treatment, it is important to avoid sun exposure and use a high-SPF sunscreen in the weeks leading up to your appointment to reduce the risk of sunburn. If you are taking antibiotics, it is important to have no longer taken them seven days prior to your treatment and the same is true of topical Retin A prescriptions. In addition, your provider may advise you to avoid using certain skin products, such as over-the-counter retinoids or alpha hydroxy acids, a few days leading to the treatment. If you are having the treatment performed on your face, neck, arms, or legs, make sure to shave the treatment area before your appointment. On the day of your appointment, it is recommended to wear loose, comfortable clothing in order to easily access the desired treatment area. A coverup may be provided to ensure discretion during the treatment. It is important to discuss any questions or concerns that you may have about preparing for your Forever Clear BBL treatment with your provider to ensure a safe and effective experience.
What should I expect after Forever Clear BBL treatment?
After a Forever Clear BBL treatment, you can expect some temporary redness and occasionally minor swelling of the treatment area, which is a normal response to the treatment. These symptoms usually resolve within a few hours. Your provider will advise you to avoid direct sun exposure if your skin is unprotected but to ideally use sunscreen daily. You can typically resume normal activities immediately after the treatment, but it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise and to avoid hot showers and saunas for 24 hours. It is important to follow your provider’s aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results and to minimize the risk of any adverse effects. Your provider may also schedule a follow-up appointment to assess the results of your treatment and to discuss any additional treatments, if necessary.
What are the results of Forever Clear BBL?
The results of Forever Clear BBL treatment can vary from person to person, but many people report a noticeable improvement in the appearance of their skin after just one treatment. BBL targets a wide range of skin concerns in addition to acne, including sun damage, age spots, freckles, rosacea, acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity, leaving the skin looking clearer, brighter, and more youthful. The results of Forever Clear BBL treatment are typically long-lasting, but the longevity of the results can depend on a number of factors, such as skin type, age, and lifestyle. To maintain the results of your treatment, it is important to protect your skin from sun damage and to follow the skin care routine recommended by your provider. In most cases, multiple treatments are necessary to achieve desired results, and touch-up treatments may be recommended to maintain the results over time. Your provider can advise you on the best treatment plan for your individual needs and goals.
