How does BBL Light Work?

When you schedule our cosmetic surgeon at Austin Face & Body, they will first examine the skin on your face, hands, and neck, assessing the level and type of treatment you need. We personalize all of our treatments to your specific needs.

During the procedure, your doctor will ask you to wear safety shields or glasses to protect your eyes. The doctor will use the BBL Light device to deliver quick bursts of light energy into your skin. As the device moves over your body, you’ll feel a warm sensation. As the light energy seeps into your skin, it will trigger your body’s natural healing and regeneration process.

The procedure’s total duration will depend on your specific skin conditions, ranging from as little as 5 minutes to over 30 minutes. BBL light is a non-invasive procedure, and you’ll feel minimal discomfort. The cosmetic surgeon may choose to apply an anesthetic ointment for further comfort, but it’s not necessary.

What is Recovery Like from BBL Light Therapy?

The BBL Light therapy will induce some redness, which will gradually dissipate in a few hours. Some of your sunspots and skin conditions will darken and seem to get worse, but they’ll soon flake off. Your cosmetic surgeon will also discuss post-operative care and prescribe topical ointments.

How does Forever Clear BBL work for acne?

Forever Clear BBL treats acne in a simple, yet powerful way. It emits blue, yellow, and infrared light energy to clear active acne and scars. When the light energy reaches the deep layers of your skin, it stimulates your regenerative skin cells. They then begin producing collagen, which the body uses to repair wounds – including acne marks. In addition, the technology:

  • Targets p. acnes bacteria on the skin – the bacteria that causes acne
  • Minimizes redness from active, inflammatory acne
  • Lightens acne scars

The results: Clear and healthy skin

Most of our Austin patients see an improvement in their acne after just one treatment, with clearer and more even skin. Maximum results can often be obtained within a series of four treatments, spaced one week apart. Moving forward, we typically recommend touch-up appointments every couple of months, depending on the type of acne present and its severity.  

Am I a candidate?

The best candidates for this treatment are Austin men and women who suffer from mild to moderate inflammatory and pustular inflammatory acne. It is an appropriate solution for both adults and teens, and is a terrific alternative to creams and medication.
