WHAT IS BB GLOW TREATMENT?
BB Glow is better described as semi-permanent foundation. Basically, the look you see when you put on BB cream is what this BB Glow Facial promises. The process is quite simple. It involves micro needling a pigmented vitamin serum into the skin. The pigment results in a glow that comes through the top layers of the skin, similar to what BB cream does on top of the skin.
The results are natural and subtle. Most people who receive this treatment report they are usually the only ones who notice. The comments they receive from others are more like, “You seem to be glowing lately!” or “You’re makeup is gorgeous.”
The results last as long as a year, but some people start to see a decrease in appearance of the serum after about 6 months. Treatment consists of three sessions for optimal results.
What is important to know about the BB Glow Facial is that it does not change the colour of your skin. It simply places small pigments of colour into the skin to change the colour that is shown on the face. The actual skin is the same colour.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
To make clients more comfortable, we numb the face first. This takes about 20 minutes.
A micro-needling pen is then used on the face for about 45 minutes. Due to the face being numb, it is not a painful experience. Most clients simply lay back and relax, and some even fall asleep!
It’s important to only use an experienced aesthetician because the micro-needling must be performed evenly across the skin.
If not, the colour will not be even or worse, it could appear blotchy.
In addition to the micro-needling, a hyaluronic acid mask is placed on the face for 20 minutes. This ensures the serum seals into the skin.
After the mask, the process is done. Most clients are a bit surprised by the initial look because it seems as though they have a lot of foundation on their face. However, within a few hours, the serum absorbs into the skin and the true results shine through. After that you will experience nothing but a glowing, beautiful face that looks natural and radiant.
Everyone who wants to cover imperfections on their face uses BB Glow. Those with hyperpigmentation, rosacea, blemishes and dark undereye circles are especially excited about this new advancement.
Those with acne really love this treatment because it’s a great way to reduce the appearance of the blemishes on the skin without clogging pores. When the serum is placed, the skin absorbs it rather than it sitting on top of and inside the pores. It evens out the skin tone, so the redness of pimples is much less noticeable.
