BBL – Forever Clear (Acne)
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 help treat acne, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.
How it works?
The Forever Clear BBL™ procedure utilizes blue, yellow, and infrared light energy to treat and improve acne along with the damage it has caused on the skin. Broad Band Light (BBL™) works by delivering light energy deep into the skin to target the sebaceous glands and remove acne-causing bacteria. The innovative Forever Clear BBL™ treatment is also designed to stimulate your skin cells to regenerate.
