Forever Clear BBL
Lighting Your Way to Clearer Skin
For many of us growing up, we were told acne was just a phase, that we would outgrow it. For many people, this simply didn’t end up being true. As an adult, acne can be embarrassing, making us feel self-conscious. No matter what age you are, though, it’s never too late to address concerns over acne.
You may have tried medications and various over-the-counter products with limited success. Some treatment options carry side effects as well. All of this can be a thing of the past, though, thanks to Sciton’s Forever Clear BBL!
At Dr. Robert Bowen in Martinsburg, we have seen many patients who have dealt with acne most of their life and want to put an end to it. We specialize in Sciton’s treatment options and have seen brilliant success with the Forever Clear BBL treatment. What makes it special is the unique way this treatment uses light energy to penetrate down to the source of acne, bacteria down in the skin.
How it Works
The treatment uses pulsed light of specific wavelengths (420 nm, 560 nm, 590 nm) to treat acne.
The 420 nm filter (blue light) leads to the selective destruction of the P. acnes bacteria.
The 560 nm filter (yellow light) is effective in treating mild to moderate inflammatory acne lesions.
Finally, the addition of the 590 nm filter (red light) is effective in heating the sebaceous oil glands to aid in minimizing oil production.
You must be off Accutane for at least 6 months before having this treatment.
30 to 60 minutes
Recovery & Downtime
With Forever Clear BBL treatment, a mild sunburn-like sensation is to be expected after treatment, and lasts from 2 to 24 hours. It is not unusual to get an initial flare-up of acne after the first and second treatments. You can apply makeup after treatment if you wish, as the surface of the skin is not disrupted by this treatment. You should protect your skin from the sun to avoid complications.
