THE HOTTEST BEAUTY TREND IN ASIA & EUROPE IS NOW HERE! What if I told you that there is a way to get naturally glowing and smoothed complexion without actually having to put on makeup? Semi-permanent BB cream is a layer of BB cream that is implanted into your skin to give you a natural looking base that will last 4 months to one year. This is perfect for people who love the whole: my skin but better look. This treatment will provide your skin with light to medium coverage to soften the appearance of blemishes, hyperpigmentation, freckles, rosacea, redness and lighten up those pesky dark under eye circles. The closest shade is selected or mixed to perfection and then penetrated under the skin using a micro-needling device. The skin may appear slightly pink afterwards.
WHAT IS A BB GLOW TREATMENT AND WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?
A BB Glow Treatment is a safe and intensive skin treatment that can assist in reduction of the appearance of freckles and aids in the lightening of your skin. It also helps with skin discoloration caused by acne, photo-aging or age spots.
Firstly, all traces of makeup will be removed with a double cleanse (if possible, try to come makeup free). In order to prepare the skin for deep penetration of BB serum, your skin will be exfoliated with a light microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells. After applying a thin layer of BB serum over your face, a micro-needling pen will be moved over your face to penetrate the BB serum into the skin. Delicate areas such as the nose and eyes might need more coverage as these areas typically have more uneven edges and skin problems, notably redness and dark eye circles. After penetration, the BB cream serum will blend and adjust to your skin tone.
HOW DOES BB glow SKIN CHANGE POST TREATMENT?
The BB glow treatment starts by restoring even skin tone and a radiant complexion – a great way to get an instant and gradual lightening effect. As it reduces melanin content in the skin, there is lesser skin discoloration too. Post-treatment, expect some mild redness that typically lasts for a day or so. Some peeling around the nose and mouth, particularly for those with dehydrated skin, may also occur.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NEEDED FOR BB glow AND HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT LAST?
Ranging from a couple to multiple sessions, treatments vary. In most cases, the effect can be seen soon enough (1 – 2 sessions) and this is why the BB Glow treatment is a great option for events and special occasions. Bride to be? This could be a great option to get that all glowing look! The effect might only last for a few days to a week if you are a first timer. More maintenance would have to be done (2 or 3 times), and the effect would be more pronounced and longer lasting. Then, it would last from 6 months up to one year. Treatments can be done every 2 weeks.
