What is Forever Clear BBL™?
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 stimulate and regenerate your skin cells, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.
We first treat the skin to eliminate acne-causing bacteria at its source, deep down in the pores. If required, we would perform a second step in the treatment process and treat the skin to reduce the inflammation and acne-associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin. For added benefit, the skin is then treated with Forever Young BBL™ in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process.

What Areas Can I Treat with Forever Clear BBL™?
Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. The most popular treatments are for the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.
How Many Sessions/ Treatments are Required with Forever Clear BBL™?
From 3 to 5 treatments, at 2-4 week intervals will produce the desired results. You may benefit from additional treatments depending on the severity of your condition. Although, the number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient. With the Forever Clear BBL™ treatment, we will create a personalized treatment plan based on your needs and desired outcome.
What is the Procedure Like?
The procedure is gentle, non-invasive, and safe. There should be minimal or no discomfort, however, this varies from patient to patient and depends on the depth of the treatment. An anesthetic cream applied 45 minutes prior to your treatment, may be used if so desired to minimize any treatment associated discomfort. We will recommend the best options during the consultation.
Before treatment, a cold gel is usually applied to the areas to be treated, and patients wear protective eyewear. During treatment, our aesthetician gently applies the smooth, glass surface of the Forever Clear BBL™ handpiece to the skin. Light is delivered to the skin surface in precise pulses across the treatment area. Patients often describe a slight stinging sensation, like the snapping of a rubber band, in the treated areas. Most individuals find this to be very tolerable. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of the procedure performed.
When Can I Return to Work/ Normal Activities After My Forever Clear BBL™ Treatment?
Forever Clear BBL™ treatments are designed to provide little downtime. The treated area may appear red or flushed, which usually fades within a few hours. Individuals with prominent pigmentation may notice that brown areas become temporarily darker, lightly scabbing, and peeling off in 10-14 days. Makeup may be applied immediately after your treatment so you can return to your daily activities. By performing Chemical Peels or HydraFacials between Forever Clear BBL™ sessions, recovery may be enhanced and results may be improved. Rarely, some individuals develop “purpura” or bruising. Although uncommon, this sometimes occurs in individuals with a very prominent red component. This is painless and typically fades in about 5-10 days. Any bruising may be covered with makeup. Individuals with prominent brown or red colour may develop slight temporary swelling for a few days, especially if being treated around the eyes.
Is Forever Clear BBL™ Safe?
The machine is equipped with advanced cooling features, allowing the use of high-powered energy with minimal discomfort. Numbing cream can be administered on individuals who find the treatment uncomfortable, but it’s typically unnecessary. Forever Clear BBL™ is a safe, effective approach to younger looking skin.
