Almost everyone struggles with uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, under-eye bags, dryness, or wrinkles. Imagine getting up every day having to make a minimum effort to tackle these.
What Is BB Glow Then?
BB Glow is the latest cosmetic trend for flawless skin. BB Glow has derived its name from BB creams which stand for blemish balm, beauty balm and so on. These creams were designed to serve as foundation, moisturizer and sunscreen. BB Glow is a semi-permanent skin foundation which substitutes the need of using foundation creams on an everyday basis. The BB serum contains anti-aging ingredients, antioxidants, and vitamins, which are safely applied into the uppermost layer of the skin using a special Derma Pen with nano needling technology, making the skin looks naturally better immediately and for a long time.

Who Is Candidate For BB Glow Treatment?
The BB Glow treatment is suitable for any type of skin such as normal, dry, oily, , sun-damaged or pigmented skin. It is suitable for both men and women irrespective their age or skin type. The BB Glow serum ampoules come in five different shades to accommodate any type of skin tones.
What about the Safety?
BB Glow treatment is 100% safe even in long-term, if high-quality materials and sterile tools are used and treatment is delivered by a trained professional. The micro needling nano technology prevents needles to go deep into the skin. The procedure is comfortable, however, some tingling and tightness in the skin can be felt. Furthermore, the BB serums are free of alcohol, allergens, fragrances, formaldehyde, parabens, mineral oils, or synthetic coloring.
Possible side effects very rare and minor, however, these may include pain, redness, pinpoint bleeding and temporary hyperpigmentation or infection.

What Is the Application Procedure?
Each application takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the skin type of a client. A consultation is necessary to select the closest shade of BB glow. Usually, two to three BB glow serums are mixed together to customize for each client.
The BB Glow serum is nano-needled into the top layer of the skin with a specially developed Derma Pen. The speed and depth of needles is adjusted according to the area of the skin that is being treated.
How Long Does It Last?
The effects of the treatment are individual and may vary from person to person, on the skin condition and a post treatment after care. Immediate results may be seen straight after the first procedure. However, the BB serum has a cumulative effect which means that it builds up under the skin with every single treatment. Therefore, a number of 4 to 6 treatments at 10 to 14 days intervals are recommended to achieve the best long-lasting results possible.
Expected lasting effect
2 to 3 applications = lasting up to 1 to 2 months
4 to 6 applications = lasting up to 6 months
