BB Glow facial is a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment that adds a tinted pigment and nutrients to your skin to achieve a “glass skin” effect. It uses a combination of peptides, antioxidants, and amino acids. What makes the procedure so effective is the application technique. Instead of applying the products to the surface of the skin, they are inserted into the skin layers with a microneedle.
It takes a few sessions before the BB Glow facial can turn into semi-permanent makeup, as long as you commit to it.
Different shades are available to suit unique skin tones:
After you consult with Dr Shens, your skin will be cleaned and prepped for the procedure. Excess skin will be removed with Dermaplane. A booster serum will be applied to your skin and enhanced with a microneedling pen.
Next, the doctor will select a BB glow serum that matches your skin tone and using the microneedling pen, they will infuse it into your skin. All the right places will be covered. He will finish off by applying a hydrating mask and a LED mask. Their purpose is to accelerate the absorption of the products.
In the end, the treated skin will be slathered with a peptide repair cream that has soothing properties.
Overall, the procedure takes one hour, inclusive of skin preparation time. Multiple visits to our office are needed for optimal results. It is recommended that you have 4 sessions spaced two weeks apart to get the desired outcome. The results can last 4 months after which you will need maintenance appointments.
There is no downtime and you are free to resume your normal activities. Do not wash your face for 24 hours post-treatment. Avoid putting on makeup for 3 days straight.
