Forever Clear Broadband Light (BBL™) is a treatment to clear your skin of inflammation and acne. It uses three types of light energy to minimize skin inflammation: blue, yellow, and infrared. Also called intense pulsed light, BBL delivers energy deep into your skin with no incisions or injections necessary.
BBL specifically targets and reduces activity in sebaceous glands, which produce oils in your skin. When they overproduce oils, and your pores become clogged, acne occurs. BBL treatments also treat acne by killing the bacteria that cause inflammation.
Dr. Bushore tells you what to expect ahead of any treatments for your skin, including the Forever Clear BBL acne treatment. You can also discuss other treatments to add to your custom care plan along with Forever Clear BBL.
Forever Clear BBL treats acne, but that isn’t its only benefit. Whether you’re a teenager or an adult experiencing an acne breakout, you can rely on Forever Clear BBL to clear the skin on your face, back, neck, or anywhere else.
Other benefits of Forever Clear include:
Dr. Bushore creates a customized treatment plan just for you, which might include multiple rounds of Forever Clear BBL treatment.
Visiting Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics for Forever Clear BBL treatments is quick and painless. During your visit, you can expect treatment with blue light first. Blue light is the most effective wavelength for killing the bacteria that inflame your acne.
Yellow broadband light is next and treats inflammation and redness associated with acne. Following the yellow light is an infrared light treatment using the SkinTyte® II, which stimulates healing and collagen growth deep in your skin.
After treatment, you can continue your day as usual. There may be some redness on your skin following the treatment, but it subsides as your skin heals.
