How Forever Clear BBL Works

The shorter wavelengths of BBL, in the blue-light spectrum, attack p-acne bacteria on the surface and in the sebaceous gland. Along with a home skin care program designed for acne-prone skin, you can experience significant long-term clearance.

S T E P 1

We first use BLUE BBL light that eliminates acne-causing bacteria at its source

S T E P 2

Then YELLOW BBL light is used to reduce inflammation and redness. This gives the skin a healthy, luminous appearance.

The last step incorporates SkinTyte using INFRA-RED, which begins the healing process.

What Causes Acne?

Acne occurs when hair follicle pores are blocked by natural components of the skin. This is the root of most acne lesions. Once blocked, inflammation and bacteria overgrowth occur leading to red bumps and cysts in the skin. Sebaceous or sweat glands of the skin can contribute excessive amounts of sebum into the plugged follicle increasing inflammation.  Hormones can also play a role. Most teenagers are affected to some degree. Adults, often, get acne for the first time while others have suffered since the teenage years.

Acne is not life-threatening, but it can cause physical disfigurement (scarring) and emotional distress if not treated early.
