Plaza Aesthetics now offers the BBL™ Forever Clear treatment for acne. This FDA-approved treatment has a clinically-proven ability to remove acne. The treatment uses pulse infrared and visible light energy to prime the upper layers of the skin for the increased production of collagen, which is a structural protein that the body uses for wound repair, including acne marks.
The benefits of FOREVER BBL™ Forever Clear treatment include:
- Clear skin
- Targeted treatments
- Long lasting removal of acne
Clients are encouraged to visit us to receive a consultation from one of our skin care professionals.
Types of Acne
Acne can be classified as minor, moderate, or severe. Mild acne is characterized by few and minor breakouts that can be treated with over-the-counter acne products.
Moderate acne, however, is more noticeable. Clients may have bumpy skin, blackheads, and regularly inflamed papules and pustules. Over-the-counter products may not be very effective for this type of acne and clients may need prescription medication.
Severe acne is characterized by inflammation, with large, red, and swollen blemishes. Clients will need to visit a skin care professional for personalized treatment.
Acne vulgaris can form on the face, back, shoulders, and buttocks. This form of acne can begin mild but progress into more severe forms.
Comedonal acne is a subcategory of acne vulgaris. Instead of inflamed pimples, clients will have bumpiness, blackheads, and milia.
Cystic acne is the most severe form of acne vulgaris that can occur anywhere on the face or body. Clients will have significant inflammation and large, painful blemishes (or cysts).
Nodular acne is characterized by large and hard breakouts, and deep blemishes called nodules.
Patients with acne rosacea may have bumpiness and pimples, in addition to a red, flushed face, and tiny blood vessels on the nose and cheeks.
A New Approach To Acne Treatment
BBL™ Forever Clear is a cutting-edge acne treatment that harnesses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without the use of creams or medicine. BBL™ is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device delivering light energy deep into the skin to stimulate and regenerate the patient’s skin cells, leaving them with clear, healthy, and radiant skin.
How Effective Is BBL™ at Treating Acne?
With proper treatment, BBL™ therapy will lead to what cosmetic professionals refer to as collagen remodeling, which treats overactive oil glands and reduces acne. Treatment can also improve the appearance of acne scars in a non-ablative way.
The device will stimulate the treated area, which in turn triggers the body’s natural production of collagen. Treatment can rejuvenate the skin, leaving it tighter, thicker, smoother, and most importantly, acne-free.
Potential Side Effects
The BBL™ Forever Clear treatment may produce mild symptoms, which usually disappear in a few hours for most clients. These symptoms typically include:
- Mild sunburn-like sensation on the face
- Temporary darkening of pigmented lesions
- Mild facial irritation
