Acne Treatment

Claim Victory Over Your Acne

Dealing with difficult acne? Looking for an alternative to accutane and other harsh acne treatments? Forever Clear BBL ™ may be the answer. The BBL ™ is a cutting edge acne treatment that uses powerful broad band light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without any topicals or medication. BBL is the world's most powerful IPL (Intense Pulse Light) device that delivers light energy deep into the skin to help stimulate collagen and reduce acne, leaving the skin radiant.

The Sciton Forever Clear BBL ™ uses a combination of blue, yellow, and infra-red light to eliminate bacteria, reduce inflammation, and promote the natural healing process.

What are the advantages of Blue Light Therapy for acne?

Blue light therapy helps manage acne because blue light rays help destroy the P. acnes bacterium responsible for producing acne.  Blue light also has an anti-inflammatory effect on keratinocytes, the most common cells in the outer layer of the skin.

Blue light therapy offers some benefits over alternative acne treatments for the following reasons.

  • It is safe as long as a trained practitioner administers it.
  • It is unlikely to produce long-term complications.
  • It does not involve antibiotics or other drugs.
  • It is appropriate for all areas of the body.
  • It is suitable for use with most other acne therapies.
  • It does not cause scarring.

Who is the ideal candidate?

Forever Clear BBL can be the right treatment for anyone experiencing active acne. All of the providers at Radiant Esthetics will consult with you before any treatments to identify if you are a candidate.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

Any area of the body can be treated. Most commonly, patients treat their face, neck, or back.

How Long Does the Treatment Take?

The treatment is relatively fast, it can take as little as 15 minutes depending on the area that is being treated. When doing a larger area on the body, patients can expect the treatment to take 30 minutes.

Does the treatment hurt?

The BBL ™ is a gentle and non-invasive laser. Generally, there is no need for topical anesthetic, however we may recommend it based on patients discomfort levels.

How Many Treatments Will I need?

Most patients see improvement in just one treatment, however we recommend 4-6 treatments in total. This will vary patient to patient and the providers at Radiant Esthetics will create a personalized plan for you.

What is the recovery time?

With the BBL ™ there is typically no downtime, however it is very important in the weeks following your treatment that you protect yourself against the sun. Most patients can wear makeup, skincare products, and resume normal activity shortly after.
