Forever Clear BBL™ - IPL Fotofacial in Tampa

Drugs and other over-the-counter “remedies” can be a thing of the past. Why deal with the wait and potential side effects of those options when you can have clearer skin in typically just a few short treatments? BBL® is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device, delivering light energy deep into skin to stimulate and regenerate skin cells.

Forever Clear is a cutting-edge acne treatment technique that uses the power of BBL to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine.

Benefits of Forever Clear BBL™

  • Customizable: Because of the speed and versatility of BBL® technology, your provider can treat a wide range of skin concerns in a single session.
  • No Downtime: Patients can enjoy normal social activities immediately afterwards, and there is no heavy or time-intensive post-care.
  • Amazing Results: See noticeable improvement within weeks, with continued improvement over time.
  • Comfortable: BBL® uses highly advanced cooling techniques to ensure treatments are not only safe and quick, but comfortable for you.

The Forever Clear BBL™ Experience

BBL technology as a whole addresses imperfections on the surface of the skin, as well as deep-rooted pigmentation issues. During a Forever Clear BBL™ treatment, patients feel minimal to no discomfort as the provider gently glides the BBL® handpiece across the skin. This will involve 3 total passes of the device over the treatment area.

The first pass uses blue light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria located deep within the skin’s pores.

The second pass uses yellow light to reduce inflammation and acne-associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin while preventing new breakouts.

For added benefit, the skin then receives a third pass of the BBL handpiece using infra-red light in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process, reduce the appearance of existing scars, and enhance the benefits of the first two steps.

Throughout this process, a sapphire at the end of the BBL®  applicator will keep the skin cool and comfortable. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 30 to 60 minutes.

How The Forever Clear BBL™ Works

Have you tried numerous methods to get acne under control? Now, drugs and other over the counter “remedies” can be a thing of the past. Why deal with the wait and potential side effects of those options when you can have clearer skin in typically just a few short treatments.

Forever Clear BBL is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine. BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device delivering light energy deep into your skin to stimulate and regenerate your skin cells, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.

  • Step 1: Skin is first treated with blue BBL light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria at its source, deep down in the pores.
  • Step 2: Skin is then treated with yellow BBL light to reduce the inflammation and acne-associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin.
  • Step 3: For added benefit, the skin is then treated with SkinTyte II™ using infrared light in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process.

Follow your personalized plan including add-on and follow-up treatments, as well as a skincare regimen to keep your skin lasting clear.

Forever Clear BBL™ Post-Care

There is no downtime associated with BBL®  treatments, making it a popular choice for those looking for long-term results without sacrificing time for significant recovery away from their everyday activities.

  • Because Forever Clear® BBL treatment requires three passes (times the device is applied to a specific area) of a single area, you may experience minor redness or swelling for up to five days post-treatment.
  • This is a natural and expected response by the skin, indicating that the provider performed the treatment correctly.
  • It is important that you wear a physical barrier (sunscreen, clothing) and limit your sun exposure after treatment. Your provider will advise you on a personalized post-treatment regimen.

Excited to come back!

Love this new place! I got a personal tour by Dr. K and learned about some amazing services that I can’t wait to try. Rachel gave me a diamond glow facial and I love the results. She is very knowledgeable and knows her stuff. I’m very excited to come back for other services!
