Unpacking the Latest South Korean Beauty Trend: BB Glow
Have you ever wished for clean, flawless skin and a glowing complexion without foundation? BB Glow treatment is a popular South Korean beauty trend that promises that! This safe and effective treatment is relatively new in North America, but it’s one of the fastest-growing options in Asia, and its popularity is now spreading worldwide!
BB Glow helps with blemishes, large pores, uneven skin tones, dark circles, and other skin imperfections, making you look and feel younger and more refreshed!
What is BB Glow?
BB Glow is a semi-permanent intensive skin treatment. It involves using a microneedling procedure to stimulate natural collagen production and infuse your skin with BB Glow serum to give you a soft, beautiful glow.
Collagen is one of the building blocks of your body. As you age, your body produces less of it, which means your skin can start to become less firm and supple. By stimulating your body’s collagen production, you’ll experience improved elasticity and skin firmness, helping you look younger and healthier. At the same time, the treatment will start restoring an even skin tone and complexion, giving your skin a softer, more glowing look.
BB Glow treatments can:
Reduce freckles, pimples, and blemishes
Even your skin tone
Give you brighter, more radiant skin
Reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles
Eliminate dark circles under your eyes
And much more
You can expect to see instant results following your first session. The effects then become more pronounced and longer-lasting following subsequent sessions.
Safety of BB Glow
BB Glow treatments are very safe. The microneedling process does not penetrate deeply into your skin and, all serums and products used in the treatment are free of fragrances, parabens, and common allergens.
A BB Glow treatment is also relatively painless and straightforward, so you won’t need to worry about taking any medication or using numbing creams. Most people are barely able to feel the process!
In some cases, a small number of people may experience minor side effects such as redness or peeling around the nose and mouth. These symptoms usually only last around a day or so in most people.
What to do Before and After Treatment of BB Glow
To prepare for a BB Glow treatment, avoid prolonged sun exposure 24 hours before your appointment. To ensure your skin is clean, you will also want to avoid applying makeup that day.
Before your treatment, you will receive a deep cleanse to remove surface debris and oil from your skin. Then, an exfoliation gel will gently remove dead skin cells and cleanse your pores.
One key aftercare note is that you wear sunscreen on your face and avoid direct heat and sunlight for the first 72 hours. Avoid swimming and strenuous exercise, which could cause sweating, for 72 hours, as well.
Most people only require one day of downtime after BB Glow treatment. Some people with sensitive skin may require more time. During aftercare, avoid using facial cleansers and wash with water only. We will give you a detailed post-treatment skincare routine following your visit so that you know what to expect.
