Acne is common, but that doesn’t make it any less frustrating for those who are dealing with it. For some people, acne means a few pop-up pimples here and there in some trouble areas. For others, acne means deep cysts and constant breakouts all over the face. Severe acne wages war on your skin and often leaves behind deep scars and marks, causing troubling cosmetic concerns and decreased self-esteem.
Acne is a skin disorder that affects the skin’s oil glands and hair follicles. It stems from a mixture of hormonal imbalances, and external substances such as dirt and oil building up in your pores. Over-the-counter creams and medications, changes to diet and changes to your facial skin care routine are some ways to combat tricky acne. Unfortunately, these options are not effective for everyone.
Before you give up on finding the perfect treatment, know that there are more options — even one that can deliver clearer skin in typically just a few short treatments. If you’ve tried it all for acne without any success, it’s time to visit Dr. Dy and try Sciton’s Forever Clear Broadband Light™(BBL).
Forever Clear BBL™ is a cutting-edge, FDA approved 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 Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) device delivering light energy deep into your skin to stimulate and regenerate your skin cells. The energy from the pulse infrared and visible light primes the upper layers of your skin to increase the production of collagen, which is a structural protein that the body uses for wound repair, including acne marks. The results? Clear, healthy and radiant skin.
Here are some before and after photos:Here’s how Forever Clear BBL™ works:
Skin is first treated with blue BBL light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria at its source, deep down in the pores.
Skin is then treated with yellow BBL light to reduce the inflammation and acne-associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin.
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.
Forever BBL delivers quick and easy treatments with no patient downtime
A thin film of gel is applied to your skin, followed by the BBL treatment. Treatment sessions last between 20 and 30 minutes. Most patients experience little, if any discomfort. There is no patient down time, which means you can continue everyday activities right when you walk out of your appointment. You can even apply makeup immediately, if desired.
Discomfort and post-treatment side effects are minimal and rare
The Forever Clear BBL™ treatment may produce mild symptoms, which usually disappear in a few hours for most patients. These symptoms most typically include:
- A mild sunburn-like sensation on your face
- Temporary darkening of pigmented lesions
- Mild facial irritation
To help relieve skin irritation, you can use cold compresses, gentle moisturizers and/or products containing aloe vera for a soothing effect.
A few quick series of treatments delivers effective results
To achieve maximum skin improvement with Forever Clear BBL™, a series of four treatments every two weeks is most effective. Most patients will need periodic touch-up treatments ranging from monthly to every six months, depending on your acne type and severity. Before you give up on achieving clear, healthy and radiant skin, visit Dr. Dy to start Forever Clear BBL™ treatments.
