What is BB Glow?
IMAGINE HAVING PORELESS AND VISUALLY GLOWING SKIN 24/7?
BB Glow Treatment offers more visible benefits than most other facial treatments. It is recommended for people with any skin type. The results are visible wrinkle improvement, even skin tone, and glow all at the same time.
BB Glow Treatments can assist in reduction of freckles and lightening of your skin. It also helps with skin discoloration caused by acne and photo-aging (age spots). BB Glow is one of the latest beauty treatments using micro- needling with nano technology to infuse semi-permanent BB cream and stem cell serums into the skin. BB Glow is made with many anti-aging ingredients, vitamins and antioxidants that gives your skin a youthful and dewy glow. This treatment is ideal for those who prefer a natural looking appearance without clogging pores from foundation makeup. See results in one session.
How it works?
During the treatment, the pores will be open for the use of our Dermawhite gel and neutralizing foam. Using a special needle-free system it is gently infused into the upper layer of the skin (the epidermis)- leaving your skin brightened, poreless and flawlessly glowing.
1 - 3 sessions (each 2 weeks apart) will provide your skin with light coverage to soften the appearance of blemishes, hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, freckles, rosacea, redness and lighten up dark under eye circles. (Individual results may vary)
BB Glow Treatment Includes:
Carboxy gel (carbon dioxide) therapy treatment.
Micro-needling nano technology that infuses stem cell serums and BB cream.
LED light therapy
Cleansing – A cleanser is chosen based on skin type and applied to the face, neck and decollete to remove any surface oils or debris.
Exfoliation – Derma White Exfoliating Gel is used to gently clean your pores and remove dead skin cells, which signifcantly improves your skin texture and color and aids in the absorption of active ingredients.
Neutralization – Derma White Neutralizing Foam is applied, left on for few minutes and removed to restore the skin’s pH balance, reduce redness, moisturize and improve skin tone.
Carboxy Gel Therapy – Unlike most other offices, we add on Carboxy Therapy before BB Glow to prepare the skin and optimize the results. (This step will be discussed further below.)
Meso Serum (transparent) – This is another extra step added on to enhance your results. Using nano needling, we infuse a transparent meso serum to create more collagen, brighten and hydrate the skin.
BB Glow Serum (serum with foundation) – The BB Serum shade that best matches your skin tone is infused into the skin with the nano needles and left on for 15 minutes.
Mask – A fabric mask is placed over the BB Serum to keep it from drying out and to provide extra hydration and soothe the skin.
LED Light Therapy – LED light therapy is also performed for 15 minutes with the mask on the skin to enhance the results.
Product removal – The mask and the product is removed after 15min.
Stayve Repair Cream – Stayve Repair Cream is applied as the final step. The cream helps to soothe and restore the treated skin.
What kinds of BB Serums are used?
Two types of serums are used for BB Glow treatments:
Meso Serums – These serums are transparent and do not have color.
BB Serums – These serums have color and are used for camouflage.
There are several well-known brands that are used for BB Glow treatments. These serums vary in color, consistency and active ingredients. The most popular and most well-known brand is Stayve. Stayve serums work well as they have very potent active ingredients and botanical extracts as well as medical-grade peptides and growth factors. Stayve serums are suitable for all skin types and work well for anti-aging and rejuvenation.
Derma White Ampoule (Stayve) – This serum is highly effective at camouflaging hyperpigmentation, brightening skin tone and improving skin texture due to its high concentration of active ingredients like Niacinamide, 13 botanical extracts, and epidermal growth factors. This serum also leaves skin hydrated and dewy.

What Is The Skin Science Behind BB Glow?
There are two types of aging: intrinsic and extrinsic.
Intrinsic aging is determined by genetics. Extrinsic aging is determined by external factors, such as sun exposure and lifestyle. The majority of aging is extrinsic. Factors that contribute to extrinsic aging include poor nutrition, drinking, smoking, medications and poor skin care regimen.
Skin needling is an effective way to treat extrinsic skin aging by providing skin rejuvenation. Micro injuries caused by needling stimulate wound healing with release of various growth factors, proliferation of fibroblasts and laying down of intercellular matrix.
It has been documented that skin treated with four microneedling sessions, one month apart, can increase collagen and elastin deposition by 400% with a thickened stratum spinosum. Skin fibroblasts are responsible for the production of collagen, elastin and glycosaminiglycans. GAGs are a natural moisture factor, most commonly known as hyaluronic acid, which creates a fluid filled space between the collagen and elastin fibers in the dermis.
