WHAT IS KOREAN BB GLOW?

South Korea is well known for its ability to develop treatments for virtually flawless-looking skin. BB Glow is one of the latest anti-aging beauty innovations from South Korea. BB Glow is a cosmetic procedure where a semi-permanent foundation is used that allows you to achieve glowing, radiant, seemingly poreless skin after 3-4 sessions lasting up to 6 months. If you would like to find out if a Korean BB Glow treatment is right for you, schedule an appointment with Illuminate at our Palo Alto facility today.

HOW DOES A KOREAN BB GLOW PROCEDURE WORK?

A Korean BB Glow is actually several procedures applied in conjunction with one another. The primary procedure involved in this treatment is the microneedle therapy system, (MTS), which tightens, brightens and rejuvenates your skin. Steps in BB Glow include cleansing the skin with a custom cleanser, exfoliating gel to remove the dead skin, neutralizing foam to restore the skin’s PH balance, Carobxy Gel Therapy, a Meso Serum infusion using nano needling, the BB Glow serum infusion, and finally a healing mask and LED light therapy.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING A KOREAN BB GLOW PROCEDURE?

At Illuminate Plastic Surgery, to enhance your results, we pretreat the skin with CO2 Carboxy Gel Therapy. After your BB Glow treatment, we finish off the treatment with 15 minutes of LED light therapy. The entire treatment takes around 1.5 hours and you will leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. This is a safe and intensive skin treatment that can lighten skin tone and assist in reducing the appearance of freckles, and other skin discoloration caused by acne, photo-aging, and age spots.

HOW LONG IS RECOVERY TIME?

There is no major recovery needed with Korean BB Glow, but you should observe the following guidelines:

  • During the first 24 hours, do not wash your face or use any moisturizers or makeup.
  • Mineral makeup and sunscreen (SPF 50) may be applied the following day.
  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure for 2 weeks. If you are outdoors, sunscreen with SPF 30 should be worn every 2 hours.
  • No sauna, baths or swimming for 1 week.
  • No scrubs or exfoliators for 1 week.
  • No strenuous exercise for 1-2 days.
  • Do not use harsh soaps or scrubs or heavy skin care products on the face for 1 week.

WHAT CONDITIONS WILL A KOREAN BB GLOW PROCEDURE TREAT?

This treatment can help with a variety of facial conditions, including hyperpigmentation, redness, dark circles and large pores. It is not only great at covering up your facial skin flaws, but it will also hydrate your skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and reduce blackheads. The BB Glow treatment is also ideal for people with rosacea, to help cover up redness and broken capillaries. The pigmented serum does not rub or wash off. So, you can sweat, shower and swim all you want. In addition, the BB cream that’s infused into your skin contains many anti-aging ingredients, vitamins, and antioxidants that will keep your skin healthy and youthful.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM A KOREAN BB GLOW TREATMENT?

You will see results after the first session, but for best results that are long-lasting, we recommend 3-4 sessions with a 5th touchup session.* BB Glow will not clog your pores and cause breakouts as the pigment is inside your skin versus sitting on top of your pores. It is a great treatment for those who, despite having tried all the latest anti-aging technologies, still are not able to remove stubborn spots. Now, BB Glow can safely camouflage imperfections and provide flawless skin.

HOW MUCH DOES A KOREAN BB GLOW TREATMENT COST?

The cost of Korean BB Glow treatments can vary because the treatment may be customized to your particular skin type and the conditions you may wish to address. We can recommend several options to pay for your Korean BB Glow treatments over time for your convenience. Our patients often enjoy the services of such credit companies as CareCredit and Alphaeon. Many of our patients will choose to apply for credit cards with longer terms at 0% interest.
