Acne breakouts are triggered when pores get clogged by debris such as dead skin cells, excess sebum, makeup, and pollution. Once clogged, inflammation and bacterial overgrowth occur leading to whiteheads and sometimes painful cystic acne. Sweat glands in your skin can also cause excessive sebum production clogging your pores and escalating inflammation. Hormones are also a catalyst no matter what your age. Acne can cause physical and emotional scarring if left untreated.
Hormones, diet, hygiene, and genetics are all factors that affect whether you have acne or not. However, it has recently been discovered that bacteria play a vital role. Genetic variations between the bacterial strains that exist in your pores make the difference between flawless skin and embarrassing blemishes. Forever Clear Broad Band Light (BBL™) is proven to effectively treat acne.

Forever Clear BBL is a 3 step treatment that utilizes broadband light and infrared light to target inflammatory acne, cystic acne, and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. The three steps reduce bacteria, oil, inflammation, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The Forever Clear Acne Treatment targets and speeds the healing of existing breakouts and prevents breakouts.
STEP 1: THE BLUE LIGHT TREATMENT
This step targets P.acnes bacteria that causes acneic breakouts. The blue light reduces active breakouts and new breakouts.
STEP 2: THE YELLOW AND RED LIGHT TREATMENT
This step improves active, inflamed cysts or papules. It reduces inflammation and redness associated with breakouts. Lastly it helps reduce new breakouts and it also improves the post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation and post-acne lesion redness.
STEP 3: INFRARED LIGHT TREATMENT

People often describe it as a slight popping sensation or light rubber band snap. You may experience some discomfort in more sensitive areas. We do not use topical numbing as we do not want to affect the blood vessels, which may lead to a less efficacious treatment. It can take as little as 15 minutes, depending on the area you are looking to treat, as well as the treatment you are receiving. Treatment time varies from patient to patient.
Improvements can been seen after just one treatment, but ideally a set of 6-8 treatments would be performed at 1-2 week intervals.
This is a non-invasive and typically gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to resume most of your activities immediately. Some redness immediately following the treatment is normal and should resolve within a few hours. This is a no downtime procedure so makeup can be applied immediately following.
You will be given post instructions and may be given additional products. You will be sensitive to ultraviolet light, and you must avoid direct sun exposure until completely healed. Fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
