What Is Forever Clear® (BBL)?

Forever Clear (BBL)® is a versatile acne treatment in Tampa that can be customized to your specific needs. This innovative treatment uses BroadBand Light (BBL) technology to deliver targeted light energy into the skin, stimulating the body's natural healing response and promoting healthy, clear skin.

How It Works

Forever Clear (BBL)® delivers intense pulses of light energy into the skin, penetrating deep into the tissue to target the root causes of acne and other skin conditions. The light energy is absorbed by the targeted cells, which heats them up and destroys them. This process also stimulates the body's natural healing response, which helps to reduce inflammation and promote healthy skin. The treatment is suitable for every skin type and appropriate for use on the face, neck, and chest, making it a comprehensive solution for many skin concerns.

Who Is a Candidate?

If you are looking for a non-invasive and effective acne treatment in Tampa to improve your skin's appearance, Forever Clear® (BBL) by Sciton may be right for you. 

Forever Clear® (BBL) can help reduce inflammation and kill the bacteria that cause acne breakouts. It also minimizes the appearance of acne scars and prevents future breakouts, making it an excellent option for anyone struggling with acne.

This treatment is suitable for most struggling with acne. Our providers will assess each patient to determine if they are a candidate. It often takes several treatments to achieve goals, and maintenance therapy and skin care are usually required for optimal results.

We prioritize safety above all, so if you are pregnant, have certain medical conditions, or are taking certain medications, let our board-certified nurse practitioner Michelle Buchanan know so she can determine the best treatment plan for you.

What Are the Benefits of Forever Clear® (BBL)?

Forever Clear® (BBL) offers a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Clearer, healthier-looking skin
  • Reduced acne and acne scarring
  • Improved skin texture and tone
  • Reduction in hyperpigmentation and sun damage
  • Non-invasive, pain-free treatment
  • Minimal downtime and recovery

What to Expect During Forever Clear® (BBL) Treatment

The Forever Clear® (BBL) treatment typically takes around 30 minutes to an hour, based on the size of the area being treated. Most patients report feeling only a slight heat sensation during the Forever Clear® (BBL) treatment. The procedure is generally well-tolerated, and most patients do not need any anesthesia. However, if you have particularly sensitive skin, Michelle may apply a topical numbing agent before the treatment to ensure your comfort. 

The number of treatments will be determined during your consultation based on your skin concerns and goals. Typically, patients will need a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Michelle will create a personalized treatment plan with you that addresses your concerns. During the treatment, you may feel a slight warming sensation as the light energy is delivered to your skin.

After undergoing Forever Clear® (BBL) treatment, it is essential to follow your aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results. The following are some guidelines to follow:

  • Refrain from exposing the treated areas to direct sunlight for at least 48 hours after treatment – daily sunscreen is required along with limited sun exposure for 1-2 weeks after treatment
  • Apply a cold compress to the treated areas to reduce swelling and discomfort
  • Avoid hot showers, steam rooms, and saunas for at least 48 hours after treatment
  • Wait to use makeup or other skincare products on the treated areas for at least 24 hours after treatment
  • Refrain from heavy exercise or activities that may cause sweating for at least 24 hours after treatment
  • Drink lots of water to ensure your skin stays hydrated and promote healing

You may experience some redness, swelling, and mild discomfort after the procedure, but this should subside within a few hours to a few days.
