What is BB Glow?
BB Glow is a semi-permanent facial treatment that simulates the effects of BB cream. The combination of microneedling and semi-permanent makeup will improve the tone and texture of the skin while targeting a number of skin issues. BB Glow provides a brightening effect that will even the skin tone by increasing the production of collagen and elastin.

- Redness, freckles, age spots, dark undereye circles

What is the BB Glow Pre-Treatment?
BB Glow is a painless procedure that only takes about 1.5 hours to perform. While the treatment is non-invasive, there are some important things to consider leading up to your appointment.
6 Months Before:

- If you take blood thinners or acne medications, consult a doctor and see if it’s safe to discontinue use.

Before your BB Glow appointment, your technician will provide a consultation. It’s crucial that you notify them of any skin or health concerns, treatments you’ve recently received, or any medications you are on. If you don’t have a full and honest consultation with your technician, the results may not be ideal or you could experience a negative reaction. Ultimately, your technician will determine if you are a good candidate to receive BB Glow or not.
