BB Glow Skin Treatment is a new trend in the world of cosmetology and micro-pigmentation, which originated in Korea and is steadily gaining popularity around the world, including Russia. The essence of this procedure is implantation in the top layer of the skin with a serum that contains reflective particles. You get the effect of even skin tone, as if you applied a light Foundation, the so-called BB cream. The technique of applying this serum is almost identical to the procedure for ordinary fractional mesotherapy. It is applied with dermapen (sometimes with derma stamp or derma roller) and a disposable plug, the cartridge. This procedure is performed in a circular or linear motion at a depth of 0.25-0.5 mm. The number of passes is 2 to 3, depending on the effect achieved.

Protocol (with comments) of the procedure using DermaPen:

  1. Cleansing (make-up). Thoroughly cleanse the skin with the use of skin cleansing products (washing) – choose hypoallergenic formulations that thoroughly clean the skin and do not leave a sticky layer on the face!
  1. Preparation stage for the procedure. Apply a cream anesthetic for 20 to 30 minutes (if necessary) – it should be remembered that any anesthetic is a potential allergen, in addition, it causes swelling and redness of the skin, therefore its use should be carefully justified, for example, if the client feels uncomfortable during the procedure, has a low pain threshold, etc. It is also very important to do the peeling procedure before the main mesotherapy procedure. Peeling can be done with the help of ultrasound or bio enzymes. The main thing is that the skin is not irritated before the main procedure. Attention! If after the peeling the skin is red, it is UNDESIRABLE to continue the procedure! Wait for a while until the skin comes back to normal and redness goes away, even if it takes 1 – 2 days. Only then you can do the procedure with bb glow skin treatment, skipping the peeling stage.
  1. Application of bb glow on the area of the procedure. Apply the active product locally, lightly spread it with massaging movements of the fingertips before you start working with derma peel. Attention! If the product is thick or quickly absorbed – apply it with a drip and right before starting work. The next portion is also applied right before starting work on the selected area, so you will spare the amount of product.
  1. Preparing the device for operation. Remove the sterile cartridge (needle nozzle) from the package, attach to the working part of the dermapen, and remove the protective cap. Select the desired length and frequency of needle feed to start processing. Adjust these settings according to the instructions. On the procedure of bb glow cartridge modules 9 -24 needles are normally used. Attention! All this should be done with gloves, observing all the rules of asepsis and antiseptics. It is preferable to do all this in front of the client so that he is also convinced of the use of disposable consumables and compliance with the cleanliness of the workplace.
  1. Performing the hardware procedure. Make a few linear movements with a derma peel, then circular passes on each part of the treated surface, starting with the forehead, finishing at the chin area, The number of passes is 2-3. It is individually adjustable depending on the skin type, age and other individual characteristics of the client. Attention! Many experts note the benefit of the procedure on the massage lines, starting with the forehead, and moving to the chin; it stimulates the outflow of lymph (the effect of lymphatic drainage), which will reduce or eliminate swelling of the skin, especially in prone to swelling customers.
  1. Completion of the procedure. At the end of the treatment, apply a soothing mask to the treated areas (preferably occlusive, for example, alginate, hydrogel, collagen); you can apply a nourishing or moisturizing serum under the mask. The duration of the mask is 20-30 minutes. Attention! A combination of bb glow and some hardware techniques that enhance the effect of serum is also possible. The most popular among them is the photodynamic therapy and electroporation.
  1. Postprocedural period. Complete the procedure with a smoothing serum or cream. Recommended creams based on hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and peptides. On the day of the procedure do not wash with water, 2 – 3 days before do not wash with soap or any detergents. Do not visit baths, saunas, swimming pools, and solariums. The next procedure should be done not earlier than 2-3 weeks after the previous procedure.

Within 3 months after the bb glow, the skin treatment procedure is recommended to use sunscreen on the treated area. Attention! If the serum consistency is liquid, it is better to gently pad it after the procedure (do not RUB!!!) and do not use the chlorhexidine!
