Have you ever heard of semi-permanent foundation? As we age the struggle against hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, big pores, fine lines and breakouts becomes harder and harder. Especially as diet, sun exposure, age and hormones all contribute to the deterioration of the appearance of our skin. Imagine you can have glowing, radiant skin and a smooth complexion without putting on makeup! Enter semi-permanent foundation, otherwise known as BB Glow.

It is a technique that is the “hottest” beauty treatment from Europe to Korea. It is described as “semi-permanent makeup.” Organic pigment, in the consistency of a cream, is literally injected into the superficial top layers of skin using nano needles. In this procedure, nano needles are used that are less than half in diameter of microneedles, thereby making it much more comfortable than microneedling.

After numbing the skin for 20 minutes with a topical numbing cream, the foundation is color matched to your complexion and literally injected into the skin. The nano needles are so small that the sensation is
more of a vibration than any pain.

Other agents such as a bleaching compounds, or hyaluronic acid for wrinkle reduction, can also be introduced into the skin with this technique.

In general, three applications are required a week apart to obtain the following improvements:
‒ Brighter, glowing skin
‒ More even skin tone, evening out hyperpigmentation
‒ Fewer lines and wrinkles
‒ Less freckles
‒ Decreased pore size
_ Eliminate spots, dark circles and melasma

In addition, this look lasts anywhere from 6-12 months.

A BB Glow treatment will give you the confidence about your skin that you so much desire. The treatment is safe and there is no downtime. The BB cream is organic and free of fragrances, parabens, alcohol and allergens. An hour treatment is said to cost £100.00
