BB GLOW FACIAL FAQS
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
With the BB Glow facial treatment, you will see immediate results. If this is your first time getting the procedure, the results can last 3-7 days, and it is recommended to you come back for a 2nd session in about two weeks to get further coverage and enhanced results.
To achieve the best results with BB Glow, it’s recommended that you start with a series of 3-4 treatments, once every 2-4 weeks. After the first few sessions, the results of your BB Glow treatment can last up to 4 months or longer, and with continuous maintenance, the effects can last even longer!
How Does My Skin Benefit From A BB Glow Facial?
Not only will your skin give you a “no makeup” makeup look and glowy like you just FaceTuned, but this facial treatment in NYC also has a variety of benefits for the skin including:

- Have had injectable fillers applied within 2 weeks of receiving the treatment

Before treatment, you’ll be asked to discontinue any use of Retin A, Retinol, and Vitamin A for 3 to 5 days, as these products can irritate the deep layers of your skin.
How is BB Glow Done?
The procedure is safely done using a Microneedling Pen with a single-use sterile needle head. The device offers adjustable depth, speed, and needle size control. A session usually takes 2 hours, in which serums and/or pigments will be applied to stimulate the rejuvenation process along with a facial hydrating mask at the end.
What to Expect after a BB Glow Treatment?
Skin will be red with a mild swelling and/or bruising, skin might feel tight and sensitive to the touch. Although these symptoms may take 1 to 2 days to resolve completely, they will diminish significantly within a few hours after the treatment.
Are there any complications and risks associated to Microneedling? Yes, you might experience scarring, pain, persistent redness, itching and/or swelling, allergic reaction. Although Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure, there is a risk of infection. It is your responsibility to fully and accurately disclose all medical history prior to any treatment. If you have any condition listed above, if you are taking any medication, and/or if you are allergic to anything, please bring it to the attention of your esthetician prior signing this consent form.
Do you understand Semi-Permanent Results?
Microneedling will not completely or permanently improve skin texture, tone, elasticity, hyperpigmentation, scars,
fine lines and wrinkles. It is important that your expectations be realistic, and you understand that the procedure has its limitations. Additional procedures may be necessary to achieve your desired effects.
Although rare, there is a possibility Microneedling may induce undesirable results, including but not limited to skin sloughing, scarring, permanent pigment change, and/or other undesirable skin changes. Pigment/color change
(hyperpigmentation) is very rare, but could happen due to failure to follow post treatment instructions such as avoid sun exposure for 1 to 2 weeks after treatment, apply daily SPF facial moisturizer, and avoid picking or peeling skin
during healing period.
There’s little to no downtime after treatment. However, clients should avoid hot baths, saunas, and any strenuous exercise. Sun exposure should be avoided for the first couple of days after treatment. Don’t use harsh soaps or scrubs or apply makeup within 24 hours. It’s also required to wear SPF daily after treatment.
Mineral make up and sunscreen 50 SPF can be applied the following day. No sun exposure is required for 4 weeks, no sauna nor swimming pool for 1 week. BB Glow Treatment is recommended to be done in series of 3 to 5 sessions, results are accumulative.
