Acne & Acne Scars
Pimples, blemishes, zits—acne goes by many names, but no matter what you call it, it’s a problem that nobody enjoys dealing with.
Just about everybody is affected by acne at some point in his or her lifetime. Every morning, about 50 million Americans wake up and look in the mirror to find these unwelcome red bumps speckled across their skin. While acne is most common with teenagers, many adults continue to struggle with ongoing breakouts or the scars that acne left behind.
Drug Free Acne treatment- Forever Clear BBL uses a unique 3 step process
Have you tried numerous methods to get acne under control? Now, drugs and other over the counter “remedies” can be a thing of the past. Why deal with the wait and potential side effects of those options when you can have clearer skin in typically just a few short treatments. Most patients experience 90% improvement after a few short treatments.
Forever Clear BBL is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine. BBL is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device delivering light energy deep into your skin to stimulate and regenerate your skin cells, leaving you with clear, healthy, radiant skin.
Skin is first treated with BLUE BBL light to eliminate acne-causing bacteria at its source, deep down in the pores.
Skin is then treated with YELLOW BBL light to reduce the inflammation and acne-associated redness to give you healthy, luminous skin.
For added benefit, the skin is then treated with SkinTyte II™ using INFRA-RED light in rapid, gentle pulses to initiate the body’s natural healing process.
For added benefit, follow your personalized plan including add-on and follow-up treatments, as well as a skincare regimen to keep your skin lasting clear.

What is causing your acne?
In most cases, acne is caused by the effects of puberty in young adults and adolescents. However, there are many factors that can be causing even adults to still struggle with the occasional breakout, such as genetics, hormones, menstruation, stress, specific foods, and certain medications. Even once the acne stops, the discolored scars and pockmarks often stay behind.
