We all struggle with uneven skin tone. It seems like an endless battle against aging, hormones, UV rays, and stress, which all impact the vibrancy of our skin. As much as we don’t like to wear makeup, we’d feel worse being in public without covering our flaws and blemishes.
BB Glow is one of the latest anti-aging beauty innovations from South Korea. It’s a semi-permanent foundation for your face. It uses scientifically proven nano needling technology to safely infuse nutrient-rich tinted BB cream into the top layer of your skin. This treatment will provide light to medium coverage to camouflage all your facial imperfections – including hyperpigmentation, redness, dark circles and large pores. Everyone will think that you naturally have perfect skin and BB Glow can be your little secret.

What kinds of BB Serums are used?
Two types of serums are used for BB Glow treatments:
There are several well-known brands that are used for BB Glow treatments. These serums vary in color, consistency and active ingredients. The most popular and most well-known brand is Stayve. Stayve serums work well as they have very potent active ingredients and botanical extracts as well as medical-grade peptides and growth factors. Stayve serums are suitable for all skin types and work well for anti-aging and rejuvenation.
Derma White Ampoule (Stayve) – This serum is highly effective at camouflaging hyperpigmentation, brightening skin tone and improving skin texture due to its high concentration of active ingredients like Niacinamide, 13 botanical extracts, and epidermal growth factors. This serum also leaves skin hydrated and dewy.
Benefits of Stayve Derma White BB Cream:
You may resume your routine as soon as you finish. However, if you have sensitive skin, you may experience temporary irritation, tightness and redness for 1-2 days. Some people may experience mild peeling around the nose and mouth, particularly if they have dehydrated skin.
The great thing about BB Glow is that you will see immediate results. If you are a first-timer, the results can last 3-7 days. All first-timers should come back for a for a 2nd session in about two weeks to get further coverage.
To maximize the effectiveness of BB Glow, it’s recommended that you start with a series of 3-4 treatments, once every 2-4 weeks. After the initial series, the results of your BB Glow treatment can last up to 4 months or longer. With proper maintenance, the effect can last even longer.
At Serenity MedSpa, to enhance your results, we pretreat the skin with Caroboxy Gel Therapy. After your BB Glow treatment, we finish off the treatment with the LED light therapy. The entire treatment takes around 1.5 hours.
There are two types of aging: intrinsic and extrinsic.
Intrinsic aging is determined by genetics. Extrinsic aging is determined by external factors, such as sun exposure and lifestyle. The majority of aging is extrinsic. Factors that contribute to extrinsic aging include poor nutrition, drinking, smoking, medications and poor skin care regimen.
Skin needling is an effective way to treat extrinsic skin aging by providing skin rejuvenation. Micro injuries caused by needling stimulate wound healing with release of various growth factors, proliferation of fibroblasts and laying down of intercellular matrix.
It has been documented that skin treated with four microneedling sessions, one month apart, can increase collagen and elastin deposition by 400% with a thickened stratum spinosum. Skin fibroblasts are responsible for the production of collagen, elastin and glycosaminiglycans. GAGs are a natural moisture factor, most commonly known as hyaluronic acid, which creates a fluid filled space between the collagen and elastin fibers in the dermis.
It’s important to be knowledgeable about the anatomy of skin to understand how the BB Glow treatment works.
