Needles for beauty? All about BB Glow!

BB Glow is a procedure that not only makes your skin appear radiant and flawless, it enables you to achieve an even complexion. The process of BB glow comprises of 5-6 steps that prepare and cleanse your skin, leaving it looking more healthier, fresher, and of course beautiful.

I was so intrigued with this procedure, hence, I booked an appointment and got myself the infamous BB glow facial.

Here’s how my experience went:

The initial treatment started with the aesthetician cleansing my face to remove any makeup residue and prep it for the process. Following that, she applied numbing cream for around 20 minutes to ensure my face did not feel any pain during the next step. Next, it was time for the process which I was truly terrified of; MICRONEEDLING! The process started with a booster serum which is applied using micro-needling, so it penetrates your skin to leave it feeling hydrated.

Surprisingly, the process was pain free (the numbing cream worked) and it was quite a new experience for me. It allows our skin to produce more collagen and reduce wrinkles, blemishes and ofcourse any pigmentation.

After this, a BB Glow serum is added and applied into the skin. The shade is chosen according to our natural colour tone and enables our complexion to give off a more even and blemish free look.

The next step is the application of the Esthemax Jelly Mask which is extremely hydrating and creates a soothing impact with 10 minutes of LED Light therapy!

The last step includes application of Peptide to repair the skin as the pores are open. The procedure is simple and quite relaxing as well.

My skin felt a little inflamed after the process but that is natural as I literally had needles in my face.

I was advised to not wear makeup or use tap water for 5 days and ensure I follow the after care religiously which included a combination of hyaluronic acid serum and grapeseed oil. I was also told to use Peptide after 5 days.

A week later, I can surely say, my skin feels so fresh, radiant and pore less! I barely use any makeup and it feels so good!

I don’t know about you guys, but I am surely considering getting another session to see improved results!

This was it for today, until next time!
