Is BB Glow done?

Howdy folks, I would like to tell you about my experience with BB Glow, one of the skin applications. Many beauty centers on social media were doing this procedure, they are still doing it. The before and after photos of the treated skin impressed me a lot. So I started researching these centers and decided to have a beauty center that I felt strongly about. Of course, it did not occur to me to look at complaints about this process. First of all, let me tell you what the BB Glow process is. BB Glow is the transfer of mesotherapy (some places call herbal blended serum) under the skin with a special needle tool such as a dermapen. The content of the serum transferred under the skin is said to make it easier to create a smooth image that creates a tightening, eliminating color inequalities, gaining moisture, providing radiance and foundation effect on the skin. In addition, with the micro needle system, it opens fine lines on the skin, contributes to increasing the production of collagen under the skin, and thus provides faster cell regeneration. Now hold on tight. Are these promises happening? No, none of this is happening. From here I can start to tell you about my experience.

The skin should not bleed while this procedure is performed. First, they apply a cream that numbs your face. Then, after spreading a foundation-colored serum on your face, they go over it with a dermapen-like tool. Some places bled from my skin, but there was no excessive bleeding. As with everyone who explains, immediately after the procedure, you walk around crimson as if the tube has exploded on your face, and sensitivity occurs. However, your face should not swell up. And while your face is healing, your skin should not be attached to a big big shell, as if you have had a dermapen applied to your face. Micron by micron, you need to have tiny peels. The place I had it done without tiring my skin too much, but as I realized later, the material was not good. I’ll tell you about that too in a moment. I had it done in December 2019. You need to protect your face with sunscreen and stay away from activities that will make any stains on your face. I used my sunscreen until the peeling was over, and my skin didn’t see much sun since it was in December. Everything has been normal for me so far, too. There were even people who said that after the peelings were over, a glow came to my face. But this sparkle did not see the week. Although it is called permanent to me for 1.5-2 years. When I expressed this, the beauty center where I had this procedure started a campaign and told me that 3 sessions needed to be done for the result to be permanent. He said let’s do 2 more sessions and I bought that campaign package. I also had other sessions, 1 per month. As a result, this process was a little disappointing for me. Because as in the first session, 2. before I could see the week, the glow on my face was gone. And also, as the most important thing for me, I had an allergic reaction to my skin. Thus, I realized that the serum given to my subcutaneous tissue was not a serum with a good content.

The beauty center that performed the procedure said it was a temporary thing, but it didn’t go away. For example, if I do any skin care procedure, my face swells or reddens. When I do the cleaning process for a blackhead, blisters form where I do it. It’s been 1 year since I had the procedure, and even if it’s not as extreme as in the early days, allergic reactions still continue on my skin.

Those who have had this procedure say in various forums that they regret it and their skin deteriorates even more. And estheticians say they inject dye under the skin with mesotherapy or something. You see, this process is completely a balloon and it’s not really good for the skin.

Taking all this into account, if you still say that you want to do this procedure, I would say that you should be very, very careful. Because the majority is not satisfied with this process. I would say to ask where they obtained the material at the center where you will get BB Glow and whether it has a health compliance or certificate. Apart from that, take care of your skin well. The care you do yourself will be more reliable than the support you will receive from outside.
