Skincare has gained a lot of attention in recent times. Routinely, we see a lot of trends that promise youthful and glowing skin. One such top beauty trend doing the rounds is the BB glow treatment. Well, if you’re someone who desires glowing skin, this treatment is all you need!

What is BB glow treatment?

BB glow is a semi-permanent makeup in which a pigment is introduced into the skin using micro-needling technology. It promotes skin rejuvenation and collagen production, hides your pigments, and works as makeup as well, giving you glowing skin.

How does BB glow treatment work?

The treatment uses state-of-the-art technology to penetrate deep into your skin. The penetration boosts natural collagen production, which improves skin texture, elasticity, and vibrancy as well as the look of your facial skin. Collagen is critical as it gives structure to your skin without which the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines would be more noticeable.

Here’s the process of BB glow treatment:

To begin with, the skin is first deeply cleansed and exfoliated followed by a neutralized toner. Then the semi-permanent BB cream is carefully applied using a micro-needling pen. The microneedles are small so patients generally don’t feel any discomfort. A hydrating mask then covers the serum and with the mask still on, LED light therapy is used to enhance results.

BB glow facial can be good for your skin, but it depends on certain factors such as your skin type, who performs the procedure as well the quality of the material used. Most importantly, understand that it is not a procedure to be carried out in a regular beauty parlour. A qualified dermatologist or a plastic surgeon can perform it. Some of the important benefits of BB Glow include:

  • Moisturizes the skin
  • Gives you a no-makeup look for 1-2 months
  • Can be customized for all skin types
  • Gives you a youthful and radiant complexion
  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and dark circles
  • It evens out the skin texture
  • It reduces the visibility of pores and blackheads
  • It hides blemishes and covers up redness

Things to keep in mind:

While BB glow does work wonders for your skin but a lot depends on who does the procedure, the product used, and so on and so forth. As with any other treatment, it can have side effects like redness, pigmentation, scarring, dermatitis, patchy skin, and swelling of the skin. All this is because while nourishing the skin with vitamins and nutrients is good, driving in non-degradable makeup like tinted pigment is not!

Also, micro-needling must be done by a qualified and experienced dermatologist or a plastic surgeon because, if not done right it could cause pigmentation and scarring.


BB glow treatment does make your skin look younger and radiant. However, the goal should be healthier skin and not just fairer skin. If you work on making your skin healthier, it will surely glow and look bright and radiant!
