The cosmetic tattoo industry has really taken off lately. Clients are loving their tattooed eyebrows, which allow them to skip the step of applying eyebrow pencil every morning. But what if you are someone who uses a lot of foundation to mask your uneven skin tone? Does the cosmetic tattoo industry have a solution for you? Actually, it does. You may want to look into a treatment called BB Glow. Here are the basics you need to know about this treatment.
How Is BB Glow Treatment Performed?
Many practitioners who offer cosmetic tattoo treatments are beginning to offer this treatment. However, it is done a bit differently than a traditional tattoo. The ingredients used in BB glow treatments are applied with a tool called a microneedle, which is basically a pen that contains fluid and has a very tiny, needle-like tip meant to pierce the skin.
Now, here's the secret: the fluid inside the microneedle pen is not a pigment. Instead, it is a specialized blend of nutrients and hydrating fluids. When injected into the skin, these fluids, along with the tiny injury, prompt your skin to produce more collagen. The collagen helps even out your skin tone, fade scars, and lead to a generally brighter complexion.
When Do You Get Results From BB Glow?
Some of the nutrients in the serum help make your skin look brighter and more even right away. However, your results will continue to develop for a week or two after treatment as your skin starts developing more collagen. Most patients need several treatments before they get the results they desire, but once you are happy with the way your face looks, you should be able to comfortably go out without foundation makeup on your face!
Does BB Glow Hurt?
BB Glow generally feels like a little bit of pricking or pinching. Most people do not find it overly painful — just a little annoying. If you are in pain, your practitioner can apply a numbing gel to your face. However, this is not usually necessary.
You can go right back to work or carry on with your everyday life after a BB glow treatment. There's no recovery time, although you will want to stay out of direct sunlight and wear sunscreen for about a week afterwards.
Putting on foundation makeup every day can be a bit of a pain. If you're ready to do away with this routine, look into BB glow treatments.
