How to Prepare for Forever Clear BBL™
Before you arrive at Skin Technique for your Forever Clear BBL™ treatment, you must take a few precautionary measures before your appointment. Prior to your procedure, we suggest you:
- Refrain from extensive sun exposure for one month before your appointment.
- For three weeks, avoid waxing or chemical peeling the treatment area.
- Stop all topical products three days before your procedure.
- If your treatment is on your face, arrive at your appointment without makeup.
Additionally, it would help if you stopped contact sports, alcohol intake, aspirin, or anti-inflammatories for at least a week before and after your procedure to reduce the chance of breakouts, bruising, or trauma to the skin.
As all skin and patients are different, these are just the primary suggestions. We will go over any additional requirements to ensure effective results and good recovery.
What to Expect Post Forever Clear BBL™
The treated area may appear red, which will fade within 1-3 hours.

How does Dr. Christopher Pavlou perform Forever Clear BBL™
While the typical procedure time varies depending on treatment sites, Dr. Christopher Pavlou’s steps to ensure the best results are the same. The three-step process begins after a topical numbing cream is applied to the area:
- The skin is treated with a blue BBL light to destroy acne-causing bacteria deep into the pores.
- A yellow BBL light is applied to reduce inflammation and redness.
- We treat the area with an infra-red light (SkinTyte II™) which provides gentle, rapid pulses to help with the healing process.
