To achieve the desired results your beauty professional will work with you over 2 hours (in separate appointments) to work the ampoule into the skin.

Established salons in many major cities around the world have been offering this new procedure for over a year, which originated in Russia.  There have been overwhelmingly positive results for many who have undergone the procedure so far.

BB Glow Stayve Ampoule

The benefits of the BB Ampoule is that it evens out skin tone, helps to minimize the appearance of hyperpigmentation and redness, and lessens the appearance of pore size. The main benefit is that you can live your life foundation free for months to come!

Since we are microneedling the skin, we are awakening the fibroblast cells to stimulate and grow new collagen thus helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

We have been watching closely beauty services and products coming out of Brazil and South Korea. As we became familiar with camouflage tattoo we wondered if there were more temporary to long term solutions to mask dark circles or even out the skin tone on the face.

“What if we told you that there is a way to get naturally glowing and smoothed complexion without actually having to put on makeup? ”  

There are 3 shades of BB cream tones available – light, medium and dark. The closest shade is selected or mixed to perfection and then penetrated under the skin using a micro-needing device. The skin may appear slightly pink afterwards.

When a client arrives for the service they’ll receive a topical numbing cream. Within 15-30 minutes the skin will be comfortably numbed. Using a PMU, Microneedling or a Meso Pen the BB Cream ampoule will be gently massaged into the skin with a 12 point disposable cartridge. The results: a healthy-looking glow, evening out the tone and texture.

The process takes about 1 hour and is virtually pain-free! The needle depth is quite shallow and definitely avoids the dermis. The depth is 0.1 mm at IVONNE though some professionals will offer it at 0.2 to 0.5mm. Once the area is treated the process is set with a mask. The client may see some flaking or redness over the next 24 to 72 hours. The BB Cream will eventually slough off after several months as the natural cycle of skin shedding occurs.

The point of BB Cream Ampoule is that it be applied superficially to the outer most layers of the skin. While the process of microneedling as a skincare treatment is aimed at having therapeutic benefits by contrast BB Glow treatment is aimed at offering only cosmetic benefits. That BB Glow is applied using a microneedling process does not mean that clients will receive the full benefit of microneedling as the BB Ampoule is being applied very superficially. That’s not to say that there won’t be any benefits from microneedling, but that it’s simply not the goal. BB Glow is about covering up the skin, as that is the purpose behind foundation application. The benefits of BB Glow are in the convenience of not having to apply foundation every day. Freeing up your time!

As for the formula used to implant underneath the skin, it is claimed to contain no harsh chemicals, dyes or metals. 

It doesn’t have any harsh chemicals and you’re not putting anything different then what we put on a daily basis on our face. 

Since starting the procedure earlier this year, we’re receiving positive feedback from all our clients who boast even skin tones, diminished redness and improved appearance of scars.
