What Is BB Glow Up?
BB Glow Up is one of the latest anti-aging beauty innovations. It’s a semi-permanent foundation for your face. BB Glow Treatment is a safe procedure designed to reduce the appearance of freckles and skin discoloration caused by acne and photo-aging (age spots). This treatment will provide light to full coverage to camouflage all your facial imperfections – including hyperpigmentation, redness, dark circles and large pores.
What are the benefits of BB Glow?
BB Glow will instantly and perfectly even out all your blemishes and discolorations.
BB Glow is not only great at covering up your facial skin flaws, it will also hydrate your skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of under-eye dark circles, and reduce blackheads and clogged pores.
BB Glow is also great for people with rosacea, to help cover up redness and broken capillaries.
BB Glow does not rub or wash off. So, you can sweat, shower and swim all you want. At the end of the day, you will still have that amazing glowing and flawless skin.
BB Glow is also good for your skin. The pigment that’s infused into your skin contains many anti-aging ingredients, vitamins and antioxidants that will keep your skin healthy and youthful.
BB Glow will NOT clog your pores and cause breakouts as the pigment is inside your skin versus sitting on top of your pores.
Good candidates include people with:
- Dull, uneven skin texture
- Post acne scars
- Age spots and sun spots
- Early aging and lax skin
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Active infections or open wounds
- Keloid or raised scars
- Active acne breakouts

- History of cold sores or fever blisters. Taking an anti-viral medication may help to avoid a possible breakout. The medication should be used 2 days before and 2 days after treatment.
- Smoker (due to lipid peroxidation)

What can be expected?
There’s no downtime with the treatment, so you can resume your normal routine. Some clients may experience temporary irritation, tightness or redness. The sensitivity and redness will diminish significantly within 24 hours. Other common short-term side effects include itching, discomfort, pinpoint bleeding or bruising, scabbing, and darkening of the treated area. Additionally, the skin may look and feel like sandpaper; these effects generally last 2-7 days as the treated skin flakes off and is replaced by new glowing tissue.
Is BB Glow safe?
BB Glow is very safe as it uses a nano needling technology and does not go deep in the skin. Also, all the BB serums are free of parabens, fragrances, alcohol and allergens. The procedure is absolutely painless and safe.
How long does BB Glow last? How many treatments are recommended?
The great thing about BB Glow is that you will see immediate results. If you are a first-timer, the results can last 3-7 days. We recommend up to 7 treatments done every 1-2 weeks. The results will then last up to 6 months. If you wish to maintain the results we recommend a top up once every 3-4 months. With proper maintenance, the effect can last even longer. The more treatments you have the more coverage you receive.
How long does the BB Glow Treatment take?
At MUSE STHETIX, to enhance your results, we pretreat the skin with Caroboxy Gel Therapy. After your BB Glow treatment, we finish off the treatment with the LED light therapy. The entire treatment takes around 2-3 hours.
What kinds of BB Serums are used?
Two types of serums are used for BB Glow treatments:
- Meso Serums – These serums are transparent and do not have color.
- BB Serums – These serums have color and are used for camouflage.
There are several well-known brands that are used for BB Glow treatments. These serums vary in color, consistency and active ingredients. The serums we use, work well as they have very potent active ingredients and botanical extracts as well as medical-grade peptides and growth factors. The serums we use are suitable for all skin types and work well for anti-aging and rejuvenation. These coloured serums are 100% organic using only vegetable extracts and are KFDA approved. The closest shade of BB cream is selected and penetrated under the top layer of skin using a micro-needling device. BB cream serums will blend & adjust to your skin tone whilst rejuvenating & repairing your skin from the inside out. Whilst the procedure is not painful, some minor discomfort may be experienced.
