What is the BB Glow Treatment?

BB Glow starter kit


We all want to look and feel our best, but sometimes that can feel like a battle if you’re dealing with fine lines, uneven skintone, acne and other skin conditions. Fortunately, there are many cosmetic treatments and options available to help alleviate these concerns. BB Glow treatments utilise the latest technology and scientifically proven methods and formulations to improve these issues and more.

One of the newer treatments on the market is called the BB Glow. You might have heard beauty bloggers and celebrities raving about the benefits of BB Glow treatments on social media, but it’s only slowly gained popularity in Australia recently.


A skin glow treatment is the latest trend in skin care technology. This method of skin care is already a popular treatment in Singapore and Korea and only recently started to gain momentum in western culture. The BB Glow treatment uses laser technology to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin, however, it can also be done with a dermapen through microneedling. 

The BB Glow is an extremely superficial treatment using microneedling at very shallow depths to infuse skin with nourishing ingredients and infuse the outer layer with pigment for semi-permanent foundation. You will need to repeat this treatment several times for optimum longevity. One treatment will last a week at the most, so if you want your colour to last a little longer you will need to repeat the treatment about four days after the first. BB Glow treatments also supply your skin with BB serum. The BB serum is applied with our Dr Pen device and uses the microneedles on a very low level or the nano-needle cartridge to penetrate the skin. The Hydra Pro is the perfect device for anyone interested in the BB Glow treatment because it has an in-built serum cavity which injects the product into the skin during the needling process. The Hydra Pro is recommended for anyone interested in trying the BB Glow treatment. Learn more about the Hydra Pro here.

Microneedling also stimulates our collagen production and treats a variety of other anti-ageing skin care concerns. We recently published a blog post explaining the role collagen plays in skin. Click here to view the full article.  

Collagen is a natural protein found throughout the body, and it helps to give structure, elasticity and vibrancy to your skin. Unfortunately, as we age, your body produces less collagen, leading to wrinkles, a loss of elasticity and firmness. By stimulating your collagen production you can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, scarring and other skin concerns.


If you’re looking to revitalise the appearance of your skin, the BB Glow could be a good option for you.

You can restore your skin’s youthful glow, reduce the appearance of acne scars, sun damage and fine lines, and bring out the natural beauty of your skin with this non-invasive treatment. You will also achieve a semi-permanent foundation effect from the pigment infusion which can last up to 5 days per treatment.
