Step by Step for BB Glow
BB Glow: Step by Step treatment
BB Glow is the latest cosmetic trend originating from South Korea and Singapore where a flawless skin is a number one beauty must. Put it simply, it is a semi-permanent skin foundation which substitutes the need of using foundation creams on an everyday basis. The BB serum, containing anti-aging ingredients, antioxidants, and vitamins, is safely applied into the uppermost layer of the skin by a special Derma Pen using a nano needling technology, making the skin looks naturally better immediately and for a long time.
This was a brief summary of BB Glow, however, if you are new to BB Glow we would like to recommend you to read our previous articles BB Glow: All You Need to Know About the Latest Korean Trend and To BB Glow or Not to BB Glow? where we introduced you the BB Glow treatment more in depth and looked at some contraindications that may be associated with this treatment.

The BB Glow cream is micro-needled into the top layer of the skin with a specially developed Derma Pen. The speed and depth of needles can be adjusted according to the area of the skin that is being treated. The depth ranges from 0,25 to 1,5 millimetres. BB Glow Boosters are applied by microneedles while BB Glow Pigment Serums are applied by nanoneedles. One of the main advantages of Derma Pen is that it can be charged and used without being plugged into electricity, which makes it very practical during the treatment. It can also be used for an application of permanent makeup.
BB Glow in 7 Steps
Step 1.: The skin is disinfected with alcohol free disinfectant spray.
Step 2.: BB Glow STAYVE Dermawhite Exfoliating Gel Application
A thick layer of the gel is applied on the face, neck and neckline either by using gloves or a brush and is left to develop for a duration of up to 5 minutes depending on the skin type (2 to 3 minutes are recommended for a sensitive skin, 5 minutes are recommended for an oily and porous skin). The gel is not massaged into the skin and is removed by using wet cosmetic sponge pads.
Step 3.: Dermawhite Neutralising Foam Application
The foam is gently applied for up to 2 to 3 minutes and massaged into the skin by circular movements from the bottom to the top of the face. Similarly, as before the face is cleaned by using wet cosmetic sponge pads and dried with paper towels. Now the skin is ready for the BB Glow Ampoules.
Step 4.: BB Glow Booster Ampoules
Few drops of serums are put on each part of the face. Hands or brush are not suitable to achieve a maximum level of sterilisation. The Derma Pen with microneedles is used to apply the serums into an appropriate depth of the skin. Application is done by using circular movements for a duration of 7 to 10 minutes for each face area. In the end, the face is gently massaged into the face to support absorption of serums into the skin. Leftover serum on top of the skin can be wiped off with paper towels.
Step 5.: BB Glow Derma White Pigment Ampoules
As with BB Glow Booster Ampoules, the serums are applied into the skin by Derma Pen performing circular massage movements, however, in this case, a nano needling is used. The nanoneedles to do not make such pressure onto the skin, therefore, the application can be faster. It should take around 10 to 15 minutes. A lighter tone is usually used in an area of undereye and eyelids in comparison to the rest of the face. When the nano needling is finished the rest of the serum is massaged into the skin. Leftover serum can be wiped off with paper towels.
Step 6.: Repair Cream
Repair Cream is applied onto the face.
