What is BB Glow ?

BB Glow is the latest and fastest growing treatment in Europe, Asia and Australia and is now finally making its appearance in New Zealand. This treatment is a 100% natural semi-permanent foundation for your skin that will help even out imperfections and discolorations leaving your skin looking like you are wearing the highest quality light-weight face makeup. The BB Glow serum is a professional, scientifically proven, and quality tested skin care product that provides coverage of hyperpigmentation, redness, dark circles, and even large pores.

The premium BB Glow ampoule serum with whitening and skin rejuvenating properties will help alleviate your major skin problems while providing immediate coverage and long-lasting beauty without overstimulating the skin. The colour component of the BB glow formula brightens the skin and gives it a soft, glossy look with its effective ingredients such as niacinamide and peptides giving you a natural looking base.

How many sessions do I need ?

BB Glow can deliver results from just one treatment especially for a one off event or a weekend away. However for long term results lasting up to 4 months we recommend building up coverage over a course of 3 – 4 treatments each 7 – 10 days apart.

Is there any downtime?

You can go back to day to day life immediately after a treatment. However the BB Glow tint serums should stay on the skin for 24 hours and can look a bit shiny. Your skin may appear a bit dry or flaky after a few days. This is the natural inflammatory response of your skin to the needling as it rejuvenates.

Does it hurt?

During the BB Glow facial there are two needles used – one is a micro needle the other is a nano. In general it is a comfortable treatment but there may be slight discomfort on more sensitive parts of the face when using the micro needle. The nano needle delivers little to no discomfort during the tint application. Your therapist can adjust the needle if you are uncomfortable.

Is it safe ?

BB Glow is 100% safe, utilising natural ingredients and all the BB Glow semi-permanent foundation serums are free of parabens, fragrances, alcohol, and allergens. The product only goes into the top layer of your skin, never deeper. There are some BB Glow treatments done overseas that go deeper which can be unsafe – we don’t do that at Lab.

How long does it take?

The Dermaglow facial is 1.5 hours and includes cleansing, dermaplaning, needling of bespoke serum, nano needling of BB Glow tint then a soothing face mask under LED Light. BB glow facial is a little bit shorter it is 1 hour 10 mins, as it includes cleansing,exfoliating, needling of bespoke serum,nano needling of BB glow tint, then a soothing aloe vera mask is applied.

How much is it?

Our BB Glow facials range in price from $160 – $220. There is a great discount if you purchase a series of 4.

Can you Dermaplane before BB Glow?

We highly recommend the Dermaglow or Dermaboost Facial for your first treatment as this includes dermaplaning.This helps to increase product penetration and your skin will feel and look amazing.

     

     

    What is a Hydrojelly™Mask?

    Hydrojelly™ Masks are infused with electrolytes to boost skin hydration (just drinking water is not enough). The masks form a vacuum-like seal that compresses facial contours. These masks are formulated with refined algae, electrolytes and organic active ingredients to provide a unique silky texture and function as the mask blankets the skin. This intensive facial compression allows for complete absorption of organic nutrition and electrolytes to the deep layers of the skin (nutrition from the mask and also other ingredients still remaining on the skin from previous treatment). The masks have an instant cooling and soothing effect that is not only refreshing but helps firm, soothe and revitalize the skin for a natural subtle glow.

    Our Hydrojelly™ Mask Bar at Lab contains 18 types of mask from Hyaluronic Acid to Egyptian Rose to Belgium Cacao (Chocolate!) depending on your skin needs and your therapists recommendations. We absolutely recommend giving these a try – they are unlike anything else.

    An Intensive Aftercare Hydrojelly™ Mask is the perfect add on to any brazilian or bikini wax appointment. It helps soothe, eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, redness, disinfect skin and provides a natural anti microbial. A must try.
