Do you mean bubbles as you're molding a part or bubbles appearing in something after being exposed to the sun?

You're probably screwed but I would need pics to see if anything can be done.

give it the float test

saving it depends on whether or not it's cosmetic, as a fix probably won't be pretty. But then again, if it's bubbling, you have a problem with the UV coat/resin degradation and the rest of it will look like **** too - which brings us back to the float test

There probably isn't anything you can do.
