Forever Bare BBL™ (Broadband Light)
Take hair removal to the next level.
Kiss the hassle of shaving, painful waxing and tweezing goodbye!
Using gentle, yet effective BBL™ energy to heat hair follicles, the revolutionary Forever Bare BBL™ treatment utilizes a thermoelectrically cooled sapphire plate on the handpiece to provide continuous skin cooling before, during and after the treatment for added comfort. The result is hair removal that’s more comfortable, safer, and typically faster than other traditional treatments.
Forever Bare BBL™ is a comfortable treatment with virtually no downtime. During the treatment, pulsed light delivers photothermal energy to hair follicles. The rapid, short pulses of light causes the hair follicle to stop producing hair without harming any surrounding tissue.
Hair grows in three stages. Since not all hairs are in the same growth stage at the same time, multiple treatments are necessary to target all hair in the treatment site. Treatments should be spaced approximately 6 weeks apart, typically 4-8 treatments are necessary for optimal results.
Any area of the body with unwanted hair can be treated. The most common areas are the face, under arms, arms, legs, and bikini area.
Dare to be Forever Bare!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the treatment like?
Treatments are comfortable and safe. A clear gel will be applied to the skin. Then, the BBL™ energy is delivered with a cooled applicator so there is minimal or no discomfort. Our licensed esthetician may choose to glide the applicator on the skin or stamp it depending on size and location of treated area. During the treatment, some patients experience a warm or stinging sensation in the treatment area. For your safety, your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses.
Personal sensitivity varies from patient to patient. Discuss your sensitivity with your esthetician before treatment. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results. While the face and neck can typically be done within 30 minutes, the actual time will depend on the size of the area treated. There is no need for a topical anesthetic, however, your esthetician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas.
How long does a Forever Bare BBL Treatment take?
Treatment time will vary depending upon the size of the area treated and your hair and skin type. Typically, a smaller area only takes a few minutes while a large area can take 15 minutes or longer. Forever Bare BBL™ is a comfortable treatment with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you can resume your normal daily activities immediately.
What should I expect after the treatment?
You may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately after treatment and this should return to normal within a few hours. A few days to a week after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Most of these hairs are actually being shed as a result of your Forever Bare BBL treatment and are not growing back. Minimal aftercare is needed.
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 4-8 treatments applied at approximately 6 week intervals to achieve optimal benefit. Long-term results depend on multiple factors such as hair thickness, the area treated and the hair’s growth cycle. The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and your esthetician can personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire.
