Whether it is peach fuzz on your upper lip, a stubborn bikini line, underarms, or legs, unwanted hair is never a joy to remove. Sometimes you may accidentally cut yourself shaving. Waxing is rarely a painless experience, and some laser hair treatments can sometimes burn and sting around the targeted treatment area. Oh, and let’s not forget ingrown hairs!
Why does hair removal have to be so painful? While some may say, “that’s the price of beauty,” technology has evolved through leaps and bounds to debunk that belief.
Laser hair removal is one of the most common, non-invasive surgical procedures used by both men and women today. It continues to grow in popularity as patients crave permanent bare skin and low to no maintenance.
Forever Bare BBL™
Laser Hair Removal is a treatment like none other. Its revolutionary design is powerful, and it is considered next-level laser hair removal thanks to robust technology and vastly improved application and results. It is a treatment that is safe, fast, efficacious, and yes, even comfortable. By providing energy in multiple bursts instead of all at once, Forever Bare BBL™ keeps the skin protected and progressively raises the follicle temperature to the therapeutic level for hair removal. The motion BBL technology allows for extremely even heating of the hair follicle and minimizes missed areas that occur with traditional hair removal devices.
How It Works
Forever Bare BBL™ exposes the skin to pulses of laser light at a very high frequency. These frequencies are absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is then converted to heat which damages the hair follicles so they can no longer produce hair. As the area is treated, a thermoelectrically cooled sapphire plate on the handpiece keeps the skin cool during the whole procedure, thus reducing pain or discomfort.
Once the hair follicles are damaged, the hair will naturally fall out.
Traditionally, hair removal devices apply all their energy to any given area all at once. By sending multiple lower pulses at a high repetition rate, Forever Bare BBL™ provides a treatment that is safer, fast, and comfortable.
What to Expect from Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
At least six weeks before your first treatment, you’ll want to avoid waxing, electrolysis, and plucking. The root of the hair is what the laser targets during treatment. If you temporarily remove the root of the hair prior to laser hair removal, your treatment will not be as effective. You also want to avoid excessive sun exposure leading up to your procedure. On the day of your treatment, you should avoid using any lotions, perfumes, makeup, or creams on your skin.
When you arrive for treatment, you’ll be taken to a luxurious patient room. Depending on your treatment area, you may be asked to undress to expose the area. You will be asked to wear a special set of protective goggles to shield your eyes from the laser. Next, the laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.
You may feel a warm sensation followed by a cooling sensation from the sapphire plate. The procedure shouldn’t be painful. Best of all, laser hair removal aftercare is minimal. After treatment, you may notice some redness or swelling. Your practitioner will advise you on the best way to treat these minor effects. After treatment, you can resume your regular activities. There is no downtime at all! If needed, you can resume shaving three days after treatment. Be sure to avoid prolonged sun exposure.
Forever Bare BBL™ Results
A series of treatments is required for maximum results. This is due to individual hair growing at different rates and through different cycles. However, you will be able to notice the thinning and eventual disappearance of the hair between three and six sessions, depending on the size of your treatment area and the coarseness of the hair you want to be removed. For example, laser hair removal for your face may take fewer treatment sessions than for your legs or bikini area.
Forever Bare BBL™ also comes with multiple spot size adapters to allow your practitioner to treat large areas rapidly and small areas precisely. The laser is lightning fast, taking about a fraction of a second to treat multiple hairs at once. Small treatment areas such as the upper lip can take less than a minute per treatment session. Larger treatment areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
What are the Risks of Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is safe, fast, and effective. However, risks of side effects may vary based on skin type, skin condition, hair color, and adherence to pre-treatment and post-treatment instructions. Common side effects include minor skin irritation, redness, or swelling, which disappears a few hours after treatment.
A change in skin color has also been reported as laser hair removal can potentially darken or lighten the skin of the treatment area. This typically occurs in individuals who do not avoid sun exposure before or after treatment.
Patients who are pregnant, who have serious skin conditions, or who may have skin infections around the treatment area are not considered good candidates for laser hair removal.
Serious risks are rare but may include blistering, scarring, or change to skin texture. Laser hair removal is not recommended for eyebrows or eyelids due to the proximity of the laser to the eye. When receiving any type of laser hair removal treatment, you will be provided a set of specialized goggles to wear to protect your eyes from the laser light frequencies.
Despite these rare risks, Forever Bare BBL™ has been deemed one of the safest laser hair removal procedures out there.
