BBL Forever Bare
Sciton® BroadBand Light™ Forever Bare uses a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue. The light delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat which is attracted to the pigment contained in the hair follicle, thus destroying it while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
One of the key features of the Sciton BBL Forever Bare is the Cool Comfort Technology – a patented technology that provides each patient with increased comfort and safety. The Cool Comfort Technology protects the upper layers of your skin with a cooling burst of cryogen. It is considered best in class cooling for improved performance during long procedures and improved patient comfort.
Multiple sessions are required because hair grows in cycles. The number of treatments required depends upon your skin color, hair color and coarseness of the hair. The treatment is only effective on hairs that are in the active growth cycle, therefore multiple treatments are necessary.
Most areas require 3-5 treatments applied at 4-6 week intervals to achieve optimal benefit. Long-term results depend on multiple factors such as hair thickness, the area treated, and the hair growth cycle.
Most skin types can usually be treated, but candidates with lighter skin and darker hair typically require fewer sessions. People with darker skin may require more sessions for effective results to be achieved.
Blond, red, grey or white hair does not work. The reason for this is there is no melanin in the hair follicle and hence, no target for the light.
