If you have unwanted hair on your body, you have probably already spent many hours on hair removal treatments that only last a few days or weeks. At The Skin Retreat in Little Rock, AR, we have a different solution! We can remove hair anywhere on your body once and for all with our laser hair removal services. Whether you are looking for bikini laser hair removal or you want smooth legs without the hassle of shaving, BBL® Forever Bare™ can provide permanent hair removal without downtime.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a type of treatment that uses light energy to target and destroy hair follicles in the skin. As a gentle and non-invasive treatment, it can reduce unwanted hair virtually anywhere. This cosmetic treatment can save you many hours of shaving, waxing, applying depilatory creams, or plucking your hair. While you will need several sessions to achieve a smooth result, the results last much longer than other types of hair removal, and the treatment can even be less painful.
What Platform Do We Use?
At our practice, we use the BBL Forever Bare platform for laser hair removal treatments. We love this platform because it offers better and more comfortable treatments for our patients. This treatment is a type of intense pulsed light treatment, but it offers even better technology.
How Does BBL Forever Bare Work?
BBL Forever Bare features a type of technology called BBL or broadband light technology. This technology is the gold standard for IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments and offers many benefits that other platforms don’t provide.
During treatment, the handpiece delivers several low-frequency pulses of light. These pulses have a high repetition rate which can make the treatment go much faster and can offer greater, more efficient coverage.
The light, which is customized before the treatment to fit your skin and hair tone, works to remove hair by targeting the melanin that is in the hair shaft. This causes the follicle in the area to be heated at a temperature that damages the hair follicle without affecting the surrounding tissue.
The damaged follicle sheds the hair in the following weeks and then is no longer able to produce any more hair. Once a hair follicle is damaged, it is unlikely to reactivate again.
What Makes BBL® Forever Bare Different?
Fewer Missed Spots
With other types of laser hair removal services, there is sometimes a possibility of missing a spot. This can lead to having to schedule more treatments to target all of the hair in the area you are wanting to treat. This efficiency is due to BBL Forever Bare’s unique in-motion technology, and it can lead to fewer treatment sessions.
Greater Patient Comfort
Comfort is built into this laser hair removal treatment with the addition of the cooling sapphire chill tip. As we perform our permanent hair removal services, the surface of the skin is kept cooler. This makes the process more comfortable and reduces skin irritation after the treatment.
BBL Forever Bare features adapters that can quickly be changed to treat different areas. Using this device, we can treat large flat areas as well as smaller contoured areas simply by changing the adapter.
Can Be Used Anywhere
BBL Forever Bare is a great bikini laser hair removal option that is much gentler than a bikini wax or shaving and won’t leave irritated bumps or razor burns. It can also be used on other areas such as the legs, face, chest, armpits, arms, back, and more. As long as you have hair that is dark enough to treat, this treatment could offer you the results you are looking for.
Offers Permanent Results
Most treatments don’t offer permanent results. However, professional laser hair removal is considered a permanent hair removal solution. Even if hair does grow back in the area, it will often be much finer and harder to see. However, in order to achieve these results, you will have to schedule several sessions.
What to Expect From Your Laser Hair Removal
When compared to other professional laser hair removal services, BBL Forever Bare offers one of the most comfortable experiences. During treatment, you may feel some warmth or a prickling sensation. However, it is often described as painless even when patients are not using numbing cream. We can offer topical anesthetic if you are nervous about your laser hair removal. There is no downtime for these treatments so you can return to your regular activities.
When Can You See Laser Hair Removal Results?
It can take some time for your laser hair removal results to become apparent. After your first treatment, you may notice that some of the hair falls out easily on its own. At first, it may seem like the hairs are growing, but then they will begin to fall out. One treatment will only affect a percentage of your hair. Any follicles that are regressing or resting will not be treated. Patients typically need 5-6 treatments before 80-90% of their hair is treated.
