What is BBL BroadBand Light™ for hair reduction?
BBL is a new light-based technology that uses short pulses of light to target unwanted hair follicles in the skin and disables or destroy them. It is a noninvasive treatment and a great solution for the problem of unwanted hair.
How does BBL™ work?
BBL™ uses photothermal energy and delivers it specifically to your hair follicles. Because all skin and hair types are different, it can be hard for one laser hair removal solution to work for everyone. By adjusting the wavelength of the light in nanometers, we are able to target your specific hair follicles, meaning BBL™ is a unique solution that is tailored specifically for you.
BBL™ cuts off the supply of nutrients to the hair follicle in the growth stage, this disables the hair growth. Because hair periodically goes from the growth stage to other stages, more than one treatment of BBL™ is necessary to remove all unwanted hair. We will design a treatment schedule that will effectively work for your unique skin type and hair removal location.
What areas can be treated?
BBL™ is safe and effective, and can be used on most any part of the body including your face, neck, bikini line, legs, arms and underarms.
Can tanned skin be treated?
BBL™ is not appropriate for skin that has been actively tanned via the sun or tanning beds. Heavily tanned skin may contain too much pigment or melanin which will decrease the effectiveness of the BBL™ treatment. It is recommended that for a period of three weeks prior to treatment, the area to be treated has reduced exposure to the sun. Self tanners must be faded, or removed, from the skin for a period of at least 10 days before BBL™ treatment can be performed.
