About Forever Bare BBL™
Forever Bare BBL from Sciton is a revolutionary technology in hair removal. Traditionally, hair removal devices apply all of their energy to any given area all at once. By sending multiple lower fluence pulses at a high repetition rate, Forever Bare BBL provides a treatment that is safe, fast, efficacious, and comfortable. The motion BBL technology allows for extremely even heating of hair follicles and minimizes missed areas that occur with traditional hair removal devices.
How does Forever Bare BBL permanently reduce unwanted hair?
Pulsed light delivers photothermal energy to hair follicles. The rapid, short pulses of light or photothermal energy causes the hair follicle to stop producing hair without harming any surrounding tissue.
What areas can be treated?
Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are the face, under arms, arms, legs, bikini area, chest, shoulders and back.
How do the Forever Bare BBL treatments feel?
Treatments are comfortable and safe. A cooling system soothes the skin, so the treatment is delivered with minimal or no discomfort. Personal sensitivity varies from patient to patient. Discuss your sensitivity with your healthcare provider before treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 3-5 treatments applied at 4-6 week intervals to achieve optimal benet. Long-term results depend on multiple factors such as hair thickness, the area treated and the hair’s growth cycle. Hair grows in three stages: anagen, catagen and telogen. Forever Bare BBL predominantly treats hairs in the anagen phase, also known as the active growth phase. 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.
What happens during the procedure?
A clear gel will be applied to the skin. Then, the BBL energy is delivered with a cooled applicator. Your treatment provider may choose to glide the applicator on the skin or stamp it. 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.
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 slightly longer. Talk to your healthcare provider regarding your options.
How long will it take to recover?
Forever Bare BBL is a comfortable treatment with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you can resume your normal daily activities immediately.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following your treatment, you may experience some redness that should go away 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. Consult with your healthcare provider for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
What aftercare will I need?
Minimal aftercare is needed. Keep the treated area clean, use a sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 when outdoors and follow your healthcare provider’s instructions. Ask your healthcare provider if Forever Bare BBL is right for you!
