Hair removal is a pain (sometimes both figuratively and literally). Shaving is tedious and time-consuming. Waxing is uncomfortable and expensive. Depilatory creams are messy and can irritate your skin. And tweezing each unwanted hair individually? Forget about it.

At Levitt Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Scott Levitt offers laser hair removal to his patients using the versatile BBL system from Sciton. This FDA-cleared, cutting-edge device offers distinct advantages over standard laser hair removal and results that far surpass what can be achieved at home. With a series of BBL Forever Bare treatments, Dr. Levitt can help your skin feel smooth and summer-ready, all year round.

What Is BBL Forever Bare?

BBL stands for broadband light — a technology that has many applications in aesthetic medicine. The BBL device features different light wavelengths that can be selected for different treatments. In addition to BBL Forever Bare for hair removal, we perform BBL Forever Clear treatments and BBL Forever Young treatments to improve acne, pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, sun damage, uneven skin texture and early signs of aging.

While BBL Forever Bare is similar to traditional IPL (intense pulsed light), it’s the safest, most effective, most advanced device of its kind, with results that no IPL can match. Practically any part of the body can be treated, even sensitive ones, and the treatment can be customized to your skin color, hair color and hair density.

Benefits Of BBL Forever Bare

There are numerous reasons why BBL Forever Bare is the hair removal method of choice for many patients of Levitt Medical Aesthetics:

  • Multiple wavelengths of light can cover a larger treatment area than standard laser hair removal
  • Can remove hair on nearly any area of the face or body
  • Treatments are performed in our office and do not usually require any anesthesia
  • Built-in cooling mechanism enhances patient comfort during treatment
  • Customization options ensure patients get treatments that are tailored to their needs
  • Safe and effective on a broader range of skin types and tones than other laser devices
  • Many treatments can be completed in just 20 minutes

How Hair Removal With BBL Forever Bare Works

BBL Forever Bare emits intense pulsed light that targets hair follicles beneath the skin’s surface. When the light energy reaches its target, it generates heat that destroys the hair follicles without harming the surrounding tissues. BBL Forever Bare is different from conventional laser hair removal systems because it uses broad-spectrum visible light, rather than a single, concentrated wavelength. This critical difference means treatments with BBL Forever Bare can be faster and more comfortable, and are less likely to result in unintentionally missed areas.

BBL Forever Bare vs Traditional IPL

BBL Forever Bare is similar in its basic mechanism to traditional IPL, but key differences make BBL Forever Bare our preferred hair reduction treatment. Both devices work by directing light energy into the follicles, where it is converted to heat and causes damage so hair growth stops. The BBL system is more customizable, allowing the practitioner to provide treatments that are precisely customized for the patient. This higher degree of accuracy yields better, faster results. In addition, the motion technique used to administer a BBL Forever Bare treatment allows the practitioner to deliver an overall higher energy into the skin. This also increases the speed at which results are seen. Though it is both faster and more powerful, BBL Forever Bare is a more comfortable treatment than traditional IPL.

Best Candidates for BBL Forever Bare

BBL Forever Bare is appropriate for women and men of almost any age who would like long-lasting hair reduction. It can be used to treat unsightly hair on most areas of the body, including:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Legs
  • Bikini Area

Most skin colors can safely undergo hair removal with BBL Forever Bare, but it is not recommended for tanned skin. It is also not recommended for women who are pregnant. Dr. Levitt will assess your skin, your aesthetic goals and your health history at your consultation to ensure you are a candidate for the procedure.

About the BBL Forever Bare Procedure

BBL Forever Bare treatments are performed using a specialized handpiece that is held against the skin while it emits pulses of light that travel to the hair follicles. You may feel a warm sensation as the light penetrates your skin. Most patients find that it is tolerable without anesthetic, but if you are concerned about your sensitivity level, you can choose to have a topical numbing cream applied first. The handpiece provides continuous cooling to keep your skin safe and comfortable until your treatment is complete. Many sessions can be finished in less than half an hour, but treatment lengths vary depending on the size and number of areas to be covered.

After Your BBL Forever Bare Treatment

There is no required downtime following a BBL Forever Bare treatment. You can return to home or work right away, and may apply makeup if your treatment involved your face. You might notice some redness or flushing of the skin, but it typically subsides within a matter of hours. Carefully protect your skin from sun exposure for at least a few days. Dr. Levitt will give you instructions regarding how to properly care for your skin after treatment to ensure the best results.
