What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal can be a long-term solution for unwanted hair for those looking for an alternative to waxing, shaving, and plucking. Laser hair removal has improved in technology from where it was when first FDA-approved in the 90s. The older lasers were painful, slow and only worked on people with dark hair. Today, there are lasers that are specifically designed for various skin tones and hair types. Typically, it only takes a series of a few sessions for permanent hair removal. Most often, clients see results after their first time.
What kind of laser hair removal technology?
At Glo, we have the latest technology in laser hair removal, Forever Bare BBL(broad band light), 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. https://sciton.com/physicians/forever-bare-bbl/
The most comfortable treatment available
In addition to the moving motion technology of the broad band light, there is a cooled sapphire plate on the Forever Bare BBL handpiece which provides continuous cooling, even at maximum power, to keep the skin cool and comfortable before, during and after treatment.
Speed, Safety and Flexibility
A large 15 x 45 mm plate has the highest power that allows for extremely fast treatment times. In addition, by providing energy in multiple bursts instead of all at once, Forever Bare BBL keeps the skin protected and progressively raises the hair follicle temperature to the therapeutic level for optimal laser hair removal. Multiple spot size adapters allow the user to treat large areas quickly and small areas precisely. Smoothie adapters soften the edges of the treatment head to make the treatment more comfortable when using the motion technique.
Is Laser Hair Removal for my skin type?
By increasing the temperature of the hair follicle to therapeutic levels while keeping the skin protected with cooling, Forever Bare BBL can effectively treat several skin types for laser hair removal.
