Laser Hair Removal
If you are frustrated with at-home hair removal products that don’t work or cause ingrown hairs, razor burns, or skin irritation, consider laser hair removal. This highly effective treatment eliminates excess or unwanted hair without the need for frequent maintenance.
We offer Forever Bare BBL®, a device that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy for easy and long-lasting laser hair removal. People who come to our Frisco, TX, med spa for hair reduction experience softer, smoother skin after treatment.
What is Forever Bare BBL?
This light-based treatment uses pulses of energy to heat the hair follicle, inhibiting its growth. The pulsed light energy targets the pigment in the hair follicle without harming the surrounding skin. Targeted hair must be brown or black, but the treatment is suitable for most skin types.
What areas of the body can you treat with laser hair removal?
You can use laser hair removal to reduce unwanted hair on nearly any area of your body, including the:
- Upper lip
- Bikini area
A Reputation Built on Results
Is laser hair removal the same as BBL treatments?
Traditional laser hair removal treatments focus a steady stream of energy on the treatment area. In contrast, BBL hair removal treatments use controlled rapid pulses of energy to target the hair follicles. These quick pulses of energy and Forever Bare BBL’s cooling sapphire chill tip make for a more comfortable treatment than typical laser hair removal devices. Customizable to your specific needs, Forever Bare BBL evenly heats the treatment area for comprehensive coverage.
How permanent is laser hair removal?
Forever Bare BBL results are long-lasting, as the hair is damaged at the source. It can remove up to 80% to 90% of hair in the treated area with 5 to 6 treatments—although individual results will vary. Schedule 1 to 2 yearly touch-up treatments to maintain your hair removal results.
What Is Recovery Like After Laser Hair Removal?
Although no downtime is needed after laser hair removal, you may experience some redness for a few hours after the treatment. Be gentle with your skin and avoid skincare products containing retinoids or acids, as they irritate the treated areas and cause discoloration. Stay away from the sun for 1 to 2 weeks, if possible, and use sunscreen with an SPF of 35 or higher if you go outside.
It’s also a good idea to stop wearing makeup for the first 24 hours after your treatment, as your skin will feel sensitive.
When Can I See Results From My Treatment?
You may see results immediately after your treatment, depending on the area and the color and thickness of your hair. Most patients see a reduction of 10 to 25 percent of hair after the first treatment, and those results continue to improve with each subsequent session.
Many people choose to enhance their hair reduction results with other nonsurgical skin treatments, such as SkinPen® microneedling or HydraFacial®, to improve the color, texture, and tone of their now nearly bare skin.
