Small Area Laser Hair Removal
BroadBand Light (BBL) is an innovative light-based technology that utilizes pulses of light energy to gently penetrate into the skin and specifically target and disable unwanted hair follicles. Laser hair removal can be used on small areas on the face, medium area such as underarms or large areas such as the back and legs. Treatments are fast, easy and are accompanied by minimal discomfort.BBL delivers excellent photothermal energy to hair follicles. By selecting the appropriate wavelength for hair reduction (e.g. 590 nm, 640 nm, or 695 nm), your clinician will be able to tailor the treatment to your skin type in order to achieve optimal results.
HOW DOES BBL WORK?
Hair grows in three stages, and when hair is in the anagen stage (growth) it is most vulnerable to light therapy. BBL selectively heats the full length of the imbedded hair follicle cutting off its supply of nutrients, thus disabling its growth. Because all hair is not always in the anagen stage at one time, multiple treatments must be given over time to treat it while it is in the anagen stage. Your clinician will design a treatment series to reflect your desire for hair reduction in particular body locations.
