Forever Young BBL is a comfortable treatment to remove unwanted hair for all skin types. The treatment uses pulsed light to deliver photothermal energy causing the hair follicle to stop producing hair without damaging the surrounding tissue. It typically requires 6 to 8 treatments applied between 4 to 8 weeks apart depending on the area being treated. During the treatment a thin layer of clear gel is applied to the skin and the BBL energy is delivered with a cooled applicator so there is minimal to no discomfort and virtually no downtime. Prior to being treated, it is important to shave the area being treated. It is also important to avoid sun exposure, tanning, and the use of self-tanners while undergoing treatments with lasers.
