BBL Hair Removal
What is BBL Hair Removal?
BBL Hair Removal (aka Forever Bare BBL™) is an innovative technology that uses pulsed light energy to target, heat, and destroy hair follicles. Typically, you can expect 60-90% hair reduction.
BBL (BroadBand Light™) is the fastest, most comfortable, and safest hair removal option because it uses low pulses of light energy at high repetition. Traditionally, other hair removal devices use all of their energy at one time, in one area.
Why BBL Hair Removal?
- Even coverage with minimal missed areas of hair
- Less painful and safer than laser hair removal
- Removes unwanted hair
- Removes ingrown hair
