What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive and convenient way to reduce unwanted facial or body hair, leaving the skin looking smooth and silky. At Pacific Coast Aesthetics, we use Broad Band Light (BBL) technology to quickly, safely, and effectively reduce unwanted hair with no downtime. Forever Bare BBL™ uses a combination of light and motion technology that works by heating the hair follicles to remove unwanted hair.
How many treatments are needed for Laser Hair Removal?
A total of six treatments are usually recommended. Treatments are spaced four to six weeks apart, depending on the treatment area. Following completion of the treatment series, most patients experience significant long-term reduction in unwanted hair within the treatment area. Since hair grows in cycles and not all hair follicles are affected by each treatment, some patients may need to return for single-treatment touch-ups as needed.
What can I expect from the Laser Hair Removal treatment?
Forever Bare BBL™ is conveniently performed in our office and can be completed in about 10-15 minutes. On the day of your treatment, we recommend that you shave the area prior to coming to the office. If needed, we can also shave the area for you. A topical gel is applied before and during treatment to help keep you comfortable. You will be given special goggles to wear during the treatment to protect your eyes from the light. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. Some patients with sensitive skin may experience a mild skin reaction immediately after the procedure, which can be treated by your provider with topical medication. You will be able to resume your normal activities on the same day as your treatment.
It is recommended that you avoid tanning beds and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight for six weeks following your Forever Bare BBL. We also recommend daily use of a broad-spectrum SPF45 sunscreen.
How permanent is Laser Hair Removal?
Forever Bare BBL™ uses broad band light to damage hair follicles and reduce unwanted hair with long-lasting results. Individual results may vary. Since hair grows in cycles and not all hair follicles are affected by each treatment, some patients may require occasional single-treatment touch-ups, as needed.
