BBL Laser for Hair Removal

BBL™ is an intense pulsed light system that can selectively target structures such as hair follicles. BBL™ permanent hair reduction is very effective for lighter skin types.

More information about BBL Laser Hair Removal

Unwanted hair can be a source of frustration for many, and it’s quite normal to be fed up with shaving, waxing, and plucking. 

What is BBL Laser?

BBL, or BroadBand Light, is a therapy using intense pulsed light to target hair follicles. BBL Laser is an effective method for eliminating unwanted hair with little to no discomfort and downtime. BBL Laser Hair Removal treatments are performed in-office and are a fast alternative to other forms of hair removal. 

At Skincredible Dermatology in Orange County, our team uses the BBL applicator (hair removal laser) to deliver light energy to the skin in quick bursts. Light energy is delivered to the hair follicles at a high rate of repetition which makes the treatment safe, fast, and comfortable.

BBL Laser treatments offer hair removal for:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Face
  • Bikini Line
  • Underarms

BBL Laser treatments can be individualized to each patient’s specific skin type and hair removal needs. The safe and effective treatment can stop hair growth from the root and leave clients feeling confident. 

How do BBL Laser treatments compare to other hair removal methods?

The innovative treatment is different from past hair removal devices as it uses multiple high-energy pulses at a higher repetition rate - this allows the treatment to safely target a larger area faster. BBL treatments use even heating of hair follicles in the targeted area ensuring that no unwanted hairs are missed during the laser application. 

BBL Laser can target large areas of the body and is a more permanent solution that replaces temporary hair removal methods. 

What should you expect during and after BBL Hair Removal?

During the treatment, patients experience a “prickly” sensation on the skin. After the treatment, patients may experience a sunburn-like feeling on the skin. Some areas of the body will be more sensitive than others. The treatment works best on skin that is shaved on the day of treatment. Patients should plan to wear clothing that allows easy access to the area being treated.

At Skincredible Dermatology, our team ensures a safe and comfortable laser treatment procedure. After the in-office laser treatment, patients can get back to a regular daily routine.

There is little to no recovery time involved. Some patients experience mild redness or swelling in the treated area that lasts for around 48 hours. There is also a risk of small red bumps near the treated area that will subside within a couple of weeks.

Is BBL Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

BBL treatments typically result in some hair loss, and permanent hair reduction can often be achieved through several treatments. BBL Laser Hair Removal can result in up to 80% reduction of unwanted hair.

The number of treatments required for permanent hair removal depends on the patients’ skin type and the amount of hair being treated. After several treatments, the hair often becomes lighter, thinner, and more manageable.
