Most at-home and professional devices that provide laser hair treatments use IPL or Intense Pulsed Light technology. BBL, or Broad Band Light, is a trademarked name for an IPL machine from Sciton that works in a different way than most hair removal devices.
The majority of hair removal machines concentrate all of their energy on a specific area in order to target a specific group of follicles. The Forever Bare BBL treatment from Sciton differs by sending a higher repitition of lower stream of pulses in order to minimize issues that commonly surface with IPL treatments.
Forever Bare BBL is an alternative to waxing, tweezing and shaving that promises to be pain-free and long-lasting. In order to keep skin comfortable during treatment, the Forever Bare BBL handpiece includes a thermoelectrically cooled sapphire plate that provides cooling before, during and after a session.
