The Dermatology Clinic offers Sciton BBL™ Hair Reduction treatment for those who have endured years of dealing with unwanted hair. Sciton, a leader in aesthetic lasers and lights, has created one of the most powerful intense pulsed light hair reduction treatments on the market. If you are ready for a more permanent hair reduction solution instead of shaving or waxing, then this treatment may be right for you. Learn more about the benefits of Sciton BBL™ Hair Reduction.
Sciton BBL™ Hair Reduction uses emitting light that passes through the skin and is absorbed by the hair follicle. That light targets the pigment within the follicle, essentially damaging the root and removing the hair permanently.
For most patients, the removal process isn’t painful; many feel a prickly sensation, like a tiny rubber band snapping at your skin. You’ll likely get small red bumps surrounding the hair follicles after treatment, but they should subside after about two weeks. Sciton BBL™ technology is safe to be used throughout the body, with the most commonly treated spots being the face, underarms, bikini area, and legs.
Unlike other laser treatments on the market, Sciton BBL™ technology is more precise, making it easier to target large areas of the skin. The intense pulsed light evenly heats hair follicles, which can help eliminate large “missed spot” areas. You may begin seeing permanent hair loss after three sessions, but results will vary depending on the amount of hair being removed and your response to treatment. While Sciton BBL™ Hair Reduction treatment won’t completely remove all hair, it can reduce it up to 80%.
Sciton BBL™ Hair Reduction is best suited for light skin types with darker body hair. Candidates with light or gray hair are not ideal, as the treatment is not as effective. Consult with a dermatologist or aesthetician before trying any hair removal treatment—they can best advise you on what procedure works with your hair and skin type.
