Hair removal in Southgate Ridge is one of those topics that clients often have questions about. Sarasota Facial Aesthetics offers BBL/IPL for permanent hair removal in Southgate Ridge area.
What is BBL/IPL Permanent Hair Reduction
Permanent hair removal is achieved by light-based technology. This includes laser hair removal or hair removal with Broad Band Light (BBL) or Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology. At Sarasota Facial Aesthetics in the Southgate Ridge area, we utilize the state of the art Sciton BBL technology.
What is the difference between BBL/IPL and Laser Hair Removal?
BBL or IPL is a broadband light that emits energy with carefully timed pulses. Laser hair removal technology emits light in a sudden burst of energy.
How does BBL/IPL Hair Removal work?
BBL or IPL hair removal works by emitting pulses of intense light into the targeted hair follicles. The light is converted to heat. The heat loosens the hair and disrupts the cells responsible for growing new hair. 100% removal cannot be guaranteed with any hair removal technology. BBL hair removal has shown significant permanent hair reduction over other methods.
How many BBL/IPL hair removal treatments are needed?
Typically, you need 6 – 8 BBL hair removal treatments to achieve goals. Hair texture, color and your skin type may require several more session.
Does BBL/IPL hair removal work on blonde or gray hair?
The lighter the hair the more difficult it is to treat. All Laser, IPL or BBL hair removal technology is poor at treating blonde hair.
Can I sunbathe with BBL hair removal?
No sunbathing, tanning beds or self-tanning products.
Does BBL/IPL Hair removal hurt?
Patients state BBL hair removal feels like a band snapping effect. Numbing cream is used to alleviate some discomfort.
