The nitty-gritty.

At BeFlawless in East Greenwich, RI you can now effectively remove unwanted hair on any area of the body to reveal beautiful skin. Forever Bare BBL (BroadBand Light) is the revolutionary new treatment that allows you to say goodbye to the hassle and discomfort of shaving, painful waxing, and tweezing.

Our Forever Bare BBL Series includes six treatments with 4-6 weeks between each treatment.

Treatment area options

Any area of your body can be treated with Forever Bare BBL. The most common areas are:

  • Face
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area
  • Chest
  • Shoulders
  • Back

How it works

Using BBL energy to gently heat the hair follicles, the Forever Bare BBL treatment is as comfortable as a hot stone massage. The result is hair removal that’s more comfortable, safer, and faster than other traditional treatments.

Hair grows in three stages: anagen, catagen and telogen. Forever Bare BBL predominantly treats hair in the anagen phase, also known as the active growth phase. Since not all hairs are in the same growth stage at the same time, multiple treatments are necessary to target all hair in the treatment site.

BBL’s rapid pulses of light cause the hair follicle to stop producing hair, without harming any surrounding tissue. Treatment time varies depending on the size of the area being treated, as well as your hair and skin type. Typically, a small area takes only a few minutes, while a large area can take 15 minutes or longer.

What to expect

During treatments, a clear gel will be applied to your skin, then a cooled applicator will deliver the BBL energy to hair follicles. We may glide the applicator or stamp it, depending on the size and location of the area being treated. Some patients experience a warm or mild stinging sensation in the treatment area. Personal sensitivity varies for each patient, and you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your sensitivity with your BeFlawless clinician.

Forever Bare BBL is a safe, gentle treatment with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you can resume your normal activities immediately. Right after your treatment, you may have some redness that should go away within a few hours. A few days after a treatment, you may notice what appears to be hair regrowth. These hairs are actually being shed as a result of your treatment and are not growing back. Long-term results will depend on multiple factors, such as hair thickness, the area treated, and your hair’s growth cycle.

Your Flawless clinician will let you know what to expect after a treatment, and provide you with an aftercare plan to follow, such as avoiding direct sun exposure and using sunscreen.
