Forever Bare BBL – Hair Reduction
~ The Most Comfortable & Safest Hair Removal Option
Forever Bare BBL is a revolutionary technology in hair removal. Traditionally, hair removal devices apply all of their energy to any given area all at once. By sending multiple lower fluence pulses at a high repetition rate, Forever Bare BBL provides a treatment that is safe, fast, efficacious, and comfortable. The motion BBL technology allows for extremely even heating of hair follicles and minimizes missed areas that occur with traditional hair removal devices.
By providing energy in multiple bursts instead of all at once, Forever Bare BBL keeps the skin protected and progressively raises the follicle temperature to the therapeutic level for hair removal.
Multiple spot size adapters allow the user to treat large areas quickly and small areas precisely. Smoothie adapters soften the edges of the treatment head to make the treatment more comfortable when using the motion technique.
MOST SKIN TYPES
By increasing the temperature of the follicle to therapeutic levels gradually and keeping the skin protected with cooling, Forever Bare BBL can effectively treat up to skin type V.
BBL BroadBand Light technology utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent phototherapy results. By selecting the appropriate wavelength or filter, the technician will be able to treat a broad range of skin conditions caused by skin aging and sun damage. The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas coagulates tissue to variable depth. This process helps restore the skin to its natural state. BBL will gently be absorbed by the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions in the upper layers of the skin. In addition, the photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.
Over the next few days the pigmented lesions will darken and fall off. The BBL procedure allows patients to experience quick recovery with smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin, and an immediate change in skin texture and tightness.
Laser or light energy is selectively absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin resulting in heating of the blood vessels. With the correct wavelengths and fluence, the vascular lesion will be heated to above 70 oC. At that temperature, blood vessels will break down and shrink which leads to a reduction of the vascular lesion with. Patients resume normal activities immediately.
Sciton® SkinTyte™ uses pulsed light technology to heat the deep layers of skin, creating a firmer, more youthful appearance for patients experiencing wrinkles, sagging and other unwanted signs of aging. This treatment can be safely and effectively performed on nearly any area of the body where sagging or laxity has occurred. Patients often seek treatment for their face, neck, abdomen and arms.
During the SkinTyte procedure, the device is moved across the skin of the targeted area to heat the collagen deep within the skin, which stimulates its production and gradually firms the skin for a renewed and refreshed appearance. The light used during this procedure does not cause any damage to the surface of the skin. Most patients achieve their desired results after four treatment sessions spaced one month apart. Your doctor will determine how many treatments are needed for you based on a thorough evaluation of your skin and treatment goals. Each session usually takes about 30 minutes, depending on the size and location of the targeted area.
There is no downtime associated with the SkinTyte procedure, as patients can return to work immediately after their treatment. You may experience mild redness after each session, but this usually subsides within a few minutes.
Acne + Acne Scar Treatment
Acne is a disorder resulting from the action of hormones and other substances on the skin’s oil glands, sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) are the anaerobic bacterium that causes acne. Severe acne can lead to permanent scarring.
With proper treatment, the procedure will lead to collagen remodeling, proliferation of active fibroblasts, and treating over-acting sebaceous glands that result in the reduction of acne and improve acne scarring non-abrasively.
