Broad Band Light, or BBL for short, is a phototherapy laser skin treatment that uses light energy to correct and reverse the signs of aging, acne, acne scarring, and other skin concerns.

How does BBL laser hair removal work?

BBL is a revolutionary technology that removes hair by sending multiple, quick low-fluence pulses evenly across the skin’s surface for minimal missed areas. The product is known for its efficacy (ability to work), comfort, safety, and quick treatment times.

Is BBL laser safe?

Traditional laser hair removal technologies use higher energy bursts that occur all at once, which heats the follicles all at once. The BBL laser uses the latest technology to provide several quick, lower energy bursts instead, which help better protect your skin and keep you safe.

How do you reduce swelling after laser hair removal?

Speak to your dermatologist after your procedure to determine the best steps for reducing swelling after your laser hair removal. Depending on your skin type and the kind of laser hair removal you have undergone, your dermatologist might recommend applying ice to the treated area. If you notice any severe reactions other than inflammation, contact your dermatologist as soon as you can.

Can I put deodorant on after laser hair removal?

Yes. You can apply deodorant after having laser hair removal. However, you should wait about a day to allow your skin to fully recover and to avoid irritation. Check with your dermatologist for more details.

Can I shave the day of laser hair removal?

Ask your dermatologist exactly when you should shave before your laser hair removal treatment. The specific time frame that you should shave may vary depending on the specific kind of hair removal you are undergoing. However, for most people, shaving 1-2 days before your hair removal treatment is best. This is because the laser hair removal procedure specifically targets hair that is actively growing, and shaving can stimulate hair growth.

What should you not do before laser hair removal?

  • Avoid hair removal that targets removal at the hair’s root (like plucking) before treatment

Check with your dermatologist during your appointment before applying anything to newly-treated skin.

How long does laser hair removal last on legs?

For most people, laser hair removal is not entirely permanent. Usually, between 6 and 8 treatments are needed before leg hair shows noticeable improvement. After that, you may still need to have a touch up laser hair removal every bi-annually or annually to maintain results.
