Lasers and broadband light (BBL) are light based technologies that can provide a means of permanent hair reduction. At VitaNovu we utilize Scitons state of the art BBL technology to provide a safe, comfortable, and effective hair removal treatment.
BBL hair removal works by emitting intense pulses of light at selected wavelengths to target the pigment within the hair follicle while leaving the surrounding skin intact. Light is converted to heat at the base of the follicle and selectively disrupts the cells that cause hair growth in their active growth phase. The hair follicles that are in the dormant phase are not affected by the treatment. Since hair follicles are at various stages within the growth cycle at any given time, repeat treatments are necessary to ensure that all of the hair follicles become a target. Growth phases change approximately every 4-6 weeks, requiring treatments to occur on the same cycle. Thus, it is typical to require 6-8 treatments over the course of 6-12 months to achieve desired results. The procedure is virtually pain free and requires no anesthesia or downtime.
Benefits of BBL Hair Removal
- A non-invasive, gentle technique that reduces undesirable hair from most parts of the body
- Treats larger areas effectively because it disables more than one hair at a time
- May make skin color and complexion more uniform
- Minimal discomfort
- Replaces waxing, electrolysis, shaving and bleaching
- No downtime
Treatments start at $50 and there is a 20% discount offered when a series of 6 or more are purchased. The best time of year to do BBL hair removal is in the winter months when there is minimal or no sun exposure to the skin. This allows the hair pigment to stand out and be treated more quickly and effectively. The area being treated should be shaved the night before or day of the treatment.
