BroadBand Light (BBL)™ is a revolutionary treatment that takes hair removal to the next level. BBL comfortably and safely removes unwanted hair, leaving your skin looking and feeling smooth and soft. Using controlled flashes of light to penetrate the skin, BBL damages the hair follicle to prevent regrowth.
The Sciton® BBL technology delivers a combination of benefits that are not available with other hair removal devices, including comfort, safety, and superior results.
BBL hair removal is a light-based treatment that targets the melanin (the pigment that gives your hair color) in your hair follicles. It evenly heats hair follicles throughout the treatment area, minimizing the areas that are often missed with other traditional hair removal treatments. A set of spot-size adaptors allow us to treat large areas treated quickly, and smaller areas with high precision.
Hair has three phases of growth, and these cycles vary with the location on the body. BBL hair removal can only remove hair that is in its active growth phase; therefore multiple treatments are needed. On average, about four to eight treatments can achieve optimal results. These treatments are performed every four to eight weeks, depending on the area to be addressed.

How long will my treatment take?
BBL hair removal in Houston is ideal if you have a Fitzpatrick skin type of I-IV. These skin types range from pale white to darker white to light brown skin.
After your hair removal treatment, your skin may appear mildly red where your treatment was done. This will usually last for a few hours, sometimes longer, but is common. You will notice the density of your hair will thin after each treatment, and will gradually fall out. After you have completed your series of treatments, you will see a majority of the unwanted hair gone.
You should plan on protecting the treated area from the sun for a few weeks, but you can return to exercising and any other routines immediately following your treatment.
The length of your procedure will depend on the size of the area you are treating. The lip area can take as little as five minutes, and the back, legs, or arms can take about 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
