Constantly removing unwanted hair from the face and body can be a chore, and unwanted or excess hair can be not only bothersome but also a source of self-consciousness. Unfortunately, traditional hair removal methods, such as shaving, plucking, waxing, and depilatory creams, often cause discomfort or provide only short-term relief. Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, our experienced physician, offers an innovative alternative. Available for use on nearly any body area, Broadband Light-based hair removal is designed to provide virtually painless, permanent hair reduction for most skin types. This advanced approach may be right for you if you are tired of the conventional removal options.

What is BBL hair removal?
Available at our sister practice, Afterglow Skincare, Broadband Light (BBL) technology can provide the gentlest and least-invasive hair removal experience possible. The Sciton Forever Bare BBL™ system is considered the gold standard in light-based technology, and this device is capable of producing between 85 and 95 percent clearance after approximately six treatments.
We strive to provide you with the most effective and comfortable treatment, and every hair removal procedure will be customized to suit your needs and goals. The Sciton Forever Bare BBL has allowed thousands of people around the world to experience smooth, hair-free skin year round.
How does BBL hair removal work?
The state-of-the-art Sciton Forever Bare BBL technology can be safely used on nearly all skin types. The handheld device delivers light into the treated area in a precise and controlled manner, damaging the hair follicle with heat produced from the process. The surrounding tissue typically will be left unharmed due to the targeted emission of light and the dual cooling mechanism built into the technology. As a result, you likely will not experience the redness, irritation, or downtime common with other procedures.
Unlike some other hair removal treatments that are prone to patchy coverage and “missed spots,” the IN-Motion technology, which allows the handheld device to slide evenly across the skin, provides even heating and maximizes coverage for the most efficient treatment possible.
What are the benefits of Sciton Forever Bare BBL™ hair removal treatments?
Sciton BBL hair removal from our practice can provide a multitude of benefits, including:
- Full coverage with fewer or no missed spots
- Little to no downtime
- Virtually pain-free treatment
- Typically safe on all skin types
- Direct skin contact for safer, speedier treatment
- Reduced risk of side effects
- Typically less expensive and time consuming than other hair removal methods
Our hair removal system can also be used in a variety of body areas, including:
- Lower legs
- Sacrum (lower back)
If you are seeking to permanently reduce unwanted facial and body hair without experiencing uncomfortable procedures or repetitive hair removal processes, you may wish to consider BBL hair removal, which could potentially make shaving, tweezing, and waxing unnecessary.
How much does BBL hair removal cost?
Hair removal costs between $50 and $1,000 depending on the size of the area you wish to treat. We will go over the price of your hair removal program during your initial consultation, including how many sessions should be required to achieve your desired outcome. As with all our procedures, your comfort and results are our highest priorities, and we will work with you to find an optimal solution to your concerns.
