What Is Forever Bare?

Forever Bare is an innovative and noninvasive BroadBand Light (BBL) device designed for comfortable and effective hair removal. This advanced system uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to target and destroy hair follicles in the targeted area. Forever Bare offers even and accurate coverage, minimal discomfort and no downtime. Because Forever Bare treatments eliminate hair growth at the source, you can claim smooth skin in no time and enjoy reduced hair growth that can last for years.

How Does It Work?

Forever Bare treatments are performed using a specialized handpiece with multiple spot size adapters. The flexibility of the handpiece allows us to treat all areas, both large and small, quickly and precisely. During treatment, the device is held to the treatment area while it emits pulses of energy to hair follicles. This energy gently heats the area until the follicles reach the temperature at which they are destroyed. Once a follicle is treated, it loses its ability to grow hair. The surrounding tissue is not harmed. The Forever Bare handpiece provides continuous cooling to keep your skin safe and comfortable until the treatment is complete. Most skin types and practically any part of the body can be treated with Forever Bare to reduce existing hair and prevent future growth.

How Does Forever Bare Differ From Other Hair Reduction Devices?

IPL and laser hair removal are both long-lasting procedures for reducing hair growth. They work in similar ways and can both be effective, but there are key differences between the techniques. IPL uses broad-spectrum visible light to heat hair follicles, while laser uses a single wavelength to deliver a concentrated and controlled blast of light to the follicles. Laser hair reduction is often reported to be more painful than IPL hair reduction. IPL devices can cover a larger area at once, which may result in fast treatment times and minimize the missed areas that occur with other hair removal techniques.

Preparing for Your Treatment

In the days and weeks before your Forever Bare treatment, there are a few things you should do to prepare. Do not tan or use self-tanners for at least a month before your treatment; the lighter your skin is, the more effectively the device can target your hair follicles. Do not wax, pluck or use depilatory creams for four to six weeks before treatment, as these hair removal methods can disturb the follicles. Shave with a fresh razor a day or two before your appointment so your hair is visible but minimal. Clean the area and do not apply any locations, deodorants, perfume or skincare products on the day of your treatment. Wear clothing that exposes the treatment area or is loose-fitting so it will not be uncomfortable if your skin feels sensitive after the procedure.

What to Expect During Your Treatment

Most hair removal treatments last approximately 12-15 minutes. For larger treatment areas, treatment can take an hour or more. Your practitioner will begin the treatment by choosing an appropriate setting for the Forever Bare device based on the color and thickness of your hair, the area you want treated and your skin type. You will wear protection to shield your eyes. After applying a clear gel to your skin, your practitioner will place the handpiece over the area and administer a sequence of gentle light pulses. You are likely to experience a warming sensation that patients often compare to a hot stone massage. The thermoelectrically-cooled sapphire plate on the Forever Bare handpiece maximizes comfort during and after the procedure. Most people report having a relatively painless treatment.

What to Expect After Your Treatment

There is no required downtime following Forever Bare sessions. Minor swelling or redness may occur in the first few hours after treatment, but most patients can resume normal activities right away. Aftercare is minimal. The treated area should be kept clean and direct sun exposure should be avoided. Apply sunscreen when heading outdoors and do not use tanning beds. You will be given a complete set of instructions regarding how to properly care for your skin after treatment to ensure the best results.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Forever Bare is a safe procedure with minimal side effects. The device heats gradually to therapeutic levels to maximize safety for all skin types and tones. The integrated cooling mechanism further enhances the comfort and safety of the treatment. Before your first hair removal session, a consultation will be performed to review all possible risks and contraindications.

What Results Can I Expect?

After your hair removal treatment, the majority of the hair in the treated area will wipe away with a clean cloth. It can take up to one week for the dead hair follicles to completely fall out and reveal silky smooth skin. Your hair will grow back thinner and more sparingly until optimal results are achieved. Most patients need anywhere from six to eight Forever Bare treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to reach their desired degree of hair reduction. Additional maintenance sessions may be required at later dates.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Treatment With Forever Bare?

Most men and women can safely undergo hair removal with Forever Bare. It is most effective for individuals with dark hair and light skin. Individuals who have blond or gray hair, or who are above a Fitzpatrick skin type V, may not be suitable candidates. We will determine if you are a good candidate for treatment with Forever Bare during your consultation.
