Forever Bare Q & A

What is Forever Bare?

Forever Bare is a hair removal procedure that uses light-based energy called Broadband light (BBL™) to minimize or eliminate body hair growth. Instead of shaving every week or waxing every month, you can use Forever Bare to minimize hair in areas such as your:

  • Arms 
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Chin and neck
  • Upper lip
  • Bikini area

When you visit Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics for a consultation, Dr. Bushore develops a personalized treatment plan for your body hair using Forever Bare. It’s one of the fastest and most effective options for hair removal because the device can target large areas at once. It also provides continuous cooling to keep your skin comfortable during the procedure. 

What should I expect during Forever Bare treatments?

You’ll likely need several Forever Bare treatments to achieve the level of body hair removal you want. Before the treatment starts, Dr. Bushore applies a gel to your skin which helps focus the light energy and offers soothing. 

The light travels deep into your skin and heats the targeted hair follicles. The heat damages the follicles, causing them to stop functioning. Dr. Bushore can adjust the settings on the BBL device according to your hair color, skin tone, and hair density. 

Once the session is over, you can return to your normal routine right away. Be mindful of sunlight as your skin heals and wear plenty of sunscreen to avoid ultraviolet (UV) damage. 

Are the results of Forever Bare permanent?

Forever Bare hair removal is highly effective at reducing the amount of hair on your body. While you can enjoy long-term hairlessness after an initial series of treatments, most people see some hair grow back. 

Typically, the hair that grows back is finer, lighter, and more manageable than before. It’s up to you to decide how you want to deal with it, but one of your options is to return to Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics for touch-up Forever Bare treatments. Dr. Bushore determines the number of treatments you need to enjoy long-lasting hairlessness.
