What is BBL Hair Reduction in Rochester?

BBL Hair reduction is a safe and reliable procedure performed at our Rochester, New York location that removes unwanted hair at its core and features treatments that can be customized according to hair color and texture. Using highly effective intense pulsed light (IPL), BBL gently heats the targeted area(s). The heat irrevocably damages the hair follicle, allowing them to be diminished and unable to show themselves again. After about two weeks, remaining hair follicles may continue to fall off. This ensures quality results you’ll be proud of.

How BBL Hair Reduction in Rochester Works

BBL hair reduction is a non-invasive treatment that uses light to inhibit hair growth. The pigment in the hair shaft absorbs the light, which in turn creates heat. That heat damages the hair follicle’s growth center, therefore hindering more hair from growing in.

Since hair growth cycles through resting and growing phases, a series of initial BBL hair reduction treatments are performed every 4 to 10 weeks, depending on the area of the body. Most people see the maximum reduction after 6 to 8 sessions.

Simply speaking, when hair is in its resting phase, it might not be able to absorb the light or generate enough heat to do any real damage. That’s why we generally recommend getting multiple treatments to remove hair as it rotates through the hair growth cycle.



Overall, BBL hair reduction in Rochester will give you incredible, long-lasting results. In fact, it’s effective in removing 80 to 90 percent of hair in the treated areas! Even though a small amount of hair may grow back, that hair is usually finer and less noticeable than it was before the treatment. Many people will do a touch-up treatment every 6 to 12 months to catch any lingering hair.

The Hair Growth Cycle

The hair growth cycle plays an important role in the success of BBL hair reduction in Rochester. Hair grows in cycles, and many factors influence its growth. Age, ethnicity, medications, hormone levels, and even body type all influence the length, coarseness, and color of body hair.

In general, hair goes through three phases of growth: anagen, catagen, and telogen. The length of the cycle does vary from person to person, which is why it’s important to follow your customized hair reduction plan.

Phase 1: Active Growing
Anagen is the active growing phase where the hair bulb is intact. Hair grows in both directions—upward and downward. Early anagen is when the bulb is closest to the surface of the skin and contains an abundance of melanin (pigment). This phase allows for the most effective treatment.

Phase 2: Regression
Catagen is a brief intermediate phase between anagen and telogen. It is a regression phase, when the lower part of the hair stops growing but has not been shed, and when the body absorbs the lower third of the follicle.

Phase 3: Resting
Telogen is the resting phase. The hair bulb is no longer present and is now a club hair, which will fall out, or be pushed out of the follicle by a new anagen growing hair.

BBL hair reduction in Rochester versus laser hair removal

Although both BBL hair reduction and laser hair removal work in a similar fashion, the key difference between the two is the type of light used. Lasers use a monochromatic coherent light source while BBL hair reduction uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL has several wavelengths instead of having a monochromatic light source and can penetrate a variety of skin levels.

With the power of IPL, you’ll find that after your BBL hair reduction in Rochester, you’ll have smooth, hairless skin that’s worth showing off!

Before the Treatment

Before your BBL hair reduction in Rochester, you’ll meet with one of our hair removal specialists to discuss your hair loss goals. We’ll closely examine your hair type and texture so we can find the best light option for you.

During this time, we’ll also create a customized program that’ll include where we’ll focus your treatment and how many treatments you should get to obtain the smooth skin you’ve always wanted!

Do not tan or use any kind of self-tanners a month before your BBL hair reduction treatment. Tanned skin could lead to discoloration and blistering. You’ll also want to avoid plucking or waxing the areas you want to be treated for a month.

During the Treatment

We ask that all of our clients come in for their BBL hair reduction appointment with the area freshly shaved. We’ll apply protective eyewear to avoid any damage from the light. After applying a cool gel, your hair reduction specialist will use a handpiece to administer flashes of light that will begin destroying hair cells.

Many of our clients say the process feels like a slight prick or rubber bands snapping against the skin. Other than that, BBL hair reduction in Rochester is very tolerable, and we’ll make sure that you’re in and out as fast as possible.

After the Treatment

You may see slight swelling or minor redness after your BBL hair reduction in Rochester. This is usually temporary and goes away after a few hours. The treated hair may take 1 to 2 weeks to fall away, and during that time, it can seem like they are still growing.

Depending on your customized plan, you may need multiple sessions to get your desired look. These should done within intervals between 4-10 weeks.

BBL hair reduction gives you the chance to have hairless, smooth skin. You’ll gain radiant skin without having to worry about shaving, waxing, or harsh hair removal creams. Enjoy skin that you’ll be proud to show off with BBL hair reduction in Rochester.
