The device—which is available on Sciton's JOULE platform—features the company's BroadBand Light Technology (BBLTM) and uses continuous movement and multiple lower-fluence pulses at a high repetition rate to evenly heat follicles to a precise temperature. A thermoelectrically cooled sapphire crystal on the handpiece provides continuous skin cooling before, during and after treatment for added patient comfort. "Our new hair removal technology boasts the highest power of any light device in this class on the market. Forever Bare BBL is capable of rapidly treating large areas quickly and precisely while dramatically improving clinical safety margins for hair removal," says Dan Negus, PhD, president of Sciton.
