What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is a popular procedure in Philadelphia. Using a process called BBL Sitcon, we utilize BroadBand Light (BBL) technology with Sitcon precision to target unwanted hair follicles safely and effectively. This innovative method delivers controlled bursts of light energy to the hair follicles, impairing their ability to grow hair without causing damage to the surrounding skin. BBL Sitcon offers a more comfortable and efficient hair removal experience compared to traditional methods, with reduced pain and downtime. This treatment is suitable for various skin types and can be used on almost any area of the body.
