BBL Hero Laser Treatment

BBL HERO Harnesses the Power of Broadband Light for Effective Skin Rejuvenation.

While there are many effective laser treatments on the market today, few compare to the amazing power of BBL® HERO™ (Broadband Light High Energy Rapid Output) by Sciton. This innovative laser treatment can create a path to clearer, softer, and smoother skin by utilizing the next generation of broadband light therapy. BBL HERO, an even more advanced IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment, is clinically proven to address the visible signs of aging and multiple other skin concerns through faster treatment sessions and improved outcomes compared to more traditional laser treatments. Patients enjoy the benefits of clearer, smoother skin with smaller pores and an overall revitalized appearance in many cases.

What is BBL HERO?

BBL HERO is quite similar to IPL laser treatments with a few key differences: it’s typically faster, more comfortable, and offers a somewhat broader range of treatment areas. BBL’s primary function is to reduce hyperpigmentation (age spots, sun damage, redness, rosacea, etc.) while also addressing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and dull skin. BBL HERO emits IPL wavelengths at a higher rate than other laser treatments, making it one of the most efficient options available. It can tackle your head-to-toe concerns in as little as 30 minutes, making it incredibly convenient for people always on the go.

How does BBL HERO work?

BBL HERO works by using your body’s own natural healing properties to renew your skin from within. The innovative device comfortably delivers quick pulses of light through the upper layers of your skin to target pigment and vascular lesions, just as with an IPL treatment. That pigment absorbs the light, and your body naturally removes the pigmented cells within days, replacing them with newer, fresher cells.

  • Forever Young BBL – Improves skin tone and texture, removes age spots and other pigmentation issues, and results in a more youthful appearance. Typically takes about 4-8 treatment sessions with improvement seen in 3-5 days and optimal results in 10-14 days.
  • BBL HERO Body– Treats pigment, sun damage, and age spots all over the body with the world’s most powerful IPL device through a quick and comfortable treatment. Generally takes 3-4 treatments with noticeable improvement in 7-10 days.
  • Forever Bare BBL – Reduces unwanted hair and improves the overall quality of your skin by addressing brown spots, red spots, and acne. Generally takes 3-6 treatments for a noticeable reduction in unwanted hair, depending on your individual hair growth, color, and thickness.

What can I expect during treatment with BBL HERO?

A topical anesthetic may be provided, but it’s typically not needed by most patients. Gel is placed on the treatment area to enhance your comfort and maximize efficiency. BBL HERO will be passed over the desired treatment area delivering blasts of high-intensity light. You will likely feel a warm, slight snapping sensation with each flash of light, which is generally tolerated well by most patients. When your session is done, a moisturizer and sunscreen will be applied to soothe and protect the skin.

Will I need any downtime after my BBL HERO treatment?

In most cases, no downtime is needed after treatment. We recommend that you avoid direct sun exposure and apply sunscreen before going outside. Most patients find BBL HERO to be more comfortable and experience an easier healing period as compared to other laser treatments. It’s important to note that some areas take longer to heal than others; the face takes about 1 week, whereas legs may take about 4 weeks on average.

What results can I expect from BBL HERO?

At Derm Aesthetics, we will carefully create a custom treatment plan tailored to your unique skin concerns. On average, most patients require at least two BBL treatments for desired improvement, though more may be needed depending on the patient. With IPL treatments, we’ve found that three to five treatments spaced about four weeks apart offer the most desired results. In many cases, results will take about 2-4 weeks to become noticeable and can last up to 12 months.
