Introducing the BBL™️️️ HERO—
A Better Way to Treat Discoloration!

BroadBand Light (BBL™) is a common way to treat uneven pigmentation, spider veins, and redness. You may have also heard it referred to as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). We’ve been using BBL™ in our practice for several years with great results. But now we’re taking things up a notch – I’m excited to introduce the BBL™ HERO!

What Makes BBL™ HERO Different?

 

HERO stands for High Energy Rapid Output — which means we can deliver more energy in a shorter amount of time. The Sciton BBL™ HERO is the most powerful BBL on the market, and the new cooling technology offers twice the cooling power to keep your treatment even more comfortable than traditional BBL. What does this mean for you?

 

It means better results, in less time, with less discomfort.

How Is It Different from Other BBL™ Treatments?

Our previous BBL™ treatments used a stamping technique. The applicator was placed on the skin, you would feel a fast flash of heat, and then we moved to a new spot and did the same thing. This made treating large areas, like the chest, arms, and legs, time consuming and occasionally uncomfortable.

Our new BBL™ HERO uses a motion technique. If you’ve had the Forever Bare hair removal treatment, you’ve already experienced what this is like. Not only is the BBL™ HERO much, much faster for treating large areas, it’s also significantly more comfortable. I was able to treat my chest, arms, and back in only about a half hour. And rather than a flash of heat, it only felt like a mild, prickly sensation.

What Can BBL™ HERO Treat?

Similar to traditional BBL treatments, the BBL HERO can lighten brown spots, fade redness, erase spider veins, and improve natural collagen production. Because the treatment delivers more energy than traditional BBL, it has a greater effect on skin tone and texture. But the results aren’t limited to just the face: we can also treat the neck, arms, legs, back, and chest!

Is There Downtime with the BBL™ HERO?

Immediately after treatment, you’ll feel slightly sunburned for a couple hours. This feeling fades fairly quickly. You’ll also notice any brown spots on your skin will get darker. On the face, they will exfoliate off and lighten up within a week, but the process may take two or three weeks for spots on other parts the body. If you have a lot of spider veins, you may experience some bruising.

Finally, it’s not unusual to have some mild swelling, particularly on the face, but some Benadryl and a cold compress will help reduce any swelling even faster.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

If you have a fair amount of sun damage, you’ll want to do a series of at least three treatments, spaced out one month apart, to even your skin tone.

After the initial work is done, I recommend getting a BBL™ HERO treatment three to four times a year to help maintain your boosted collagen — and because, in clinical studies, getting three to four treatments per year kept patients from developing wrinkles. In fact, at the end of a 10-year study, patients actually looked younger than at the beginning.
