FROM HEAD TO TOE
The BBL™ treatment is a no-downtime, comfortable procedure that eliminates the visible signs of aging, such as age spots, sun spots, redness, or dull-looking skin. Improving skin’s appearance anywhere on the body.
BBL HERO® stands for High Energy Rapid Output, which is a faster, more comfortable, more powerful BBL treatment.
BBL™ Hero – Broadband Light from Head-to-Toe. “Color Correction–not just for the Face.” Target your face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, legs. Color-correction for age spots, rosacea, acne, freckles with skin-tightening over time.
WHAT IS BBL HERO?
BBL HERO is an advanced light treatment that incorporates Forever Young BBL™, a technology that actually changes the way the skin ages for long-lasting rejuvenation. These treatments are safe for use on most exposed areas of skin such as the face, neck, arms, hands, décolletage, and back. HERO treats all of the same concerns we treat with regular BBL, including:
- Excess brown pigment such as sunspots, freckles, and age spots
- Redness such as rosacea, cherry angiomas, and telangiectasias
HOW DOES BBL HERO WORK?
BBL HERO is non-ablative, meaning it doesn’t harm the surface of the skin. The light energy passes harmlessly through the skin and heats the excess pigment underneath. The heat energy breaks the melanin up into tiny particles and similarly destroys unwanted blood vessels, which are gradually flushed away by the body’s cleansing processes. HERO provides the following improvements over BBL:
- 4 times the speed. Large areas like the back, arms, and legs take just 2 to 5 minutes to treat.
- 3 times the power. Each pulse is more effective, so fewer passes over the skin are needed.
- 2 times cooler for enhanced comfort during treatment.
WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT BEFORE AND DURING YOUR BBL HERO® TREATMENT?
Patients must have realistic expectations for the procedure and outcomes of the treatment process. The procedure’s goal is to fade the appearance of pigmentation, delay the aging process, improve redness and vessels, and create overall healthier skin. This is a non-invasive procedure that requires no anesthesia, thanks to the integrated cooling technology. However, some patients sometimes feel better opting for additional topical numbing.
As the device is passed over the skin, the high-energy rapid broadband light targets the melanin in the skin. Initially, the pigmented spots that were targeted effectively will darken after the treatment. The darker pigment is then gradually replaced by new undamaged skin cells using the skin’s own healing mechanisms. The process can take up to two weeks for the areas to shed. The light also targets redness by using a different wavelength. The vessels being treated are heated and will then seal themselves off to be reabsorbed by the body. This process can also take up to two weeks. Vascularities, redness, and pigmentation can be difficult to treat and sometimes need several treatments.
