BBL® Hero™

It’s time to love all of the skin you’re in. Why stop at youthful glowing skin on your face when you can treat your whole body? BBL® Hero is a state-of-the-art technology that revitalizes the skin and can correct the appearance of sun damage, pigment issues, and age spots virtually anywhere on the face and body. The cosmetic skin specialists at MD Beauty Labs in West Palm Beach, FL, are proud to offer BBL Hero treatments that can dramatically improve skin’s texture and tone, revealing radiant and clear skin on the face and body.

What Is BBL Hero?

Broadband Light (BBL) High Energy Rapid Output (HERO) is a phototherapy device that improves overall skin appearance anywhere on the face and body. This advanced laser treatment can target and treat visible signs of aging and common skin conditions such as sun spots and age spots, unwanted hair, pigmented lesions, dyschromia, hyperpigmentation, vascular lesions, cherry angiomas, rosacea, spider veins, acne, and redness.

How BBL Hero Works

Remember IPL (intense pulsed light) that was introduced almost two decades ago for sun damage? BBL Hero is the next-generation phototherapy treatment, a more advanced and more effective technology that utilizes 9 different wavelengths to deliver quick pulses of light into the top layers of the skin. The pigment in the skin and/or hair absorbs the laser light and is destroyed in seconds. The beauty of this revolutionary device is that it allows completely customizable treatments that can be tailored to your specific skincare concerns.

FAQs About BBL Hero

What Should I Expect From My BBL Hero Treatment?

BBL Hero treatments can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes depending on the number and size of the treatment area(s). What’s important to know about BBL is that your treatment will be completely customized to your specific cosmetic needs. At your consultation, we’ll discuss your concerns and create a treatment plan designed to achieve your goals.

Does BBL Hero Hurt?

No, the BBL Hero handheld device includes CoolComfort™ technology. In addition, we also apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to ensure your maximum comfort.

Am I A Candidate For BBL Hero?

BBL Hero is ideal for individuals with skin types I-V who are seeking smoother skin, a more even complexion, and a more youthful-looking appearance. This advanced treatment can correct many common skin concerns, including those caused by lifestyle choices, environmental toxins, and genetics.

Are There Any Preparation and Aftercare Instructions For BBL Hero?

Prior to your BBL Hero treatment, it’s best to avoid tanning beds and direct sun exposure for at least two weeks. You should also stop using any active skincare products, such as glycolic acid or retinoids for a minimum of three days before treatment.

Following your BBL Hero treatment, it’s important to wear SPF of 40 or more and avoid tanning beds, direct sunlight, and any self-tanning products. For one week following your treatment, you should plan to refrain from any activity that causes excessive sweating and avoid heat, water, hot tubs, and saunas.

How Many BBL Hero Treatments Will I Need?

Most patients who have BBL Hero treatments enjoy visible results in just one session, however, those looking to correct more extensive skin conditions may require up to three treatments spaced two weeks apart. During your consultation, we’ll examine your skin and determine the number of treatments needed to reach your cosmetic goals.

Are BBL Hero Results Permanent?

BBL Hero results can be long-lasting with an optimal skincare regimen that includes sun protection. While there will be a dramatic improvement in skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, results are also long-lasting but treated skin is still subject to the effects of normal aging.

Is There Any Downtime?

There is little-to-no downtime associated with the BBL Hero. Minor redness or swelling is possible for up to five days post-treatment. Just as with other laser treatments, it is important to wear physical sunscreen, meaning sunscreen and protective clothing, to limit your sun exposure after treatment.

What’s the difference between BBL Hero, Forever Clear BBL, and Forever Young BBL?
