Quick Facts

About Sciton Hero BBL

Sciton Hero BBL is an IPL laser system. HERO stands for High Energy Rapid Output, which quickly delivers broadband light to treatment areas creating superior results through shorter treatment sessions. This is particularly important when treating larger body areas – treatment times can be shortened to 15 minutes vs. one hour with traditional IPL treatments. Treatments are also far more comfortable than the IPL treatments of the past. The system is considered one of the most powerful IPL technologies available.

Sciton Hero BBL is a broadband light type of intense pulsed light therapy. This means that during treatment, broad spectrum light is directed at the skin to break apart pigment or stimulate new collagen production for increased elasticity. This creates a smoother and more even appearance. Sciton’s advanced technology means that the broadband light is directed to the skin faster and more intensely compared to other options, enhancing both efficacy and safety.

Who can benefit from Sciton Hero BBL?

BBL Hero is a beneficial treatment for many patients dealing with concerns including sun damage, brown spots, spider veins, pigmented lesions, rosacea, acne, or texture issues including fine lines and wrinkles. In some cases, the technology can also be used to remove unwanted hair.

Generally speaking, patients with lighter skin tones are better candidates for BBL Hero, as those with darker skin tones may face damage or pigmentation issues as a result of IPL treatments. During a consultation, your technician will determine whether you are a suitable candidate based on your Fitzpatrick skin type. In addition, those with certain medical issues may be contraindicated for BBL Hero, so it is important to disclose all relevant health history during a consultation to make sure that the treatment will be safe and effective for you.

What to Expect

There is no downtime after Hero BBL treatment. Patients should be careful to avoid sun exposure for several days after treatment and may see minor redness or feel some tenderness in the treated area. Makeup can be applied 24 hours after treatment. Results are typically noticeable about two weeks after your treatment.
