BBL HERO provides the latest technology in photo rejuvenation
The BBL HERO is the most powerful intense pulsed light device approved by the FDA. As a result, most patients see improvement after just one treatment, as you can see here. Skin will be clearer and smoother; fine lines and wrinkles will be improved.
BBL HERO eliminates the signs of aging and sun damage: brown spots, redness, spider veins and uneven texture. It also stimulates collagen.
Because it stimulates collagen, the light therapy treatment can be used on younger patients for “pre” rejuvenation to keep the signs of aging from appearing.
BBL stands for broadband light. HERO is “high energy rapid output” which reduces your treatment time in half. Now you can regenerate and restore with no downtime, in no time!
BBL broadband intense pulsed light treatments literally “turn back the clock” for your skin. Clinical studies have shown broadband light treatments induce molecular changes–where aging skin becomes more like young skin.
How Much Does BBL HERO Cost?
The cost for a BBL HERO treatment for pigment and dark spots ranges from $300 to $700 per session. For example, full face is $400, chest $400 and hands $250 per session. A full arm treatment (forearms and upper arms) is $700. Find out your personal treatment cost by booking an appointment at 855-465-6621. BBL treatments should be scheduled three weeks apart.
To prepare for your BBL HERO treatment, avoid these things four weeks prior:
- No tanning (including self-tanning creams or sprays)
- No waxing
- No chemical peels
Immediately before treatment, avoid blood thinners like ibuprofen, aspirin and alcohol. Come to your appointment with clean skin, free of makeup or perfume.
Consider Combining Two Treatments
We call it the “Magic Duo.” When a BBL HERO treatment and CO2 CoolPeel Laser procedure are done within two to three weeks of each other, the results are stunning. The patient below in the selfie and in the before and after photos said, “You took YEARS off my face! I’m so grateful. I don’t feel ashamed of my skin anymore. You really are the best at what you do!”
Other Light Therapy
Blue Light (Photodynamic) Therapy
For acne, many patients say the treatment rejuvenates their skin in addition to clearing up acne. The light treatment only takes a little over 15 minutes, but you must avoid the sun and any bright light after treatment. So plan ahead and schedule your appointment when you can stay out of the sun. You’ll want to bring a wide-brimmed hat and we will apply sunscreen before you leave. Afterward, your skin will be red, maybe swollen and your skin may peel. But all of this is temporary and should clear up in a month.
For treating precancerous spots, the use of blue light (photodynamic) therapy is covered by Medicare. If you are fair-skinned and of a “certain age” you may have scaly little spots on your face and scalp caused by the sun, called actinic keratosis, or AKs for short. These spots are considered pre-cancerous. While we often treat AKs by freezing each one with liquid nitrogen, there is another treatment option: photodynamic therapy. A recent study compared light therapy to cryotherapy and found that those who had the light treatment were 14% more likely to have their lesions eliminated.
