What Is BBL Hero and how does it work?
BBL HERO® is the newest take on our tried-and-true favorite, Forever Young BBL®. The name is an acronym and stands for Broadband Light High Energy Rapid Output. The original Forever Young BBL® is an advanced photorejuvenation treatment that uses broadband light to rejuvenate skin at a cellular level and reduce pigmentation, including brown spots and redness.
It works by emitting short bursts of high-intensity light to penetrate just below the skin’s surface, targeting the melanin that makes up brown spots and the blood vessels that create broken capillaries. The light energy will gently heat the upper layers of your skin and stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. This anti-aging and photo-correcting treatment boosts collagen and elastin, leaving you with clearer, smoother, glowing skin.* Studies have shown that regular treatment caused patients to look up to ten years younger than their average age.1
The benefit of BBL HERO® is its ability to emit the light with 4x the speed (faster than IPL), 3x the Peak Power (more effective) and 2 x the cooling effect (more comfortable than IPL). For context, a typical IPL machine may take up to one second apiece for a pulse, or light flash. A BBL HERO® pulse can take as few as three milliseconds, which means you can get 1,200 to 1,500 pulses in a single face treatment vs. 250 to 350 pulses with the original BBL®. As such, the clients can see results even faster.
BBL HERO® is the ideal treatment of pigmentation and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation on the legs, arms, hands, fingers, back, and décolleté.
