How does the BBL® HERO™ work?
Using intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, BroadBand Light (BBL) emits broad-spectrum thermal energy. Your skin absorbs this heat energy from the BBL HERO treatment, destroying pigmented skin cells and closing off superficial blood vessels. This energy is absorbed by melanin, brown pigment in your skin, and the hemoglobin, the proteins in your red blood cells that cause redness.
Anything left of the brown pigment will peel off over the next two to three weeks after your treatment, and your body continues absorbing the remainder of the closed off blood vessels over the next several weeks. Thanks to the energy and heat of the light, BBL HERO triggers your skin’s healing process and stimulates collagen production.
How is the BBL HERO different from the original BroadBand Light therapy?
Made by Sciton, the new BBL HERO gets the job done in fewer sessions than the original BBL and delivers three times the energy of IPL treatments making it four times faster. It has two times the cooling technology to improve the precision of each treatment. The BBL HERO is perfect for patients who have limited time, but want fast results.
How much does BBL® HERO™ cost?
At all three of our RejuvenationMD medical spa locations in Bothell, Burlington, and Bellingham, we offer
BBL HERO starting at $1,600 and up, and we typically recommend an initial series of three to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart followed by a maintenance routine.
The cost of your BBL HERO will depend on the number of treatments you need. When you consult with us for your BBL HERO treatment, we’ll create a treatment plan tailored to you.
All new patients at RejuvenationMD receive a $200 credit toward any treatment, which can be used toward BBL HERO.
What can BBL HERO be paired with?
The efficiency and effectiveness of HERO opens up the doors for treatment combinations, allowing our experts to treat a variety of concerns in one appointment. We often recommend pairing the BBL HERO with Moxi™, a complementary laser resurfacing treatment that’s designed to eliminate sun damage, brighten, and tighten the skin to prevent aging.
Is BBL a laser treatment?
BroadBand Light is not a laser treatment. Rather than using a laser to emit light, it uses a broad spectrum of light, meaning it has several settings that can be customized to treat the conditions we want to target.
How long do BBL HERO results last?
Depending on your skin type and condition, your BBL HERO results can last up to a year. We recommend annual treatments to maintain these results and continue stimulating collagen production.
