What Does BBL HERO Treat?
BBL HERO can be used on any part of the body to address issues including:
- Freckles and birthmarks
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Broken blood vessels
- Pigmentation irregularities
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull skin
- Skin laxity
BBL can also address skin conditions such as cherry angioma, telangiectasia, and rosacea, and may be effective as a treatment for acne in some patients.
Where can BBL HERO be Used?
Dr. DiBernardo can use BBL HERO treatment on the legs, hands, belly, back, chest, and arms. He can also use this treatment on the neck, face, and other delicate areas of the body, making BBL HERO treatment one of the most versatile options available.
BBL uses light energy to stimulate collagen production. This helps to produce a softer, fuller, and more youthful appearance. At the same time, the photo-thermal energy produced by BBL works to eliminate redness, broken blood vessels, and various pigmentation issues.
Remarkable in scope and efficacy, BBL HERO is a good solution for many of our patients. During your initial consultation, we will help you decide if it is the best one for your needs.
About the BBL HERO Procedure
BBL HERO is 4x faster than other BBL treatments. It is also 3x more effective with 2x the cooling effect of traditional IPL procedures, making it a more comfortable and reliable way to achieve results.
This treatment is performed with a handheld device that delivers carefully measured and precisely targeted pulses of broad-spectrum light. As the device is moved over the treatment area, it addresses color and textural issues, correcting them to produce a smooth and clear complexion.
It is important to remember that, while BBL HERO is an exceptionally effective treatment, it may take more than one session to see optimal results. This is something that can be discussed in greater detail during your time in our care.
BBL HERO Recovery
BBL HERO treatment is nonsurgical and requires no recovery period. Patients are able to resume all normal activities, including exercise, after treatment. It is common to have mild discomfort, similar to a sunburn, for up to 48 hours, but this is not typically limiting.
No anesthesia is required for BBL HERO treatment. This eliminates the risk of adverse reactions to sedatives and allows you to remain conscious and alert throughout your procedure.
While recovery and discomfort following BBL HERO treatment are negligible, we will provide information on post care, including creams, serums, and other ointments that can assist with healing and improve your overall experience.
Am I a Good BBL HERO Candidate?
BBL HERO is different from other types of IPL therapy in that it is safe and effective for nearly all skin types. If you are struggling with pigmentation issues, age or sun spots, or another issue that can be treated with BBL, you may be the ideal candidate.
There is no downtime associated with BBL HERO therapy and very little that will need to be done in preparation. However, avoiding sun exposure and certain other irritants may be necessary in the weeks leading up to your procedure.
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for BBL is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. DiBernardo. During this meeting, we can assess your problem areas and discuss all of your treatment options to help you choose the best one for your needs.
At Which Age Should I Start BBL HERO Treatments?
BBL HERO is suitable for adults of all ages and can work both as a curative and preventative treatment. The best age to start treatment is whatever age you decide to try it, although it may be more effective in people with less pronounced signs of aging.
