FAQs

BBL HEROic is the most advanced pulsed light technology available today.

While BBL HEROic shares the same core technology with its predecessors—BBL® and BBL® HERO™—HEROic introduces revolutionary technological advancements, including Intelligent Control™ (IC™) software and the Skin Positioning System™ (SPS™). These innovations facilitate faster, more effective treatments, enhanced patient comfort, and exceptional results for every patient.

During a BBL HEROic treatment, a clear gel is applied over the treatment areas to help your skin absorb light energy. As the treatment begins, you should feel minimal to no discomfort as your provider gently glides the handpiece over the skin.

Pulsed light improves your skin in two ways. Initially, it targets highly vascular and pigmented areas like visible blood vessels or sunspots, breaking them down for absorption by the body. Additionally, the generated heat acts within the collagen-rich areas, triggering the body’s healing response and resulting in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and a more youthful appearance.

A treatment with BBL HEROic is generally well-tolerated by most patients. It is commonly described as feeling like a quick snap on the skin, with the sensation fading swiftly as the handheld device pulses over the skin. Thanks to BBL HEROic’s CoolComfort™ technology, which cools the epidermis during the procedure, topical anesthesia is not necessary. After the treatment, it is normal for the skin to feel warm for about 30 to 60 minutes.

There is minimal-to-no downtime following treatment with BBL HEROic. Patients can typically resume normal activities immediately.

Key points to remember, include:

Skin sensitivity: Your skin may feel sensitive, like a mild sunburn, but this typically subsides within 48 hours.

Healing process: You might notice temporary darkening of pigmented areas, along with some redness and swelling. These are part of the natural healing process where damaged cells are replaced by new ones, repairing your skin.

Post-treatment care: Follow your provider’s advice, avoid direct sun exposure, and wear broad-spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen to protect the skin, especially during the first 72 hours post-treatment. Depending on the skin’s pre-existing condition, mild discomfort, dryness, or minor crusting may occur.

Skincare and makeup: You can typically resume using skincare products and makeup within 1-2 days post-treatment.

BBL HEROic can be performed anywhere on the face or body.

A week or two after a BBL HEROic treatment, your skin will appear more even, youthful, glowing, and smooth. Visible results can be seen in just 1 to 2 treatments, while optimal results are generally seen after completing a series of treatments spaced a few weeks apart. Your skin will continue to improve in the weeks and months following your BBL HEROic sessions.

Your provider will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that addresses your specific skin revitalization needs.

Typically, a series of three treatments, spaced approximately three weeks apart, is recommended. Once you have reached your goals, periodic maintenance treatments will help keep your skin healthy and glowing.

A BBL HEROic treatment typically takes 20-30 minutes, depending on the size and areas being treated.

BBL HEROic is easily combined with other Sciton modalities, such as HALO® and MOXI™, for enhanced results and less downtime. It may also be combined with other minimally invasive procedures, such as injectable fillers or BOTOX®. During your consultation, your provider will create a plan to address your skin’s unique needs.
