What is BBL Hero?

The BBL HERO (Broad Band Light High Energy Rapid Output) treatment uses intense pulsed light to target acne, age spots, pigment and more.

The BBL™ Hero treats the following conditions:

  • Sun damage
  • Age spots

What happens after the treatment?

The treatment requires minimal to no downtime. The treated area is initially darkened. Within the next several days, your body’s natural healing process will remove the pigmented cells and replace them with fresh, new, undamaged cells.

We recommend that you stay out of the sun two weeks before and two weeks after BBL treatments.
