Rough, dull, and uneven texture is a common complaint in our dermatology office. Textural irregularities can occur as part of the natural aging process but are also attributed to chronic sun exposure, smoking, acne breakouts, and a build-up of dead skin cells.
If you would like to improve skin texture without the downtime and discomfort of ablative lasers, we highly recommend treatment with the BBL Hero (High Energy Rapid Output). It harnesses the latest Broadband light laser therapy to improve rough skin texture. It delivers significant textural improvements than traditional laser devices.
How Does BBL Hero Fix Uneven Skin Texture?
The BBL Hero by Sciton allows dermatologists to address age and sun-related skin concerns faster and safer than ever. It sends short pulses of high-intensity light energy into the dermis. This produces smoother-looking skin that is firmer and more evenly toned.
The energy heats the upper layers of the skin–triggering collagen regeneration. In addition, the broadband light turns on anti-aging genes and is designed to work on all skin types and tones. The BBL Hero is the next generation of light therapy and boosts your body’s self-healing response for visible improvements within a few days of the treatment.
What Makes BBL Hero Different?
This photo-rejuvenation therapy is the latest iteration of BBL technology. A single pulse of broadband light from the BBL Hero lasts just a few milliseconds, which means that a whole face treatment takes less than 5 minutes, and an entire back can be done in under 10 minutes.
Further, this next generation of BBL therapy is four times faster than before and has three times the power. It is a more effective and faster treatment that easily fits your busy lifestyle. You can treat rough skin texture on your lunch break with plenty of time to spare. BBL Hero also boasts two times the cooling power of traditional BBL, thanks to the CoolComfort Technology. Compared to IPL and regular broad band light treatments, BBL Hero is the hands-down winner regarding patient comfort and convenience.
It is also safe for the entire body, including the neck, chest, arms, legs, and back. In addition, because it is so fast and powerful, our dermatologists can treat larger areas quickly, delivering amazing results from head to toe.

How many BBL Hero Sessions Are Needed?

t. However, the number of Hero sessions will depend on your skin type and the severity of your concerns. Many of our patients benefit from a series of two to three BBL sessions, spaced one month apart.
