What is BBL Hero?

BBL or BroadBand Light, is a phototherapy treatment that utilizes specific filters to treat a variety of conditions on the face and body, including arms, legs, abdomen, and back!  The BBL™ Hero is the next-generation version of intense pulsed light treatments. “HERO” – which stands for “high energy rapid output” – improves the performance of traditional BBL, making it faster, more powerful, and cooler for comfort.

BBL Hero Treats:

  • Signs of Aging
  • Redness
  • Unwanted Hair
  • Acne
  • Sun and Age spots
  • Rosacea


The BBL Hero Treatment

First, your provider will apply a gel to the treatment area.  Next, they will move the device hand-piece over the treatment area pulsing flashes of targeted light.  These pulses cause little to no pain.  

What to Expect After Treatment

Post-procedure, you may be red and possibly slightly swollen.  If brown spots are targeted, you will notice them start to slough away over the next week or two.  YOU WILL BE SENSITIVE TO SUNLIGHT.  It is especially important to wear sunscreen for the first couple of weeks after your BBL!

Multiple treatments may be required to obtain your desired results, depending on treatment type.  Your CCSD provider will work with you to come up with a custom treatment plan.
