BBL Hero® Skin Rejuvenation: A Safe & Effective Way To Revitalise Your Skin

BBL Hero® stands for Broadband Light High Energy Rapid Output.  Spanning a wider visible spectrum than IPL, BBL Hero® is a type of pulsed light therapy that can penetrate to a variety of skin levels, offering the most complete and versatile light system in its class.  It stimulates collagen production, evens out skin tone and reduces pore size, resulting in more younger-looking skin. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect which can help settle symptoms of rosacea.

Before BBL Skin Treatment

Before BBL® skin treatment, it is important that you have not had any recent sun exposure, especially in the prior 2 weeks. It is also imperative that you do not have any vestiges of fake tan left in the treatment area.

When you arrive for your treatment you will need to wash off any makeup you are wearing in the treatment area.

Skin Care After BBL Treatment

After BBL® skin rejuvenation treatment, it is essential that a broad spectrum SPF30, or higher, sunscreen be used to continue to protect the skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

The skin is not made more sensitive to the sun by this procedure. Makeup may be applied following the procedure and skin care may continue as normal.

FAQs About BBL Skin Rejuvenation

Below are popular questions about BBL® Skin Rejuvenation we receive. If your questions are not listed, please contact us for consultation.

How does BBL skin rejuvenation work?
It’s well documented that IPL is effective in skin rejuvenation. Spanning a wider visible spectrum than IPL, BBL® is a type of pulsed light therapy that can penetrate to a variety of skin levels, offering the most complete and versatile light system in its class.  The light energy delivered by BBL HERO® gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas then stimulates skin cells to regenerate, revealing younger looking skin. Fine blood vessels that cause redness are eliminated, pigmented age spots and sun spots are lightened, while skin feels smoother, and uneven tone and texture are improved. 

The body’s natural processes then work on the results of the interaction between the light and the tissue to make it look better from many different perspectives.

Who is this treatment suitable for?
It is suitable for many skin types, but is best for those with lighter skins who have issues with blotchy sun damage, broken capillaries, acne, rosacea and other inflammatory conditions. Your doctor will advise you whether or not this treatment is suitable or advisable for your skin and its concerns.
Will it harm my skin?
No treatment is risk-free, however, the BBL® settings can be tailored to suit your skin and its concerns.
Can BBL cause burns to my skin?
Yes, although this is unusual when settings have been adjusted to suit and you have advised us of any recent sun exposure and removed any fake tan.
How many BBL treatments are required and how often?
A standard BBL® regimen usually involves a series of two to five treatments, two to four weeks apart. The actual number of treatments depend on your skin condition after seeing the doctor to discuss what may be achieved and settings are prescribed. These sessions are booked with a registered nurse.
Is BBL procedure painful?
The level of discomfort felt varies, with most patients tolerating the treatment extremely well.
Are there any BBL skin rejuvenation side effects?
After effects of BBL® treatment include patchy redness. Some pigment and freckles will become darker and slowly fade or flake off over the following weeks. Some swelling or scabbing may occur.

Can I see the results immediately?
The immediate effects will just be of some heat-related redness. Abnormal pigmentation will look slightly different in colour, maybe a bit greyer, and will subsequently darken. The beneficial effects will become noticeable over subsequent weeks as pigment improves and the skin smooths.  Studies have shown that after 10 years of maintenance therapy with BBL® (once or twice a year), the skin looks younger under the microscope than when the patient began (and was 10 years younger).
Can BBL be used for rosacea treatment, spider vein treatment, or acne scar treatment?
Yes. BBL® anti-inflammatory effects is very good for most people’s rosacea symptoms, although it will not cure it. Many capillaries and the colour of scars may also improve, however, we have other treatments that may be recommended in some instances.
Can you recommend other suggested skin rejuvenation treatments?
The Tixel or Matrix RF treatment may be used for smoothing fine lines, promoting textural changes within the skin, reducing the appearance of sun damage and acne scarring.
