The primary goals of the BBL and BBL HERO are to reduce the appearance of redness, rosacea, broken capillaries, and hyperpigmentation like sun spots and freckles. It can also improve the appearance of fine lines, and dull skin.
BBL treatments accomplish their goals by delivering Broad Band Light and heat.
The BBL and BBL Hero work in a similar way, producing the same outcomes. The difference being that the BBL Hero delivers the heat and light at a faster rate than the original BBL treatment, making it one of the most efficient photorejuvenation treatments available on the market today, particularly for areas of concern on the body.
In order to protect your eyes from the bright light emitted by the BBL, your eyes will be covered with shields. You will feel a warm, quick snapping sensation as the light and heat are absorbed by the skin.
If you are new to this treatment at Quartz, we may do a test patch during your consultation to ensure safety and efficacy.
Shortly after treatment, the unwanted pigment will come to the surface of the skin, resembling coffee grounds. This will slough off naturally within 7-10 days of having the treatment. Vascular lesions such as broken capillaries and cherry angiomas will minimize, many of them disappearing altogether. Skin tone and texture improve. Some may experience redness and mild swelling for up to 3 days after the treatment.
