Sciton BBL and BBL HERO

What It Does

At Quartz, we offer a treatment called photo rejuvenation. We use a powerful technology called BBL HERO, which is also known as IPL. This treatment can help reduce redness, broken capillaries, sun spots, and freckles. It can also improve the appearance of fine lines, dull skin, and pores. If you want to improve your skin, come and try our photo rejuvenation treatment!

How It Works

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.


  • Lightens sun damage
  • Improves tone and texture
  • Reduces overall redness, flushing, and broken capillaries
  • Little to no downtime

What to Expect

During Treatment

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.

After Treatment

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.

Recommended Sessions

3-4 initial treatments
Ongoing, future treatments are required to maintain results
