BBL HERO - Way, Way, Better then IPL

Updated: May 15, 2023

BL HERO (BroadBand Light High Energy Rapid Output) is an advanced version of BBL (BroadBand Light) therapy that uses innovative technology to deliver more efficient and effective skin rejuvenation treatments.

BBL HERO uses a high-powered light energy source to target the signs of aging and damage in the skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, and uneven skin tone and texture. The treatment works by selectively heating the targeted areas of the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, and promoting natural skin regeneration.

One of the main advantages of BBL HERO over traditional BBL therapy is its high energy output, which allows for faster treatment times and more dramatic results. BBL HERO also uses a cooling mechanism to protect the skin and reduce discomfort during treatment, and can be customized to meet the specific needs and goals of each individual patient.

BBL HERO has been shown to be effective for a wide range of skin concerns and can be used on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands. However, as with any medical procedure, there may be some risks and side effects associated with BBL HERO treatment, such as redness, swelling, and temporary darkening or lightening of the skin.

BBL HERO (BroadBand Light High Energy Rapid Output) has been shown to produce impressive results in patients looking to improve the appearance of their skin.

Some of the potential benefits of BBL HERO treatment may include:

  1. Improved skin texture and tone

  2. Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

  3. Reduction of age spots, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation

  4. Increased collagen and elastin production for firmer, more youthful-looking skin

  5. Reduction of acne and acne scars

  6. Smoother, more even skin overall

The specific results of BBL HERO treatment can vary depending on factors such as the patient's age, skin type, and the severity of their skin concerns.

In general, patients may see noticeable improvements in the appearance and texture of their skin after just one treatment, with optimal results typically seen after a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart.

It is important to note that the results of BBL HERO treatment are not permanent, and patients may require ongoing maintenance treatments to maintain their results over time.

There have been some studies conducted on the genetic basis of skin rejuvenation and the effects of BroadBand Light (BBL) therapy on gene expression in the skin.

One study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology in 2013 found that BBL therapy could modulate the expression of genes involved in skin aging and inflammation. The researchers used microarray analysis to assess changes in gene expression in skin samples taken from patients before and after BBL treatment. They found that BBL therapy significantly upregulated genes involved in skin repair and collagen production, and downregulated genes involved in inflammation and oxidative stress.

Another study published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine in 2018 used RNA sequencing technology to analyze changes in gene expression in skin samples taken from patients undergoing BBL therapy. The researchers found that BBL treatment altered the expression of genes involved in collagen synthesis, inflammation, and pigmentation. They also found that BBL therapy upregulated genes involved in skin barrier function and DNA repair.

These studies suggest that BBL therapy can have beneficial effects on the genetic expression of skin cells, promoting skin rejuvenation and reducing signs of aging and damage. However, further research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms underlying these effects and to determine the long-term benefits and risks of BBL therapy for skin rejuvenation.

The downtime or recovery period after a BroadBand Light (BBL) HERO treatment can vary depending on the intensity and type of treatment performed, as well as the patient's skin type and individual response to the treatment.

In general, BBL HERO treatments are non-invasive and require little to no downtime. Patients may experience mild redness and swelling immediately after treatment, which usually resolves within a few hours to a day. Some patients may also experience mild bruising or blistering, although these side effects are rare and typically resolve quickly.

Patients are usually able to resume their normal daily activities immediately after treatment, although it is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure and to wear sunscreen to protect the treated area.
