The Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads offers this cutting-edge device as part of our commitment to always offer our patients the latest, safest laser technologies and treatments.

Make Your Skin Glow From Within

BBL HERO, or BroadBand Light High Energy Rapid Output, is a cutting-edge non-surgical aesthetic treatment offered at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads. It uses advanced light-based technology to target various skin concerns, reduce the appearance of pigmentation issues, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles, and promote collagen production for smoother, younger-looking skin. It requires minimal downtime, making it a convenient choice for those seeking a refreshed appearance without taking time off work or social activities.

BBL HERO Treats:

  • Pigmentation issues, such as age spots, sunspots, and freckles
  • Sun damage and discoloration
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone and complexion
  • Redness and symptoms of rosacea
  • Acne scarring and other texture issues
  • Visible blood vessels and vascular lesions

How BBL HERO Works

BBL HERO operates on the principle of selective photothermolysis, which involves using precise wavelengths of light to target specific chromophores (color-absorbing molecules) in the skin. This technology employs a broad range of wavelengths that can be adjusted to focus on different chromophores, allowing it to address various skin concerns.
BBL HERO emits intense pulses of light that are absorbed by the melanin in pigmented areas or the hemoglobin in blood vessels.

This generates heat and damages the targeted tissue, prompting the body’s natural healing response. As a result, pigmentation issues, such as sunspots and freckles, gradually fade, and blood vessels responsible for redness and rosacea coagulate and diminish. Furthermore, the controlled heat stimulates collagen production, leading to improved skin texture and reduced fine lines and wrinkles.

BBL HERO Treatment in Hampton Roads

Your BBL HERO session begins with a thorough consultation, during which our aesthetic providers discuss your goals, examine your skin, and review your medical history. Once your unique skin concerns are assessed, the treatment plan is tailored to your needs.

When you arrive for your session, you’ll be made comfortable in a treatment room, and protective eyewear will be provided to shield your eyes from the intense light. The BBL HERO handpiece will be applied to the treatment area. As the device emits bursts of high-energy broadband light, you may feel a warming sensation on your skin, but any discomfort is typically minimal. The duration depends on the size and number of areas treated, but it generally concludes within 30 minutes.

After your BBL HERO session, you can immediately resume your daily activities as there is little to no downtime involved. Some individuals experience mild redness or a sensation similar to a sunburn, but these effects subside within a few hours to a day. Over the following weeks, you’ll notice a gradual improvement in your skin’s appearance. For optimal results, most patients need 4 to 6 sessions spaced a few weeks apart, followed by maintenance sessions roughly once every year. The results gradually improve with each session.

BBL HERO Recovery Guidelines:

  • Shield your treated skin from direct sunlight by wearing sunscreen with a high SPF rating.
  • Apply a gentle, hydrating moisturizer to keep your skin nourished and supple.
  • Skip hot baths or showers for at least 24 hours to prevent excessive heat.
  • Refrain from using abrasive scrubs or exfoliants on treated areas for a few days.
  • Drink plenty of water to help your skin heal and maintain its vitality.
  • Skip makeup for at least 24 hours to allow your skin to breathe.
  • If you experience any discomfort or redness, use a cool compress to soothe the area.
  • Adhere to any specific post-treatment guidelines provided by your skincare specialist.
  • Consider follow-up treatments as recommended by your provider for long-term benefits.
  • Reach out to your provider if you have any unexpected side effects or concerns.
