What to expect with treatment:

BBL Hero is a laser treatment that is performed in the office setting. Most patients tolerate the feeling of BBL without needing any anesthetic numbing cream, though this can be offered for your treatment.

The BBL Hero flashes specialized light as it is quickly moved across the treatment area. Each flash of the light produces a feeling of warmth and some describe the sensation as a brief “rubber band snap” sensation. Your natural pigment is initially darkened, helping you know that you had an optimal treatment. A few days later, this pigment is shed leaving your skin glowing. Depending on the treatment site and the treatment protocol, the time for each treatment can take anywhere from 10-30 minutes.

Downtime will vary depending on the type of treatment protocol used, though you can typically expect minimal to no recovery time. Mild swelling and redness may occur. Within the next several days, your body’s natural healing process will remove the pigmented cells and replace them with fresh, new, undamaged cells. Patients usually start seeing results within the first 2 to 3 sessions.

After care involves wearing plenty of SPF and possible topical skin treatments customized to your skin type.
