How Does BBL™ HERO Work?
The light energy delivered by BBL™ HERO gently heats the surface layers of your skin to stimulate skin cell regeneration. New cells grow to replace damaged, dull, and dead cells, restoring your skin to its natural beauty for a clearer, smoother, vibrant, and younger-looking complexion.
The High Energy Rapid Output (HERO) broadband light (BBL™) laser combines the power of our traditional BBL™ lasers with 4x the speed (faster than IPL), 3x the peak power (more effective) and 2 x the cooling effect (more comfortable than IPL).
BBL™ HERO is a non-ablative laser, so there is no controlled injury to the skin, making it one of the easiest procedures to undergo to achieve smoother, more evenly toned, and textured skin. BBL™ HERO is so gentle, it even works on tanned skin.
The BBL™ HERO laser treats the following conditions:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Facial redness (rosacea)
- Pigmented lesions
- Unwanted hair

Am I A Good Candidate?
BBL™ HERO can improve the skin quality and beauty of almost anyone safely. It is very important your BBL™ HERO provider has experience with what BBL™ HERO can do. Under-treatment can lead a patient to require unnecessary additional sessions whereas over-treatment can lead to burns and scarring. At Levy Dermatology, all of our physicians have extensive experience in the use of the BBL™ HERO laser. If you’re interested in minimizing lines and wrinkles, improving your skin’s texture and tone, reducing redness, sun damage, and age spots, and more, get started with a consultation at Levy Dermatology.
What Is Bbl™ Hero Treatment Like?
There’s very little discomfort in your treatment. The BBL™ HERO energy feels like warm pulses and is usually quite comfortable. Your treatment can be complete in as little as 10 minutes per treatment area. You’ll receive instructions for thorough aftercare, such as avoiding direct sun exposure as much as possible and using sunscreen to protect your skin and prevent future sun damage.
Is There Any Downtime?
While you may experience some redness, flushing, and tenderness of your treatment area, these will resolve within a few hours, and you’re free to go about your regular routines as you feel able. We do ask that you apply sunscreen to the affected area. BBL™ HERO treatments are extremely well tolerated by most people, so there’s very little interruption to your schedule.
When Can I Expect Results?
BBL™ HERO is considered one of the most significant advancements in the broad-spectrum pulsed light laser category in 20 years. This means results are possible after a single treatment with improvements continuing over the next week as your skin renews and new cells continue to grow. At Levy Dermatology, we may recommend a series of treatments, most often 3-6 sessions total, for cumulative outcomes which can extend weeks or even months. Maintenance treatments can help you retain your results for years to come.
