Why is this treatment also known as “Forever Young”? Because it effectively works to smooth out lines and wrinkles, tighten loose skin, improve sun damage, and address other signs of aging.
A topical numbing agent will be applied, and you will be given protective goggles to wear. The BBL Hero laser will emit quick bursts of Broadband Light energy directly into your skin where improvement is needed. Patients report this sensation as only feeling “warm”, and not uncomfortable or painful at all. Treatment time will vary from patient to patient, but typically lasts about 20 minutes. We recommend a series of 3 to 5 treatments done at least twice each year as part of a long-term skincare plan.
Recovery and results
BBL Hero requires no downtime, and you should be able to return to your regular day immediately following treatment. The most common side effect is flushed skin, but this will typically fade in a few hours. Some patients also experience minimal swelling for a day or two. Be sure to avoid prolonged sun exposure for two weeks after treatment, and wear a strong sunscreen. Results are visible in about one week, and will progress over the following months.
