Enhancing Results: BBL HERO Treatments & Perfect Partners

January 15, 2024

Winter is the perfect time to consider laser treatments, like one of our favorites, BBL HERO! While you’ll find many benefits from it alone, you’ll find even greater and longer-lasting benefits when paired with other laser treatments. Let’s first dive into the benefits and then into some complimentary services.

What is BBL HERO & What Does it treat?

BBL HERO uses light energy to penetrate the skin and go after pigment in the skin. This could be redness and vessels, brown spots and freckles, or even inflammation from acne. Common areas that are treated are the face, neck, and chest; however, BBL can be used anywhere on the body.

There are several key advantages of using BBL HERO over traditional IPL technologies. These include increased speed and efficiency, enhanced power and precision, customization and versatility, improved patient comfort, increased safety profile, and consistent results often in fewer sessions. 

BBL HERO from Sciton is a minimal downtime treatment that can help rejuvenate the skin, calm down redness and rosacea, as well as help with pigmentation correction. This treatment is amazing on its own, but results can be even better when combining BBL with other treatments. Some of the more popular treatments that we can stack with BBL are Moxi and Halo laser treatments. Let’s dive into the benefits of stacked treatments and how to know which is best for you.

The Benefits of Combining BBL HERO & Moxi

First up we have the BBL HERO and Moxi combination. This is going to be a great option for patients with more brown pigmentation or melasma they are trying to target. BBL HERO will help calm any redness and inflammation, while also having rejuvenation benefits with collagen stimulation.  Moxi will then provide a polishing effect on the skin– helping to improve pore size, fine lines, and scars. It works wonderfully to target brown pigmentation that may be a little deeper in the skin for BBL to target.

Moxi is a non-ablative laser that is great for all ages, but also a good option for those younger patients looking to get started on laser treatments. Often called a prejuvenation treatment, Moxi is great for all ages and all skin types. Check out an amazing before and after of this combination treatment over on our Instagram!

BBL HERO & Halo: Targeting Deeper Damage 

BBL HERO and Halo is another great combination treatment option. Again, BBL HERO will help with redness, calming inflammation and more superficial brown pigmentation, while Halo allows us to target deeper down UV damage, deeper wrinkles and deeper scarring. The combination can provide glowing, healthy skin. Halo is suitable for all ages; however, may be more beneficial for those patients with more textural changes such as deeper wrinkles or deeper acne scars.  Because Halo is a hybrid laser with both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, we are able to help resurface some of these textured areas better than non-ablative wavelengths alone.

Deciding what treatments to partner together, it really comes down to what your personal skincare goals are and how quickly you want to reach those goals. It is best to schedule an appointment with one of our providers where we are able to analyze your skin, discuss your goals and come up with a customized skincare plan.
