Sciton BBL®


Laser treatments are one of the best ways to tackle many tough skin concerns that don’t otherwise respond to skincare products. Sciton®’s BBL Hero platform is one of our best options for addressing a wide variety of skin concerns with minimal downtime.


BBL Hero is a laser platform developed by Sciton, one of the leading brands in cosmetic laser technology. It can effectively stimulate the growth of new skin cells and rejuvenate existing skin. It’s known as a non-ablative laser, meaning it doesn’t damage the surface of the skin and thus comes with minimal downtime. This makes it a very safe and effective treatment option for many different skin tones and types.


BBL™ stands for broadband light, a more advanced form of intense pulsed light (IPL) devices with high energy rapid output. It works by administering light energy to the skin where it is absorbed by specific parts of the skin, stimulating collagen production through gentle heat. By boosting collagen production, your body can form healthy new skin and reduce the appearance of a variety of skin conditions. BBL can be customized to an exact wavelength based on your needs. This allows it to be an effective option for pigmented areas like brown spots or visible veins.


BBL Hero can be used on many different areas of the body including the face, neck, hands, and decolletage.

By building new collagen and stimulating aging skin cells, BBL Hero can treat a variety of skin concerns for noticeably smoother, more youthful skin. In fact, most patients notice results with as few as 1-2 treatments.


BBL Hero can be customized to your unique skin concerns. Before treatment, it’s important to avoid tanning or sun exposure which can change the effectiveness of your procedure. You’ll meet with Dr. Gilpin and our laser technicians to determine the best treatment plan for your goals – if you have significant skin laxity, you may need to explore your options for a surgical procedure instead. People with darker skin may or may not be eligible for BBL treatment, although we have many other non-surgical options to help treat the visible signs of aging and will help you find the optimal treatment for your concerns and skin type.

BBL Hero is one of the most effective light-based laser platforms available for photorejuvenation, with a higher peak power output than many other intense pulsed light devices. In this sense, it’s a much quicker way to achieve clearer, more youthful-looking skin than similar non-surgical approaches using professional-grade skincare or facial treatments. It also comes with minimal downtime and can allow you to get right back to your regular schedule.


Although there’s no downtime after BBL Hero, it’s normal to have a red or flushed appearance (similar to sunburn) for a few hours after each session. If you undergo BBL Hero treatment for brown spots or pigmentation, you’ll notice that the spot will appear darker for 1-2 weeks before peeling off. This happens as the damaged pigment rises to the surface of the skin. It’s important to avoid sun exposure or tanning after treatment since your skin will be especially sensitive to sun damage.

Most patients require a package of 2-5 treatments for best results, and our team will ensure you understand your treatment schedule and aftercare instructions.
