As well as treating the face, the Broadband Light (BBL) Hero can also specialise in treating the full body! The BBL is a device that utilises light to target skin and cell rejuvenation. The BBL targets gene expression to program the cells to be younger. The BBL Hero is a revolutionary Broadband Light system and is the fastest Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) device on the market.

The BBL Hero can target different imperfections across the body and decrease their appearance. The BBL Hero has a large treatment scope, making it the ideal treatment for body concerns. The back, torso and legs are common areas that patients use the BBL Hero Body treatment for as this is where skin conditions are prevalent. The BBL Hero Body treatment can treat age, sun and environmentally impacted skin conditions.

Benefits of BBL Hero Body

The BBL Hero can treat a variety of skin conditions and concerns across the body. The BBL Hero Body can treat common problems that arise with ageing such as adding firmness to where skin has sagged and loss structure. The BBL device stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to tighten and add volume to the skin in areas that sag with ageing such as the neck and chest. The elastin and collagen can also treat areas where fine lines and wrinkles form as they strengthen the skin.

Those who use the BBL Hero Body treatment will find their skin feeling rejuvenated and looking younger. The treatment reduces the appearance of scars, burn marks, acne scarring and stretch marks to create a smooth skin tone. Those with hyperpigmentation such as melasma and dark, sun and age spots, will find their symptoms reduced and less visible. The BBL Hero can also minimise pores and redness, leaving your skin soft and restored.

Your consultation at Shellharbour Skin

Before your BBL Hero Body treatment, you will need to have a consultation with our Shellharbour Skin team to discuss your suitability to the treatment. Dr Barney Gordon will consider your skin type, medical history, prescribed medication and supplement intake and previous cosmetic work to decide the direction your treatment will take. He will also discuss your individual treatment goals and skin concerns to create a personalised treatment plan. To discuss your queries and concerns, contact our clinic today to book your next consultation.

What to expect

We recommend avoiding sun exposure 2 weeks before your appointment as this procedure is sensitive on the skin. It is recommended that patients are bare faced (no makeup, fake tan or other products) before the treatment.

After your consultation, Dr Barney Gordon will test a small patch of treatment on your body to ensure it works for you. The BBL Hero Body sends thermal energy and IPL wavelengths at the skin to target unwanted skin conditions. The BBL Hero moves quickly across the treatment area, flashing light at the skin’s pigment. The pigment then darkens before the body consumes it over several days. The energy targets the melanin of the skin by heating it up which the skin then absorbs. By absorbing the melanin the BBL Hero creates an even skin complexion. The BBL Hero Body uses heat to target gene expression and stimulate the creation of new cells, resulting in a younger-looking complexion. The treatment is completed in 30 minutes so patients can return to their physical routine after the treatment. The results of the BBL Hero take one week to show and are at their best four weeks after the treatment.

Results & aftercare for BBL Hero Body

The BBL Hero Body does not require any aftercare however we recommend some precautions to ensure the skin is adequately protected. We recommend that patients avoid excessive sun exposure post treatment and maintain sun safety including the use of sunscreen and sun protective clothing. Patients are also recommended to continue their skincare routine to hydrate and protect the skin post-treatment. Patients should be aware that pigmentation of the skin will go darker after treatment before it is absorbed by the skin.

The BBL Hero Body produces extensive results on the body. Wrinkles and fine lines are reduced, and the appearance of hyperpigmentation such as redness, rosacea, sun spots, age spots and dark spots are all diminished. Patients find that the BBL Hero reduces the visibility of their pores and tightens their skin. The treatment creates a smoother skin tone, an even texture and increases the hydration of the skin. Discuss your treatment area with our team to determine how many treatments are needed to showcase the best results possible. For more cases we recommend 3-4 treatments to showcase the best possible results.

Risks & complications

The BBL Hero Body has several risks and complications associated with it in rare cases. Some patients have found that their skin feels warm due to it absorbing the light energy of the BBL treatment. This can be reduced with cold compress or laser aid gel which will be applied if this occurs. Rarely patients experience burns, blisters or broken skin after their BBL Hero Body treatment however when this happens applying aloe vera gel will reduce the pain and heat from the skin. If symptoms persist well after the treatment, please contact our clinic to further discuss how to treat your skin. It is important to note that the BBL Hero is safer than previous IPL treatments.
