Once you reach a certain age, you begin noticing a variety of imperfections on your skin. Your wrinkles are getting deeper, there are broken blood vessels everywhere, and your face seems to sag more year after year. Younger individuals are not spared from these inconveniences, especially if they are prone to acne or pigmentation issues.

When that’s the case, procedures like BBL® HERO™ can reduce various imperfections you are dealing with. Whether you are looking to rejuvenate an aged complexion or want to clear out imperfections, this treatment can be very effective for your needs.

What Is BBL® HERO™?

BBL® HERO™ uses a technology called IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) to deliver short bursts of concentrated light through your skin. This creates small, controlled injuries to the top layer, triggering your body’s natural healing system. As a result, new collagen and elastin fibers are produced, improving the signs of aging and offering a more rejuvenated look.

Aside from collagen, IPL can also break down excessive pigment in the skin, offering an even skin tone for those who have excess pigmentation areas. The laser can reduce the size of your sebaceous glands, which not only improves the texture of your face but also decreases the chances of acne breakouts. This can help you obtain clear, beautiful skin that is radiant even at an advanced age.

Benefits of BBL® HERO™

Here are the advantages you can get with BBL® HERO™:

1. Reduces Wrinkles

The human body loses about 1 percent of its ability to create more collagen per year, leading to various age-related imperfections. Since your body is no longer able to produce the proteins needed to sustain your youthful appearance, wrinkles and fine lines will form with every facial movement you make. As BBL® HERO™ can help your body create more collagen, the wrinkles begin to fill out with time with your skin becoming much smoother.

2. Improves Skin Elasticity

Aside from the new production of collagen, the controlled damage delivered by BBL® HERO™ can also lead to more elastin fibers being created. This helps improve the elasticity of your skin, tightening it and reducing the appearance of sagging skin. The treatment might be a very effective solution for those who have jowls or an overall “droopy” look to their faces.

3. Reduces Pigmentation Spots

BBL® HERO™ can break pigment underneath the skin, which usually forms age spots or hyperpigmentation. These micro-wounds in the skin start the cell renewal process, prompting the body to push the healthy skin cells to the surface. Your body will naturally shed off the pigment-riddled skin cells and offer you a brighter, even-toned complexion.

4. Helps Clear Acne

Acne often happens when bacteria or dirt become trapped in your pores, leading to inflammation. This becomes even more common when the pores are enlarged, usually due to loss of collagen or excess sebum production. BBL® HERO™ can reduce the size of the pores, diminishing the chances of bacteria being trapped inside while decreasing sebum production.

5. Reduces Rosacea

Rosacea often causes the blood vessels to be more visible under the skin, giving you a flushed appearance. Each time you make any sort of effort that gets the blood pumping, the redness becomes even more evident. BBL® HERO™ can close off those blood vessels, reducing your rosacea symptoms.
