Conveniently located to serve Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and Los Angeles.
Minimal downtime skin rejuvenation procedures are in high demand at the medical practice of board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Jason Emer. One of his go-to solutions for improving the texture and tone of the skin without the need for a lengthy recovery is a light therapy device called BBL Hero. Dr. Emer is considered a top provider of BBL Hero in Beverly Hills, and he has helped countless patients refresh their look with this treatment.
WHAT IS BBL HERO?
BBL Hero is a broadband light therapy device that Dr. Emer can use to resolve many skin concerns. This treatment can restore healthier, firmer skin throughout the face and body. Some of the most common treatment areas are the face, neck, chest, and arms. Dr. Emer has found BBL Hero particularly effective when it comes to:
- Brightening the skin
- Controlling inflammation (hormonal acne flares, seasonal flares, eczema)
- Decreasing redness
- Tightening the skin
Like traditional photofacial, or intense-pulsed light (IPL) treatments, BBL Hero works by heating the outer layer of skin with pulses of light. The body responds to the heat by initiating the production of collagen and elastin, which are the foundational elements of firm, healthy skin.
However, BBL Hero separates itself from other IPL devices as a more advanced and efficient system. The key to BBL Hero’s efficacy can be found in its name. “BBL” references the device’s uses of broadband light, and “Hero” is an acronym for High Energy Rapid Output. BBL Hero incorporates faster pulsing, sophisticated cooling technology, and a higher energy output than other light therapy devices.
Dr. Emer chooses BBL Hero over his other IPL devices in almost every case when a patient needs light therapy because its advanced features translate to less painful and more beneficial treatments. BBL Hero is also unique in being safe for patients of mixed ethnicities who are at high risk for adverse effects with other light therapy devices.
The device’s different setting options allow Dr. Emer to increase or decrease the intensity of the treatment based on your needs. Dr. Emer can customize BBL Hero treatments by using different filters and with the number of passes made while a particular filter is in place.
Right for you?
Am I a Good Candidate for BBL HERO?
Since BBL Hero is a gentle, highly-customizable treatment, candidates can be adults of many ages, skin types, and ethnicities. Ideal candidates are those concerned about age spots, rosacea, acne, sun damage, and/or large pores.
Good general health is a prerequisite for patients considering any cosmetic treatment, including BBL Hero. Patients must also have an accurate understanding of what broadband light therapy can accomplish.
While BBL Hero light therapy is safe for most people, it is not intended to resolve certain skin conditions, such as severe skin laxity. Patients with light-sensitive skin conditions, such as melasma, may be candidates for very light BBL Hero treatments or may be better suited for an alternate treatment approach.
What Skin Conditions Can Be Treated with BBL Hero?
Dr. Emer offers BBL Hero treatments to address:
- Discoloration caused by vascular damage, such as rosacea, cherry angiomas, and spider veins
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven or rough skin texture
- Mild skin laxity
- Pigmentation issues, such as age spots
What to Expect During Your BBL Hero Treatment
Dr. Emer performs BBL Hero treatments in-office. The treatment is painless and does not require numbing the skin beforehand. Protective eyewear will be provided and must remain in place for the duration of the treatment.
Dr. Emer will attach the appropriate tip for your treatment to the device. He will glide the tip over the skin as the device emits flashes of light. Multiple passes may be necessary for optimal results.
BBL Hero Recovery and Aftercare
Like the treatment itself, BBL Hero recovery is associated with little-to-no discomfort. A sensation of having a mild sunburn can occur but is easily tolerated. The skin may be pink or red for a short time and will feel warm for up to an hour after the procedure. Patients generally feel comfortable resuming their normal activities right away.
The most important aspect of your aftercare is protecting the treated skin from sun exposure as it heals. Avoid direct sunlight whenever possible, and apply sunscreen diligently.
A customized skincare regimen is vital to support your BBL Hero results and keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. Dr. Emer can advise you of appropriate skincare products and practices for your age and skin type.
BBL Hero Results
Brown spots will be less noticeable within three to five days of your BBL Hero procedure. Over the following weeks, a brighter, smoother complexion will emerge as new, healthy skin cells replace the damaged cells.
Sun exposure will continue to be a major threat to your refreshed complexion beyond the recovery period. This is especially so among patients with lighter skin who are more prone to developing brown spots. Patients who commit to limiting time spent in the sun and to properly using sunscreen tend to enjoy longer-lasting skin rejuvenation benefits than those who do not.
How Many BBL Hero Treatments Will I Need?
Dr. Emer’s typical recommendation is to have a BBL Hero treatment every four to six weeks until your desired improvements are achieved. Many patients find that two sessions provide the results they were looking for. After the initial sessions, you can schedule BBL Hero treatments at three-to-four-month intervals to maintain your results.
The Dr. Emer Difference
How Does Dr. Emer Do BBL HERO Differently?
Dr. Emer has established himself as a leading authority in his field and is widely renowned for his inventive and incredibly effective combination treatment approaches. Dr. Emer has amassed a comprehensive collection of carefully selected energy-based devices to meet the needs of his diverse patients, and he uses strategic combinations of these advanced systems along with chemical peels, at-home skin care, and other modalities to achieve unparalleled results.
Two of his most sought-after BBL Hero combination protocols are:
Hollywood Spotlight Treatment
Dr. Emer developed the Hollywood Spotlight combination treatment for patients who want red-carpet-ready skin without considerable downtime. This treatment works by combining:
- BBL Hero to lift brown and red pigmentation
- MOXI, a non-ablative, fractional laser, to improve the texture of the skin
- Aerify Complexion Revival Peel Kit to enhance and extend results from the comfort of your home
Tight & Bright with BBL Hero
This treatment combines BBL Hero light therapy with Pixel8-RF, which is a radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device. RF microneedling can provide improvements in skin laxity, as well as collagen-stimulation benefits, making Pixel8-RF a great way to enhance the rejuvenating and brightening effects of BBL Hero.
Immediately after performing your BBL Hero and Pixel8-RF procedures, a mask from Dr. Emer’s Emerage Skin product line will be applied over the treated skin. Dr. Emer will instruct you to leave the mask in place for several hours, so it can be absorbed in the deeper layers of the skin via the tiny channels created during the RF microneedling process.
How Much Does Skin Rejuvenation with BBL Hero Cost in Beverly Hills?
The price of your BBL Hero treatment will reflect the size of the treatment area(s) and the number of light therapy sessions needed to accomplish your desired outcome. Dr. Emer will be able to provide specific cost details during your consultation after creating your personalized treatment plan.
