Every one of us can be a hero to our own skin. That starts with a good daily skin care regimen and dedicated use of sunscreen. Still, the older you get, the more likely you are to develop skin imperfections that at-home care can’t resolve. And skin can start to look dull and lifeless at any age. That’s where BBL Hero Light Therapy comes in, to professionally refresh and renew your skin.

BBL Hero is a non-invasive, highly customizable, advanced intense pulsed light therapy system that is safe and effective for all but the darkest skin tones. We can target multiple imperfections at the same time, by simultaneously treating the skin’s surface and deeper dermis as needed. Most treatment sessions take just 15-30 minutes. And while we most often use BBL Hero to treat skin on the face, neck, chest or hands, it is suitable for other body areas as well.

So, what are you most concerned about?

Signs of Aging

If you’re starting to see any of these issues, BBL can be your Hero. Treatment refreshes and repairs skin to produce immediately visible improvement and it stimulates new collagen production to keep your skin looking healthier and smoother.

  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmentation problems such as age spots and sunspots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rosacea or blushing or flushing
  • Vascular or cutaneous lesions
  • Loose skin 

Although BBL Hero treatment is plenty powerful when it comes to producing results, it is gentler than alternative treatments, so patients achieve the best results incrementally, through multiple treatment sessions. We may recommend 2-4 treatments, scheduled 2-4 weeks apart, depending on your skin condition and desired results. We also offer BBL Hero ongoing skin maintenance, which has been shown to delay visible signs of aging.


BBL Hero really shines here because it tackles acne in three different ways, by:

  1. Stimulating production of healthy new skin to diminish the appearance of scars and reduce inflammation and redness
  2. Killing bacteria to treat active acne
  3. Helping prevent new outbreaks

In just 3-6 treatment sessions, you can achieve clearer, smoother skin. That means you can skip prescription medications or expensive creams and their side effects. However, depending on your specific skin condition, you may be able to achieve even greater results by combining BBL Hero with another treatment or dermal fillers. This is something you can discuss with Dr. Hernandez.

Unwanted Hair

You may not think of unwanted hair as a “skin problem,” but we know you’re sick of shaving or waxing to get rid of hair in certain areas. And isn’t the point to get clear, smooth skin? BBL Hero comes to the rescue, reducing or entirely removing that pesky hair — finally!

Because hair grows in phases and BBL Hero can only kill actively growing follicles, it takes several treatments to fully get rid of unwanted hair – typically anywhere from 6 to 10. We schedule them 4-8 weeks apart, so the entire process may take a little time overall, but then you’re hair-free. And free from the tedious hassle, discomfort and cost of shaving and waxing.

Refreshed. Renewed. Clear.

Whether you’re looking to repair or head off visible signs of aging, sun damage, acne-related problems, or unwanted hair, you can be your skin’s hero with BBL Hero. Since every treatment is entirely personalized, the best way to learn more about BBL Hero is to schedule a private consultation.
