BBL HERO Still Well Med Spa

The skin has the remarkable ability to heal and regenerate and can maintain its own health and appearance over time. However, factors like sun damage and aging can hinder this natural process, leading to visible signs of wear. Advanced treatments like BBL HERO can help rejuvenate and restore your skin’s vitality.

At Still Well Med Spa in Staten Island, NY, we offer the transformative technology of BBL HERO to address sun damage, signs of aging, and more. As the only full-service luxury medical spa in Staten Island, we are dedicated to offering comprehensive and advanced skincare solutions.


BBL HERO is a treatment that uses broadband light to target skin imperfections at their source. It can address issues like pigmentation, redness, and uneven texture. This non-invasive approach also promotes collagen production, which enhances your skin’s natural ability to heal and rejuvenate. BBL HERO offers a versatile solution for achieving healthier, more radiant skin.

The Science Behind BBL HERO

What Is BroadBand Light Technology?

Broadband light is a technology that uses a wide spectrum of light wavelengths to address various skin conditions. This treatment heats the upper layers of the skin while also directly targeting brown and red pigmentation. By precisely controlling the light with a variety of filters, it can treat a wide range of pigmentation and aging concerns.

The Components of the BBL HERO Device

BBL HERO combines multiple components to deliver effective results. The device features advanced cooling mechanisms to protect the skin, along with high-powered light pulses for precise treatment. This device also offers nine different wavelength filters and adaptors to allow for customizability.

How BBL HERO Is Different From Other BBL Devices

BBL HERO has advancements that set it apart from other broadband light devices. HERO offers 4x the treatment speed of previous devices thanks to constant motion technology. It also has 3x the power for more effective results, and 2x the cooling to make each treatment more comfortable. Filters are quick and easy to change during the treatment, as are the filter heads so that different areas and concerns can be treated during one session.

The Difference Between BBL and IPL

Both broadband light (BBL) and intense pulsed light (IPL) are used for skin rejuvenation, but they operate differently. BBL offers a broader range of wavelengths, allowing for more precise targeting of skin issues. IPL, while effective, tends to be less specific in its approach, making BBL a more versatile choice for comprehensive skin treatments.

How BBL HERO Technology Works on the Skin

Light therapy skin treatments like BBL HERO work by delivering controlled light energy to the skin’s surface. This energy is absorbed by the targeted areas, such as pigmented spots or vascular lesions, causing them to break down and be naturally eliminated by the body. The light stimulates collagen production to improve skin firmness and elasticity.

Skin Conditions That Can Be Treated With BBL HERO

  • Hyperpigmentation: BBL HERO treats hyperpigmentation by targeting melanin in the skin. The light pulses break down pigmented cells and even out skin tone.
  • Sun Damage: Sciton® BBL HERO can address sun damage by targeting the damaged skin cells and stimulating collagen production. This process helps reduce the appearance of sunspots and other related imperfections.
  • Rosacea: Broadband light therapy with BBL HERO helps manage rosacea by reducing redness and visible blood vessels. The treatment targets the dilated blood vessels, improving skin appearance and texture.
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: BBL HERO can also reduce fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen and elastin production. This results in firmer, smoother skin with fewer visible signs of aging.
  • Acne: Light therapy for the skin using BBL HERO can treat acne by diminishing the bacteria that cause breakouts. The treatment also reduces inflammation and helps clear up the skin, preventing future outbreaks.
  • Vascular Lesions: Sciton BBL HERO is effective at treating vascular lesions such as spider veins and broken capillaries. The light energy targets and collapses these vessels, which are then reabsorbed by the body, leading to clearer skin.

The Treatment Process for BBL HERO

Broadband light treatments with BBL HERO begin with a thorough consultation to make sure you are right for the treatment. Once you have arrived for your session, a cooling gel is applied to the treatment area to enhance comfort. 

The BBL HERO device then delivers precise light pulses, targeting specific skin issues like pigmentation and redness. You may feel a snapping sensation on the skin as the light is applied. The entire process typically takes about 30 minutes, with minimal discomfort and no downtime required.

How to Maintain Your Results

After your skin rejuvenation treatment with BBL HERO, it’s important to follow a proper skincare routine to maintain the results. Regular use of sunscreen protects your skin from further sun damage. Incorporate a gentle cleanser and a quality moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Periodic maintenance sessions with BBL HERO can help sustain the improvements in skin tone and texture.
