How to Prepare for BBL HERO™

While there is little to do before your appointment, we suggest the following to ensure the best results:

  • Come to your session without any makeup on the area being treated.

What to Expect Post BBL HERO™

You may experience some redness and swelling in the treated area following the procedure, but this should disappear within a few days. You will likely see some improvement in the appearance of your skin immediately after the treatment, with further improvement over the next few months, especially when follow-up appointments are booked.

How does Dr. Christopher Pavlou perform BBL HERO™

The light energy delivered by BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, making it clearer, smoother, vibrant and younger-looking. The High Energy Rapid Output (HERO) broadband light (BBL) laser combines the power of our traditional BBL lasers with 4x the speed (faster than IPL), 3x the Peak Power (more effective) and 2x the Cooling Effect (more comfortable than IPL).
