What is Sciton BBL Hero Laser?

The BBL Hero Laser offers the latest in BBL treatments. Like other broadband light therapy options, the Sciton BBL Hero uses intense pulsed light to address sun damage and signs of aging at the cellular level. However, what makes the BBL Hero stand out is that the therapy is 4x faster, a shorter pulse size makes it safer, and it has 2x the cooling capabilities making it more comfortable than standard BBL treatments.

Consultation and Preparation

At your consultation for Sciton BBL Hero Laser Grand Rapids aesthetic experts at The Bengtson Center will discuss each step of the process and provide detailed information on how to prepare.

They will also cover any health or medical concerns that might need to be taken into consideration when deciding if this treatment is right for you. Preparation instructions will include avoiding sun exposure, tanning beds, and tanning lotions for several weeks before BBL Hero treatment and pausing any use of products that can cause photosensitivity, such as Retin-A or Differin.


Most BBL Hero procedures can be completed in 5-20 minutes.

After a topical numbing cream is applied and you are supplied with protective eye coverings, your provider will smoothly run the device over the treatment area, targeting it with high-intensity light pulses. Most patients experience minimal discomfort due to the built-in cooling technology and temperature customization.

Recovery, Results, and Aftercare

After receiving treatment with the Sciton BBL Hero Laser, there is virtually no downtime.

Right after the session, your skin will likely appear pink and feel like you have a mild sunburn. Any redness should disappear within two weeks, and sun exposure must be avoided during this time.

For about a month following treatment, you must be highly attentive about applying sunscreen before any sun exposure, even brief. Most patients begin to see results from their Sciton BBL Hero treatment within a few days. Obvious improvements in the skin should be visible within 2-3 weeks. Your skin will continue to improve as new collagen production, the greatest benefit of treatment, will be noticeable within 2-3 months of treatment.
