Faster, Safer, More Comfortable BBL Skin Rejuvenation
Most of us have busy schedules, so spending hours in skin rejuvenation sessions can be difficult or impossible for some. Welcome to the quicker and safer way with our Grand Rapids Sciton BBL Hero Laser.
This next-generation treatment has been shown to restore and treat wrinkles and damaged skin 4x faster than traditional BBL therapy. HERO is an acronym for “high energy, rapid output,” meaning that this broadband light treatment offers the results you’ve been looking for in a fraction of the time.
Committed to training and research, at the Bengtson Center for Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery in Grand Rapids, MI, our goal is to stay at the front edge of aesthetic possibilities.
We want to provide you with the best and most effective technologies and procedures for your aesthetic needs. A streamlined experience and brilliant results are paramount as Dr. Bengtson, Dr. Alfonso, and our Medical Aestheticians and Aesthetic Experts, and staff help you revitalize your skin with Sciton BBL Hero.
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.
Are you ready to see improvement in your skin in less time than it takes to make it through the line at your favorite coffee shop? Some sessions only require a total timeframe of 5-10 minutes. In that session, you could see improvements in the following:
The Sciton BBL Hero laser allows your provider to customize treatment with interchangeable size adapters and wavelength filters, making this treatment highly versatile and safe. This versatility also allows for a wide variety of treatment areas, including the face, chest, arms, hands, and legs. It can be used almost anywhere you have concerns about:
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.
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.
At Bengtson Center for Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery, we want to ensure that you are looking and feeling your best.
After many years of education, experience, and patient care, Grand Rapids plastic surgeons Dr. Bengtson’s and Dr. Alfono’s core philosophy is that the best aesthetic treatments are those that no one can tell happened. Our team of doctors, Aesthetic Experts and Medical Aestheticians are committed to offering the most effective and innovative treatment options available. We would be thrilled to help guide you through your Sciton BBL Hero treatment, from consultation to follow-up.

Minimal pain is associated with the Sciton BBL Hero Laser Treatment. You may experience a warm feeling, but generally, patients only experience mild discomfort and often don’t even need to use a topical analgesic.
The Sciton BBL Hero is one of the safest broadband light therapy options available due to its advanced technology. However, as with every laser skin resurfacing treatment, there is the possibility of redness and swelling in the treatment area.
Most patients can start using makeup immediately after the treatment, and we recommend using a gentle moisturizer for several days as the skin recovers.
Excessive sweating and high body heat may interfere with the healing process. Typically after a week, normal exercise can be resumed.
Once optimal results are achieved after 2-5 treatment sessions, maintenance appointments are recommended every 3-6 months to retain the restoration benefits.
The cost of Sciton BBL Hero Laser treatments depends on the number of sessions needed and in what area(s) the procedure will be performed. Detailed pricing information will be covered at your consultation.
Laser skin resurfacing is usually considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance.
