Difference between BBL and BBL Hero


Not all lasers are the same. There is a reason why use BBL Hero by Sciton at our clinics. Let’s clear things out!

Regular BBL (Broadband Light) and BBL HERO are both advanced technologies used to address skin pigmentation issues, but they have some differences in terms of their features and benefits. Let’s compare the two to help you understand their distinctions:


Wavelengths and Filters:

Treatment Speed:

Comfort and Safety:

Downtime and Recovery:


Rapid, full-body treatments in a single session BBL HERO has four times the speed, three times the peak power, and two times the cooling capacity of the original BBL, says Dr. Ibrahim. “These features establish it as being leaps and bounds beyond any other IPL that exists.”

BBL HERO’s advanced features, such as a large spot size (15x45mm), high repetition rate, magnetic spot-size adapters, and change-on-the-fly “smart filters,” allow clinicians to address a multitude of conditions on the face and body, including large areas, such as the back, arms, and legs, in as little as two to five minutes.

In the past, the standard method of IPL treatments targeted spots of visible pigmented and vascular lesions. According to Dr. Cohen, multiple large areas can now be treated in a single session with BBL HERO.

In summary, BBL HERO by Sciton offers several advantages over regular BBL when it comes to treating skin pigmentation. It is more efficient, faster, and can provide better results in fewer sessions. However, the choice between regular BBL and BBL HERO should be based on your specific skin concerns, budget, and the recommendations of a qualified dermatologist or healthcare provider. They can assess your individual needs and help you decide which technology is the most suitable for your pigmentation issues.
