IPL Photofacial Is Better With BBL Hero


IPL Photofacial and BBL Hero

IPL Photofacial just got a whole lot better with BBL Hero: A Non-Invasive Treatment for a More Radiant, Younger-Looking Skin

You've heard of IPL Photofacial (Intermittent Pulse Light), but now we have more sophisticated technology to deliver better results faster! If you're looking for a non-invasive treatment to improve the appearance of your skin such as dark spots, redness (rosacea), spider veins, then the Forever Young BBL Hero by Sciton is a great option to consider. BBL Hero is a broadband light (BBL) treatment that uses the power of light to address a variety of skin concerns.

BBL Hero is more than a "IPL Photofacial", It's a lifestyle

How does BBL Hero work?

BBL Hero works by delivering pulses of light energy to the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the pigment in the skin, which causes the target cells to be destroyed. The body then naturally removes the damaged cells, revealing fresh, new skin underneath with collagen.

BBL Hero is a safe and effective treatment for most skin types. It is also a relatively quick and painless procedure. Most treatments take only 20-30 minutes to complete. In fact, Dr. Bitter pioneered the Stanford Study and turned back time using BBL Hero. 

What skin concerns does BBL Hero treat?

BBL Hero is a broadband light (BBL) treatment that uses the power of light to address a variety of skin concerns, including:

  • Age spots
  • Forever Clear Acne
  • Sun damage
  • Brown spots
  • Freckles
  • Rosacea
  • Redness
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pore size
  • Acne scarring
  • Forever Clear
  • Uneven skin tone

Forever Young BBL is a particularly effective treatment for sun damage, as it can help to reduce the appearance of age spots, brown spots, and freckles. It can also help to improve skin tone and texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Why quality matters with IPL/BBL

Not all who clinics who operate lasers are equal. IPL is old school technology and slow.  BBL has redefined IPL to be faster, powerful, and very effective. For example, IPL would take 4-6 hours to treat an entire body. We can do a full body BBL in less than an hour. 

Is IPL or BBL safe for dark skin?

IPL or BBL should typically be reserved on lighter skin tones such as Fitzpatrick 1-3. For darker skin tones we may recommend Moxi or Aerolase Neo.

How much does IPL/BBL cost

IPL/BBL will start around $500 for your face. It is very common to add the neck and chest at the same time since much of the sun damage is present on all three areas. The treatment takes less than 30 mins to complete. 

5 dos and don'ts when considering a BBL Hero laser

  1. Do consult with a qualified BBL specialist. We can help you determine if Forever Young BBL is right for you and can discuss your treatment options.
  2. Be honest about your medical history and any medications you are taking. This will help us to determine if Forever Young BBL is safe for you.
  3. Do follow our instructions before and after treatment. This will help to ensure that you get the best results and minimize the risk of side effects.
  4. Do protect your skin from the sun after treatment with sunscreen and clothing. This will help to maintain your results.
  5. Do be patient. It may take a few weeks or even months to see the full results of your Forever Young BBL treatment.

5 Don'ts When Considering a Forever Young BBL

  1. Don't have the treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  2. Don't have the treatment if you have active acne or sunburn or recent sun.
  3. Don't have the treatment if you are taking certain medications, such as antibiotics or blood thinners.
  4. Don't expect to see results immediately after treatment. It may take a few weeks or even months to see the full results of your Forever Young BBL treatment.
  5. Don't skimp on the sunscreen. It is important to protect your skin from the sun after treatment to maintain your results.

Can Forever Young BBL Be Combined With Other Treatments?

ABSOLUTELY! In fact, we almost always combine with BBL with Moxi, Halo, Fractional CO2 Laser, Subcision, Bellafill, and PRP. 

Combination treatments can be a great way to achieve your skin rejuvenation goals. However, it's important to consult with an expert to determine which combination treatment is right for you.

Here are some of the benefits of combination treatments:

  • More comprehensive results: Combination treatments can address a wider range of skin concerns than a single treatment.
  • More dramatic results: Combination treatments can often produce more dramatic results than a single treatment.
  • Less downtime: Some combination treatments can be performed with less downtime than a single treatment.
  • Safer: Combination treatments can be safer than a single treatment, as they can reduce the risk of side effects.

Don't settle for anything less when having major work done on your face. 

Is HALO better than Microneedling?

Whether Halo laser or microneedling is better for you depends on your individual skin concerns and goals.

Both treatments are effective in improving the overall appearance of the skin, but they work in different ways.

Halo laser is a hybrid ablative and non-ablative fractional laser treatment that resurfaces the skin and stimulates collagen production. It is effective in treating a wide range of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and sun damage, melasma, acne scars, and large pores.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. This triggers the body's natural healing response, resulting in new collagen and elastin production. Microneedling is effective in treating a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks.

One of the main differences between Halo laser and microneedling is the downtime associated with each treatment. Halo laser has a longer downtime than microneedling, typically 5-7 days. Microneedling has a shorter downtime, typically 1-3 days.

Another difference between the two treatments is the cost. Halo laser is typically more expensive than microneedling.

Ultimately, the best way to decide which treatment is right for you is to book a Free Consultation with our expert laser provider, Mark Abbott, FNP, to discuss your goals to develop a personalized treatment plan.

Combining BBL with HALO™ Vs MOXI™: Which Laser Treatment Is Right For You?

With so many options available, you may be wondering what the best laser treatment in Maryland is for you. At Bolus Med Spa in Elkridge, Maryland, we offer BBL  MOXI and HALO laser skin resurfacing treatments as well as RF Microneedling, CO2 Laser, Bellafill for acne scars, Subcision, and advanced lasers such as TRL (Tunable Resurfacing Laser). Depending on your goals and skincare needs, we will recommend a customized laser skin resurfacing treatment to suit your needs.


MOXI is a non-ablative laser, which means it does not create an open wound in the skin. MOXI uses a random fractionated pattern at a specific strength to distribute microscopic depots of laser energy on the skin surface. This results in no actual open wound, but it creates a MEND, which is a microscopic epidermal tissue response that really brightens the skin. This is like “lightly” aerating a lawn.


The HALO Laser is a hybrid of ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, and penetrates deeper into the skin than MOXI. It also uses a fractionated pattern at specific strengths that create MENDs. The HALO has one laser wavelength that goes deeper to treat damage at the dermal level and one that treats at the surface of the skin. This would be more like aggressively “aerating” the lawn. We can customize HALO to each patient’s specific needs.

How many BBL treatments will I need?

Thats up to you. Heres why: The number of BBL laser treatments you need will depend on your individual skin concerns and goals and the provider operating the laser. Most patients need 3-5 treatments to achieve their desired results, and then 2-3 per year for ongoing anti-aging benefits.  


Here are some factors that may affect the number and frequency of BBL laser treatments you need:

  • The severity of your skin concerns
  • Your skin type
  • Your age
  • Your desired results

It is important to note that BBL laser is a medical procedure, and there are some risks and side effects associated with it. The most common side effects are redness and swelling. While blisters or burns can happen, we take every precaution to minimize this.  These side effects are usually mild and resolve within a few days. In rare cases, more serious side effects can occur, such as infection or hyperpigmentation.
