HERO Before & After
How long will my results from my HERO treatments last?
The areas of pigmentation improved with the broadband light energy delivered by our HERO platform are permanent. Of course, that doesn’t mean your skin won’t develop new age spots, areas of hyperpigmentation, and other signs of sun damage. We do live in sunny South Florida, after all!
The BBL power delivered by the HERO system will improve your skin. That’s a sure thing. What you do moving forward is up to you. After all, those sunspots and other skin issues improved by the HERO BBL system were the results of exposure to the sun’s UV radiation. If you do a good job upping your skin protection, you’ll enjoy your improved skin treated with HERO for the long haul.
But, even if more sunspots and other issues arise, another quick session with the HERO broadband light platform can remove them.
Is the HERO Laser painful?
The HERO broadband laser uses broad-spectrum visible and infrared light to selectively heat layers of the skin, getting rid of undesired pigmentation, redness, and other unwanted conditions. These are completely non-invasive treatments that don’t require topical numbing prior to your session or any recovery after.
The key is the HERO’s precision cooling. Sciton has built an integrated, thermoelectrically cooled, sapphire crystal that keeps the treatment area consistently safe and cool. We are able to precisely control the cooling in relation to the energy level applied, allowing a range of cooling from 0 – 30°C in 1°C increments. The HERO monitors the patient’s skin temperature during every second of treatment, ensuring complete patient comfort and safety.
Is the HERO Laser safe?
As mentioned above, our HERO BBL treatments at Azul employ many innovations that speed treatment times and increase treatment efficiency. This means increased safety as well because the HERO BBL energy is able to gently heat the upper layers of the skin to break down the excess melanin in pigmented areas and to encourage new skin cells and collagen to be produced.
The key to HERO’s safety is its speed. Because it delivers three times the power compared to other IPL and laser treatments, that means the delivery can be just 3 milliseconds, compared with 10 milliseconds for the other treatments. That doesn’t sound like much difference, but the shorter pulse durations are key to safe, comfortable treatments.
Also, HERO delivers two times the cooling ability of comparable systems, another key to patient comfort and safety.
How much does a HERO BBL treatment cost?
Thanks to the awesome capabilities of the HERO BBL platform, we can treat the visible signs of aging across the body. These treatments have been typically meant only for facial skin, but the HERO allows the team at Azul to expand our options. We’re using the HERO on the chest, arms, shoulders, back, and legs, in addition to the entire facial area.
As you would assume, the cost varies depending on your goals. For instance, if you’re seeking to target a small area, such as decolletage, the duration of your treatment will be much shorter than if you were to target, say, your entire back or your legs.
During your consultation, we will learn the area or areas you’d like to address, and we can then give you an exact idea of the cost involved.
Does insurance cover HERO treatments?
These are considered to be cosmetic treatments, not medically necessary. As such, they are not covered by insurance providers. We provide CareCredit for financing, should you care to use that.
