Achieve an overall healthier skin canvas.


The Sciton BBL HERO (High Energy Rapid Output) is a revolutionary technology in the field of aesthetic treatments and skin rejuvenation.

It’s particularly effective on larger areas such as the décolletage, back, arms, and hands. Our comprehensive rejuvenation treatment tackles skin quality, discoloration, and pigmentation, delivering results worth your time and effort. BBL Hero has the ability to deliver fast, effective, and comfortable treatments.

What is the BBL Laser?

The Broadband Light (BBL) laser is a revolutionary product from Sciton that produces light beyond the visible spectrum, aiming at various skin irregularities. 

Suitable for individuals concerned about Skin Aging, Pigmentation & Rosacea with benefits extending from those in their mid-twenties on.

The BBL laser is versatile and is primarily used for following purposes:

  1. Skin rejuvenation: The BBL laser enhances the overall texture and tone of the skin, diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.
  2. Pigmentation correction: It effectively targets and minimizes the visibility of sunspots, freckles, and other pigmentation issues.
  3. Acne treatments: A series of BBL treatments within a specific timeframe can significantly reduce acne breakouts by targeting and eliminating the bacteria responsible for acne. Furthermore, certain frequencies used with the BBL can mitigate the inflammation and redness associated with acne.
  4. Vascular lesion reduction: The BBL helps reduce spider veins, rosacea, and broken capillaries, enhancing the appearance of your face or body.
  5. Hair removal: While not its primary function, the BBL can be used for hair removal, specifically targeting hair follicles in smaller areas such as the face and neck.

It can help with skin aging, pigmentation irregularities, and some premeditation regulators. However, it is not suitable for those with the darkest skin tones (skin type six). The treatment is part of a series, ideal for those seeking long-term skin maintenance.

How it works:

It employs a broadband light, allowing for quick treatment over large skin areas. Patients may feel a warm sensation and a slight snapping feeling, more surprising than painful. A cooling gel or ultrasound gel is used to enhance comfort during the procedure.


Stanford studies have shown a significant reversal in skin aging with a series of BBL treatments.

The procedure is swift, doesn't require anesthesia, and is not painful.

BBL Laser Treatment Overview

Our Broad Band Light (BBL) treatment procedure is a fully personalised treatment that caters to each client’s unique skincare needs.


We conduct a thorough assessment to ensure your suitability. This includes checking for light-sensitive medications and conditions affected by flashing lights, such as photosensitive epilepsy. It’s important to stay out of the sun and refrain from using self-tanning or fake tanning products for at least two to three weeks prior to the treatment. These precautions ensure a safe and effective treatment process.


You will wear protective goggles for the duration of the procedure. We will also apply an ultrasonic gel to your face, which aids treatment application and cools the skin for increased comfort. The treatment is customized, with various modes and passes designed to address your specific skin concerns.


We apply a protective layer of mineral-based SPF to shield the skin. Aftercare includes avoiding heat-inducing activities such as exercise, saunas, and hot tubs for 48 to 72 hours to let the skin settle. We also recommend you continue avoiding sun exposure for the subsequent two weeks and apply sunscreen liberally.


Side effects of the treatment can include temporary skin puffiness and a slight edema. You may also notice that the pigment in your skin is visibly lifted post-treatment. This pigment will gradually come to the surface and naturally slough off. Some skin crusting is normal—this is just the pigment lifting. There’s no need to scratch or pick at it—it will typically fall off during your regular shower routine.


Like flipping a light switch, BBL kick-starts collagen production for a radiant glow.

Who is it for?

Alright, so let’s chat about the major areas that our BBL laser treatment can tackle. Whether you’re dealing with acne or hoping to turn back the hands of time with some anti-aging benefits, we’ve got you covered. Now, you might be wondering, how many sessions will I need? Well, it’s not a one-size-fits-all answer. It really depends on the condition you’re trying to combat.

You see, our treatments are as unique as you are! Most of us have more than one issue we’d like to address. And, that’s okay! No matter your age, whether you’re in your twenties or enjoying your golden years, we can tailor our aesthetic treatments to fit your needs.

Improving skin clarity and fighting ageing? That’s a win-win for just about everyone. But when it comes to sun damage, it’s typically less common among younger folks. That said, if you spent too many days basking in the sun during your youth, we can help repair some of that damage.

Now, if you’re in the fight against acne, we’ve got a secret weapon. Our BBL laser uses a special lower filter that eliminates acne-causing bacteria. So, if acne’s been your long-time nemesis, this could be the game-changer you need!

How long until I see results?

Our BBL Laser treatment guarantees visible results. Right off the bat, you’ll notice a significant difference – your skin will have a more uniform tone as pigmentation lightens and any vascular lesions are addressed. The immediate effect is just the first surprise; the real magic happens over time.

As you step into the second day post-treatment, the pigmentation will start to surface, giving your skin a healthy glow. This process also stimulates collagen production, which gradually improves your skin’s condition. 

The beauty of this treatment? Your skin keeps healing and looking better each passing day.

It’s important to note that everyone is different and on their own timeline. If someone has very active lifestyle habits they may find themselves needing more frequent treatments; however some people who don’t exercise much can still experience results with no issue as longs their body is able process toxins

Referring to the Stanford study, the researchers conducted skin biopsies to assess the cellular layers. They compared the skin of 20-year-olds with 50-year-olds, and applied the BBL treatments to the latter group.

Over a series of treatments, they found that the 50-year-olds' skin began to resemble the cellular structure of the 20-year-olds' skin. It's not just a temporary solution; BBL treatment can actually reverse skin ageing, giving you a youthful appearance. Isn't that fantastic?

BBL Laser vs IPL Laser

When it comes to skin treatments, BroadBand Light (BBL) and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) are two contenders that often come up. They operate on similar frequencies, but BBL is considered an advanced version of IPL. BBL uses a broader range of wavelengths that can be adjusted to target specific skin concerns in a more precise manner, allowing for a more tailored treatment based on the individual’s skin type and condition.

Compared to traditional IPL devices, BBL devices are recognized as more powerful and precise. They can deliver light energy more quickly and uniformly, reducing issues with striping and adverse events. A noteworthy feature of BBL is its built-in cooling mechanism, the Sapphire crystal, the temperature of which can be adjusted between zero and 30 degrees. This customization provides an additional layer of control during treatment, making it more efficient whether working superficially or deeper into the skin.

Although both IPL and BBL can treat a variety of skin conditions safely with a lower risk of side effects, the precision and control offered by BBL put it a step ahead of IPL treatments.

We’re incredibly proud of the feedback we get. We’d encourage you to read all of our many 5 star TrustPilot reviews from happy customers who love their results.

Nothing But Professional

As always, Dr Dallas was nothing but professional! I had lip augmentation and Anti-Wrinkle with Dallas and he done an excellent job. My mother also had Anti-Wrinkle and Profhilo.
We are both so happy with the results. We wouldn’t trust anyone else with out treatments and would highly recommend Dallas for any treatment anyone is considering. We will most definitely be returning.

Love my new skincare routine

I would 100% recommend Dr Dallas, his manner and procedure/product knowledge is magnificent, I felt reassured the first time I met him enough to go back and let him do what I wanted to have done, and more! Absolutely love my new skincare routine which he also advised me on. Words cannot depict how happy I am since Dr Dallas carried out my treatments.

I will never trust anyone else with my face

Dr D is a true king! The ultimate professional and a true gentleman. I moved abroad last year but still fly home just to see Dr Dallas and will never trust anyone else with my face. I’m not sure which I look forward to the most - my post treatment glow up or his wonderful chats! Offering Hydrafacials in the clinics now is also a great extra benefit.

With the BBL laser treatment, comfort is our priority! Our cooling crystal and Sapphire Sofar tip allow us to adjust the cooling levels, ensuring a smooth experience. You might feel a small flash of heat or a tiny snap, particularly in sensitive areas, but it’s fleeting. Post-treatment, your skin may feel a little warm and flushed – but rest assured, it’s perfectly normal and not uncomfortable. In terms of pain, the BBL laser treatment is easy going. You’re in good hands!

No need to worry about using numbing cream before your bbl laser treatment. In fact, it’s better not to use it! Numbing cream can constrict your blood vessels, which can actually diminish the redness – the very thing we’re targeting with this treatment. So while it’s not necessary, it could also potentially interfere with the effectiveness of your treatment. We want the best results for you, so we recommend skipping the numbing cream for this one.

represents an advancement on the traditional IPL therapy. This therapy has been extensively researched, proven, and stands the test of time. The BBL improves upon the range of treatments that can be provided, the specific targets that can be addressed, and enhances the speed of treatment execution. Thus, it is marked by its safety, efficacy, and extensive clinical validation.

BroadBand Light (BBL) therapy is beneficial for skin types ranging from one to five. Unfortunately, type six skin cannot undergo this treatment as it may adversely affect their overall skin health.

Indeed, BBL comes equipped with a unique setting dedicated to skin tightening. This feature can be integrated into any treatment. With the application of high frequencies, it is capable of penetrating deeper into the tissues, thereby tightening the skin’s base. Thus, skin tightening is not just a possibility, but a reality with BBL treatments.

BBL treatments can be effectively combined with many other interventions, provided you are in a suitable condition, such as staying out of the sun and not taking any contraindicating medications. Some compatible treatments include injections, fillers, wrinkle toxins, and even HydraFacials. It’s common to undergo BBL treatments first before any systemic injectable treatments or during a HydraFacial session.

SPF is crucial for everyday skincare, becomes even more critical in the 10 to 14 days following a BBL treatment. We strongly recommend a mineral-based SPF. This SPF will shield your skin from the four major culprits of skin damage.

Post-treatment, your skin will be more sensitive, making the use of SPF indispensable in reducing the risk of hyper or hypo pigmentation. Using SPF religiously, especially during this sensitive period after a BBL treatment, will help slow skin ageing, decrease pigmentation, and maintain the overall health of your skin.
