BBL Hero: Pre And Post Treatment Instructions


BBL Hero by Sciton is a cutting-edge broadband light therapy used for various skin rejuvenation and corrective procedures. Here are pre and post-care instructions to help ensure the best results and minimize any potential side effects.


Pre-Care Instructions for BBL Hero


Consultation: Schedule a consultation with a qualified BBL Hero provider at Seaport Medspa to discuss your specific concerns and treatment goals. Ensure you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.


Avoid Sun Exposure: Stay out of direct sunlight for at least 4-6 weeks prior to the treatment. If sun exposure is unavoidable, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30.


Discontinue Self-Tanning Products: Stop using self-tanning products, including sprays and lotions, at least 2 weeks before your BBL Hero treatment.


Skin Care Products: Discontinue the use of retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), and other exfoliating agents for at least one week before the procedure.


Medications and Supplements: Inform your provider about any medications or supplements you're taking, as some may need to be temporarily discontinued if they increase the risk of complications.


Shave Treatment Area: If your treatment area has hair, shave the area one to two days before your appointment. Avoid waxing or using depilatory creams.


Makeup and Lotions: Arrive at your appointment with clean, makeup-free skin, and avoid applying any lotions, creams, or other products to the treatment area on the day of the procedure.


Post-Care Instructions for BBL Hero


Sun Protection: Protect your skin from direct sunlight for at least 4-6 weeks after treatment. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to any exposed areas.


Heat: Avoid hot showers, hot tubs, saunas, and activities that cause heat and flushing for 48 hours post treatment.


Alcohol: Avoid alcohol for 48 hours post treatment.


Skin Care Products: Use gentle, hydrating skin care products and avoid harsh chemicals, exfoliants, or abrasive scrubs for a few days following the procedure.


Makeup: You can resume wearing makeup the day after treatment unless otherwise instructed by your provider.


Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and aid in the healing process.


Redness and Swelling: Some redness and mild swelling are normal and usually subside within a few hours to a few days. You can apply a cool compress to the area to alleviate discomfort.


Avoid Picking or Scratching: Do not pick, scratch, or otherwise manipulate the treated area. This can lead to complications and potential scarring.


Follow-Up Appointments: Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments with your provider to assess your progress and address any concerns. Generally treatments are performed in a series of 3-5 every 4-weeks before moving to a maintenance plan.


Exercise: You can typically resume light exercise and normal activities the day after the procedure, but avoid strenuous activities for a few days.


Patience: Results from BBL Hero treatments may take a few weeks to become fully apparent. Facial pigment can take 7-10 days to fully flake off and heal, treatments done on body tissue may take 7-14 days. Be patient and follow your provider's instructions for optimal outcomes.


It's essential to adhere to these pre and post-care instructions for BBL Hero by Sciton to ensure a safe and effective treatment with minimal side effects. Always consult with your provider at Seaport Medspa for personalized guidance based on your specific treatment plan and needs.
