What are the risks of BBL Laser?

Understanding the Risks of BBL Hero: Prioritising Safety and Results at EdenMed Clinic.

BroadBand Light (BBL) Hero, an advanced form of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, has gained recognition for its remarkable cosmetic benefits. However, as with any medical procedure, it's crucial to be aware of the potential risks and benefits associated with BBL Hero. In this post, we will explore the risks of BBL Hero, highlighting its safety when compared to traditional IPL treatments and emphasising EdenMed Clinic's unwavering commitment to safety and results. Risks of BBL Hero: Pigment Changes: One potential risk associated with BBL Hero is changes in skin pigmentation. While the treatment is designed to target pigmentation issues, improper application or incorrect settings could lead to undesirable changes in skin color. This risk is why it is crucial to seek a reputable and experienced clinic like EdenMed. Annie and I were the first clinic in the UK to acquire the Sciton mJoule. We have years of experience, having treated hundreds of satisfied clients. Our combined experience, commitment to safety and ongoing learning is why we have gained international recognition within the Sciton world. Scarring: In rare cases, BBL Hero treatment may result in scarring, particularly when performed by inexperienced or untrained practitioners. However, the risk of scarring is considerably lower when compared to older IPL technologies. Hyperpigmentation or Hypopigmentation: BBL Hero does cause temporary hyperpigmentation (darkening), which is to be expected and is desirable. Hypopigmentation (lightening) of the skin may occur. In rare circumstances this may be permanent. For this reason, we cannot use BBL on black skinned (Fitzpatrick 6) individuals. If you have brown skin, BBL can be used with caution. These issues emphasise the importance of expert care and personalised treatment plans. Sensitivity and Redness: Following a BBL Hero session, some patients may experience mild skin sensitivity and redness. These side effects are typically short-lived and subside within a few hours to couple of days.

Burns: With any light therapy (Laser, BBL, IPL), there is a risk of burning the skin. Generally, the risk of a superficial burn is around 1 in 1,000 at EdenMed Clinic. If this does occur, it will generally be transient and fully resolve in a few days. Pigment changes that result may take a few weeks to resolve, but as you can see from the figures, the individual risk of this is very small, though not zero.

Eye Protection: Proper eye protection during the procedure is essential to prevent potential eye damage. Unprotected eyes are at risk of injury from the intense light. At EdenMed Clinic, we take comprehensive safety measures to protect both our patients and practitioners during the procedure. Risk to eye function is dependent on a number of factors and not solely from the light itself. BBL Hero vs. IPL: A Safer Alternative: Compared to traditional IPL treatments, BBL Hero is considered a safer alternative for various reasons: Customisable Settings: BBL Hero offers a higher degree of customisation, allowing practitioners to tailor treatment to individual needs. This minimises the risk of overexposure or complications. Precision: BBL Hero's advanced technology delivers precise energy levels to targeted areas, reducing the likelihood of collateral damage to surrounding tissues. Consistency: BBL Hero's consistent energy output and uniform cooling system ensure a safer and more controlled treatment, minimising the risk of adverse effects.
