Your Skin Needs a HERO

After this oddest year ever, you could say we all need a hero of some sort. For your skin, we’ve taken that advice to heart at Saltz Plastic Surgery/Spa Vitoria. We’ve added the Sciton Broadband Light HERO™ platform for our patients in our Salt Lake City location.

HERO offers a variety of treatments in one system, utilizing different filters to adjust the light energy delivered to the particular need. We’re so excited about our new BBL HERO™ that we’re going to devote both of our blogs for the New Year to the HERO.

What is Sciton’s BBL HERE?

BBL HERO™ is right out of acronym land. It stands for BroadBand Light, and HERO stands for High Energy Rapid Output™. 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.

BroadBand Light in the HERO system is the world’s most powerful Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) device on the market. It gives us great latitude at Saltz for treating skin conditions associated with aging, active lifestyles, and sun damage. BBL has the ability to provide dermal renewal, permanent hair reduction, and the treatment of pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, and acne.

Specific advantages of our BBL HERO platform

Dr. Saltz decided to add the Sciton BBL HERO™ to his practice because of the versatility it adds for various treatments our Park City and Salt Lake patients seek. Here are some of its advantages:

  • BBL HERO delivers 4 times the speed, 3 times the peak power, and 2 times the cooling, creating greater capacity to treat more patients more quickly.
  • BBL HERO is the world’s most powerful IPL device.
  • BBL HERO enables us to treat multiple skin conditions with various wavelengths simply through different Smart Filters, making treatments streamlined and easy for our patients.

Keeps you comfortable

Plus, it delivers these treatments with the ultimate comfort. 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.

Those are the basics of our new BBL HERO™ at Saltz/Spa Victoria. In January’s second blog we’ll get into all the treatments we can perform with our new HERO. Until then, why not give us a call and experience the broadband light difference yourself?
