More Details

Benefits to BBL Hero?

BBL Hero’s new technology allows for full body treatment, which traditional BBL treatments are not optimized for. You can quickly have your face, or larger regions like your back, arms, and legs treated in 2 to 5 minutes! Normal BBL Treatments of isolated regions can take half an hour or longer. You could receive full-body treatments with the BBL Hero in as little as 12 to 15 minutes.


The effects of BBL treatments to improve tone, texture, and skin reflectivity and glow will gradually wane over time. While your skin’s appearance will be better for many months, the aging process continues. Maintenance treatments are optimal for long term results.

As with any medical treatment, ensure you are getting treated with a very experienced medical provider. Technique and proper patient selection defines safety. At TLJ Aesthetics MD, no medical complications have ever occurred.

The cosmetic benefit can be seen as early as 1 week, peaking at several weeks. Additional improvements over time and with repeat and maintenance treatments are typical.

Maintenance treatments are ideal for BBL after an initial treatment course—every 3-4 months for most patients.

The most common side effects of BBL include temporary, very minor swelling and a snapping sensation at the time of treatment. At TLJ Aesthetics MD, we do everything possible to help prevent and avoid any unpleasant experiences and ensure your treatment is very comfortable.

You can return to most usual activities immediately after BBL treatment with no downtime.

There are a variety of techniques available to improve tone, texture, lines, wrinkles and laxity of the skin. Different treatments are commonly used together for additive benefits. Many factors are taken into consideration when recommendations are made for you at TLJ. Together we will determine the right fit for you.
