BBL HEROin Oakland, California

The Fastest & Most Effective Light-Based Treatment For Younger-Looking Skin in Oakland

Turning back time on dull, aging skin has never been easier with Sciton BBL HERO. This precisely engineered non-ablative laser reverses dullness and discoloration, unveiling a youthful, luminous complexion on the entire body and face in minutes.

BBL HERO Laser Treatment at Refine Anti-Aging

At Refine Anti-Aging Medicine and Aesthetics, we are thrilled to offer the latest Sciton BBL HERO technology and strive to deliver the best BBL HERO Oakland has to offer. BBL HERO is one of the quickest and most clinically effective ways to achieve a flawless, younger-looking complexion that radiates with beauty.

What is the BBL HERO?

BBL HERO is the world's most powerful broadband laser for skin rejuvenation. Unlike standard IPL photo rejuvenation, Sciton BBL HERO (High Energy Rapid Output) is 4x faster, 3x as powerful, and has 2x the cooling comfort as older technology, all without damaging the skin surface since it is non-ablative.

BBL, which stands for BroadBand Light, applies pulsed light wavelengths to target pigmentation concerns such as sun damage, freckles, acne scars, age spots, redness, and vascular lesions anywhere on the face and body. Your body will remove the pigmented cells over the next few days, ultimately replacing the damaged cells with newer skin cells for healthy skin that glows!

Forever Young BBL

Sciton's Forever Young treatment is a multi-step and multi-pass protocol to correct and maintain your skin's youthful appearance by addressing common signs of aging such as fine lines, dull, uneven texture and tone, vascular conditions, and pigmented lesions, resulting in smoother, radiant-looking skin that defies aging.

Forever Clear BBL

Take control of acne with Forever Clear BBL. This protocol utilizes blue and yellow wavelengths and infrared light energy to zero in on acne, paving the way for clearer skin on the face, chest, shoulders, and back. For optimal results, it is recommended that patients undergo at least four treatments, but results can be seen after just one treatment.


Glowing skin from head to toe is possible with BBL HERO Body, a lightning-fast, non-invasive treatment addressing tonality concerns such as brown spots, sun damage, and other discolorations in three to five minutes per treatment zone.

BBL HERO Benefits

Sciton BBL HERO emits visible and infrared light to treat skin concerns at the source without damaging the epidermis, eliminating downtime and discomfort. It treats larger body areas four times faster than conventional photo-facial devices, meaning less time spent in your doctor's office and more time enjoying your age-defying results. BBL HERO is fully customized to your exact skin concerns, ensuring a beautifully personalized outcome every single time. It is also less painful than other IPL treatments since it features world-class cooling technology.

Aesthetic Concerns Addressed With Oakland BBL HERO

  • Sun Damage and Photo-aging
  • Uneven Skin Tone and Rough Texture
  • Hyperpigmentation like Age Spots, Dark Spots, and Freckles
  • Diffuse Facial Redness and Rosacea
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Active Acne and Acne Scarring
  • Spider Veins and Broken Capillaries
  • Excess Hair


Intense pulsed light (IPL) has been a mainstay of dermatology for years. That said, older devices cannot compete with the efficacy and speed of Sciton's broadband light. Sciton BBL laser represents the most advanced, powerful light-based technology, featuring a broader spectrum of wavelengths to deliver even better results in less time and fewer sessions. Its state-of-the-art thermoelectric technology keeps the skin cool for the duration of treatment for a virtually pain-free experience and less downtime. Finally, Sciton BBL targets more concerns than conventional IPL, including broken capillaries and large pores. Dr. Reshma Vasanwala will consult with our Oakland BBL HERO patients to make a personalized clinical recommendation.

BBL HERO Candidates

Nearly anyone with signs of aging, such as hyperpigmentation, redness, or dark spots, may be prime candidates for an Oakland BBL HERO treatment, except those who are pregnant, nursing, or having broken skin at the treatment area. This highly effective treatment also works well for clearing active acne, post-acne marks, rosacea, rough or dry skin, and excess hair on the face and body. BBL HERO is only for Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-V.

BBL HERO + MOXI—A Perfect Combination

BBL HERO and Sciton MOXI team up to deliver skin twice as bright and smooth. While BBL HERO quickly eradicates sun damage and dark spots, the fractional energy of MOXI amplifies the effects and promotes a smoother skin texture. Dubbed the Kim K. Laser Facial, this synergistic combo is a favorite among Hollywood's A-listers.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

BBL HERO boasts minimal downtime, allowing you to resume most activities and wear makeup immediately. Mild redness and swelling typically fade in a day or two. Limit sun exposure and avoid aggressive skincare products, as your skin may be more sensitive initially. Most patients see improvement in skin quality and texture within two weeks. Each treatment results in noticeably brighter, even-toned skin, with each session building on the last. You can repeat the treatments every four months for maintenance.
