The Benefits of Combining BBL HERO and MOXI

What is BBL HERO?

BBL HERO is a product by Sciton, a medical device company that specializes in laser and light-based systems for aesthetic procedures. The BBL HERO device is a high-intensity BroadBand Light (BBL) handset designed for skin rejuvenation, treatment of sun damage, and correction of various skin imperfections such as age spots, fine lines, and acne. 

BBL HERO is a non-invasive, fast, and effective solution for achieving smoother, clearer, and more radiant skin. The device utilizes cutting-edge pulsed light technology to deliver intense bursts of light energy to the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin renewal. It can be used on all areas of the body quickly and comfortably.

How Does BBL HERO Work?

BBL HERO uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat various skin concerns such as aging, acne, and hyperpigmentation. The name stands for BroadBand Light (BBL) and High Energy Rapid Output (HERO).

The treatment works by emitting light energy that penetrates deep into the skin, targeting and destroying unwanted cells or pigments, while at the same time cooling the skin for ultimate comfort. The BBL HERO technology is designed to offer faster and more efficient results compared to traditional IPL treatments.

What is MOXI?

MOXI is another Sciton product that uses the power of light to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and age spots. It is a multi-wavelength laser system that can effectively treat a wide range of skin concerns The laser system is designed to target different layers of skin to provide optimal results with minimal downtime.

MOXI is unique in that it uses a micro-focused delivery system to deliver the light energy in a specific pattern, which ensures that the treatment is highly effective yet minimizes any risk of injury to surrounding tissue. This allows the MOXI to target specific areas of skin concern, such as age spots or acne scars, without affecting the surrounding skin.

How Does MOXI Work?

The technology behind MOXI is called Micro Optical Zone Intervention (MOZI), which uses a specific pattern of intense pulsed light (IPL) to precisely target areas of skin concern. The small handpiece emits pulses of light energy that penetrate the skin. The energy is absorbed by the targeted cells, causing them to break down and stimulate new cell growth. The result is a smoother, more even complexion, with improved skin texture and tone.
