Featured Image

Broadband light™ therapy (BBL) takes skin care to the next level when topical solutions and oils don’t work. Dr. David Genecov is a board-certified plastic surgeon who serves as the medical director for Modern Medical Spa. Patients residing in and around Dallas, TX have access to innovative photofacial technology applied by Dr. Genecov’s skillful hands. With BBL treatment, patients can attain a smooth, glowing complexion virtually free of signs of aging and other imperfections.

What is broadband light therapy (BBL)?

At Modern Medical Spa, Dr. Genecov and his trained technicians utilize Sciton? mJOULE™ laser technology to administer BBL treatment to the skin. Using intense pulsed light (IPL) energy, the laser gently heats the tissue to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in the skin responsible for new cell development. This allows new tissue to form, creating a smooth and vibrant texture.

What areas of the body are commonly treated with BBL?

Almost any part of the body can be treated with BBL. The most common areas, due to frequent sun exposure damage, include the:

  • Shoulders

  • Arms

  • Neck

  • Back

  • Face

  • Chest

  • Hands

Dr. Genecov or a member of our team works with each patient to develop customized BBL treatment plans based on their personal goals and desired improvements for their skin. Certain individuals may not qualify for BBL treatments if they have a history of specific skin conditions or other medical disorders.

What’s the difference between BBL and Forever Clear BBL?

At Modern Medical Spa, our team offers two types of BBL treatments: BBL and Forever Clear BBL. BBL is typically used to combat the mild signs of aging and to minimize sun spots or hyperpigmentation. Forever Clear BBL is reserved for patients living with persistent acne, particularly on the face, chest, or back.

Five signs Forever Clear BBL treatment is right for you

If you are trying to decide if Forever Clear BBL is right for you, here are five signs that may indicate you are ready to take the next step:

  • Topical solutions or lotions are not or are no longer effective for your acne

  • Diet or exercise changes don’t seem to have an effect

  • Healthy skin hygiene practices aren’t minimizing acne

  • You’ve tried other dermatological treatments with no results

  • Your acne is impeding on your confidence and desire to show off your skin

Dr. Genecov will thoroughly assess your acne condition and your medical history to help you determine if Forever Clear BBL is the right treatment path for you.

What can I do to prepare my skin for BBL treatment?

Our team asks every patient to carry out recommendations to prepare the skin for BBL treatment. This may include:

  • Avoiding tanning salons or excessive sun exposure

  • Temporarily ceasing specific medications

  • Use protective sunblock for 10 – 14 days prior to your treatment

What is a BBL treatment like?

BBL and Forever Clear BBL can be completed at Modern Medical Spa in one of our private treatment rooms. Most visits only take one hour to complete, but the timing can vary depending on the number and size of targeted treatment areas. One of our team members applies Sciton mJOULE technology to mildly heat the skin. Once your treatment session is complete, you can return home and resume normal daily activities.

Is there any downtime after BBL?

BBL treatments at Modern Medical Spa require little to no downtime. However, each patient is sent home with aftercare instructions to properly tend to their skin and optimize healing. Patients should avoid scratching or picking at the treatment sites, continue to wear protective sunblock, and avoid excessive sunlight for the first few weeks.

How long will it take to notice results?

Patients typically notice results within 2 – 6 weeks after their initial treatment. Outcomes depend on the number of treatments received, the size of each treatment area, and the patient’s adherence to recovery instructions. In some cases, Dr. Genecov may suggest more than one BBL treatment session to maximize results.
