What is BroadBand Light Therapy?
BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL™) uses advanced regenerative technology to enhance skin health and aesthetics to reveal a more youthful, vibrant complexion. At Modern Medical Spa, our highly trained and certified technicians use the cutting-edge Sciton® mJOULE™ laser for this facial treatment, which produces therapeutic intense pulsed light (IPL) energy that mildly heats the skin and ignites collagen production. Individuals with a variety of skin conditions may benefit from BBL photofacial therapy, as it can minimize the appearance of aging skin, rosacea, broken blood vessels, sun damage, unwanted freckles, and other skin concerns. Our Dallas, TX team also offers Forever Clear® BBL for patients who suffer from acne and have not found results from other treatment options. BBL therapy can also help create a more even and smooth surface texture to generate a fresh, luminous complexion. Modern Medical Spa is thrilled to offer BBL to Dallas, TX men and women as a single treatment or in combination with other services to help revitalize skin health and appearance.
"I went To Modern Medical Spa to get my lips done by Clara. She was absolutely amazing, she made me feel comfortable and was very thorough when explaining how the process works and the after care that was needed. The Spa is sparkling clean and very welcoming. All of the employees I spoke with, whether over the phone or in the spa, were incredibly professional and attentive. I will most definitely be going back to Modern Medical for all of my future needs!!!"- A.L. / Google / Feb 12, 2021
"I love the Modern Medical Spa! Jenna has made such a huge difference in my skin with her recommendations and expertise in helping me accomplish my goals. Clara is the bomb with Botox! And Romany is amazing as well with scheduling and helping with plans and pricing. I always feel so welcomed at the Medical Spa and truly feel they have helped me look younger but while still maintaining a natural look."- J.H. / Facebook / Jan 29, 2021
"If you are looking to improve your skin, the Modern Medical Spa is the place to go. Barbi has helped diminish my fine and not so fine lines. Jenna has not only helped with fine lines, but my skin looks so healthy and yes...a little younger! But one of the main reasons I go to Modern Medical Spa is for their sound, clinical advice and safety approach with their patients. P.S. Also, it is a beautiful, comfortable spa!"- K.G. / Google / Dec 28, 2020

Am I a Candidate for BBL Therapy?
BBL photofacial treatments may be ideal for adults who wish to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation, such as sun spots or freckles, or unevenly textured skin caused by acne, sun damage, rosacea, or damaged capillaries, among other conditions. BBL can also help to make the complexion appear younger and improve its tone and clarity by igniting the regeneration of collagen in the top layers of skin. All areas of skin can be improved with BBL; however, some of the most commonly treated regions are the face, neck, hands, chest, shoulders, and upper back. Patients who have persistent acne may also be ideal candidates for Forever Clear BBL treatments in which the advanced light therapy can eliminate acne-causing bacteria. Before undergoing treatment, one of our skilled medical aestheticians will help you explore your treatment options and understand how BBL technology might help you reach your aesthetic goals.
What to Expect With a Photofacial
Each BBL and Forever Clear BBL photorejuvenation session is performed in one of our private, luxurious treatment rooms and generally only takes about an hour to complete. Most patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure and typically do not require any downtime. While many other laser alternatives may take several weeks to reach the full results, the Sciton mJOULE can do so in just a quarter of that time.
At the end of your visit, you will be given post-treatment care instructions to help optimize your skin results, such as reducing sun exposure following your photofacial treatment. Outcomes from BBL therapy may be seen within 2 – 6 weeks of the initial treatment while best results can generally be observed after repeat photofacial therapy. Our experienced aesthetic team can help you curate an ideal cosmetic plan with the appropriate amount of BBL therapy sessions to help achieve your desired outcome.
Frequently Asked Questions About BBL
How much does BBL cost?
Our skilled team at Modern Medical Spa will be able to talk about your costs during your consultation as soon as your BBL plan is developed. BBL costs will vary, depending on what area(s) you are having treated, the treatment area(s) size, and how many treatments you will need. After the condition of your skin is evaluated, we will listen to your goals and work with you to create your treatment plan. Modern Medical Spa also frequently runs specials on treatments, like BBL, so watch our website or ask about current deals when you make your appointment.
How many treatments will I need?
How many BBL treatments you need will be discussed in your initial consultation as soon as your skin's condition is evaluated. Generally, patients achieve their skin goals after three sessions. However, if you have severe sun damage, pigmentation, or discoloration, you may require more sessions. During your initial consultation, our aesthetic team will listen to your goals and develop your custom plan. Your treatments will be scheduled about one month apart to allow your skin to heal.
What areas can be treated with BBL and Forever Clear BBL?
Almost all areas of skin may be treated with BBL, but some of the most popular areas are the face, chest, hands, neck, shoulders, and upper back. These areas typically have the most damage because they're regularly exposed to the sun. The face and hands are also most often affected by lifestyle and natural aging so treating these areas can help improve your whole appearance. Additionally, Forever Clear BBL may be performed anywhere you suffer from acne, including the face, chest, and back. In your initial consultation, we will talk about all your concerns so an ideal BBL treatment plan can be created.
How is BBL different from other lasers?
Made by Sciton, the innovative BroadBand Light is a high-powered IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment. The dual lamps and wide range of energy wavelengths allow our skilled, Dallas, TX team to personalize your treatment to meet your skin concerns. Utilizing varying wavelengths, BBL can treat red and brown lesions, as well as dark and light spots, without harming the surrounding skin and tissue. Effective and safe, BBL can give you a better complexion in less time compared to many other skin treatments.
Is BBL safe for all skin tones?
Since the energy wavelengths in a BBL treatment can be adjusted for your unique needs, BBL is safe for all skin types and tones. To get your best results, our team suggests you avoid unprotected ultraviolet (UV) light exposure (both tanning beds and natural sunlight ) for at least 10 – 14 days before your appointment. Tanned skin has higher levels of melanin (pigment), which can absorb the energy and impact your results. Your skin will be extra sensitive to UV exposure so you should continue to limit your sun exposure and not use tanning beds throughout your treatment and for a minimum of 10 – 14 days after your last treatment.
