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.

"My entire life I have struggled with insecurities about my skin. I have dry skin with large pores and I have a very pale complexion. I am one week post procedure for the pixel laser and I honestly cannot believe the results. They told me it would take 3 to 6 weeks to see the optimal results and I cannot imagine my skin actually looking better than it already does. The office is so gorgeous and comfortable and spotless, not to mention every single staff member their treats you like your family and explain everything to you every step of the way. I would urge anyone out there to invest money in themselves if you struggle with the same issues that I have. And if you decide to make the investment I highly recommend modern medical spa. I’ve been to numerous different spas and had numerous different treatments and yet this is the best I have found."- A.H. / Google / Apr 25, 2021
"Modern Medical Spa is a professional, plastic surgeon affiliated facility. My husband is a retired physician. Needless to say, I am very careful when selecting a medical spa. Please read the qualifications of the medical staff. Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants require medical education very similar to that of physicians. These are serious credentials. I received fillers. This is not my first experience with fillers, but never before has so much time been spent making sure that I received the best possible result.. Rachel Dreilling, NP is meticulous. She has a lovely personality, made me totally comfortable, and has an artistic 'eye.'

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.
The Age-defying Effects of Sciton BBL and Forever Clear BBL
BroadBand Light Therapy with the Sciton mJOULE is an exciting solution to enhance the look and feel of your skin.
