What is BroadBand Light Therapy?
Broadband light (BBL) process utilizes energy-releasing technology to enhance the aesthetics of your skin and makes it appear younger and smoother.

Our practice, Med Spa At Seena One at Burleson, TX, offers BBL at the recommendation of Dr. Mukhtar Anees and his team as an innovative treatment proven to help restore our patients' confidence in their skin.

"Everyone was very nice and the technician doing my treatment made sure I knew exactly what I would be feeling during treatment as far as pain. Which the pain for laser hair removal wasn't much at all. The office was really clean also. Wish I would've done it sooner."- S.B. / Google / Mar 18, 2017
"This is my go to for facials when my skin needs a refresher. All the ladies here are the most helpful, very informative and skilled in performing treatments. I’ve had 2 BBLs and and Halo which made all the difference in my skin tone, age spots and fine lines. Dr. Anees has the softest touch when applying facial injections. He and he’s staff made me feel so comfortable and cared for my needs for my first time trying Botox."- N.M. / Google / May 13, 2023
"I had a BBL photofacial done to get rid of the millions of freckles and melasma that I have, it actually turned out BETTER than I thought it would with just 1 session. I have had an IPL photofacial done previously at a different local place and had no results whatsoever, it was so disappointing. The lady at Seena One heard my concerns and assured me that she'd get me taken care of. She sure didn't disappoint! She was so knowledgeable, and she took her time to make sure that I would get the best results. I really appreciated that she did a test spot first and waited 5 minutes to see how my skin/freckles would react, so that she could see how my skin would tolerate it and also so that she knew it was strong enough to get results. I couldn't be happier with my results and I highly recommend Seena One. I won't go anywhere else. My entire experience there was 10/10!"- R.C. / Facebook / Jul 10, 2023
Who is a Candidate for BBL Therapy?
A great candidate for BBL is any patient suffering from hyperpigmentation or textured skin. These conditions may be caused by acne, sun damage, damaged capillaries, or rosacea. BBL can also help to make your skin appear younger by stimulating the production of collagen. By varying the type of modality and filter used for the treatment, BBL can be used as both a treatment and/or daily maintenance for an array of skin conditions. Before undergoing treatment, our team will discuss how BBL technology could help you reach your cosmetic goals.
How Does BBL Work?
After creating a suitable treatment plan, the settings of the BBL system will be adjusted to fit the needs of your skin. Before starting the procedure, your eyes will be protected from the laser with a cover. We will then lightly pass the laser over your skin while concentrating on the problem locations. The length of time needed for your treatment will vary depending upon the skin condition and if any other services were completed during the BBL session. BBL procedures can typically be completed in about one hour or less.
What can I Expect after BBL?
Following the therapy, a soothing lotion may be smoothed onto your skin. Our aesthetic team may also offer post-treatment care directions and might advise limited exposure to the sun. Otherwise, patients are typically able to resume their regular daily routine. Results from BBL may be seen within 2 – 6 weeks after the initial treatment, but optimal results will typically be seen after repeat BBL sessions. We will suggest the recommended amount of treatments to receive your desired outcome.
How much does BBL cost?
Dr. Anees and his team will be able to estimate your costs in your initial consultation when your BBL plan has been developed. BBL costs will be based on what area(s) you are having treated, the size of the treatment area(s), and how many sessions will be needed. After our team assesses your skin's health and understands your needs, He will work with you to develop your custom treatment plan. Med Spa At Seena One frequently offers specials on treatments like BBL — so be sure to ask about our current deals during your appointment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of BBL sessions needed will be estimated during your consultation after the condition of your skin is assessed. On average, patients reach their skin goals after three sessions. Although, if you have severe sun damage, discoloration, or pigmentation, you might need more treatments. During your consultation, we will listen to your goals and develop your BBL plan. Your BBL treatments will be scheduled about one month apart to allow your skin to heal.
What areas can be treated with BBL?
All areas of skin may be treated with BBL, but some of the most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, chest, hands, shoulders, and back. These are the areas that tend to have the most damage because they're regularly exposed to the sun. The face, neck, and hands are also the first places affected by lifestyle and natural aging, so treating these areas may help improve your whole appearance. In your initial consultation, tell our team about all your areas of concern so he can make a comprehensive BBL plan.
How is BBL different from other lasers?
The innovative BroadBand Light by Sciton is an advanced intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment. The dual lamps and wide range of energy wavelengths allow our team to adjust your BBL treatment for your skin goals. Utilizing different wavelengths, BBL can improve both brown and red lesions, plus light and dark spots, without harming the surrounding skin and tissue. Effective and safe, BBL can give you a better complexion in fewer sessions compared to 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 can be used on all skin types and tones. To get your best results, it is recommended that you avoid unprotected ultraviolet (UV) light exposure (both natural sunlight and tanning beds) for at least 10 – 14 days before your appointment. After tanning, your skin has higher levels of melanin (pigment), which may absorb the energy and impact your outcome. Your skin will be especially sensitive to UV exposure, so you need to not use tanning beds and limit sun exposure throughout your treatment and for a minimum of 10 – 14 days following your last appointment.
