What is BroadBand Light Therapy?
Broadband light (BBL) treatment uses regenerating technology to enhance the aesthetics of the skin and also makes it appear younger and smoother. This works by employing therapeutic-grade light energy that gently heats the top layer of skin and ignites collagen production. Patients with a variety of skin conditions can benefit from BBL since it functions to address sun damage, unwanted freckles, rosacea, and broken blood vessels. It can also help create a more smooth and even skin texture to generate fresh, glowing skin. BBL could be added to other cosmetic treatments to fulfill your wishes and goals. Our practice, Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX, offers BBL with Sciton® technology at the recommendation of Dr. Kevin Hanz as an advanced treatment proven to help rejuvenate our patients' skin.

Sciton BroadBand Light Therapy Reviews
"I recently started Sciton Halo and Sciton BBL treatments with Amy Sanders. Amy took the time to explain each of the treatments and what to expect before, during and after treatments. Amy’s post care attention went above and beyond making herself available by phone for any and all questions and concerns. On my follow-up appointment, I was so encouraged when I realized the entire office staff was almost as excited for my results as I was. After just one treatment of both, I have already seen such a positive improvement to my face and chest areas. I live in the San Antonio area and feel my trips up to Dr. Hanz’s office for my aesthetic procedures are 100% worth it. Dr. Hanz and his staff are wonderful and I highly recommend!"- TS / Office Visit / Apr 03, 2022
Who is a Candidate for BBL?
A great candidate for BBL is anyone dealing with hyperpigmentation or unevenly textured skin. These conditions can be caused by sun damage, damaged capillaries, rosacea, or acne. BBL also helps to make the skin seem more youthful by igniting the production of collagen. Depending on the type of modality and filter used, BBL could be used as both a treatment and/or maintenance regimen for a wide array of skin issues. Before receiving treatment, Dr. Hanz will help you understand how BBL technology may help achieve your cosmetic goals.
How Does BBL Work?
After customizing a suitable treatment plan, the settings of the BBL device will be adjusted to fit your unique needs. Before starting the procedure, your eyes will be protected from the laser with a cover. Dr. Hanz will then softly pass the laser over your skin while focusing on the treatment areas. The length of time needed for your therapy will change depending upon the issue being treated and if any other services were included in the BBL procedure. BBL procedures can ordinarily be finished in about an hour or less.
What can I Expect after BBL?
After the therapy, a soothing lotion will be smoothed onto your skin. Dr. Hanz may also supply post-treatment care instructions and may advise reducing your sun exposure. Otherwise, patients are usually able to return to their regular daily routine. Outcomes from BBL may be noticed in 2 – 6 weeks following the initial therapy, but best results will generally be observed after multiple BBL sessions. Dr. Hanz will suggest the recommended amount of procedures to receive your desired outcome.
How much does BBL cost?
Dr. Hanz will be able to discuss your costs during your initial consultation as soon as your BBL plan is developed. BBL costs will vary depending on where you want to get the treatment, the treatment area(s) size, and the number of appointments you need. Once Dr. Hanz evaluates the health of your skin and understands your goals, he will help you decide on your BBL plan. Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery frequently runs specials on skin treatments such as BBL — so watch our website or ask about current deals during your appointment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of BBL sessions needed will be discussed in your initial consultation after Dr. Hanz assesses your skin. Generally, patients achieve their goals after three sessions. Although, if you have serious discoloration, pigmentation, or sun damage, you might require more treatments. In your initial consultation, Dr. Hanz will consider your goals and create your BBL treatment plan. Your BBL appointments will be spaced about 3 – 4 weeks apart to allow your skin to recover.
What areas can be treated with BBL?
Most areas of skin can be treated with BBL, although the most popular are the face, neck, chest, hands, shoulders, and upper back. These are the areas that typically have the most damage since they're frequently exposed to the sun. The face and hands are also most often affected by natural aging and lifestyle, so a BBL treatment in these areas may help improve your whole appearance. In your consultation with Dr. Hanz, tell Him about all concerns so he can make your ideal treatment plan.
