Rosacea is a condition that can leave people who have it disappointed and frustrated because of the effect it has on their appearance. The condition happens because the small veins in the face and around the nose can become enlarged, making the skin look red at times. While the causes of the condition are unknown, it is treatable. BBL therapy, or broadband light, is an effective method of treating the condition. If you have rosacea, check with our specialist about the availability of BBL treatment.
BBL therapy is done by focusing concentrated pulses of light onto the skin directly above the area to be treated. Wavelengths are selected that will allow the light to pass through the outer layer of the skin. The light will then be absorbed by the vessels that are causing the problem. The heat that is produced promotes healing of the skin from the inside out.
BBL therapy is a safe and comfortable procedure that is suitable for most patients in generally good health. If you are unsure if you are a good candidate, we can help you make an informed decision during your consultation with us.
BBL therapy does not require a major disruption in your daily activities in order to receive good results. Each session typically lasts under an hour. The exact time will depend on the area being treated. Likewise, the number of treatments needed to produce the desired results will vary by individual. As a general rule, you should plan on a series of treatments that are spaced out a set amount of time apart.
Rosacea is a condition that can show up somewhat intermittently. People may get along fairly well for a while before it flares up again. Things that seem to trigger outbreaks include alcohol, coffee, exercise and a number of other factors. The thought that it can become visible at some of the most inopportune times is itself enough to increase the stress levels for those with the condition, leading many to seek effective treatment options.
You might also be interested in taking a closer look at BBL therapy if you have facial spider veins, which can also form as a result of enlarged and broken vessels. While they seldom produce symptoms, they can impact the appearance enough that the self-esteem can suffer.
