Rosacea is a common skin disease that appears as redness, flushing and visible blood vessels usually on the face but may appear on the ears, back and chest. There is no medical test to diagnose rosacea, but it’s usually evident through a visual examination.
There are several ways to treat rosacea, but broadband light (BBL) laser treatment is one of the most effective. Broadband light may produce dramatic results even after one treatment. You may be a good candidate for BBL laser treatment for rosacea if you are in good overall health and have realistic expectations. When you meet our specialist, you will learn if BBL treatment is your best option.
To get the optimum results, you may need multiple treatments. The number will vary among individuals according to the severity of the rosacea and the level of improvement desired. Once you have achieved your goal, you may require a maintenance treatment about once or twice a year. For some people, the best results are achieved when BBL is combined with other non-invasive treatments.
The laser light energy from the BBL device gently heats the top layers of skin. The rosacea and capillaries absorb the heat and your skin produces new collagen to heal the area. The procedure is quick and may take a few minutes or about a half an hour depending on the type of procedure being performed and the size of the area being treated.
Afterward, you can go back to work or other activities including your exercise routine. There may be some redness after the treatment, so if your face is flushed, you can wait one day, but no real downtime is required.
Along with being a treatment for rosacea, BBL laser treatment also lightens dark spots, treats acne-related issues, rejuvenates your skin, reduces wrinkles and improves the texture of your skin. You may see other improvements in your appearance along with the treatment of rosacea.
