Do you have visible blood vessels and acne-like bumps on your face? Do you have flare-ups where you flush and turn red? Rosacea is very common, but many people struggle with finding effective ways to treat it. Rosacea episodes tend to get worse instead of better as you age, so starting treatment now can benefit you in the long term. 

What is Rosacea?

The causes of rosacea remain undetermined, but heredity plays a role, and so do environmental factors like sun exposure and smoking. The most noticeable characteristic of rosacea is facial redness, often with small visible blood vessels. Many people also develop pimple-like bumps that worsen the redness. Stress, spicy food, temperature changes, and skincare products can trigger a rosacea flare, along with many other potential triggers.

How Can I Treat My Rosacea?

At Levy Dermatology, we have found BBL™ (BroadBand Light) technology the most effective treatment for rosacea. BBL™ uses powerful light energy that heats the outer layers of skin to trigger cell turnover and regeneration. BBL™ targets the pigments in the visible red blood vessels under the skin, breaking them down. The body will absorb these, leaving the skin clearer and more even. 

How Many Rosacea Treatments Will I Need?

We can customize your BBL™ treatment plan to meet your needs. A typical plan will have four to six treatments, each spaced a month apart. Following this, we will establish a schedule for maintenance treatments to keep your rosacea under control. Many people have maintenance treatments one to two times a year. 

What Results Will I See From Rosacea Treatment With BBL™?

For optimal results, BBL™ treatment should work with, not replace, medications or medical-grade skincare products already in use. You may see improvements in skin tone and redness after your first treatment, and these results will continue to get better. As a benefit, BBL™ will also brighten, smooth, and soften your skin while improving sun damage and hyperpigmentation. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Rosacea Treatment With BBL™?

Most people with rosacea can have BBL™ treatment. It works safely and causes no injury to the skin. If you have rosacea and have not achieved the level of improvement you want from your current treatment regimen, BBL™ may be your next step. 

Is There Any Downtime With Rosacea Treatment With BBL™?

Your skin may be red and flushed for a few hours after treatment. If you have dark spots, they may darken and flake before disappearing completely. You can return to your regular activities after treatment, although you may wait an hour or two if you feel self-conscious about redness.
