Rosacea is a skin disorder characterized by redness and acne-like effects. Rosacea affects over 16 million Americans – the majority of whom don’t realize they are suffering from rosacea. The cause of rosacea is unknown and there is no absolute cure. Fortunately, medical treatments such as BBL™ (Broad Band Light) treatments can alleviate and mitigate rosacea.
BBL™ treatments have been found to heal the effects of skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, pigmentation, and lines and wrinkles. BBL™ Lasers work by emitting bright lights at high energy levels during a non-ablative procedure. The lasers stimulate your skin to produce more collagen and break the unevenness of your skin, allowing your skin to create a more even and balanced appearance. Additionally, the thermal energy removes the vessels that cause skin redness, reducing the appearance and affects of rosacea.
BBL™ treatments often require a series of four to six treatments performed several weeks apart. Depending on the results of your first series, your doctor can help you create a treatment plan to alleviate the effects of rosacea. Though there is no known cure for rosacea, BBL™ treatments offer long-lasting rosacea improvements, giving you smoother, more balanced skin with no downtime, virtually no discomfort, and minimal side effects.
