Rosacea is a common skin condition that many patients struggle with. It can initially cause the skin to appear blush – with worsening symptoms including rough, red skin, visible blood vessels, acne-like breakouts, and stinging and burning sensations. Although the exact cause of rosacea is unknown, and there is no exact cure for the skin condition, there are various treatments available for alleviating symptoms and minimizing breakouts. At Orchidia Medical Group, we offer revolutionary BBL for rosacea treatments for a clearer and healthy complexion.
What is BBL for Rosacea?
BBL for rosacea is an innovative and non-invasive treatment that utilizes the healing benefits of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to target and eliminate the appearance of rosacea at the source. This advanced system works to deliver a series of combined wavelengths to the underlying layers of skin tissue. The IPL then targets, and is absorbed by the inner components of skin that are responsible for excessive redness and rosacea on the surface. WIth this revitalizing laser treatment, you can combat rosacea and maintain a vibrant complexion.
How Does it Work?
Like with any aesthetic treatment, an initial consultation and skin analysis is first performed in order to address your specific areas of concern and skin needs. During treatment, the BBL device is held to the surface of skin in the targeted treatment area. The system then works to emit a variety of wavelengths in a series of pulses beneath the surface of skin. These wavelengths work to target and penetrate the particular skin structures and bacteria that cause redness and rosacea outbreaks. This is effective at rupturing them – causing them to be naturally eliminated from the body overtime. Simultaneously, the IPL triggers a natural healing response in the body. New, healthy tissue is regenerated for improved texture, tone, and neutralization of skin.
What to Expect
Each BBL for Rosacea treatment typically takes about 15 to 60 minutes to complete. For optimal results, 3 to 5 treatments a few weeks apart are recommended. Treatments cause minimal discomfort. The sensation produced as the IPL is linked to the feeling of a warn rubber band lightly snapping against the surface of skin. The skin may appear slightly red for a short amount of time following treatment. However, this will subside, and you can notice visible results for clearer, smooth skin in the weeks following your treatment.
