If you’re one of the sixteen million Americans with rosacea, you know the embarrassment that comes with flare-ups. Symptoms can vary significantly in severity and may include:
At Skintastic we treat rosacea with our broadband light (BBL) procedure, restoring unhealthy skin to healthy new skin.
What is BBL Laser Treatment?
Broadband light treatment uses heat to encourage the growth of collagen to replace damaged skin and heal the effects of skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, pigmentation, and lines and wrinkles due to natural aging.
What is the Effect of BBL Laser Treatment on Rosacea?
BBL Laser treatment breaks up the uneven tone of your skin by targeting areas affected by rosacea. Many of our patients find that after a series of BBL Laser treatments the symptoms of their rosacea are barely noticeable. However, each patient will respond differently to the procedure, and we recommend that you come in to receive a consultation for your specific condition.
Can BBL Laser Treatment Cure Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that cannot be cured. However, the symptoms can be managed effectively with the right treatment. Dr. Bitter, a renowned cosmetic dermatologist created these specific treatment protocols we use with our Sciton Rosacea laser settings for maximum safety and efficacy. Many of our patients have been able to stop the use of prescription topical medications with 2 to 3 treatments a year. We recommend that patients with rosacea undergo BBL Laser treatment for symptoms such as redness, irritation, and visible blood vessels.
How Many Treatments Will I Need to Clear Up My Rosacea?
BBL Laser treatment is not a one-time procedure. It is a series of two to five treatments performed every three to four weeks until symptoms resolve and then maintenance treatments are performed throughout the year. After your first series, you will see how your body responds to the procedure and how often you’ll need to return to maintain your appearance.
