Redness or rosacea is a common problem for people. They often want to have a more even tone skin.
One treatment we use is the broadband light, and what it does is target redness in the skin and dissipates tiny little vessels. It feels like a sense of warmth or like a rubber binder snapping at you very slight. People have redness for a few hours after one of these treatments, but then they’re fine.
We use a lot of different ways to treat redness. So one is that broadband light that I just talked about, another one is called capillary cauterization. And with that we use a tiny little wire to dissipate tiny capillaries and what we do is we create a slight scar tissue to stop that flow of the blood going through that capillary. There is very little downtime with that. And what we’re using is what we call the blend, where we’re using a galvanic and a thrombolysis current to cauterize that tiny vessel. It has been tremendously successful. In using the combination of these treatments are really amazing.

BBL light energy absorbs targets such as fine, broken vessels, rosacea and brown spots that are caused by an overproduction of melanin.
An active tan from the sun or tanning beds is not appropriate with a BBL treatment.
It is recommended that a person does not have sun exposure in the area being treated for three weeks prior to the treatment with BBL. Self tanners must be faded from the skin for at least a week to 10 days before treatment.
The number of treatments vary from each individual. We often combine other procedures to to further enhance the outcome.
Your eyes will be covered by safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted area.
This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup and resume activities immediately.
