There are many causes of facial redness ranging from genetics to sun-damage and the natural aging process. One of the most challenging causes of facial redness is the inflammatory skin condition known as rosacea. Unfortunately, the condition worsens with time if not addressed. There is no cure for rosacea, but with proper care, it is controllable.
What Are My Options?
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we have two unique treatments designed specifically for facial redness and pigmentation problems. While one patient may be better suited for Pulsed Dye Laser treatment, another might be a better fit for a series of BBL™ treatments. Today, we’ll take a closer look at both to help you make an informed decision.
VBeam® is the most advanced form of Pulsed Dye Lasers on the market today. Intense but gentle light energy is delivered to the targeted area. Offending blood vessels absorb the light causing them to eventually rupture and burst. Over time, the body naturally reabsorbs damaged pigmentation. You’re left with skin that has a smooth, even complexion.
VBeam® Perfecta is done in-office and generally takes less than one hour to complete. Although several sessions may be needed to get the results you want, you should see visible improvement after just one visit. Downtime is variable but is generally minimal for most.
Forever Young BBL™
Forever Young BBL™ is a non-invasive treatment option for combating a variety of pigmentation-related concerns. BBL™ uses laser light energy to precisely target pigmented lesions and facial redness such as rosacea. The procedure effectively damages blood vessels while leaving surrounding tissue completely unharmed.
BBL™ treatments are generally quick and easy. They’re customized to meet your specific goals and have very little downtime involved. In many instances, you’ll be able to get back to your day-to-day routine immediately with minimal restrictions. Initial results from Forever Young BBL™ are often seen in about 2-weeks with continued improvement over time.
