What causes facial redness?
When blood vessels near the surface of the skin become damaged, they leak and cause a red or flushed appearance. Chronic conditions, like rosacea, are often to blame for this problem.
Patients with rosacea often notice redness and inflammation in the central part of the face. Some factors can trigger flare-ups and make facial redness worse. These include sun damage, emotional stress, spicy foods, and alcohol consumption.
How does BroadBand Light help?
Broadband light therapy uses special wavelengths of light to target redness and other forms of hyperpigmentation. During a skin rejuvenation consultation in Dallas, Dr. Dauwe can examine your problem areas and create a treatment plan based on your goals. We perform the procedure by passing an advanced laser over the skin. The length of time needed may change based on your desired results.
Is BBL safe?
BBL can improve a wide range of cosmetic issues without harming the surrounding skin or tissue. However, side effects like redness and swelling are an expected part of the process. Dr. Dauwe will provide detailed aftercare instructions to minimize any associated discomfort with BroadBand Light therapy. For example, patients should avoid sun damage before and after treatment as well as products with harsh chemicals.
How does BBL compare to over-the-counter treatments?
BroadBand Light therapy is much more effective than any topical solution or cream available over the counter. This is because creams and serums only address surface issues, while our solution uses light energy to target areas of concern beneath the surface of the skin. Light therapy is also safer than prescription medications and drugs, which come with a number of unwanted side effects.
What can I expect from BBL results?
Some skin rejuvenation results are seen in 1 – 2 weeks after your first BBL session and will continue to improve over time. However, it could take several sessions to achieve your desired outcomes. The number of BBL treatments needed varies on a case-by-case basis and will be determined by Dr. Dauwe.
Light therapy is a long-term solution that provides significant results with proper maintenance. Our trained team recommends regular touch-up appointments, so you have a beautiful complexion for years to come. We also suggest using sunscreen to protect yourself from sun damage and prevent future hyperpigmentation.
