BBL for Rosacea
Are you frustrated continually treating your Rosacea?
Rosacea is a long-term condition causing the skin around your nose and cheeks to become red, bumpy, and itchy, which can lead to chronic inflammation and redness. BBL goes below the surface level of the skin and treats rosacea at the root of the problem. This usually takes approximately 5 treatment sessions to reduce the rosacea.

What Is Rosacea
Rosacea is a condition where the skin around your nose and cheeks becomes red, bumpy, and itchy. It can also cause pimples that are hard to cover up with makeup or concealer.
Symptoms can vary significantly in severity and may include:
Patches of redness on the face.
Itchy or tearing eyes.
Tiny blood vessels suddenly visible on the face.
Bumps or clusters of pimples.
What Causes Rosacea
The skin condition rosacea is often misunderstood and mistaken for other conditions. Rosacea can be triggered by a number of factors such as sun exposure, exercise, certain foods, alcohol consumption or the use of certain topical medications.
The first signs are usually redness on the cheeks with spidery veins running from it to various areas around your face. These symptoms may vary depending on what type you get but they all eventually lead to flaky dry patches along with bumps and pimples across your forehead, nose, chin, and neck area.
If left untreated this will also cause permanent scarring similar to acne scars due hardening cells which form when we heal wounds over time
How Do You Fix Rosacea
BBL Laser treatment breaks up the uneven tone of your skin by targeting areas affected by rosacea to stimulate collagen growth. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that cannot be cured. However, the symptoms can be managed effectively with the right treatment.
We recommend that patients with rosacea undergo a series of BBL treatments for symptoms such as redness, irritation, and visible blood vessels. Depending on the exact appearance of your rosacea you may also need medication to control flare-ups that cause clusters of pimples to form

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 5 to 7 treatments performed every one to two weeks. After your first series, you will see how your body responds to the procedure and how often you will need to return to maintain your appearance.
What to Expect from BBL™ Treatments for Rosacea
BBL™ treatments for rosacea are quick and virtually painless. Most patients describe the sensation as a tiny rubber band being snapped against their skin, but it is often the flash of the pulses that is the most noticeable aspect of BBL™ treatments.
A BBL™ treatment for rosacea typically takes around 20 minutes and makeup can be applied immediately after treatment. Many of our patients return to work or normal activities after receiving their treatment.
How does BBL for Rosacea work?
BBL™ bypasses the top layer of skin to direct energy to deeper levels where rosacea is formed, it is an ideal treatment because it makes possible the deeply restorative benefits of new cell growth beneath the skin’s surface without triggering a flare up. In addition to stimulating new cell growth.
BBL™ uses an advanced form of light energy to shrink and close the blood vessels that cause rosacea which leads to a calmer appearance. Over the course of several weeks, the body continues to absorb the destroyed vessel remnants.
Dr. Delaney’s Input on BBL for Rosacea
Rosacea is a particularly frustrating skin condition because there are countless “treatments” for it that actually further inflame symptoms. Rather than treating rosacea topically, we can take advantage of new technology of BBL that allows for treatment at the source. By bypassing the skin’s surface, rosacea flare ups are kept to a minimum while therapeutic light pulses treat dilated blood vessels and sources of redness.
These pre- and post- care instructions are intended to guide you through the treatment process and get you on your way to naturally beautiful skin!
WHAT TO DO BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT?
- Use sunscreen and physical sun protection.
- Avoid extended sun exposure, i.e., beach, travel to sunny locations, sunbathing, sports
- Inform your BBL clinician if any physician has ordered Accutane for you in the last 6 months.
- Inform your doctor of any medical conditions or medications you are taking that might sensitize you to light.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR TREATMENT?
- The procedure is typically gentle and safe.
- There is no need for a topical anesthetic.
- Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses.
- You may briefly feel a warm or rubber band snap sensation as the light is absorbed.
WHAT TO DO AFTER YOUR TREATMENT?
- You may experience some redness in the treatment area that should resolve within a few hours.
- You may notice darkening of your pigmented spots, followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage.
- Follow your clinician’s aftercare plan. There is virtually no downtime after this non-invasive and gentle procedure. In most cases, you are able to apply make-up, return to work and resume most of your activities immediately.
- No exercise for 3 days after.
TIPS & TRICKS
- Use soft cloth and towels to avoid any scrubbing.
- Wear a wide-brimmed hat or sun protecting clothing post treatment to avoid blistering, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and hypopigmentation.
- If the treated area is especially warm within the first 12 hours after the treatment, a cold compress or ice pack can be used to provide comfort.
- If the skin appears red or swollen (sunburn sensation), an icepack can provide comfort, same as Vitamin E or Aloe Vera applied to the treatment area. In rare cases, oral pain relievers, i.e., Extra Strength Tylenol or Advil, may be used.
