BBL Phototherapy Treatment for Vascular Lesions or “Reds”
What It Is
Sciton’s Forever Young Broadband Light – BBL Phototherapy Treatment of vascular lesions or “reds” such as red veins, signs of rosacea, or acne. The BBL phototherapy treatment for vascular lesions gently heats the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. The photothermal energy will reduce fine vessels that cause redness. Your treatment will be customized to meet your specific condition and desired outcomes.
How It Works
For this procedure, your eyes will be protected. There may be a warm sensation as the light is absorbed by the target areas. The treatment is gentle, noninvasive and safe. No topical anesthesia is required but you may want it for super sensitive areas. After the treatment, you may have some redness which will resolve quickly. Immediately after your treatment in most cases, you will be able to go back to work, apply makeup and resume most activities. Caution – to keep your veins from opening up again refrain from any strenuous activity, alcohol, hot tub or hot showers for 48 hours after the treatment.
Is BBL Phototherapy Painful?
BBL Phototherapy is a great treatment for clients with sensitive skin, as it’s not painful or uncomfortable at all. At most, you should expect to feel a warming sensation on the treatment area. Your skin may feel a little sensitive immediately after the procedure, but this will resolve itself within a couple of days.
What is the Recovery Time?
BBL Phototherapy doesn’t require any downtime, so you don’t have to take time out of your busy schedule to treat your hyperpigmentation or spider veins. However, there are steps you’ll need to take to encourage your best results possible. Be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen, as your skin will be very sensitive to sunlight. If you’re spending a lot of time in the sun, it’s best to cover the treatment area with clothing or a hat.
I see so many clients struggling with the redness from Rosacea or the damage to tiny blood vessels. Sometimes they get so used to seeing this redness that they aren’t aware of options for improving and repairing this kind of damage. The results with BBL light therapy are amazing. As always, a consultation to discuss your specific condition is always offered at no charge.
