  • Diffused redness and small facial capillaries
  • Uneven skin / Dull complexion

What happens during a treatment?

After cleansing your skin, a light layer of gel will be applied to the areas being treated. You will then be ready for BBL hand piece. Pulses will be dispatched one at a time (over the applicable areas) and you will feel a slight pinch with every pulse.

What happens after a treatment?

Immediately following your photo rejuvenation (photofacial) treatment, you may notice your brown spots / discoloration darken. Your skin may also turn a shade of pink. This development will typically pass within a few hours to as much as a couple of days. About 1 to 3 weeks later, your darkened spots will begin to flake off and/or fade away. In addition, facial capillaries and diffused redness (if originally present) will also significantly decrease.

Are BBL photofacials (rejuvenation) safe for me?

These treatments are safe for skin types I through IV. During your initial complimentary consultation, your medical esthetician will advise if you are a suitable match for these kind of treatment.

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a common condition where isolated dark (hyperpigmentation) patches develop on the skin. Discoloration can develop due to trauma, such as cuts, burns, acne, etc. Aging and sun exposure can also lead to discoloration.

Some people are naturally prone to hyperpigmentation. If that’s the case with you, avoid excessively picking at or scratching your skin as this may cause enough damage to trigger your skin’s natural response towards hyperpigmentation.

What are Sun Spots?

Sun spots or age spots are brown discolorations that appear randomly on the skin. They are also known as liver spots. They present on the face, neck, chest, and back of the hands. This condition commonly develops when there is an excess of melanin deposits in the skin.

Melasma, another form of hyperpigmentation, is a uniform brown color usually seen over the cheeks, forehead, nose, or upper lip. Unlike sun spots or age spots, pigmentation due to Melasma may appear through hormonal changes such as during pregnancy, puberty, and by taking oral contraceptives.

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a type of chronic skin disorder that causes redness, swelling on areas of the face such as the scalp, neck, ears, chest, back or around the eyes. Some of the visible symptoms of rosacea are broken capillaries around the nose and cheeks, red pimples, visible blood vessels and the tendency to see flushed skin.

Can Rosacea be treated?

Yes.

It is still unclear what is the main cause of rosacea, but it can be managed as well as treated with various methods, including topical ointments, oral medications and light-based laser treatments.

Along with a good home skin care regime, rosacea can be treated very effectively with laser light treatments. Laser light treatments are best used for advanced cases, where there are pronounced red lines and/or broken capillaries, presenting as a flushed appearance.
