What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic and quite common skin condition, affecting 1 in 20 people. Rosacea is so common that even some well-known public figures have the condition (Bill Clinton, Renee Zellweger, Cameron Diaz, and Prince Harry.) Severity ranges from mild to intense.

Some blush easily or experience a tendency to look flushed, with the condition affecting the central part of the face (nose and cheeks). In others, rosacea may cause visible blood vessels, swelling, or even acne-like skin changes. Eventually, rosacea may be seen permanently on the face.

What Treatments are Available for Rosacea?

Rosacea treatment with Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is extremely effective in addressing the prominent blood vessels under the skin and reducing redness. The light is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the abnormal blood vessels, causing them to heat up and clot off. After healing, they become less visible. 

At Face Forward Medical Aesthetics in Lexington, MA, we have BBL by Sciton, the world’s most powerful IPL treatment. The same light-based treatment is directed at small prominent facial blood vessels (the medical term is telangiectasias), which are often present in patients with rosacea.

Solutions for Rosacea

BBL PhotoFacial

BBL technology helps combat facial redness and prevents it from forming in the first place. The advanced light energy helps to minimize prominent blood vessels, calm inflammation, and create a smoother, more attractive appearance. Treatment is painless and rapid with no blistering. Most patients return to work or school right away after their BBL sessions.
