IPL/ BBL for controlling and reducing rosacea and broken capillaries

IPL technology has been a proven technology to remove uneven skin tone and broken capillaries caused by rosacea, sun and genetic.



How do Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or BBL and Lasers work?

Both Intense Pulsed Light and Laser systems emit light which is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.

Which types of veins can be treated?

Most red skin lesions including broken capillaries, rosacea, spider naevi can be treated with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).

How is the IPL/ BBL treatment carried out?

For Intense Pulsed Light or BBL treatment a thin layer of chilled gel is applied to the skin to aid light absorption by the vessel. The light applicator is then placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.

Who is suitable for IPL/ BBL treatment?

IPL/ BBL treatment is suitable for most people, however, best results are obtained for those with fair skin with a lower chance of side effects. The best response is seen with broken capillaries, spider naevi and rosacea.

Is IPL/ BBL treatment painful?

IPL/ BBL treatment feels like a hot elastic band flicking the skin. Some may opt to reduce the discomfort with a numbing cream.

How many IPL/ BBL treatments are necessary?

Typically a series of treatments are needed for maximum results.

As with all medical procedures, the number of treatments required is very individual. It is important to have a thorough discussion with an experienced cosmetic doctor to assess your suitability.

Am I suitable for IPL/ BBL treatment?

Most people are suitable for treatment except for very dark skinned or tanned individuals.

Are there any side effects from the IPL/ BBL treatments?

After IPL/ BBL treatment, it is common for the area to become red and warm. The redness and swelling usually disappears within hours to a few days. Though very rare, there is a chance a small blister may form and there could be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.

Administered by inexperienced and unqualified people, IPL can have serious side effects such as burns and scars. Therefore it is important to see an experienced doctor for your skin treatment.
