Broadband Light Treatment

Treating Rosacea with BBL

Visible blood vessels and persistent redness are the hallmarks of rosacea, a chronic condition that primarily affects the face. It is a frustrating disorder that often begins with frequent facial flushing or blushing with or without inflammatory bumps. While there is no single cure for rosacea, it’s a condition that dermatologists routinely treat.

Here at Dallas Dermatology Partners, it’s often difficult to avoid triggers that cause flare-ups. Instead of covering redness and vascular lesions with make-up, our patients can achieve clearer skin with advanced Broad Band Light Therapy (BBL) rosacea treatment.

Is BBL good for rosacea?

Yes, you will see noticeable improvements after BBL for rosacea. This is because Broad Band light treatments target dilated and broken blood vessels that cause flushing and redness.

How does BBL laser for rosacea reduce redness?

The BBL Hero utilizes the power of Broad Band light to target unwanted skin pigment. Unlike other IPL devices, this innovative technology has four times the speed, three times the peak power, and twice the cooling delivery for a fast, effective, and much more comfortable treatment. BBL improves rosacea by heating broken blood vessels that are then gently eliminated. At the same time, the light energy stimulates collagen growth for a healthier, more even-toned complexion.

How comfortable is BBL for redness and rosacea?

This is a minimally invasive lunch hour treatment that is not painful. Patients will experience a sensation of warmth, or the snap of a rubber band with each pulse. The BBL Hero has built-in cooling technology to minimize discomfort. A topical anesthetic cream can be applied before the treatment if requested.

How long does it take to see results?

This depends on your skin type and the settings utilized for the BBL laser therapy. However, most of our patients see noticeable improvements in rosacea symptoms within 2-3 weeks.

What is recovery like?

There are minimal side effects or downtime after BBL treatment for rosacea. Mild redness and swelling usually resolve within 24 hours. Most people resume their normal activities right away, but it’s important to limit sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum physical sunscreen after your treatment.

How many BBL treatments are needed for rosacea?

While our patients see measurable improvements after a single BBL laser treatment for rosacea, most will require a series of two or three sessions spaced four weeks apart. The exact number of treatments needed to achieve optimal results will vary from patient to patient.

Tighten up Skin Non-Surgically With SkinTyte

There is a safe, non-surgical solution for addressing loose skin on the lower face and neck. SkinTyte by Sciton is the most advanced skin tightening treatment that harnesses the power of broad band light technology. This BBL laser treatment delivers spectacular results and has no downtime, making it a popular request here in our Dallas dermatology office.

How does SkinTyte laser tighten skin?

SkinTyte improves the appearance of mild to moderate skin laxity by gently heating dermal tissue and stimulating collagen production. The device delivers pulses of high-intensity infrared light into the dermis, causing the fibers to contract and tighten. This triggers the body’s innate healing response along with collagen remodeling. As new collagen is formed, the result is improved skin elasticity and firmness along with a more youthful appearance. The system has a built-in cooling mechanism that regulates temperature for a safe and comfortable treatment.

Does SkinTyte work on the face?

Yes, Sciton SkinTyte is used to tighten up sagging skin on the face, particularly the jowls, cheeks, and nasolabial folds. The device can be used on other parts of the body as well, such as the neck, stomach, thighs, and arms.

Is BBL SkinTyte painful?

No, BBL SkinTyte is not painful, and the treatment does not call for a topical anesthetic cream. The majority of patients describe BBL therapy as relaxing. Each pulse of broad band light produces a mild sensation of warmth.

How long is a SkinTyte treatment?

It takes between 30 and 40 minutes to perform a SkinTyte treatment on the face and neck. The length of your procedure will depend on the areas of skin being treated.

When will I see results from SkinTyte?

Results will vary on the settings utilized, but most will see measurable results from their SkinTyte treatment after 8-12 weeks.

What kind of downtime can I expect?

Because the SkinTyte procedure is non-invasive and non-surgical, you can return to your normal daily activities right away. There is no peeling or lengthy recovery period. Mild redness and a sunburn sensation are normal afterward but resolve within a few minutes. Be sure to limit UV exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin following the treatment.

How many sessions of SkinTyte do you need?

This will be determined during a one-on-one consultation with our dermatologists, but the average patient requires a series of 3 to 5 SkinTyte treatments to achieve maximum results. These sessions are usually spaced one month apart.

How long do SkinTyte results last?

A healthy lifestyle and daily sun protection can help maintain and prolong SkinTyte results. Smoother, firmer skin can last for up to two years.

Am I a good candidate for non-surgical skin tightening?

SkinTyte is a revolutionary BBL treatment for people with moderate skin looseness, not extreme laxity. It’s safe for those with darker skin tones and is completely customizable.

Banish Acne with BBL Forever Clear

Have you struggled to control acne breakouts with over-the-counter products or medications? If so, it’s time to explore the advantages of Broad Band Light (BBL) for acne.

Forever Clear BBL brings award-winning technology to treat the root cause of active acne. This advanced laser by Sciton banishes breakouts in a way that no medication or topical product can. A multi-pass approach allows our dermatologists to safely and comfortably eliminate acne, redness, and scarring that blemishes can leave behind.

How does BBL laser for acne work?

Pimple-causing bacteria are eliminated with a blue BBL light that penetrates deep into the skin’s sebaceous glands. The next pass delivers yellow broadband light energy to ease redness and inflammation. Finally, the targeted area receives the third pass of infrared light to stimulate the body’s innate healing process. Skin cells are regenerated, inflammation fades, and acne-causing bacteria are all a thing of the past. Three passes of BBL laser are all it takes to promote clearer, blemish-free skin–without harsh creams or oral medication.

Benefits of BBL for acne scars

A key benefit of the BBL Forever Clear acne treatment is that it’s highly customizable. Our dermatologists can treat everything from hormonal breakouts to acne scarring in a single session. Shorter pulse widths improve safety, and new collagen production will help reduce the appearance of acne scars for smoother, more evenly textured skin.

Who is a good candidate for BBL laser for acne?

BBL Forever Clear is safe for all skin types, making this an effective acne treatment for men and women of all ages who struggle with active acne and want to reduce future breakouts. This laser treatment is also safe for adolescents as young as 16. It also works well to clear up post-inflammatory redness once the acne is well controlled with prescriptions topicals or systemic medications such as oral isotretinoin.

Our dermatologists will evaluate your skin, and acne causes to develop a personalized treatment plan to achieve your goals.

How long does BBL laser for acne scars take?

Acne treatments with the BBL Hero are quick. Depending on the area being treated, you can have your session completed in 15-45 minutes, making this a convenient lunch-hour procedure.

What areas can be treated with Forever Clear BBL?

This cutting-edge treatment can zap acne anywhere on the body but is most commonly used on the face, neck, back, and chest.

Is Broad Band Light for acne painful?

BBL Forever Clear was designed to be extremely gentle on the most sensitive skin. The cooling handpiece minimizes discomfort, and no anesthetic is needed.

How many BBL acne treatments do I need?

The number of BBL laser treatments needed to achieve luminous, clear skin will depend on the severity of your acne and the presence of scarring. However, most patients will benefit from at least four BBL acne treatments, with semi-annual sessions to maintain results.

What is recovery like?

Acne treatment with BBL is minimally invasive, meaning a couple of days of redness and minor swelling that can be covered with mineral makeup. Our patients appreciate that downtime is virtually non-existent.

As with any IPL or laser acne treatment in Dallas, it’s crucial to limit sun exposure and wear a quality sunblock afterward.

How Often Should You Get BBL Treatments?

As an ongoing skin rejuvenating therapy, BBL treatment is typically most effective when applied 3-5 times a year.

Broad Band Light (BBL) is a corrective phototherapy treatment that is gaining traction in cosmetic dermatology for good reason. This next-generation light energy treatment is designed to address a variety of skin conditions related to sun damage, aging, and acne — with little to no downtime. Dallas Dermatology Partners offers the latest and greatest technology, BBL Hero, which offers three times the power, four times the speed, and is much more comfortable compared to regular BBL.

At Dallas Dermatology Partners, BBL treatment produces outstanding results in patients who want to correct uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, redness, and other skin complaints. While Broad Band Light is an effective tool for both preventing and reversing signs of aging and UV exposure, it is not a one-time rejuvenating treatment.
Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about BBL Hero treatment here at our practice.

How many BBL treatments do I need?

This is highly dependent on the nature and extent of your skin concerns and desired goals. Correcting extensive pigmented lesions may require more BBL treatments compared to improving rough skin texture. While BBL Hero offers three times the peak power of last-generation procedures, our dermatologists will usually recommend a minimum of three to five treatments. Medical research shows that regular BBL treatments actually change the gene expression pattern of skin cells to that of younger cells, resulting in an anti-aging effect.

How many BBL treatments per year are recommended?

We suggest at least three to four BBL treatments per year to achieve clearer, smoother, and younger-looking skin. The phototherapy is comfortable and effective at treating freckles, deep lesions, vascular abnormalities, sun spots, and mild acne scars. With each BBL laser treatment, skin quality is improved as collagen production ramps up.

Is one BBL treatment enough?

No, none of our patients will realize maximum benefits with a single BBL treatment. While some may be thrilled with initial improvements in skin tone and clarity, our dermatologists recommend at least three or four Broad Band Light therapy treatments for achieving radiant, healthy skin.

How long do BBL laser results last?

As long as you do three to four BBL treatments each year, the results will be long-lasting. Patients can maintain their vibrant glow by practicing good sunscreen habits (a mineral broad-spectrum sunblock is best) and limiting direct UV exposure.

How long after BBL laser will I see results?

Approximately two weeks after your BBL treatment, there are gradual improvements in tone, texture, and overall skin health. However, these initial results will also hinge on the phototherapy settings used.

How long do you have to wait between BBL treatments?

We generally recommend waiting 3 to 4 weeks between BBL Hero treatments, but in some cases it can be as short as 14 days.

Is BBL safe for darker skin tones?

Yes, the BBL Hero by Sciton is safe for most skin types, including dark or olive-toned skin. Please take advantage of a complimentary consultation with our aesthetician to see if BBL is right for you.
