What can help?

BBL (Broadband Light) is excellent in treating red blood vessels or broken capillaries. It works by beaming a range of different light wavelengths into the skin, where they react with the target haemoglobin (the red pigment which gives blood cells their colour), causing it to shatter. One of the reasons we love using the BBL device is that it improves multiple skin issues in a single session, and broken blood vessels rarely exist in isolation. By using a combined approach we can normally achieve the best overall improvement in our patient’s skin.

QUESTIONS

We use cold air to cool the skin and provide a comforting sensation during the treatment, distracting from any heat generated as a by product of the treatment.

Our bespoke BBL treatments mean that we can noticeably reduce the appearance of red blood vessels or broken capillaries, whilst simultaneously improving the overall quality of your skin. It is vitally important that you do not come for a treatment if you have tanned skin, either real or fake, or if you have recently used any photosensitising medications (the most common of which are tetracycline antibiotics, a commonly prescribed acne suppressant).

Following treatment, it is normal for the skin to be a little red, although this has usually calmed by the next day. Treated freckles will be noticeably darker within a few hours; however, these will start to fade a week or so later and will eventually flake off, revealing smooth new skin. It is advisable to keep the complexion clear of makeup and to use a mild skincare routine and a high SPF in the days following.

 

Your doctor will recommend a course of treatment based on your needs, with four weeks between each session. While best results are visible following completion of the course, you should be able to notice a progressive improvement after each session.
