Rosacea is a common skin concern which affects approximately twenty percent of adults, and predominantly females. Often mistaken for Acne, allergies or eczema, Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition which manifests on the face and can cause pimples, facial flushing and extreme redness. Sun exposure, stress, and certain foods can exacerbate symptoms; however, while there is no cure for Rosacea, certain treatments, such as BBL, can be of benefit in reducing its appearance.

Our bespoke BBL treatments mean that we can noticeably reduce the appearance of Rosacea. 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 BBL treatment, it is normal for the skin to be pink, although this subsides very quickly – hence, why we refer to IPL as a “no downtime treatment”. 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.
