Facial redness can be caused by broken capillaries and rosacea. Phototherapy involves the reduction of these signs of aging and skin defects by using non-invasive pulses of BroadBand Light (BBL). There is a specific filter to target redness and small blood vessels. The blood vessels in the deeper layers of the skin absorb the light and the heat created by the light damages the vessels. The vessels are shut down and the body continues to absorb the destroyed vessel remnants and they reduce in size or disappear over around 2 weeks.
Vessels can require more than one treatment and sessions can be repeated every 3-4 weeks until the desired effect if achieved.
