Facial Aging and Lasers like Fraxel/Clear + Brilliant, RF like VIVA, Peels, Fillers, Skin Care, Face Lift, Fat Injections
I often combine IPL with fractional laser to get the best outcomes. I suggest consulting with a laser expert. Best, Dr. Emer
In many cases BBL is an effective treatment for facial redness. Usually it is helpful to do a series of treatments spaced about one month apart. BBL treatment is safest for patients with lighter skin who don't have a tan. The most important factor is the experience of the person doing your treatment. I also utilize pulsed dye laser for facial redness but the disadvantage of PDL is that it can cause temporary bruising or purpura. BBL does not typically cause bruising so I usually will start with that.
Than you for your question. BBL a form of IPL is a good treatment for diffuse redness. However, the gold standard treatments currently for redness involve the use of lasers, like the Excel V and Pulsed Dye laser, and not lights like IPL. The Excel V particularly in combination with Genesis V yields superior results and fewer treatments to any form of broadband light (IPL). Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
