Laser treatment to restore your skin tone and color for facial areas suffering from rosacea. Broken capillaries and other visible areas will be gently eliminated from the upper layers of your skin surface.These areas are preferentially heated by the laser energy and become less noticeable. All skin areas can be treated.
This treatment will target the following conditions:
How do the Rosacea laser treatments work?
Our Rosacea treatments work by exposing the compromised skin to intense pulsed light which destroys the numerous surface veins that make up Rosacea. The net result is the reduction of surface redness, broken blood vessels, splotchy skin color, and sun-spots.
Who can be treated with Rosacea laser skin treatments?
Men and women of all skin types and colors can be treated safely and effectively with our Rosacea IPL/BBL laser skin treatments. Once your skin is seen in person, the best settings will be determined for your unique skin in order to get you the best results.
How many treatments are needed to manage Rosacea?
On average, 3 to 4 IPL/BBL treatments are needed to clear-up current Rosacea treatments, with another treatment recommended about once a year for maintenance purposes.
How long are Rosacea treatments?
These treatments are relatively quick, treating the entire face takes about 20-30 minutes.
Do Rosacea treatments hurt?
Most patients describe the treatment as feeling similar to a quick rubber-band snap against the skin. Although not necessarily a pleasant sensation, the treatment is over so quickly that everyone has an easy time getting through it. For the more sensitive, taking an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory (such as Aleve or Motrin) 30-45 minutes before treatment can help alleviate any discomfort.
What will I look like immediately after a Rosacea treatment?
One of the most satisfying things about these Rosacea laser treatments is that the results are almost immediate. As soon as your treatment is completed, you will notice a significant decrease in skin redness, which will continue to improve over the following 24-hours.
Are the results permanent?
Unfortunately, these treatments do not permanently cure Rosacea, and instead they are just a way to beautifully manage it. Maintenance treatments will be needed, but the frequency will depend largely on how you care for your skin in the meantime. Those with Rosacea should avoid any known triggers, such as sun exposure, spicy food, red wine, and over-heating.
