Rosacea is a common inflammatory and vascular disorder affecting the face. Redness, visible blood vessels, bumps, and pimples typically appear in the middle of the face (forehead, nose, cheeks) after age 30 in men and women.
Laser treatment for Rosacea uses pulses of light to treat the blood vessels that are associated with the facial redness. Laser treatment for rosacea may improve facial tone by diminishing the broken blood vessels and acne-like breakouts associated with rosacea.
Medication-based treatments for rosacea may have systematic side effects and could be dangerous for women who are pregnant or nursing.
Rosacea laser treatments may be used on any skin type.
Laser treatment for rosacea:
- Reduces Redness, rash, and flushing
- Treats Acne-like papules, pustules and patches
- Reduces swelling, inflammation and discomfort
- Improves skin tone, texture, and color
- Treats visible blood vessels
Light-based treatments for rosacea target broken blood vessels without harming healthy skin.
Patients feel a warm sensation on the skin during treatment, and may see visible improvement after your first treatment.
Sessions may take less than 30 minutes.
There is no down time associated with rosacea laser treatments.
Depending on the severity of the condition, temporary redness, itching, and swelling may last a few days.
Depending on the severity of your condition, two or more treatments may be necessary to achieve the best results.
