Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes chronic inflammation to the skin, typically on the face. Rosacea can be caused by a number of factors, including genetic, environmental, vascular, and inflammatory triggers. Rosacea symptoms include the following:
Can Laser Treatment Help Rosacea?
Laser treatment for rosacea and light therapies can be highly-effective solutions to calm the redness associated with the condition. Our highly-trained and experience staff use a treatment called intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, which uses high-intensity pulses of light at multiple wavelengths to break down blood vessels and discolored pigmentation on the skin. IPL therapy is effective as an acne rosacea treatment as well.
IPL therapy is a non-invasive resurfacing technique that only affects the lower layers of the skin without affecting the top layers of the skin. Patients usually require a series of treatment sessions, which are performed four to eight weeks apart. Most patients report reduced visible blood vessels, flushing and redness.
This technique requires little to no downtime and has a low likelihood of side effects. Temporary side effects may include redness and soreness of the treatment area the day after treatment.
How Long Does Rosacea Laser Treatment Last?
The bottom line is that laser treatment for rosacea and light therapies can be highly effective and non-invasive compared to using topical medicated solutions. But the best part is that treatment can last for many years. Once rosacea laser treatments and light therapies are complete, patients often will continue to have clearer skin on average 3-5 years, with some reporting clear skin for up to 8 years.
