What Is Rosacea?

It may begin as a tendency to flush or blush easily and progress to persistent redness in the center of the face that may gradually involve the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. It also may involve the ears, chest and back.

Some people experience facial redness, inflammation, burning or warm tingly sensations. As the disease progresses, small blood vessels and tiny pimples begin to appear on and around the reddened area; however, unlike acne, there are no blackheads. Some patients suffer from inflamed pustules or spots.

Rosacea is primarily a disorder of the facial blood vessels that undergo changes and become hyper responsive to internal and external triggers such as sun exposure, heat, rich foods, caffeine and alcohol.

How can Rosacea be treated?

Traditional treatments for Rosacea include tropical and oral anti-inflammatory and antibiotic medications. However, Intense Pulsed Light has been clinically proven as being successful in reducing the side-effects of Rosacea.

Intense Pulsed Light therapy uses multiple wavelengths of light to treat dilated blood vessels in the face. The vascular structures which are responsible for causing Rosacea respond to the precise energy level and wavelength of light that is emitted via the laser. The small spot of laser light travels through the skin and is absorbed by the blood within these vessels. The resulting heat coagulates or clots the blood and destroys the function of the vessel. Over time, the vessel is absorbed by the body and disappears from sight. This leads to reduction of the redness and flushing appearance of facial skin.

How long do treatments take?

A treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes and is typically performed at six week intervals. Clients may require several initial treatments and then return annually for treatment of new blood vessels. Our team of highly trained professionals will create a skin rejuvenation program for you.
