Buh-bye facial redness!

Amazing, light based technology works to erase many of the unwanted signs of Rosacea. This effective technology allows light to pass through surface skin cells, destroying unwanted pigmentation and blood-vessels. The end result of this treatment is a noticeable decrease in unwanted signs of Rosacea. Your skin tone will immediately become clearer, and the redness will disappear.

What are Rosacea treatments?

These state of the art laser skin-treatments utilize Broadband Light to destroy the surface, unwanted blood-vessels that accompany Rosacea. Although there is no permanent cure for Rosacea, BBL is an effective treatment for managing the condition. Patients can go through life with normal, healthy, even colored skin.

What other types of skin conditions can be treated with Rosacea laser skin treatments?

There are many Rosacea-related skin conditions that can be successfully treated with laser skin treatments, such as:

  • Hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone
  • Red or flushed skin
  • Small broken capillaries
  • Rosacea related acne

* Please note that individual results may vary.

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.
