Rosacea and facial redness is best treated with a combination of laser treatments and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. The laser works by gently heating the upper dermis below the skin surface stimulating collagen re-growth and reducing skin inflammation. Additionally, heat is generated in the microvascular region beneath the skin which reduces facial redness. Laser treatment can also reduce the appearance of telangiectasias, which are small red blood vessels that can sometimes be seen within areas affected by rosacea. Intense pulsed light penetrates the skin and constricts the blood vessels, reducing redness. Combining both laser and IPL treatments in a six session package of three laser treatments and three IPL treatments is in our experience the most effective way to treat rosacea and facial redness
Disappointed with the effectiveness of topical treatments for rosacea?
Topical treatments are the obvious starting points for rosacea treatment and work well for some patients. Other patients require a more intense reduction of inflammation and do not respond well to the usual topical creams. Fortunately, facial redness and rosacea in these patients can gradually reduce with a number of laser and IPL treatments to the skin over time.
