Rosacea Treatment

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that mainly affects the skin across the cheeks, nose and chin. It’s often mistaken as eczema, acne or a skin allergy.
Rosacea causes redness on the affected area, as well as red, pus-filled pustules. Other symptoms can include: flushing, burning and stinging sensations, and blood vessels in the skin becoming more visible. In the most severe cases, skin can thicken and enlarge, usually on the nose.

Is Rosacea Treatment Right For Me?

Although there are many treatments available on the NHS, sometimes they not right for everyone, especially people who want to take a drug free approach. At LaserLife, we use Laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat Rosacea. This treatment is suitable for most people, however some medications used to treat rosacea interact with IPL and contraindicate treatment.
Therefore, prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history will be obtained in order to confirm your suitability, advice on skin care at home and how to avoid common triggers will be provided. Before proceeding you will be asked to give informed consent and a test patch will be carried out.

How is the Treatment Performed?

A thin layer of chilled gel is applied to the skin to aid light absorption by the vessel. The light applicator is then placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. When the light hits the skin, it’s readily absorbed by the clusters of blood vessels, heating to a point where they are damaged or destroyed without damage to the surrounding skin. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. The chilled gel is removed and the area is then cooled.

During and After the Treatment

Treatments typically take from 15 to 30 minutes and can mildly uncomfortable but there is no need for anesthesia and the procedure is quite quick. Sensations vary, but most describe it as a very quick hot pin prick.
After treatment the area may feel warm for a few hours. Occasionally, delicate skin areas such as the cheeks or décolleté can be red and swollen for up to 48 hours.
Though very rare, there is a chance a small blister may form or there could be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
Treatments typically take from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area affected.
Typically a course of 6 treatments is needed for optimal results. Treatments are spaced every 4 to 6 weeks. Some maintenance may be required after the initial course is completed due to the nature of this condition.

How Quickly Does it Work?

Results can be visible straight away as some thread veins can disappear, or be less visible. With further treatment these veins will disappear and are not likely to re-occur. The number of treatments you need will vary for each person, typically a course of 6 treatments is needed for optimal results, with treatments being every 4 to 6 weeks. Rosacea can flare up again in the future, therefore some maintenance may be required after the initial course is completed.
