Facial Redness and Rosacea Treatments
What is Rosacea and rosacea treatment?
Rosacea is a harmless skin condition in which persistent skin redness occurs. This condition is often caused by small, swollen blood vessels near the surface of the skin called telangiectasias. These dilated vessels give the appearance of “flushing” or red rosy cheeks and nose which often flares up with certain triggers. The Rosacea Treatment usually requires more than one session to see results, however you will see an improvement after just one session. The small blood vessels respond well to the energy of the lasers we use, and they will slowly be reabsorbed by your body.
Can I prevent Rosacea and Telangiectasias?
There are activities which can make telangiectasias worse. The triggers are different for everyone, but commonly include:
> UV rays from the sun
> Extreme heat or cold
> Strong wind
> Alcohol and smoking
> Hot (temperature) drinks and food
> Spicy foods
> Hormone changes
Abrasive skin care products can cause irritation in the skin as well and can also worsen telangiectasias. Make sure to protect skin at all times from UV rays with mineral sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats, as well as using only gentle skin care products that don’t contain any scents, acids or retinol.
How Do Lasers Treat The Redness?
The laser beam passes through the outer skin leaving it unharmed while the targeted vessel absorbs the energy delivered by the laser in which the heat causes the blood within the tiny vessels to coagulate. Over the next few weeks, the capillaries will slowly be reabsorbed by your body and disappear.
Does the treatment hurt?
When the pulse of energy from the laser is delivered it feels like a hot snap of a rubber band on your skin. We use lots of cooling before and after the treatment and a mild topical numbing agent can be applied before the treatment if clients have a high sensitivity. Most clients tolerate the treatment quite well without numbing. Some redness can form at the treatment site, as well as mild swelling that will dissipate within 24-48 hours. Makeup can be applied after the treatment and you can go back to most of your normal activities that day.
How many treatments will I need?
You will see a tremendous improvement with just one treatment, however depending how your body responds and how many vessels you want treated you many need more than one treatment.
