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.


Roacea treatments start at $200/treatment – more than one treatment may be required for optimal results. Packages available.

The Fotona SP’s ND:Yag laser offers fast, comfortable and very effective hair removal and is the only laser wavelength proven to be effective and safe for ALL skin types.

Have you already paid hundreds or even thousands of dollars towards hair removal to have everything grow back?  Are you skeptical that hair removal actually works?  We hear this concern on a regular basis in our consultations and would like to explain a few reasons why this may have happened.

There are two different technologies for hair removal, laser and IPL, if you’ve had IPL treatments for permanent hair reduction, chances are you are a firm believer that hair removal does not work ?

IPL energy (Intense Pulse Light) is produced by a strong light bulb which is intended to treat numerous skin conditions.  It is very effective for treating pigmentation, acne and vascular issues but is not effective at permanently destroying hair follicles.  Once an IPL pulse is delivered to the skin it widely disperses spreading the heat to it’s different targets.  If the pulse finds a hair follicle it will certainly deliver enough heat to temporarily affect the hair but it’s not enough to permanently destroy the follicle.   

Laser Hair Removal is VERY effective if you have a new, well maintained, high-quality laser.  Laser is very specific in its target, once the pulse is delivered a concentrated beam of light is aimed at the hair follicle, the pigment in the hair absorbs the heat until the follicle is destroyed permanently.  That is why it is so important to have a new, well-maintained laser, you need the full power of the laser to affect the hair.

Another factor that could be playing into poor results is hair color.   The laser is attracted to the pigmentation in the hair, the darker and thicker the hair the more heat the follicle will absorb permanently destroying it.  If you have light blond or white/grey hair the lack of pigmentation makes it hard for the laser to absorb into, not giving enough heat to destroy the follicle. 

Skin color also matters because laser targets pigment darker skin tones could end up absorbing some of the heat into the skin that is needed to target the hair follicle.  That is why IPL is VERY dangerous to use on skin types 4, 5 & 6.  It is a superficial disbursement of heat that the skin will absorb resulting in burns and hyperpigmentation.  Some diode lasers that are very popular for hair removal will also be attracted to the pigment in the skin in darker skin types rather than the hair.  In these circumstances, lower heat is used to prevent burns which is usually not enough to permanently destroy hair follicles. 

Unlike other wavelengths the Fotona ND:Yag laser can saeffectivelyfectively treat all skin types (1-6).  This new patented laser technology uses a method that no other laser on the market can perform!  The laser uses a fractionated beam that slowly delivers heat to each hair follicle over 4 passes allowing the hair to absorb more energy.  This technology makes treatments comfortable for clients, reduces hair by 10-25% per session and is extremely fast.
