Rosacea Treatment

Rosacea is an extremely common skin condition that affects the face.

Thanks to recent advances in laser technologies, here at Rejuvenating Solutions we offer different laser skin care techniques to help reduce the symptoms of rosacea.

We are able to diagnose and offer treatment plans to treat rosacea, with little or no downtime and recovery.

The four different sub-types of rosacea are:

  • Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea: Sufferers will have facial redness, often described as a flushed appearance, and maybe visible blood vessels below the skin of the face
  • Papulopustular Rosacea: Often termed acne rosacea, this form of rosacea is characterised by inflamed skin, which may include spots, pimples or small bumps. This form of Rosacea mainly affects the face but may be found on other parts on the body and head.
  • Phymatous Rosacea: Also known as Rhinophyma, this rosacea subtype affects the nose.  Patients are typically older men. The colour of the nose can range from a darker pink to purple. Excess tissue growth (usually affecting the lower part of the nose) can cause distortion of the shape of the nose.
  • Ocular Rosacea (Subtype 4): In this subtype eyelids can appear to be puffy or swollen. Other characteristics include red and irritated looking eyes, dry or watery eyes, light sensitivity, and a stinging sensation in the eyes.


Rosacea triggers

Anything that causes a flare up of rosacea is known as a trigger. Some rosacea triggers are more widely documented but others are less well known. It is important for the patient to discover what may be causing their rosacea in order to help reduce flare ups and prevent the worsening of the condition.

Rosacea FAQs

We will assess your rosacea and take some medical details from you. Treatment options will be fully explained to you and you will have the opportunity to ask any questions.

Your therapist apply a thin layer of gel to your face and you will be required to wear a pair of eye protecting glasses.

The therapist will and provide you with eye protectors.  During the treatment, your therapist will move the handheld applicator over your face to deliver a short pulse of light to the area to be treated.

While being treated the IPL machine will deliver bursts on red light to the treatment area.

You will feel a small degree of warmth and a light sensation that feels like a light tapping on the skin.

The IPL treatment will not take longer than approximately 30 minutes.

Depending on the severity of the rosacea we estimate that 3-6 treatments scheduled about a month apart would be required to receive optimal results. This varies from patient to patient.

IPL is one of the most effective therapies for the treatment of rosacea. You should start to see improvements in your skin condition within a few days after the first treatment. Optimal results will be noticed after a course of 3-6 treatments over the course of 3-6 months. Again, this will vary, depending on the patient.

You should expect a certain degree of redness and swelling after your treatment. Occasionally, after IPL treatment, patients report an itchy sensation. You may also notice that any age spots on the face may start to crust over and after time start to flake off.

IPL treatments are generally regarded as a very safe treatment when carried out by a fully trained professional therapist. As will all treatments there is a small risk of side effects. Your therapist will carry out a patch test prior to the treatment to negate any risk of side effects.

IPL treatment for Rosacea

IPL for rosacea has been tested across the world and is proven to be a safe and effective treatment.

IPl works by applying controlled light energy to the affected area. The light energy is then attracted to the red blood cells. The application of the laser heats up the blood vessels instantly to effectively destroy the blood vessel lining.

The intense pulsed light works to alleviate any redness, inflammation, reduce uneven skin tones and blemishes that are caused by the condition. IPL for rosacea is a gentle yet efficient way to gradually improve your skin, and aid in it’s return to its healthy state.
