How to Treat Rosacea

Nothing is more frustrating than having a condition that is not curable, especially when it involves your face! Your face makes first impressions and is always literally in front of everyone you meet. Having rosacea, an inflammatory skin disorder that causes flushing red skin, bumps, and visible blood vessels, is a constant source of frustration. However, at Skinatomy Laser Clinic, we have some treatments that can help you control the symptoms and feel better about facing each day.

What Treatments Are Available for Rosacea?

Two treatments that help control the symptoms of rosacea are facial treatment called the IPL Photofacial and the ND YAG treatment. We will share a little about each here and during your consultation, our staff will help you choose the treatment that is best for you. Many rosacea clients have had great success in controlling the symptoms of their condition with one or both of these treatments. 

The ND Yag Treatment

The ND Yag Treatment treatment gets its name from the neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet crystal that is used in this laser treatment. This infrared laser targets melanin found in the skin and works to break it down so it can be absorbed by your body over time. Most of our clients will need 3-6 treatments that are spaced 2-3 weeks apart to rid their skin of the redness, bumps, and blood vessels by breaking them down and allowing them to be flushed away naturally by the body.  Each treatment takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and since there is no downtime, clients can immediately return to their daily schedules. It will be important to use sunscreen following each treatment when exposed to long periods of time in direct sunlight.

IPL Photofacial 

The IPL Photo Facial, also known as IPL Photo Rejuvenation is an Intense Pulsed Light treatment used to create a smoother and more even skin tone.   In addition to reducing the appearance of redness and lesions/bumps associated with rosacea, the IPL treatment can eliminate spider veins, reduce the appearance of scarring, enlarged pores, and blemishes.

During the treatment, the technician will target specific cells in the second layer of skin with light energy. The cells absorb this energy and transform it into heat, which damages the cells and stops them from reproducing. These damaged cells are then absorbed by the body and removed naturally leaving clearer skin in its place. An IPL treatment averages 45-60 minutes per session and clients usually need 3-5 treatments to achieve their desired results. There is no downtime with the IPL Photo Facial treatment.

We would love to help you choose the treatment that is right for helping you control your rosacea and regain your confidence. It’s the perfect time to put your best face forward in 2021.
