Frequently asked QUESTIONS rosacea
If your symptoms are all about redness then laser treatment is an ideal choice. The most effective treatment is IPL (intense pulsed light). The laser is used to get rid of the inflamed blood vessels that are visible on your skin.
This significantly reduces flushing and redness on the skin. You will have to go for a few sessions for this to work and the number of sessions depends on the severity of your rosacea as well. Of course, you will know more after consultation.
Do remember that laser treatment is not a cure for this condition. It will reduce the redness and other symptoms by at least 40 – 60%. The result may also last anywhere from months to years.
However, a few months or years down the line many new blood vessels may show up that will require follow-up.
There is much debate about this method for rosacea because chemical peels involve dissolving dead skin cells and so this can lead to even more irritation and redness.
However, all of this depends on the acids and application technique your skin expert chooses. The most common acid that is used for this is glycolic acid.
It is used at a low concentration to treat the symptoms of rosacea. Redness is reduced as the blood vessels are dilated through the use of this peel.
The chemical peels also take a few sessions to fully work and this also depends on you and the severity of your rosacea. One thing to note here is that you should not opt for a chemical peel if your skin is extremely dry.
This is because sensitive and dry skin people are not the perfect candidates for this. Your skin may damage further. Of course, one of our skin experts that you consult with will provide the treatment option that is best suited to your skin and needs.
If you are tired of all the redness and flushing due to rosacea then seek treatment now. Both these treatments are not cures. However, they relieve symptoms and the results can last for years.
