Rosacea Q & A
What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic, sometimes life-disrupting skin disease that causes flare-ups of redness on your face. The disease can also affect your neck, chest, or scalp.
About 16 million adults in the United States suffer from rosacea. Although it’s prevalent among women, men tend to have the most severe symptoms.
The most common symptoms of rosacea include:
- Flushing (the earliest sign of the disorder)
- Persistent redness (the most common symptom)
- Bumps or pimples that look like acne
- Visible blood vessels
- Thickening of the skin, especially on the nose
How does laser treatment for rosacea work?
If medicines and skin creams have failed to improve your rosacea symptoms, laser treatment may be the answer. Bella Figure Laser Institute customizes your laser treatment to your personal needs and concerns.
Trained technicians at Bella Figure use the Cutera xeo device, a leading tool in pulsed laser treatments. Laser treatment can even out your facial complexion by removing visible blood vessels, reducing redness, and improving thickened skin.
What can I expect from a laser treatment for rosacea?
First, the Bella Figure laser technician gently cleans the treatment area to remove excess dirt and oil. You’re given special protective eyewear to guarantee your safety throughout the procedure.
When you’re ready, the laser technician uses the Cutera xeo device to pass a pulsed laser over the affected skin. It’s a painless procedure, but you may feel warmth or minor discomfort.
Side effects of laser treatment for rosacea are minimal and rarely last beyond two weeks. The most common side effects include:
How effective is laser treatment for rosacea?
Laser treatment results vary depending on the person and severity of their rosacea. Receiving multiple treatments at 3-4 week intervals is common.
When the procedure is used to remove visible blood vessels, studies show that most patients see a 50-75% reduction after 1-3 treatments, with some patients experiencing 100% improvement. For redness caused by rosacea, studies show that laser treatment produces a more modest improvement of about 20% in most cases.
