IPL Rosacea Treatment
Dilated capillaries are often provoked by sun exposure, pressure, hormonal changes and heredity, to name some common influences. Although the exact cause is often unknown, rosacea can be effectively treated with the appropriate techonology.
Rosacea can appear as red or purple tiny vessels in colour and as strands or clusters creating a general overall red appearance. Photorejuvenation is a great option for the treatment of Rosacea.
Treating Rosacea With IPL
Photo Rejuvenation or photorejuvenation (also known as photofacials) with the LimeLight™ effectively treats red dyschromia such as rosacea while improving the skin’s texture and tone. The LimeLight™ Photo rejuvenation system is the first light based, 3 in 1 programmable wavelength device for skin rejuvenation. This programmable wavelength capability allows us to accurately target your skin concern revealing visible results in as little as 1-3 treatments spaced at 4 weeks apart.
Immediately following your photofacial rosacea treatment the skin will appear slightly pink. This typically lasts a few hours to possibly a few days. During a time span of one to three weeks post your photofacial treatment, rosacea will disappear as the intense pulse light coagulates these tiny little vessels prompting the body to eliminate these tiny veins through its natural healing process. Photo rejuvenation for rosacea is suitable for skin types I to III.
When you come in for your first rosacea photorejuvenation treatment, we will begin by cleansing the skin. The face is mapped out or divided in small sections to ensure even coverage. Goggles are placed over the client’s eyes for safety. A thin layer of gel is applied to the skin. The photo rejuvenation hand piece is applied to the skin one pulse at a time. You will feel a sharp pinch with every photorejuvenation pulse.
Before beginning rosacea treatments at Bellair Laser Clinic, we encourage all clients to visit us for a complimentary rosacea skin consultation. At this time we will analyze your skin and provide recommendations for which treatments are best for you based on your skin’s needs and your personal goals for your skin.
