Rosacea/Redness and Flushing

Although it is one of the most common skin disorders, Rosacea remains undiagnosed in millions. In fact, most people remain completely unaware of this potentially life-disruptive condition. Although it can cause significant psychological, social and occupational problems, Rosacea goes largely unrecognised, and more importantly, untreated. Rosacea can cause a red-faced look and its effects are often mistaken for acne. Severe symptoms of Rosacea can result in self-confidence and self-esteem issues, with those afflicted cancelling both social and professional engagements due to sudden flare-ups.

There is no permanent cure for Rosacea but facial redness, flushing and veins can be greatly reduced through highly effective laser treatment. Our fully-qualified LasaDerm Doctor is highly experienced and skilled in delivering this type of procedure.

Performed via Intense Pulse Light (IPL) which shrinks the blood vessels in the face and reduces the flushing dreaded by Rosacea sufferers. The specialist doctors at LasaDerm will also treat any associated facial thread veins with Ndyag Laser.

Rosacea is a skin condition of the face that gives the cheeks and nose a flushed appearance. As the condition progresses, small blood vessels and tiny pimples begin to appear on, and around, the reddened area. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment can halt the progress of the condition

Usually, we aim to significantly lessen the appearance of redness with a few treatments over a 4-6 month period. The main areas of treatment concern the following issues:-

  • Facial Redness
  • Papules and Pustules
  • Flushing

When you first attend for a consultation, our Doctor will go through with you what your main treatment goals are and recommend a particular series of treatments using one or more of the treatment protocols we use. This will primarily be guided by what bothers you most about your condition. You will have a Beau Visage 3D Skin Analysis which will highlight the extent of the rosacea and where it is and hence make the treatment more targeted and effective.

Generally IPL is best suited to treat facial redness and papules and pustules AND to treat flushing symptoms. The Ndyag Laser is used to eliminate any red facial thread veins. Most patients are troubled by a mixture of symptoms and for these patients, an alternating or combining a course of IPL/Ndyag may be the best option to try and make steady progress on more than one front.
