Rosacea Laser Treatment



This is a skin condition which appears as red inflammation on the face and can cause broken blood vessels. Spots or bumps may appear similar in appearance to acne and can come and go. Symptoms include:

  • Small red spots and bumps
  • Visible small blood vessels
  • Blushing and flushing
  • A stinging or burning feeling on the face
  • Dry, red, itchy or burning eyes
  • Red or swollen nose


Can I treat rosacea at home?

Some people avoid spicy foods and drinks such as alcohol. You can reduce the amount of time you spend in direct sunlight, and avoid hot showers and heated swimming pools. Using gentle soap-free cleansers and oil-free skincare products can be helpful as well as applying SPF sunscreen before leaving home.


How many sessions before I see a difference?

This depends on the severity of your particular skin concern, your medical history, and how your skin responds. We usually recommend 3 sessions, with a break of 6-12 weeks between each session.

Until only recently, the only available remedy for sufferers was to manage symptoms. Lifestyle changes were proposed to reduce flare-ups, creams used to reduce pimples, and laser practices to eliminate conspicuous blood vessels.

Researchers have now shown that rosacea victims have small demodex mites in their skin. This is commonplace amongst the general population, and these mites live on foreheads, cheeks, and on the nose. These are the same areas of the face commonly affected by rosacea. However, researchers don’t know why rosacea sufferers have increased numbers of mites on their faces, or how these mites contribute to symptoms. Still, a new treatment aimed at controlling the mites has yielded positive results.

While Demodex can be reduced with a pulse dye laser or NdYag, this will not eliminate the cause. There are also many types of rosacea, i.e. telangiectatic or capillaries, flushing and redness, acne like rosacea, ocular rosacea and rhinophyma rosacea. In addition, sufferers have unique triggers. For example, sunlight, stress, foods, chemical irritants, creams, changes in temperature, and alcohol. Lasers can treat the redness, broken capillaries, rhinophyma, and flushing. The leading laser is the V BEAM.
