How Laser Treatment Can Help Those With Rosacea

Posted on 20 Nov, 2023

Rosacea is a long term inflammatory skin condition that is characterised by redness across your face. Rosacea primarily affects your face, with blushing across your cheeks and nose being the most common areas for it to show up. For many, rosacea can be an uncomfortable and annoying skin condition to deal with. Here at The Laser Treatment Clinic, we recognise this and have a handful of treatments available to help. 

To find out more about our laser treatments for rosacea, keep reading. We will be discussing our treatment options and how they can benefit those who have this skin condition. 

What are the signs of rosacea? 

The early signs of rosacea include redness across the face, as well as your face feeling hot or painful during these flare ups. Rosacea flare ups can last for a few minutes, as the redness comes and goes. 

A burning sensation may accompany the redness, which can cause discomfort during a flare up.

What triggers rosacea?

Rosacea can have many triggers. Common ones include: spicy food, hot drinks, aerobic exercise, and alcohol. It’s important to recognise your triggers when you have rosacea, to avoid and prevent a flare up. 

How laser treatment works for rosacea 

At our clinic we use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment to treat patients with rosacea. IPL therapy works by heating up the target area, which results in your body’s healing system breaking down the blood vessels involved. This heat stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, encouraging cell renewal and healing within the skin.

Vascular laser treatments are usually recommended for those with rosacea, but we can use a combination of laser and non-laser treatments too. This depends on your skin type and what’s the most suitable option for you and your skin.
