What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that can begin with redness in the face similar to flushing or blushing. When rosacea occurs over a long period of time, it can cause persistent redness, pimples, and visible blood vessels in the center of the face. It’s easily confused with other skin conditions, such as acne and sunburn.
The exact cause of rosacea is a mystery, but researchers believe that heredity and environmental factors play a role. Rosacea can also affect the neck, ears, chest, and back. It can be treated most effectively in its early stages, but the worse it gets, the more difficult it can be to address.
Our Rosacea Laser Treatment Options
Laser treatment for rosacea is effective against certain symptoms of rosacea, including dilated blood vessels, persistent or recurring redness, thickening of the skin, flushing, and acne-like breakouts. Although there is no cure for rosacea, laser treatment can help to manage its visible effects and restore your self-esteem.
Broadband light treatments (BBL) like IPL (intense pulsed light) can help treat dilated blood vessels and recurring redness. An erbium resurfacing laser can be used to treat skin thickening by shaving away excess tissue and stimulating the production of collagen to replace the damaged skin and smooth out skin tone.
“I highly recommend Evolve. I had my first BBL, treatment and it was fantastic! The staff are very thorough and knowledgeable. They walked me through every step during the procedure and even checked in with me several days later. I am very happy with my experience and results!”
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Laser Treatment Right for Me?
Laser treatments aren’t right for everyone. When you come to Evolve for your consultation, we’ll take a look at your medical history, evaluate your skin, and listen to your concerns before determining the best treatment for rosacea and developing your highly effective rosacea treatment plan. Topical therapy is also an option for rosacea
Does Laser Treatment for Rosacea Hurt?
Most laser treatments, including those for rosacea, involve minimal pain and discomfort. Many patients compare the feeling to having a rubber band snapped against your skin. Like with most medical skin care treatments, it’s important to see a trained medical professional, like our staff at Evolve, for safe and effective results.
Does BBL for Rosacea Have Downtime?
Laser treatments have minimal side effects, and most patients resume normal activities the very same day. With that said, you may experience some redness and swelling. This usually wears off within about a day.
When Will I See Results?
Everyone responds to treatment differently, depending on the severity of your concerns, your skin type, and everything else that makes your skin unique. BBL laser therapy for rosacea typically takes multiple treatments in order to see results.
