Laser Rosacea Treatments

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a chronic, acne-like condition of the facial skin that may affect as many as 13 million Americans, including President Clinton. It typically first appears when people reach their 30s and 40s as a flushing or subtle redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead that comes and goes. If left untreated, Rosacea tends to worsen over time. As the condition progresses, the redness becomes more persistent, bumps and pimples called papules and pustules appear and small dilated blood vessels may become visible. Rosacea is worsened with sunlight and certain foods.

How is Rosacea treated with laser?

At Empathy Skin Clinic we use the latest and most effective lasers in treating Rosacea. The vascular structures which are responsible for causing Rosacea respond to the precise energy level and wavelength of light that is emitted via the laser. The small spot of laser light travels through the skin and is absorbed by the blood within these vessels. The resulting heat coagulates or clots the blood and destroys the function of the vessel. Over time, the vessel is absorbed by the body and disappears from sight. This leads to reduction of the redness and flushing appearance of facial skin.

What other treatments are available for Rosacea?

Until recently, doctors have used creams and antibiotics to treat outbreaks of Rosacea. With advances in laser technology we now have the capability of significantly improving the redness and flushing caused by Rosacea.

How many treatments are needed?

Most patients respond to 3-5 treatments spread over several months, each given 3-4 weeks apart. Each treatment lasts 15-20 minutes and you can resume your daily activities immediately.

What is the treatment like? Is it painful?

A pulse of laser light may feel like a pinch similar to a snapping rubber band. Chilled gel on the skin and other techniques prevent discomfort. The entire procedure is brief and non-invasive - no needles are used at any time. Some patients prefer to use a numbing cream on the face approximately 30 minutes prior, although this is seldom needed.

What preparations must I take?

There are no changes in activities, before or after treatment. Prior to and following any type of laser treatment, you must limit your exposure to the sun; treatment should not be performed on tanned skin or active Rosacea outbreaks.

How much does it cost?

Prices vary for each patient depending on the type of laser procedure, area of the body to be treated, and the number of treatments needed. We strive to offer the LOWEST PRICES for all cosmetic laser procedures as compared to other clinics . Our affordable prices and financing plans assure that nearly everyone can have the new look they have always wanted.
