Rosacea Laser Treatments

What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a very common and chronic skin condition that mostly affects the area of the face. It exhibits itself by visible appearance of redness, swelling, pimple like acne and dilated blood vessels. It most commonly affects the areas of the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. Rosacea can become a bothersome and very embarrassing condition for many individuals. If left untreated, Rosacea most often will worsen over time. Even though it is mostly an incurable skin condition it can be effectively treated with modern laser technology.

Who Is Affected By Rosacea?rosacea laser services toronto

Millions of people all over the world suffer from this skin condition and may not even know about it. Rosacea typically affects individuals of any skin type and color. However, it is most commonly found in people from the North or West regions of Europe who have a fair complexion. Family history can be a risk factor for developing the condition. Even though Rosacea can strike at any age, it is most prevalent in people over the age of 30.

People who suffer from Rosacea should be aware that certain circumstances can potentially worsen the condition including: heat, exercise, sunlight, exposure to cold, spicy food, alcohol consumption, onset of menopause, psychological stress, and any use of facial steroid creams. Emotional episodes such as stress, anxiety, fear and embarrassment can also bring on Rosacea. Even though more women seem to be affected by Rosacea, men tent to have more severe symptoms.

What Are The Symptoms of Rosacea?

At the beginning Rosacea may seem to appear and disappear over time. However, most often the skin looses its normal color, and soon thereafter enlarged blood vessels and pimples may appear. Rosacea usually requires some kind of regular treatment to lessen the symptoms.

Symptoms of Rosacea can be characterized by skin redness and the appearance of flushing. In extreme cases this condition may look similar to getting sunburned. Other manifestations of Rosacea may include pimples resembling acne and red bumps which can sting or burn. Some individuals can also experience swelling of blood vessels in the areas of their cheeks or the nose. Oftentimes, this unusual redness can be a frequent cause of embarrassment to the affected individuals. Sometimes people may assume that this condition is caused by excessive drinking of alcohol and may further stigmatize the affected individuals.

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition

Rosacea as a chronic condition, can flare-up and reoccur frequently. Your skin may be clear for many weeks, months or even years only to end up symptomatic again. In severe episodes, Rosacea can make your skin thicker or even change the texture of your skin. This usually occurs around the nose area and may cause you to have irritated, very dry and tearful eyes. Sometimes, Rosacea can also attack the areas of the neck, chest, scalp and the ears.

Rosacea and Laser Vein Treatment

At IGBeauty, we use an innovative and non-invasive procedure to target facial veins caused by Rosacea and the IPL (Intense Pulse Light) laser vain treatment is our first choice. This treatment is specifically designed to minimize the appearance of thick varicose veins and very small capillaries. You can expect fast and visible results with very little to no downtime.

How the technology works?

The Lumenis® Laser and IPL Vascular Treatment is a leading-edge procedure that your clinician will use to effectively treat the affected area. This modern technology enables the light and energy source to attack the vascular condition and make it disappear.

Who is an ideal candidate?

Please note that not everybody is a good candidate for the Rosacea laser vain treatment. There are some risks associated with this procedure such as: redness, scarring, swelling or pigmentation change. People suffering from the following conditions should not undergo the Rosacea laser vain treatment: active infections, inflammatory skin conditions, viral, fungal or bacterial diseases and skin cancer. At IGBeauty, we always inform our patients to seek advice from your primary clinician before considering the Rosacea laser vain treatment.

How does the Rosacea laser vain treatment work?

Our modern Lumenis® IPL technology is effective and gentle way to eliminate discoloration, brown spots, and bothersome blood vessels. It will also give you a more youthful, cleaner and redness free complexion.

The Rosacea vain treatment uses a laser that generates heat inside the blood vessels. This heat is able to close the walls of the veins and make them disappear altogether. The modern technology of the IPL laser enables it to be very precise and center on just the selected area leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The IPL comes equipped with a special filter that will only focus on the targeted blood vessels.

Cooling treatment between pulses- ensures pain-free treatment

All of our Luminis technologies are able to ensure that your skin is being cooled between pulses and therefore reducing any chances of possible damage to the skin. At IGBeauty, we take pride in the effectiveness of all of our procedures.
