REDNESS AND ROSACEA
redness and rosacea
Rosacea is a common chronic cutaneous condition that is characterised by facial flushing which can make the skin appear red and aggravated.
The symptoms of rosacea typically peak from 30-50 years old and tend to affect women more than men.
Regardless, it can be an aesthetic concern for both men and women alike and has previously been challenging to treat.
It is thought sun exposure, hot showers, spicy foods and alcohol may exacerbate rosacea in those who already have it.
As well as recommending avoiding these triggers we can combat your redness and rosacea using:
Laser Genesis now offers the ability to combat rosacea by gently heating the skins dermis and subsequently breaking up dilated capillaries.
This in effect reduces redness, stimulates collagen production and gives the skin an overall more even toned appearance.
This rejuvenation and homogenisation process is effective and doesn’t require downtime or discomfort.
Nd:Yag laser treatment uses a precisely calibrated vascular laser that specifically targets the deeper tissues and longer vascular structures that other laser modalities fail to reach.
The Nd:Yag is very effective for the treatment of rosacea, a reduction in overall skin pigmentation and discolouration. It does this by emitting a wavelength of high energy light that can heat and destroy targeted blood vessels that otherwise increase blood flow to the surface of the skin, making it appear red and flushed.
The body then clears the destroyed vessels through a natural healing process.
The Limelight Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) delivers various wavelengths of light energy to the skin where it is absorbed by the melanin chromophores and haemoglobin found within veins.
This causes photocoagulation within the vessels, destroying them and reducing the effects of rosacea.
The Limelight can therefore target and diminish superficial hyperpigmentation, discolouration and rosacea induced redness.
You can expect improved skin tone, texture and balance following treatment with Limelight.
