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 a cosmetic concern for both men and women alike and has previously been challenging to treat.

It is thought sun exposure, hot temperatures, 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

Laser Genesis now offers the ability to combat rosacea by gently heating the layers of the skin found just beneath its surface including dilated capillaries. This in effect reduces redness, stimulates collagen production and gives the skin a more even appearance. This treatment 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 most effective for the treatment of rosacea, 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 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, eliminating them permanently.


Limelight Laser

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 effective method causes photocoagulation within the vessels, destroying them and reducing the effects of rosacea.

Limelight can ultimately target and diminish superficial hyperpigmentation, discolouration and rosacea induced redness improving skin tone, texture and balance.
