Can laser light treat rosacea?
Yes. Light-based rosacea treatment can reduce rosacea redness and “flushing” to reveal clearer, more natural-looking skin in just a few easy treatments, practically pain-free — providing a more permanent result than topical creams.
Light-based rosacea treatment can effectively reduce:
- Rash, redness, and flushing
- Acne-like papules, pustules, and patches
- Rosacea swelling, inflammation, and discomfort
How do light-based treatments address rosacea?
Rosacea treatments use pulses of light to target and treat the blood vessels responsible for the chronic redness that appears on your skin. Once the vessels responsible for the rosacea are treated, the redness and rash can disappear. Best of all, rosacea treatment can provide skin tone improvement by diminishing the appearance of broken blood vessels and acne-like breakouts associated with this common skin condition.
Oral medication and antibiotics for rosacea treatment can have systemic side effects and can take weeks to be effective. Medication-based treatments can also be dangerous for women who are pregnant or nursing. Light-based treatment for rosacea is a targeted remedy that affects only the blood vessels without harming healthy skin so it may be a good alternative to creams and oral medications.
It also works quickly—sessions may take less than 30 minutes, and you may see visible improvement after your very first treatment.
