If you’re looking for a way to reduce redness and inflamed skin resulting from rosacea, laser skin rejuvenation for rosacea in London can help to de-stress and calm your skin.
As experts in skincare and laser treatments, our practitioners at Skin Perfection are experienced in providing rosacea treatment in London. We’ll help design a safe and effective treatment plan to reduce symptoms of rosacea such as facial redness, spots and visible blood vessels.
What is rosacea?
Rosacea is a long-term skin condition that affects the face by causing flushing, blushing and small visible blood vessels. It may also create small bumps or pus-filled spots that look similar to acne. You’re most likely to develop rosacea on the chin, cheeks, nose and forehead.
Who is affected by rosacea?
It predominantly affects women with light or fair skin. However, men who are impacted by rosacea can experience more severe symptoms. Rosacea can start at any age, but most commonly appears in young adults.
While there are currently no permanent solutions to alleviating rosacea, treatment – including laser rosacea treatments – can help bring symptoms under control. This includes reducing skin redness and signs of small blood vessels.
What causes rosacea flare ups?
Rosacea increases the sensitivity of your skin, which means there are a number of factors that can act as triggers. What causes a flare up can be different for everyone.
The most common triggers include sun exposure and hairspray. Other causes can include stress, heat, spicy foods and alcohol. Certain skincare products or medication can also have an adverse effect on your rosacea.
Understanding what triggers your flare ups is important in helping to find an effective rosacea treatment. Without this, repeated flushing can, in some cases, cause skin to become permanently red and make rosacea treatments less effective.
What type of Laser treatments are best for treating rosacea?
Lasers can be an effective way to treat rosacea. During your free consultation at our London skin clinic, we’ll discuss with you what laser treatment will work best for you.
Your treatment plan may include one of, or a combination of, the following rosacea treatments:
Laser photo facial treatments
Regular IPL or Intense pulsed light laser treatment only focuses on targeting a single area for improvement, such as laser hair removal or laser tattoo removal.
Laser photo facials, on the other hand, are a form of IPL laser treatment suitable for targeting various skin conditions including rosacea, persistent redness and severe inflammation.
LED light therapy
Dermalux LED Phototherapy is a pain-free treatment that harnesses pure light energy to help trigger and accelerate the skin’s natural repair process. It can be used as an individual treatment, or as a top-up to enhance the results of another treatment. LED light therapy is effective at helping to reduce redness and inflammation typically associated with rosacea.
Here at Skin Perfection, we have skin peels suitable for various skin types and conditions. Skin peels can be an effective way to boost the effects of your laser treatment with minimal downtime.
Facial peels work by exfoliating and removing the top layer of dead or damaged skin. By penetrating the top layer of skin, peels can significantly reduce the symptoms of skin conditions such as rosacea, acne and redness.
What can I expect during my rosacea treatment?
Generally, we recommended a combination of laser treatments and skin peels to help reduce your symptoms of rosacea. This will be discussed with you during your skin health check and consultation.
Below are some frequently asked questions about rosacea treatment:
How many treatment sessions will I need?
Usually, you’ll have a minimum of four rosacea treatment sessions (laser treatment combined with skin peel). With rosacea, we recommend a follow-up treatment session every two months to help maintain your results. The results you achieve will depend on the maintenance needed. This will be different for every individual.
Will I need a patch test?
To ensure you’re suitable for your rosacea treatment, a patch test will be required 24-48 hours before starting treatment. This is to identify any potential allergies, sensitivities or adverse reactions.
How long will my rosacea treatment take?
The duration of your treatment will be 30-90 minutes. This will depend on the course of treatments recommended to you by our practitioners.
Is there any downtime?
Downtime following your rosacea treatment is minimal and you should be able to return to your normal activities straight away. You may experience some slight redness following your treatment.
