What Is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a common skin disease that causes redness and swelling on the face. Often referred to as "adult acne,", rosacea may begin as a flush or blush look. It can then progress to persistent redness in the center of the face that may gradually involve the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose.
As the disease progresses, small blood vessels and tiny pimples begin to appear on and around the reddened area; however, unlike acne, there are no blackheads.
Rosacea treatments are aimed to control the intensity of this disorder. The treatments will reduce the appearance of the red, irritated, acne-like breakouts brought on by rosacea.
Rosacea Treatment Options
We use a vascular laser treatment for rosacea. During treatment, heat from the laser causes damaged blood vessels under the skin to collapse and disappear. The procedure's duration is about 15 to 30 minutes per session. Treatments generally cover the entire face.
Typically, multiple treatments are needed. Because patients may need several days for recovery from bruising, pain, redness, or swelling that may follow laser treatments, the treatments are typically scheduled at 4-to-6-week intervals.
With rosacea, the thickening of the skin (excess tissue) usually is not improved with the laser. However, laser resurfacing and microdermabrasion are good combination treatments.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin treatment that involves removal of dead and damaged skin cells. The microdermabrasion handpiece emits a stream of crystals across the skin, gently exfoliating the skin’s surface.
How Much Do Rosacea Treatments Cost?
The exact cost of your rosacea treatment will depend on the type of treatment chosen. The price will also vary based on the number of treatment sessions required.
