People with rosacea no longer have to suffer with the blazing red skin and sometimes painful outbreaks. Rosacea can be effectively treated using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL uses controlled light in specific wavelengths to alleviate the inflammation, redness, pimples and uneven skin tones caused by the condition. IPL offers a gentle, long-lasting solution for those suffering from Rosacea by providing a gradual and natural improvement to the skin’s appearance.
Intense Pulsed Light, IPL, is a safe and effective option for controlling the signs and symptoms of rosacea. IPL targets both redness and brown hyperpigmentation. You will see overall improvement in skin tone. IPL will penetrate the skin and target the capillaries that dilate with rosacea.
The IPL procedure removes facial superficial vessels and as a result dramatically decreases or completely eliminates facial redness. The vascular components of Rosacea can vary from flushing to telangiectasias that can have different densities and depths. With a choice of multiple vascular cut-off filters and unique pulse sequencing, Lumenis’ IPL with OPT™ can coagulate each sub-type of capillaries, reducing the redness and simultaneously triggering neocollagenesis which limits the recurrence of the condition. We recommend a series of 3 treatments for best results.
