What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a common skin disorder that presents as red inflamed looking areas on your skin and although it can be found in people of all ages, it does tend to occur more frequently on more mature skin. It can also be triggered from external factors such as environmental damage. Rosacea is usually apparent due to redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead, Small, visible blood vessels on the face, bumps, or pimples and sometimes watery or irritated eyes can all be signifiers of this condition.
Thankfully Rosacea can be controlled with IPL. IPL has two actions that help in Rosacea. Firstly, red thread veins absorb the light energy, this makes them hot. This controlled method of heat damage encourages the body to reabsorb them, thus improving the appearance. Secondly the light energy warms the collagen fibres in the skin this stimulates new collagen and collagen remodeling, this improves the support of the small blood vessels in the treatment area which helps to delay the development of further red thread veins.
IPL is very effective at treating the following skin concerns
Fine lines and wrinkles
Rough skin texture
