How IPL/Laser Works?
  • It is believed that the light from IPL and pulse dye Lasers have two actions that help in Rosacea.
  • Firstly, red thread veins absorb the light energy, which makes them hot. This damage encourages the body to reabsorb the veins, improving and fading their appearance.
  • Secondly, the light energy warms the collagen fibres in the skin. This stimulates new collagen and collagen remodelling, which improves the support of the small blood vessels and helps to delay the development of more thread veins.
  • The heated/dried blood then gets cleared away by the white blood cells in a process called phagocytosis.
  • By treating the blood vessels the vascular response is diminished.

 More  Information 

How does Rosacea treatment work?

  • We use Gold standard Laser & Light systems to treat Rosacea.
  • These Light based systems deliver sufficient energy to the vessels in order to thermo coagulate the vessel with minimal damage to the surrounding skin.
  • Following the treatment, the damage vessels are absorbed by the body and the skin appears less red.
  • IPLs and pulsed dye lasers are excellent to use on diffused redness as they are superficial.
Techniques We Use
  • Pulse Stacking, this involves stacking the energies. First shot oxyhemoglobin is converted into methemoglobin and metahemoglobin will be absorbed better by a second shot. This is a more effective treatment method.
  • Paintbrush feathering techniques using Lasers delivering up to 12000 pulses to whole face per treatment.

Combination Approach to treat Rosacea:

  • We will combine the following with our Laser/IPL treatment to further improve your skin and enhance the results from treatment.

  • We will look at your lifestyle, any stressful situations can worsen Rosacea.
  • The type of work you do, if you’re working outdoors without sun protection you can develop Rosacea.
