Rosacea is a skin condition that effects adult men and woman to varying severities. It is more common in Caucasian skin types, particularly those with Celtic ancestry.
The condition causes redness in the face and sometimes the neck and chest too. Flushing can occur whereby the face feels uncomfortably hot whilst the blood vessels dilate. There are certain lifestyle changes that can help, wearing sun cream daily and creams and antibiotics to reduce blood flow to the skin, as well as avoiding ‘triggers’. If you are looking for something to help you further to a better degree, then a course of IPL will destroy the blood vessels close to the surface that are causing the issue. Making your Rosacea more manageable.
At your assessment the consultant will decide on the most appropriate course of treatment. Those with Rosacea suffer with highly sensitive skin, therefore it is important that products and treatment plan are suitable. For IPL as skin test is always carried out prior to treatment to determine suitability.
Most clients will benefit from a course of M22 IPL treatment from Lumenis. This conducted with a signature technique allows for heat to distribute into the skin, enough to destroy the redness (broken capillaries) but not enough to harm the surrounding skin. The skin will be left slightly flushed after the treatment. Many clients return to work post treatment after a cooling face cloth. Nutritional guidance may be suggested to support your treatment.
