Can IPL treat rosacea?

Rosacea can be successfully treated with the use of Intense Pulsed Lights and is a fast and easy way to help reduce the effects.

Rosacea is a skin condition caused by the enlargement of certain facial blood vessels, which results in a flushed appearance of the cheeks and nose.

IPL treats rosacea by focusing on the visible blood vessels of the skin. The heat from the light targets the widened blood vessels and causes them to shrink until their visibility is significantly reduced.

When this procedure is performed, special care is taken to avoid causing damage to the surrounding skin tissue. This procedure may cause slight discomfort, however patients are usually able to undergo the entire procedure without an anaesthetic.

The amount of procedures needed to get the desired results will vary depending on the patient and the severity of the condition.
