ROSACEA & VASCULAR LESSIONS REMOVAL
As many as seventy-million North Americans have undesirable redness and/or sun-damaged skin. Sun exposure, alcohol, medication, stress, and aging, often worsen the appearance of rosacea.
Rosacea is a common skin condition characterized by redness and flushing skin. Our IPL treatments control flushing and, in many cases, reduce the need for topical cortisone creams and antibiotics.
Pulses of light target unwanted vessels within your skin. The light delivered causes them to slowly disappear through your body’s natural healing process.
How should I prepare for the treatment?
Avoid tanning or significant sun exposure of the areas to be treated. Also avoid the use of photosensitizing medications (such as tetracycline or doxycycline) before a treatment, as this may exaggerate the skin response to treatment. It is also recommended to discontinue skin care products (such as Retin-A or Salicylic Acid) one week prior to treatment as this may make your skin more sensitive to the treatment
How soon should I expect results?
Most patients start to see some results after the first treatment. While many patients see great results after the first session, it still takes 2-4 treatments to obtain the results you desire.
What should I avoid after the treatment?
Sun exposure and tanning beds should be avoided post treatment, the use of mechanical exfoliants or harsh products such as retinol creams or glycolic acid creams, and excessive heat such as sauna or hot tubes immediately after treatment.
What will my skin look like immediately after a treatment?
The skin may have a pink/red appearance (erythema) post treatment for 24-48 hours. Sun spots or hyperpigmentation may appear to be darker. This darkness is the hyperpigmentation or sun damage surfacing. Overall the skin may look and feel tight.
