Treating Rosacea with ipl laser
There are a number of different lasers that can be used to treat Rosacea. A few of these include the pulsed-dye laser, IPL, CO2 and the KTP laser among others. Laser treatment is fast becoming the recognised way to treat the signs and symptoms of Rosacea. Using laser to treat Rosacea does not only get rid of the uneven skin tone and blushing but also revitalises the skin so it appears and feels soft to the touch.
Laser treatment helps to:

- Treat the reddening that occurs from the skin disorder
- Destroy the inflamed blood vessels without damaging the surrounding skin
Laser Rosacea treatment can effectively remove years of damage from the surface of the skin by enhancing the skin’s overall appearance. While laser Rosacea treatment in most cases reduces the symptoms significantly, more than one session is normally required in order to get the best results. One of the benefits of laser treatment for Rosacea is the fact that results are usually evident from the first treatment and in many cases the improved skin appearance is permanent.
After the conclusion of the laser therapy, patients can encounter several different scenarios. One very common consequence of the treatment is light bruising, which persists for around a week. Other effects include puffiness, inflammation and discomfort. These will be felt immediately after the treatment, but will only last for few days.
