Have you been diagnosed with rosacea? The redness in the face, the bumps, the thick, swollen skin, the embarrassment, the discomfort – when you have a rosacea breakout, you may not even want to leave the house. Is there anything that can be done about rosacea? Yes, there is! Read on for treatment options available at AesthetiSpa Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center.
What Is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a very common condition, affecting about 1 in 20 Americans. It tends to run in families, and if you have fair skin you have a higher risk. It isn’t exactly known what causes rosacea and there is no cure, but there are treatments to help relieve and manage symptoms. If it is left untreated it can get worse over time.
At AesthetiSpa Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center, there are many different options for rosacea treatment:
- Excel® V Laser. This treatment uses a hand piece that is held against the skin, which emits a laser light to break up skin pigments and treat blood vessels. It only takes about 30 minutes, there is little downtime afterward, and there is a built-in cooling feature for the patient’s comfort.
- Laser Genesis®. In this treatment, the skin is warmed, which stimulates the production of collagen. New collagen helps the skin to have a rejuvenated appearance. It can help to treat the dilated capillaries on the face that make skin look red.
- Intense pulsed light (IPL). In this treatment, IPL is used to stimulate new skin cells to be produced, which not only removes damaged, red skin, but can also help to make skin look younger and refreshed.
- Hydrafacial. In a Hydrafacial, the skin is exfoliated and hydrated to remove dead skin cells and imperfections. A nourishing serum is chosen just for your skin needs for a treatment without discomfort or downtime.
