Rosacea is a skin condition that causes the face to appear flushed and red due to visible blood vessels. It can even cause small, pus-filled bumps. An overactive immune system, genetics, and other environmental factors such as extreme temperatures or intense sun or wind may cause it.
Unfortunately, there are no cures for rosacea, but there are treatment options. One of the most innovative and effective treatments is intense pulsed light (IPL). IPL uses light and specific wavelengths to treat the redness and bumps caused by rosacea.

How Does IPL Work?
IPL utilizes a broad spectrum of controlled light and specific wavelengths, which are then absorbed by the targeted cells. The light energy emitted from the tool is then converted into heat energy, damaging the cells. In this case, it would be the blood vessels that are causing the redness. When the cells are damaged, the body is forced to produce new, healthy skin, causing the skin to appear brighter and skin tone even.
What Are the Benefits of IPL for Rosacea?
If you’re interested in IPL treatment, you’ll be pleased to know there are many advantages to patients. Following the treatment, patients may experience:
- Reduced appearance of blood vessels and redness
- Less irritation of the skin
- Clearer skin
- Enhanced skin tone and texture
- Non-invasive and reduced downtime
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
For those considering IPL, it is recommended to receive between three and five treatments for those with moderate rosacea to achieve the best results. This may vary from patient to patient. You can get personalized advice based on your needs by speaking with one of the specialists at AesthetiSpa Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center.
