By using VBeam Perfecta laser treatment, we can effectively reduce and even eliminate the diffuse redness and small blood vessels of rosacea. Beginning as a tendency to flush or blush easily, rosacea often progresses to persistent redness in the center of the face, involving the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. As the disease progresses, small blood vessels and tiny red bumps begin to appear on or around the reddened area.
Laser treatment for rosacea is very similar to laser vein treatment, and involves the tracing of blood vessels with a second passing of the laser to treat diffuse redness. Most patients love the results of laser rosacea treatment, and ongoing preventative treatment with topical gels and trigger-avoidance can provide long-lasting results.
It is recommended to avoid sun exposure before and throughout treatment to maximize results. A sunblock of SPF 30 or higher should be worn daily during this time.
