Rosacea is a skin disease that causes redness and swelling on the face. Rosacea may begin as a tendency to flush or blush easily and progress to persistent redness in the centre of the face that gradually involves the cheeks, forehead and chin. As the disease progresses small capillaries and tiny pimples begin to appear on and around the reddened area.
IPL and Microneedling are two great treatments that can reduce the symptoms of rosacea, although it cannot be cured so maintenance treatments are often necessary to control the condition.
Rosacea treatment options
Dermapen microneedling stimulates the production of collagen thickening and strengthening the epidermal layer to reduce the symptoms of rosacea associated with thin and weakened skin. It can drastically improve broken capillaries and redness, and over time it can improve the rough and bumpy texture of the skin . A course of 3 treatments is recommended for optimal results.
IPL used at specific wavelengths can be very effective in treating the symptoms associated with rosacea like broken capillaries, inflammation and the uneven skin tone. You can notice improvement from the very first treatment. The light therapy is applied to area affected only, usually around the nose and the cheeks.
