Rosacea Overview

Rosacea is a common skin disease. It often begins with a tendency to blush or flush more easily than other people. The redness can slowly spread beyond the nose and cheeks to the forehead and chin. Even the ears, chest, and back can be red all the time. Rosacea can cause more than redness. There are so many signs and symptoms that rosacea has four subtypes:

Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea: Redness, flushing, visible blood vessels. Papulopustular rosacea: Redness, swelling, and acne-like breakouts. Phymatous rosacea: Skin thickens and has a bumpy texture. Ocular rosacea: Eyes red and irritated, eyelids can be swollen, and person may have what looks like a sty.

Treatments

EXCEL V LASER FOR REDS, BROWNS AND BLUES

Excel V is the most advanced aesthetic technology that combines two powerfully precise lasers to target and eliminate vascular concerns (redness/unsightly veins) and benign pigmented lesions (age spots, sun spots, discoloration) on the face and body.

Highlights:
» Treats rosacea, facial and leg veins, age/brown spots, and acne scars.
» Most treatment areas require only one or two treatment sessions, but will vary based on the condition.
» Treatments feel like a rubber band snap. Depending on the treatment, a cooled treatment tip will be in contact with the skin to protect and provide comfort during the procedure.
» Redness and/or swelling can be expected following the treatment and will resolve within a few days.
» Brown spots will darken and slough off within 2 weeks.
