Rosacea

Light-based rosacea treatment can reduce rosacea redness and “flushing” to reveal clearer, more natural-looking skin in just a few easy treatments, practically pain-free — providing a more permanent result than topical creams.

Light-based rosacea treatment can effectively reduce:

  • Rash, redness, and flushing
  • Acne-like papules, pustules, and patches
  • Rosacea swelling, inflammation, and discomfort

Rosacea treatments use pulses of light to target and treat the blood vessels responsible for the chronic redness that appears on your skin. Once the vessels responsible for the rosacea are treated, the redness and rash can disappear. Best of all, rosacea treatment can provide skin tone improvement by diminishing the appearance of broken blood vessels and acne-like breakouts associated with this common skin condition.

Oral medication and antibiotics for rosacea treatment can have systemic side effects and can take weeks to be effective. Medication-based treatments can also be dangerous for women who are pregnant or nursing. Light-based treatment for rosacea is a targeted remedy that affects only the blood vessels without harming healthy skin, so it may be a good alternative to creams and oral medications.

It also works quickly—sessions may take less than 30 minutes and you may see visible improvement after your very first treatment.

Embrace the advantages of light-based rosacea treatment, including:

  • Fast, easy treatment sessions with little-to-no discomfort
  • Comfortable sessions that can take 30 minutes or less
  • Excellent results with little-to-no recovery time

Light-Based Rosacea Treatment FAQs

About the procedure*

How does it work?

Light-based rosacea treatments use an optimized light device to target and clear the blood vessels under the surface of the skin that are responsible for rosacea. This light energy is absorbed specifically by blood vessels, which shrink and collapse, reducing your rosacea.

What types of symptoms can be treated?

Light-based rosacea treatment can be used to reduce redness, spider veins, and acne-like breakouts that generally occur.

Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

Light-based rosacea treatment can work on many skin types. Your provider will determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment.

What kinds of results can I expect?

You can expect to see a decrease in the visible symptoms associated with rosacea after the very first treatment; however, several treatment sessions may be needed to achieve the best results.

How long does it take?

The procedure can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Does it hurt?

Most people feel minimal discomfort during light-based treatment for rosacea. Your provider can discuss pain management options with you.

How many treatments will I need?

You normally will see some improvement immediately. Depending on the severity of your condition, two or more treatments may be necessary to achieve the best results.

Is there down time?

Most people resume regular activities immediately following the treatment session. Patients usually see mild to moderate redness immediately following treatment, which quickly subsides.
