If you struggle with rosacea, you’ve likely tried every over-the-counter skincare product available to find some relief from the constant redness flushing your cheeks. Unfortunately, these products may not be cutting it for you.
If you’re still experiencing skin redness, irritated raised bumps or pimples, and visible blood vessels, you may want to consider pulsed light therapy (or photorejuvenation) treatments. This unique treatment by a certified dermatologist could provide you with the clear skin you’ve always desired.
How IPL Photorejuvenation Works
IPL treatments have been used over the last few years to improve the appearance of the skin. It is often used to treat skin issues, such as sun spots, broken capillaries, melasma, acne, and rosacea.
The non-invasive photorejuvenation procedure directs high-intensity pulses of light onto the targeted areas of the skin. These light waves hit the hemoglobin in your blood vessels as well as the pigment in the skin and activate your body’s natural healing response to repair the damaged tissue. New skin cells develop in the treated area, resulting in a more even skin tone.
Benefits of IPL Photorejuvenation Treatment for Rosacea
Women and men dealing with rosacea often get IPL photofacials to find relief from their facial redness, prominent blood vessels, and other rosacea symptoms. You, too, could enjoy the following benefits from photofacial treatments:
- Reduced redness in the cheeks and chin
- Elimination of bumps and acne
- Faded appearance of blood vessels
- An even, smooth complexion
- Reduction in sun damage and brown spots
In addition to offering so many benefits, photorejuvenation can be used on all skin types, so everyone can enjoy the power of this treatment.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
Many people have seen positive results after just one round of treatment. However, to achieve optimal results, it’s recommended that you receive 3-5 treatments. These appointments will occur every 4-6 weeks. After this time, you will only need treatment once a year to maintain your desired results.
Will You Experience Any Side Effects From the Skin Treatment?
It is not uncommon to have a bit of redness, soreness, bruising, or stinging right after the treatment. However, the discomfort is minimal, and the side effects wear off quickly — many people who receive photorejuvenation treatment for their rosacea return to their normal activities right after the procedure.
