IPL Rosacea Treatment

Does your face turn red just after you sip one glass of wine? Are you getting abnormal inflammation even after enjoying a good shower?

Rosacea seems to be a condition that appears immediately after you are exposed to a reaction. It is quite similar to sunburn and may show up as a red face. This condition affects nearly 10% of adults and is quite common between the ages of 30 and 60 years old. It may have a negative impact on your professional and social life.

IPL treatment can create a big difference in your skin’s redness. As every patient is different, so is the treatment plan. It is suggested to book an initial consultation at the clinic so your case can be evaluated and discussed in detail and the treatment options available for you.

The Procedure

  • Prior To Treatment

    Patients should avoid sun exposure and sunbeds for four weeks prior to the IPL Rosacea Light Treatment, as this could cause issues with the IPL light’s ability to target darker skin pigmentation. Should you be on any medication that could affect skin photo sensitivity, such as antibiotics, it is imperative that you inform your health care provider ahead of time and stop the medication (upon the advice of a medical professional). Patients should avoid Retinoids and Vitamin C, which increase skin sensitivity. Speak to your doctor prior to stopping any medication.

  • Treatment

    After cleasing the skin, a thin layer of IPL Gel is applied to the area. Your IPL Practitioner will use a handheld device to deliver IPL light therapy to the areas affected by Rosacea. During the procedure, you may feel a slight pinching sensation,or warm feeling.

  • What To Expect

    After the treatment the treated area will look slightly red or pink. This usually lasts for around 6 to 8 hours. Patients may also experience a warm sensation on the skin the following day. This feeling is described as like having a mild sunburn. There are cooling solutions available to fight the symptom, such as a cool pack.

  • After Treatment

    It is advised to avoid makeup for the first 24 hours. It is also always advised to avoid direct sun exposure or sunbeds after any laser treatment, for a minimum of 2 - 4 weeks. Patients are advised to use an SPF of 30/50 every day and reapply where possible. Should you be in direct sunlight, ensure you take precautions, such as a hat and sun protection cream. Patients should avoid anything that could create heat for 48 hours after treatment, such as saunas and gyms.

Before & After

Rosacea IPL FAQ

  • Facial redness and broken veins of Rosacea are treated with intense pulse Light or Pulse Dye Laser. These deliver bright light to broken vessels, thus enabling them to cure and disappear.
  • People with this ailment develop redness and pimples on the nose, cheeks and forehead. It usually begins in the second or third phase of life and women are more affected than men.

You have to avoid extensive exposure to direct sunlight on your face before and during the treatment. The clinician may perform a patch test to better understand your skin reaction. The entire affected area will be treated. You will feel warm sensation during the treatment and your face will turn red for some time. However, there are cooling solutions available to fight the symptom.

Patients who are sensitive to light should avoid this treatment. The effects associated with it are unknown for pregnancy and as such, it is safe not to undergo this therapy when you are expecting. You should also avoid the process if you have tanned or sun burnt skin.

I have gone through several cosmetic treatments at the Fiore Aesthetics, all treatments were done professionally and proper advice was provided before the procedure. Results are great and one can see the difference, plus a very pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommended!
