Rosacea/Redness

Rosacea/Redness | Fort Lauderdale | Weston FL

Are you blushing or is that rosacea?

A skin disease characterized by redness of the skin, rosacea can cause a flushed appearance, acne-like bumps, or thickening skin that can damage a person’s self-esteem and sometimes cause physical pain. While the cause of rosacea is not yet well understood, nor can rosacea be cured, treatment is typically aimed at reducing the inflammation that is characteristic of the disease, and patients can enjoy years between flare-ups when under a dermatologist’s care. Rosacea is thought to be a genetic condition with certain groups more predisposed to it. Individual triggers vary, but some are related to the weather and the person’s diet. It’s especially important for those with rosacea to protect their skin from the elements and to keep track of the foods they eat in order to avoid future episodes.

In recent years, two aesthetic treatments have earned recognition for their ability to treat the signs of rosacea like redness caused from dilated blood vessels or thickened skin.


IPL

IPL (intense pulsed light), also called a Photofacial, uses targeted wavelengths of light to change the overall appearance of the skin. Proven effective since the 1990s, IPL treats signs of rosacea and is approved by the FDA. Patients typically report significantly decreased redness after just one treatment. While the procedure is relatively simple, patients should look for medical aesthetic practices and practitioners who are well versed in this kind of therapy. It is also important to note that IPL treatment is not a cure for rosacea, but it can diminish its appearance for a lengthy period of time. Re-treatments are most often required to keep the rosacea under control.

Spider Veins

IPL is also an effective treatment for unsightly facial spider veins. IPL works by selectively damaging or destroying small spider veins and small vascular birthmarks. The concentrated pulse of light generates heat and damages the blood vessel walls. The veins shrink and disappear as a result of treatment. IPL penetrates the unwanted vessel but does not damage or scar the surrounding tissue. Two to four treatments may be required depending on the number and size of the lesions.
