Treatment for Flushed Facial Redness
The latest and most effective treatment available for rosacea is a procedure called intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial laser therapy. Using intense pulsed light, a dermatologist can target specific problem areas at various levels of skin tissue, such as pigmentation, broken facial blood vessels, and damaged skin. An IPL session lasts as little as half an hour and does not require recovery time the way other cosmetic procedures might. Most patients see improved results within one session. Depending on the specific conditions of a patient’s skin, s/he may need only three sessions to eliminate the flushed facial redness of rosacea.
The IPL laser therapy is often recommended because it is not only safe and effective, but it also yields results that last! Many patients enjoy the long-lasting effects of IPL for years, particularly if they take good care of their skin. Unlike other procedures, IPL is also a preferred option because it does not cause serious side effects. In most cases, patients may experience some swelling and pinkness to the skin following an IPL session, but it usually disappears in a matter of hours.
