Treatment for Rosacea with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment at our Oxfordshire therapy rooms
Rosacea is a skin condition, usually long term, which mainly affects the face. It can range from redness to more severe cases where the skin becomes thickened and enlarged.
Rosacea most commonly affects fair-skinned people from northern Europe and is estimated to affect up to 1 in 10 people. Rosacea affects twice as many women as men, although it is usually more serious in men. The symptoms usually begin between the ages of 30 and 50. There is no cure, but treatments are possible. One treatment involves the use of laser (Intense Pulsed Laser or IPL) to reduce reddening.
Even though there is no permanent cure, most patients notice a good reduction in dilated blood vessels and redness after only one or two treatments. Side effects from IPL are temporary and may include redness, swelling, bruising, and skin lightening.
Becky will also advise on other factors that can help with treatment, including avoiding known triggers such as excessively greasy food and extreme temperatures.
Rosacea must be treated first before we can treat the thread veins.
Treatments are usually every 2-3 weeks & 4-6 treatments are usually needed.
