Treatment for Rosacea with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) at our Oxfordshire therapy rooms
Rosacea is a skin condition that’s usually found on the facial skin. It ranges in severity – some people have a mild version of rosacea that causes slight redness and isn’t too problematic, while other people can be quite seriously affected with thickened skin and areas that have become enlarged.
If you have Radio Frequency rosacea treatment with us, you’ll need to be diagnosed by a doctor before we can treat you. It affects up to one in ten people to some degree and is most common in fair-skinned women although men can also have it.
There isn’t a complete cure for rosacea, but it can be treated so that the symptoms are more manageable. We use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) in our skin clinic at Bare Essentials, as we find it to be a really effective way of calming the symptoms of rosacea and improving the condition of your skin. It works by destroying the protein in the walls of the blood vessels in the affected areas, causing the vessels to gradually disappear after treatment.
Most of the people we treat with the IPL for rosacea say that they notice an improvement in their skin condition very quickly. The dilated blood vessels and redness are visibly reduced after just one or two treatments. Some people notice minor side effects after a treatment, although these affect everyone. The temporary side effects include slight redness, swelling, bruising, and skin lightening – but these should disappear fairly quickly.
If you’d like to find out more about how we can help you manage your rosacea, come into our beauty salon in West Hagbourne, and we’ll talk you through your treatment options as well as a few lifestyle changes that can help you to manage the symptoms and improve the results of your treatment (things like changes to your diet and avoiding extreme temperatures). Although everyone is different, we usually advise a session every two to three weeks, and four to six sessions overall for best results.
