Rosacea is categorized as chronic inflammation of the skin on the face and can occur at any age. The irritation and inflammation from Rosacea is usually common around the nose and chin area but can also affect the cheeks and forehead as well. Rosacea can be controlled, but can re-occur with flare-ups throughout one’s life.
Patients with Rosacea often complain that their skin feels prickly and appears flushed. They tend to have predominant veins or broken capillaries in the affected areas, especially around the nose and chin. If left untreated, the condition will generally worsen and become more irritated. It occurs when the vessels start multiplying and becoming larger on the nose. In extreme cases, it can lead to great discomfort and distortion of the nose making it quite bulbous and discolored.
IPL (intense pulsed light) also known as Photo Facial & Photorejuvenation treatments will target both the veins and the redness in the affected areas. IPL treatments will cauterize the veins, helping to minimize bumps as well as relieve the redness that is in the skin. Generally treatments are done every three weeks until the Rosacea is under control. When you experience a flare up of Rosacea, it is recommended that you have an IPL treatment as soon as possible.
