Laser Treatment for Rosacea.

Rosacea is a common problem that often causes redness of the face, flushing, prominent blood vessels and sometimes lumps in the skin. We have been getting great results with our NdYAG Laser to treat this troublesome condition.

What Should I Look For?

Rosacea can vary substantially from one individual to another, and in most cases some rather than all of the potential signs and symptoms appear. Rosacea always includes at least one of the following primary signs, and various secondary signs and symptoms may also develop. It can affect both men and women (more common in women).

Primary Signs of Rosacea:

  • Flushing
    Many people with rosacea have a history of frequent blushing or flushing. This facial redness may come and go, and is often the earliest sign of the disorder.
  • Persistent Redness
    Persistent facial redness is the most common individual sign of rosacea, and may resemble a blush or sunburn that does not go away.
  • Bumps and Pimples
    Small red solid bumps or pus-filled pimples often develop. While these may resemble acne, blackheads are absent and burning or stinging may occur.
  • Visible Blood Vessels
    In many people with rosacea, small blood vessels become visible on the skin.

How does Laser Treatment for Rosacea work?

The NdYAG laser is effective at shrinking the overactive, dilated blood vessels in Rosacea. It’s a pain-free, quick treatment with no side effects. Air-cooling is used, but local anaesthetic creams are not needed. There is no burning of the skin surface.

What is the cost of Laser Treatment for Rosacea?

It depends upon the extent and exactly what is required, but the cost will be between $50-$150 per session. Several sessions may be required for best results. Consult fees may also apply.
