Considering Laser Treatment for Rosacea?

Rosacea causes

Rosacea is a very serious skin disorder that can cause redness, swelling, bumps, pimples and burst capillaries to appear persistently on your face. Usually people susceptible to this disorder are over 30 and of Celtic origin with fair skin and light eyes. It is thought that Rosacea is caused by a number of factors including genetics and environmental triggers.

Treating Rosacea with Lasers

Laser treatment for Rosacea has been clinically proven to reduce scarring, redness and surface imperfections of the skin. Laser treatment is a highly reputed and recognized procedure for the treatment of the effects of Rosacea. Dermatologists have been effectively treating Rosacea with laser treatment for nearly twenty years. Lasers can be used to treat the dilated vessels, thickened skin and persistent redness caused by this chronic skin disorder.

How Do I know If I Need Laser Treatment?

In order to decide if you should undergo laser treatment for Rosacea you should consider the condition of your skin and the response that you have had to topical treatments and creams. Laser therapy can be expensive, and while most people see excellent results, not everyone is a suitable candidate for this type of treatment. It is very important to consult with a medical professional to help you to make the right decision.

The Costs of Laser Treatment

Laser Treatment for Rosacea can be quite expensive. Prices vary depending on the nature and extent of the treatment required. It is important to have a consultation with an accredited professional, such as a plastic surgeon or dermatologist, in order to determine the exact nature, extent and cost of the treatment required. It is essentially to find a highly skilled and experienced surgeon with an outstanding track record. Cost, while a factor, should not be the only consideration. You do get what you pay for and chosing the cheapeast provider is not necessarily going to get you a high quality result.

How it works on Rosacea

An important step in laser treatment for Rosacea is regular and consistent treatment. Laser treatment requires the use of a laser to treat the top layer of the skin, which is called the epidermis. The laser emits a beam of light over the skin and this light has the ability to resurface the skin and remove imperfections. If you have broken capillaries the laser can remove these broken capillaries completely. The laser encourages the growth and development of collagen deep beneath the surface of the skin in an area called the dermis. Rosacea can cause the skin to thicken and look unsightly, particularly around the nose. Laser treatment can break down thickened areas of skin to create a more natural appearance around your nose.

Preparation and Research

Research online in order to find a professional who specializes in laser treatment for Rosacea. Have a consultation and become familiar with what the process involves, any associated risks and how best to manage your recovery.

The Pain Factor

Laser Treatment for Rosacea can be painful. Everyone perceives pain differently, however, you will be given pain relief for the procedure. You will receive a local anesthesia and be awake for the procedure, or you may elect to go under a general anesthesia and be asleep. There may be some pain in the recovery period, however, you should receive pain relief medication to help you manage this.


It may take a few months for your skin to heal completely and there will be some redness and swelling associated with the procedure. If you have had laser treatment for Rosacea, you will need a recovery period. It is very important to drink plenty of fluids and avoid the direct sunlight until the redness has completely disappeared. You will need to avoid makeup and other irritants and keep your skin carefully moisturized with a high quality product designed for sensitive skin.

What Results Will Laser Treatment for Rosacea Achieve?

Results will vary depending on the extent of your scarring and the severity of your condition. Laser treatment has the potential to remove burst capillaries, dramatically reduce redness and erase lumps. If your skin has thickened in areas, laser therapy can treat this quite effectively. It is important to remain realistic about your condition and remember that there is at present no permanent cure for Rosacea. Most patients will experience a strong improvement, however, it is always possible that your condition may return or worsen after the procedure. The severity of your Rosacea, your lifestyle and your skin type will influence the effectiveness and overall success of your treatment. For people who have tried many other types of therapy and had limited success, laser therapy may just be the right treatment.
