You might wonder why you blush so often, or your skin flushes, or turns red so frequently, especially when you haven’t been out in the sun? Rosacea can easily be mistaken as acne or an allergic reaction. It is where small blood vessels on the face, normally on the nose or cheeks swell and create a flushed look. These enlarged capillaries are permanent; treating rosacea with laser treatments is key to repairing skin cells in order to reduce the symptoms of rosacea and achieve confidence in oneself again.
Mild forms of rosacea can get progressively worse over time if gone untreated.
Symptoms of rosacea can vary widely among patients, but the most common include:
- Skin that flushes or blushes easily
- Persistent facial redness
- Tiny, visible blood vessels called telangiectasias (commonly called “spider veins”)
- Overly sensitive skin that stings from certain skin care and beauty products
- Red bumps and pimples filled with pus
Genesis Laser treatments are a low-riskand non-invasive way to offer long lasting results. It uses multiple wavelengths of light on the surface of the skin to remove visible blood vessels in affected areas. There recovery downtime is minimal, where only some redness, or swelling may be visible for a few hours after. The goal of treatment is to control symptoms and improve the skin’s appearance.
How to attain long-lasting Results
Once you have undergone laser treatments to remove the blood vessels associated with rosacea, it takes a very long time for them to come back. If you then use sunscreen every day, you might not need to have any further laser treatment for another one to two years. Reducing sun exposure is imperative for preventing further blood vessels from developing.
After treatment care
Skin becomes sensitive to sunlight after laser; to maintain the results, proper skin care and protection from the sun is essential. The sun will aggravate the skin by developing more blood vessels which causes the redness. Therefore avoiding the sun and using sun cream with a high SPF is strongly recommended. Also using simple low-irritant skin care products so that skin does not have a reaction helps ensure the laser effects are prolonged.
