Rosacea treatment – IPL
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition which expresses itself in redness on the face and sometimes on the neck and chest. The exact cause of Rosacea is yet unknown and many who are affected by it are unaware of their condition.
Rosacea can be effectively treated using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL uses controlled light in specific wavelengths to alleviate the inflammation, redness, pimples and uneven skin tones caused by the condition. IPL offers a gentle, long-lasting solution for those suffering from Rosacea by providing a gradual and natural improvement to the skin’s appearance.
What is it?
Your physician can now treat your Rosacea symptoms and ensure great looking skin, while treating not only the redness and flushing, but also removing skin imperfections and stimulating collagen and elastic fibre production. Optima™ Rosacea treatment uses Lumenis’ IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology with OPT™ to gently target the vascular condition.
The technology behind Optima™ IPL
The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology allows treatment of Rosacea symptoms like flushing, redness and visible blood vessels, as well as improving the overall appearance of your skin. IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™) enables your clinician to safely customise the treatment according to your skin type, condition severity, and desired results. Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat inside the blood vessels, which closes the vessels’ walls, eventually causes them to disappear.
Why Optima™ IPL for Rosacea?
– Tones down redness, flushing, and visible small blood vessels
– A gentle treatment which improves overall skin appearance
– Fast treatment with no downtime
Just before treatment, the doctor will apply a thin layer of clear gel onto the treatment area. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes. You may experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
When will I see results?
The Optima™ IPL Rosacea treatment tones down redness, flushing, and visible small blood vessels, over a series of treatments, typically spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
What can I expect after treatment?
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some additional redness, depending on your customised treatment settings. The redness will usually fade away within a day or two. In most cases, makeup may be immediately applied, and daily activities can be resumed the very same day. You will be asked by your Physician to stay out from the sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sun screen till the next planned session.
