Rosacea and Facial Redness

What is Rosaceca and who does it affect?

This is a skin condition that usually causes a persistent redness in the central part of your face – nose, cheeks, forehead and chin.  Small blood vessels on the nose and cheeks can swell and become visible as well.  Many people who have rosacea also develop pimples on their face that resemble acne, however it is not associated with acne as many commonly believe.

It typically affects middle-aged women with fair skin or those with Celtic origins. Typical causes range from genetics and environmental to vascular and inflammatory factors. Overall, it is part of the skin’s immune response that causes these symptoms.

How SVH can treat Rosacea and Facial Redness

Our Excel V laser can treat this skin condition. This laser system uses a high powered green laser to target small blood vessels or pigment cells in the skin. The laser delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is then reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will naturally be redirected to other deeper veins below the skin surface, where they should be. The Excel V laser heats the targeted vessel or pigmentation which then becomes eliminated or faded, reduced or softened with one or multiple treatments.

You will need at least 1-3 treatments.  This treatment can only be done on lighter skin tones.
