Rosacea and Facial Redness

What is Rosacea or global redness 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 peoples aged between 30 – 60.  It is more common amongst people of Celtic descent, although it can affect anyone.  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.

Global redness can also effect any ethnicity, including European, Asian or Indian. This can be treated with laser, LED and a home care plan. 

Laser treatment

How SVH can treat Rosacea and Facial Redness

Both our Halmony Pro XL or  excel V laser can treat this vascular 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. Our medical grade lasers heats the targeted vessel or pigmentation which then becomes eliminated or faded, reduced or softened with one or multiple treatments.  We develop a bespoke treatment plan for your skin ethnicity/colour/age and type. Often 2 types of laser are used with LED and a home care plan (topical and supplements which can be purchased in clinic). 

You will need to have at least 3-6 treatments.  

Is laser treatment safe?

Yes. Laser treatment has been used by health professionals since the 1970s. Both Alma and Cutera lasers are medical grade, state of the art technology made and developed in the USA (Cutera) or Israel (Alma) for FDA approval and a global market.
You may experience initial skin irritation or redness but this will settle within a week or so. We provide safety glasses for you to wear during treatment.
