Rosacea is a common skin condition that often appears between the ages of 30 and 60 and is usually visible on the cheeks, forehead, chin and nose. People with rosacea often find they suffer from facial thread veins as the skin is red and flushed. Unfortunately, rosacea is a chronic condition however, with our medical-grade Lynton IPL treatment we can create a personalised treatment plan to help to get your rosacea under control with reduced flare ups and visible symptoms. People with Rosacea have many facial thread veins which dilate to certain stimuli (eg hot bath or spicy food) and stay open for longer periods of time compared to non-Rosacea sufferers. These thread veins have weaker walls and therefore do not function properly. Intense Pulsed Light treatment has been shown to be very effective in the treatment of Rosacea. It works by a process called photothermolysis. This light therapy selectively destroys the abnormal vessels (thread veins) that cause the Rosacea effect, allowing thicker walled micro vessels to be laid down. We recommend 3 treatments 4-6 weeks apart, and maintenance treatments may be needed.
