Introduction to rosacea
Over 45 million people across the globe are affected by rosacea. There are various forms that rosacea can take, whether that is redness, blushing or raised spots. It can also appear on various parts of the body, but the most common area is the face – cheeks, nose and around the eyes. There are also many contributing factors which cause rosacea: diet, exercise and also hereditary factors.
Up until recently, rosacea was believed to only affect those of white ethnicity, but it has since been proven that patients of colour are also prone to this condition.
What treatment is available?
At PHI Clinic, we have the gold standard device for reducing redness in the skin. The VBeam is a powerful laser that delivers long, intense pulses to the epidermis in order to coagulate the blood and quarterise broken vessels. A course of treatment is needed to sufficiently reduce redness, though some patients have found that treatment has cleared the issue completely. It is entirely dependent on the individual and how well they take to treatment.
How many session will I need, and how far apart can I have them?
Typically, a patient having this treatment will have a course of around 6-8 sessions, 4-6 weeks apart.
Am I a suitable candidate?
Patients who suffer with redness, rosacea or vascular issues are ideal candidates for this treatment. At PHI Clinic, we can treat skin types 1-6 with the laser.
Who will perform the treatment?
Our team of highly trained Aesthetic Therapists, Jodie Retallick, Jenna Staal and Spirithoula Koukoufikis, perform this treatment.
What areas can be treated?
The most common area is the face and chest, though other areas can be treated.
Is there any downtime?
Patients may see some slight redness in the treated area, but this should not persist long after treatment. Patients undergoing laser treatment are always advised to protect their skin from the sun and to wear a good sun block.
