What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is an inflammatory disorder causing redness, flushing and acne-type breakouts on the face. It generally affects adults between the ages of 30 and 60 with fair skin. About 14 million Americans have this chronic skin condition. Although it’s more common in women, men may develop more apparent signs of the disorder. It’s not a life-threatening condition, but it can affect your appearance and lower one’s self-esteem. Left untreated, rosacea tends to be progressive, which means it gets worse over time and more difficult to manage. The cause of rosacea remains unclear, and it is famously difficult to treat. However, with the newest laser technology, it can generally be successfully improved and controlled.
ICON Laser Treatment for Rosacea with CosMedic LaserMD
With the ICON laser, a series of 3-6 treatments taking 30 to 45 minutes each is performed to seal the layers of tiny vessels that cause the generalized redness and flushing problems. There is no downtime after treatments other than redness that generally dissipates over several hours. Some clients report swelling for a few days.
Again, rosacea is a chronic condition and affected by multiple factors. Proper skin care is essential as well. Speak to us at CosMedic LaserMD so we may develop a treatment regimen for you.
