Rosacea is often described as the "acne that isn't really acne”. The skin overreacts to changes in temperature and to various chemicals that cause itching, redness, and changes in texture. Facial burning and stinging are also commonly reported by many rosacea clients.
PURE uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) PhotoFacials technology to help minimize the embarrassing flushing or facial and neck redness associated with rosacea. IPL PhotoFacials is a state of the art procedure also effective in reducing the appearance of sun and age spots, brown pigmented legions, and broken capillaries; reduce fine lines and wrinkles, even skin tone, reduce pore size, and clear sun damage.
IPL Rosacea treatment is able to treat facial blood vessels of different sizes, depths and thickness, effectively reducing the side-effects of rosacea.
Intense Pulsed Light therapy uses multiple wavelengths of light to treat dilated blood vessels in the face. The vascular structures which are responsible for causing rosacea respond to the precise energy level and wavelength of light that is emitted via the laser. The small spot of laser light travels through the skin and is absorbed by the blood within these vessels. The resulting heat coagulates or clots the blood and destroys the function of the vessel. Over time, the vessel is absorbed by the body and disappears from sight. This leads to reduction of the redness and flushing appearance of facial skin.
IPL therapy takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes and is typically performed at six week intervals. Clients may require several initial treatments and then return annually for treatment of new blood vessels.
Sun protection, although this is actually not a treatment for rosacea, is still a very important part of dealing with it. Since treatments for rosacea involve the process of boosting the natural healing capabilities of the skin, it is very important that you avoid sun exposure so that the healing process of the skin does not get inhibited.
