With over 3 million cases of Rosacea reported each year, the condition has become a topic of interest amongst various healthcare professionals – including us here at The Med Spot. Rosacea, though not a life-threatening ailment, has the potential to greatly impact the lives of those affected. Those with a diagnosis of Rosacea may see common symptoms such as:
- Visible blood vessels
- Acne-like breakouts
- Eyes/eyelids swollen and irritated
While there is no cure for Rosacea, you may introduce various home practices such as lifestyle changes and protecting yourself from direct sunlight to aid in condition management. For a clinical approach, the use of laser treatments is recommended to help eliminate discomfort and limit flare-ups.
How Laser Treatment Works
Various symptoms of Rosacea react dynamically to laser treatment. For symptoms such as redness in the face or acne-like blemishes, patients reported a minimum of 20% reduction of redness. In the case of visible blood vessels, laser treatments were found to have an even greater success rate with patients reporting an average of 50%-100% reduction of symptoms.
Rosacea treatments are an average of 3-4 weeks apart. If symptoms arise between treatments your doctor may prescribe medication to maintain results between sessions.
