Rosacea has a complex aetiology and its cause is multifactorial. Standard treatments from medication to topical treatments are generally not that helpful in reducing the effects of rosacea. Fotona’s rosacea laser treatment can however make a dramatic difference to people suffering with the condition by treating the different aspects of rosacea and targeting different structures with different pulse modalities.
How does it work?
The Nd:YAG used at different pulse durations targets a number of different levels within the skin addressing the multifactorial origins of rosacea.
There is an immediate shrinking the capillaries which provides an instant cosmetic result. Laser light is readily absorbed by the haemoglobin in red blood cells which breaks them down allowing the collapsing of the superficial capillaries.
The laser then addresses the spots/ bumps/boils and uneven skin associated with rosacea and reduces this followed by treating the background redness and pigmentation, giving outstanding results that last.
