What is Diffused Redness or Rosacea?
Diffuse redness is a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks also known as Rosacea. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting in an appearance of general redness, not discrete, well-defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Laser or IPL treatments will help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.
What does this procedure do?
Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming if your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser hand piece is moved back and forth about a centimeter above the skin. The heating of the skin stimulates collagen re-growth and dilates the capillaries. On average, you will require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoors activities.
