If you suffer from rosacea or skin redness, you’re not alone. Many women are dealing with the same issues and try to cover it up with makeup! It’s time to say goodbye to skin redness for good. If you’re tired of skin redness making you feel self-conscious, there are treatments at medical spas like ANU that can help to reduce skin redness and make you feel beautiful.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a type of light therapy that is used to treat multiple skin issues, including rosacea. IPL releases light of many different wavelengths to penetrate down to the second layer of skin without harming the top layer. The heat from the light destroys unwanted pigments to clear up the redness. During an IPL treatment, a cool gel will be rubbed onto your skin and then light pulses from the IPL device are applied to your skin.
This treatment can be used anywhere on your body!
Laser treatments work wonderfully for patients with rosacea and redness. Laser genesis is a unique skin therapy that works to even skin tones, treat fine lines and wrinkles, and even scarring and burns. Laser genesis uses heat to kill bacteria on and under the skin and penetrates deep to stimulate collagen, which evens your skin tone. You’ll see the best results after multiple treatments (about four or five). During the procedure, patients can expect a subtle warming sensation and are typically fine to return to normal activities after the procedure.
