Rosacea is a chronic and highly undesirable disorder that usually affects the skin on the face. With this condition, patients experience the engorgement of blood vessels, which yields a constant flushed appearance in the cheeks, nose, and other areas of the face. Rosacea can also appear on other locations of the body.
IPL Laser Treatment For Rosacea
IPL stands for intense pulse light. These kinds of laser treatments focus a highly concentrated beam of light, which when applied to the skin, can make it appear smoother and more youthful and can also effectively balance out the pigmentation of the skin. However, as these lasers can also remove the small but visible blood vessels within the skin, they are also an incredibly effective treatment for rosacea.
It’s very important to note that IPL laser treatments are exactly that—treatments. This form of treatment is not a “cure” for rosacea. However, many patients have had remarkable results in decreasing the symptoms of their rosacea; in some cases, entirely. For example, patients with rosacea understand that this condition is not simply an aesthetic issue—the affected skin can often sting or burn, and it’s possible that IPL laser treatments will reduce discomfort as well as the appearance of the skin.
However, patients with rosacea will have to keep in mind that multiple treatments may be necessary before an abatement or reduction in symptoms of rosacea is seen. The number of treatments will depend on the severity of the condition. The ongoing maintenance and prevention of “flare-ups” will also largely depend on the patient’s congenital predisposition, environmental exposure (such as too much sunlight), and even diet.
For a management plan concerning rosacea and to learn more about whether IPL laser treatment can be beneficial to you, an appointment with a qualified medical professional is required.
IPL Laser Treatment For Pigmentation Irregularities
IPL laser treatment is a very popular choice in correcting pigmentation irregularities, which can arise from a variety of different factors. Most commonly, skin pigmentation irregularities arise as part of the natural ageing process, resulting in what most people term “age spots” or “liver spots.” These are the small brown markings that usually appear on the face, neck, hands, and chest—all areas that can be treated with an IPL laser treatment administered by a certificated medical professional.
Skin pigmentation problems can also arise from environmental factors such as too much exposure to the sun. These spots are called “sun spots” and are very common for some patients. An IPL laser treatment can not only smooth out the skin for a more youthful, vibrant appearance, but also remove these kinds of pigmentation problems.
IPL laser treatment is an effective method for resolving other skin problems, such as acne, acne scarring, wrinkles, lines, and deep creases. Fully explore your options with this kind of treatment by scheduling a consultation with a qualified medical practitioner.
