What are the Best Treatments for Rosacea?
Treatment options for rosacea include over-the-counter and prescription medications, but these will not work for everyone and often provide only partial relief of the facial redness. For significant symptom improvement without the side effects of medication, the team at Capital Laser & Skin Care offers two treatment methods.
The VBeam® Perfecta uses a pulsed dye laser that targets red pigments in the skin. For people with rosacea, it targets the visible blood vessels that cause a flushed, red appearance. The laser energy heats the pigment molecules, breaking down the problem blood vessels and reducing redness.
Forever Young BBL™
The Forever Young BBL™ system targets broken, visible blood vessels and pigments. It uses BroadBand light with wavelengths, including infrared. This treatment has the added advantage of stimulating collagen for anti-aging effects.
What Results Will I See With Rosacea Treatment?
Most people need several treatments to manage their rosacea symptoms. The number of treatments you need will depend on the severity of your rosacea and your response to the treatments. Treatment sessions for Forever Young BBL™ and VBeam® Perfecta last about 30 minutes.
Results from both treatment methods will become visible in a few days to a week and will continue to improve with repeated treatments. Because treatments cannot cure rosacea, you may develop more symptoms. Fortunately, scheduled maintenance treatments can make sure your symptoms stay under control.
