Although there is no cure for the chronic Rosacea, treatment with lasers can offers an effective, and sometimes long-term, solution for this skin disorder.
The gold standard for laser Rosacea treatment is the pulsed dye laser. These type class IV medical laser works to treat Rosacea because the targtet of the laser energy is the hemoglobin in the blood vessels that are cause the facial redness. Because these vessels are superficial and unnecessary for blood flow, the goal is to treat the Rosacea by using thermal/heat energy to close the walls of the blood vessels. The body then absorbs the small collapsed blood vessels which results in progressive fading of the Rosacea with each successive laser treatment. Treatments are usually spaced at 4 to 6 week apart in order to allow for sufficient time for the body to heal after each treatment.

An added benefit of laser treatments for Rosacea is an overall improvement in the texture of the skin. When the face has too many blood vessels near the skin’s surface, it takes on a rough, thickened texture. By resolving the superficial vascularity, the texture improves. Pulsed dye lasers also stimulate collagen remodeling and production which also improves skin texture and tone.
Treatments with the pulsed dye lasers for Rosacea can take anywhere from 6 to 8 visits. The skin type of the patient combined with their goals and lifestyle will determine whether or not they are appropriate for lasers or an alternative treatment plan. Our patients find much value in Rosacea laser treatments because they offer a variety of benefits vs. prolonged topical prescriptions and/or oral medications.
