What is Rosacea and How Can Lasers Make It Disappear?

As nice as it would be to enjoy clear and flawless skin all of your life, the reality is that a number of different skin conditions will impact your complexion over the years. Rosacea is one such skin condition that is often puzzling and frustrating to people who experience it. Fortunately, the team at Tampa Laser Hair Removal in Zephyrhills, Florida offers professional rosacea laser treatment to help you have the clear skin you’ve always wanted.

What Is Rosacea, Anyway?

Pronounced “roh-ZAY-sha,” this skin condition most commonly affects men and women over the age of 30. It is defined by redness on the cheeks, nose, chin, or forehead that intensifies an fades in intervals. Left untreated, rosacea has the potential to become ruddier, more persistent, and accompanied by blood vessels and pimples.  

This skin condition is actually caused by extra veins that don’t serve any function in the face. Instead, they fill up with blood more rapidly than other veins. Stimuli like exercise, coffee, alcohol, spicy foods, and sun exposure can all make the extra veins show themselves more aggressively. Since so many rosacea stimuli are impossible to avoid entirely, the condition persists. About 14 million men and women currently suffer from rosacea, and most would agree that the condition diminishes self-esteem and causes incredible frustration.

Can Lasers Treat Rosacea?

There are many lifestyle changes you can make to help your rosacea subside, like eating a healthier diet, using acupuncture, and identifying and removing outbreak triggers. However, the majority of people with rosacea find that lifestyle management isn’t enough to keep their skin clear. Laser surgery is the only way to permanently destroy the veins that cause rosacea.

Laser treatment delivers energy into excess blood vessels to destroy their lining. Treated blood vessels shrink, collapse, and disappear from the surface of the skin. Results aren’t immediate, but they are quick! You can expect to receive anywhere from two to eight treatments depending on the severity of your rosacea, with each treatment set six weeks apart. Most patients notice some improvement after the first treatment, and 40 to 60 percent improvement after just the second treatment!
