Laser treatment of Rosacea at our dermatology clinic has been shown to be an effective way of both reducing visible blood vessels and reducing the thickening of the skin associated with Rhinophyma.
How does the Laser treatment work?
At Kings Cosmetic Clinic we can treat Rosacea using our powerful Nd:Yag Laser. The Laser light travels through the skin and is absorbed by the blood within the targeted vessels whilst the adjacent tissues remain unaffected.
The Nd:YAG laser heats the blood vessels coagulating/clotting the blood and destroys the function of the vessel.
Over time, the vessel is absorbed by the body (like a bruise) and disappears from sight.
Laser treatment of Rosacea has been shown to be an effective way of both reducing visible blood vessels and reducing the thickening of the skin associated with Rhinophyma.
To reduce the thickening of the skin around the cheeks and nose, an erbium laser is used as it is designed for facial resurfacing.
You will be asked to keep your face as pale as possible by avoiding sun exposure before and during your course of treatment.
At your first visit a patch test can be performed to check for any reaction your skin may have to the laser. A week or more later the first full treatment is carried out. The whole of the affected area will be treated.
Before & After comparison
How long does treatment take?
Treatment takes approx 15 to 30 minutes and is typically 4 to 6 treatments performed at 2 to 6 weekly intervals. Clients may require several initial treatments and then return annually to treat new blood vessels. Our team of highly trained professionals at our dermatology clinic in Scotland will devise a tailored skin rejuvenation program for you.
Is treatment painful?
The dermatological treatment is generally well tolerated but some patients find it uncomfortable. Exposure is limited to an extremely short flash that feels like the snap of a rubber band. Reddening of the skin and a mild burning sensation may be felt for a while afterwards. Occasionally there is some swelling that will subside in a day or two. The beard area is avoided in men as the treatment may cause some hair loss. Bruising is unlikely but if it occurs will settle in a few days. There is a chance that pigment changes may occur in the skin, either dark marks (hyperpigmentation), or pale marks (hypopigmentation). These are temporary and fade in 1 - 6 months.
When will I see results?
Improvement may continue for many weeks after the course has finished. Rosacea is a relapsing condition and this dermatological treatment improves the appearance but does not cure the Rosacea. If you have active inflammatory Rosacea then this will need to be controlled with medication before you can have laser treatment.
