How does Rosacea Treatment work?
Each individuals Rosacea symptoms are different, so your physician will help you with a treatment plan for your specific case. To remove visible blood vessels or reduce extensive redness, vascular lasers emit wavelengths of light that target tiny blood vessels just under the skin. Heat from the laser’s energy builds in the vessels, causing them to disintegrate. Generally, at least three treatments are required, depending on the severity of redness or visible blood vessels.

Having Rosacea treated will not only help the current problem but will prevent the Rosacea from getting worse. The laser treats the dilated blood vessels which cause the redness and flushing. Not only does it help your physical appearance, it improves your self-confidence which is in most cases highly affected.
