Laser Treatment For Rosacea

Smiling Woman | Laser Treatment for RosaceaRosacea is a condition that causes pimples and redness to develop. Anyone can develop this skin condition, but it is most common in people with fair skin. Women are also more likely to develop rosacea than men just as older people are more likely to develop this condition than younger people.

Skin flushing, a swollen nose, acne, dry eyes, thick skin on the cheeks, chin or forehead are some of the most common symptoms of rosacea. Some people may also develop vision problems. The exact causes of rosacea are unknown. However, although rosacea has a tendency to run in families, is is neither contagious nor dangerous.

Laser treatment for rosacea is very effective therapy for treating thick skin around the nose and reducing flushing or redness caused by blood vessels. Pulse of light are used to create a clearer, more natural-looking complexion

Patients must continue to use topical medications in order to combat the bumps and pimples that accompany rosacea. Additionally, patients typically have to receive multiple treatments in order to see the desired outcome. Laser treatment is very safe, but it does come with the risks of side effects. Swelling, redness and bruising are some of the more commonly reported side effects. However, these side effects usually dissipate within two weeks.

While the time to complete a laser treatment for rosacea normally takes thirty minutes, the procedure time is always dependent on the size of the area being treated. Finally, there is little to no discomfort associated with getting this treatment.

There is no cure for rosacea. However, laser therapy offers a proven method of treatment. Dr. Jean Chapman and the staff at LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic can perform laser treatment for patients in the Atlanta area who are tired of dealing with the redness, flushing, and thick skin around their nose cause by rosacea.
