Can an IPL Photofacial Improve Redness From Rosacea?

Redness From RosaceaRosacea is a skin condition that impacts over 14 million people in the United States. This prevalent skin condition leads to redness, visible blood vessels, and small red bumps in some people. 

Dealing with rosacea can be frustrating and negatively impact your self-image. Luckily, aesthetic treatments like the IPL photofacial can help relieve redness, helping people with rosacea achieve clear, beautiful skin. 

Understanding Rosacea

Rosacea is the most common among middle-aged women with a light skin tone. However, it can affect anyone at any age. While there isn’t a cure for rosacea, treatments like the IPL photofacial can be used to manage it. 

Many different factors can cause rosacea flare-ups, from temperature extremes to cosmetic products to alcoholic drinks and even strong emotions. But, by managing rosacea with known treatment options, you can avoid rosacea flare-ups and maintain an even skin tone. 

What is The IPL Photofacial?

IPL stands for intense pulsed light. During the IPL photofacial, a gentle pulsed light eliminates pigmented skin and unwanted blood vessels while leaving the healthy skin untouched. The IPL laser also stimulates collagen production in the skin, prompting it to heal itself naturally. After the IPL photofacial, visible blood vessels are absorbed back into the skin and skin redness is visibly decreased. This may occur immediately or in the days following the treatment. 

By reducing redness, pigmentation, and visible blood vessels, the IPL photofacial eases symptoms of rosacea for clearer skin. This non-invasive treatment is painless and typically takes just 30 minutes to complete. For optimal improvement to your rosacea symptoms, two to six IPL photofacial treatments may be recommended.
