Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes flushing, redness and prominent telangiectases of the face. The cause of rosacea is unknown, but is thought to occur from an exaggerated vasodilatory response. This response can occur from such causes as: exposure to hot temperatures, spicy foods, and alcohol consumption. Treatment usually consists of prescription creams or gels applied to the affected areas, along with avoidance of triggers.
Laser therapy has also been shown to be beneficial to help treat persistent erythema (redness) and telangiectases. At Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness we have the ability to effectively treat rosacea with both a medicinal and aesthetic approach. Our IPL laser limits erythema and reduces the appearance of telangiectases. For more information please contact the office at: (813) 902-9559.
