Rosacea & Facial Redness Laser Treatment
Performed at our Duluth, GA medical office, north of Atlanta.
Rosacea is a skin condition in which the blood vessels close to the surface of the skin dilate, producing the appearance of flushing. Other symptoms associated with rosacea can include visible blood vessels (like spider veins) in the face, acne-like breakouts of small pustules, and persistent redness on the cheeks, chin, forehead and nose, as well as on the chest, neck, ears, and scalp. While rosacea is generally harmless, the embarrassment and social effects associated with the chronic skin condition can be damaging.
Red spots also known as hemangiomas or vascular lesions are typically only a cosmetic issue. Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center in Duluth, just north of Atlanta, Georgia, offers red spot removal on the face and body. Red spots can usually be removed in one treatment with no down time; occasionally, two treatments are necessary to remove larger vascular lesions.
Laser treatment for rosacea targets the enlarged capillaries under the skin that produce the redness. By destroying the enlarged blood vessels and allowing the body to absorb and eliminate them naturally, laser rosacea treatment eliminates the embarrassing flushing and redness associated with the chronic skin condition.
In the early stages, rosacea can be mild with only occasional symptoms, but over time, the condition can become more severe and more persistent. Starting laser treatments before your rosacea worsens may be able to slow the progression and leave you symptom-free for months at a time.
