Reduce your redness
Rosacea is a skin condition that affects 1 in 10 people
The exact cause of rosacea is unknown, but Laser treatments can help reduce some of the symptoms.
Rosacea conditions are triggered by certain behaviours.
To get the best result it is useful to identify and avoid triggers that worsen rosacea.
Common triggers are cold and hot weather, air conditioning, spicy food, alcohol and exercise.
Commom Symptoms of Rosacea
- Facial redness
- Visible blood vessels
- Papules and pustules
- Thickened skin
- Sensitive skin – burning, itching, stinging and pain

How it works
Dilated and visible blood vessels, facial redness and red flushing are characteristic symptoms of rosacea, and these are all caused by haemoglobin (blood) sitting close to the surface of the skin. This haemoglobin can be targeted by Lasers.
Our Nd:YAG 1064 nm is optimal for treating dermal blood vessels as haemoglobin readily absorbs this Laser radiation, heating the lesion until it is coagulated, this is removed by the body’s immune system, revealing a clearer complexion.
Patient results and treatment experiences may vary.
1. Treatment information
Generally, there is a good reduction in redness after 2 sessions, but if the rosacea condition continues to flare up, multiple treatments may be necessary.
The treatment is generally considered tolerable, with a sensation likened to an elastic band snap.
Treatment can take between 15 -45 mins and can be performed monthly.
Redness may last for an hour, and some lesions may temporarily darken before disappearing.
