Should I get IPL for rosacea?


It has been shown that IPL photofacial sessions are effective at treating rosacea and other skin problems. With an IPL photofacial, a variety of wavelengths of light energy are used in a visually similar manner to a camera’s flash, resulting in a more in-depth and significant skin rejuvenation procedure. To treat rosacea, the laser light from the IPL penetrates the skin lesions or broken vessels to stimulate healing. As rosacea fades, the skin will become smoother and more even, revealing a smoother tone. The entire face is treated in approximately 20 – 30 minutes.

How does IPL help rosacea flushing?


In rosacea, the skin flares up with redness, irritation, and pus-filled bumps that cause flushing and irritation of the face. A dilated and broken blood vessel beneath the skin causes this condition. In the absence of treatment, the symptoms may progress over time. Using high-intensity light sources, intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) can effectively destroy these blood vessels to eliminate redness caused by rosacea.
 
IPL is not able to completely cure rosacea, but it can effectively control it. Oxyhemoglobin in the blood is heated by the intense pulses of light, which destroys damaged capillaries near the skin surface. Constrictions and shrinkages of visible blood vessels are also caused by it.
 
As a result of both actions, rosacea’s redness and irritation are reduced. It also reduces pimples and bumps, as well as irritation and itching associated with this condition.

How many IPL treatments does it take to get rid of rosacea?


Rosacea can be treated with light-based treatments such as intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser to reduce redness and visible blood vessels. Redness and blood vessels on the face usually improve after a series of treatments.
 
For mild to moderate cases of rosacea, a course of three to five sessions is usually enough to clear most of the facial redness and vessels. A doctor or registered nurse administering the treatment will normally discuss with you how many sessions are needed.
 
It is possible to control rosacea by avoiding triggers and using skin care products suitable for your skin type, but rosacea is a chronic condition, and redness and dilated blood vessels are likely to return. Further maintenance IPL laser treatments should be performed every six months or two years for most people treating rosacea.

How do I prepare for IPL treatment?


The best ways to prepare for IPL treatment are to carefully follow your instructions following your initial consultation. These will typically include practicing healthy skincare routines, avoiding extensive exposure to the sun, ceasing medication that can cause extra bleeding, and staying hydrated before and after treatment.
 
A layer of gel will be applied over your face and eye protectors will be provided. A handheld device will deliver short pulses of light to the treatment area during the treatment. Three passes are typically made to ensure full coverage.
 
When you feel a pulse, you’ll see an intense red flash, feel some warmth, and feel as though a rubber band has been lightly snapped. In order to treat your entire facial area methodically, your technician monitors your skin continuously and measures the pulses of light.
 
It should not take more than 30 minutes to complete the session. As your skin heals, you need to moisturize it well, twice a day, since it may become dry and peel. A zinc broad-based SPF50 and a hat or cap are essential to protecting your skin following and between treatments.
 
As the skin slowly heals from IPL treatment, there is some minimal social downtime associated with this treatment for rosacea. Generally, you will experience redness, swelling, and darkening of dark spots and age spots for about one week.
