Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder affecting the skin on the face. Redness and flushing are probably the most prominent and common features of rosacea. Although oral and topical antibiotics are often prescribed to treat Rosacea, laser treatment is the best option. This technology is also highly effective in treating the red lines (telangietasis) and improving the acne-like pimples associated with rosacea.
Various lasers are used to treat rosacea, including the ND:YAG laser and the pulsed-dye laser, To help remove rosacea-associated thickening of the skin on the nose and cheeks (rhinophyma), lasers such as the erbium:YAG laser and the CO2 are sometimes used.
Although most patients see a significant improvement in their symptoms following one laser session, several sessions are usually needed to complete the treatment.
