Rosacea and Thread vein treatment
Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects parts of the face. Around 15% of women in Ireland are affected by rosacea, most of them in middle age. Symptoms can include flushing, redness, spots and thickened skin. Not everyone experiences all of the symptoms, but any can be concerning or distressing to the sufferer.
Thread veins are very common with rosacea. We can treat both problems with Intense Pulse Light.
Frequently asked questions
How does the treatment work?
Short, safe bursts of intense pulsed light are directed into the skin. The system filters the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by haemoglobin in the blood in your problem vessels.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments depends on location and density of thread veins.
Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment?
The light used is completely safe, visible light. It is, however, important to avoid tanning (UV sun exposure or self-tanning products) before and during the treatment period.
Does this treatment hurt?
There is no anesthetics required, and many patients describe the treatment as a warm flick followed by a warm senation.
