Photo Rejuvenation

IPL Photo Rejuvenation

Photo Rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment performed with our medical-grade Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology. It is a skin treatment that uses lasers, intense pulsed light, or photodynamic therapy to treat skin conditions and remove effects of photoaging such as wrinkles, spots, and textures.

The process induces controlled wounds on the skin, prompting it to heal itself by creating new cells.

The same treatment can be used effectively on all areas of the body.

Rosacea, or acne rosacea, is a non-contagious skin inflammation that exclusively affects the face. The small surface blood vessels (capillaries) of the skin enlarge, giving the appearance of a permanent flush. The forehead, cheeks and chin may develop yellow-headed pimples. Unlike acne, rosacea does not scar.

 

The condition first appears between the ages of 30 and 50 years. Frequent flushing or blushing is commonly the first sign. Over time, permanent redness (erythema) may develop as the capillaries enlarge and pustules begin to form. In men, severe rosacea can cause the nose to become reddened and enlarged (rhinophyma).

 

The symptoms tend to worsen with advancing age. The cause is unknown and there is no permanent cure. Overheating in bed at night may contribute to the development of rosacea.

Symptoms of rosacea

The symptoms of rosacea include:

 

  • enlarged capillaries (telangiectasis)
  • a permanent flush across the nose and cheeks
  • yellow-headed pimples on the forehead, cheeks and chin
  • non-tender lumps under the skin
  • mildly swollen cheeks and nose (hyperplasia)
  • frequent blushing
  • a sensation of burning or stinging
  • a rash that is confined to the face.

Risk factors for rosacea

The cause of rosacea is unknown. Some researchers believe that people with rosacea are sensitive to the Demodex folliculorum mite, a microscopic creature that can inhabit the pores of the skin.

Environmental triggers for rosacea

Treatment for rosaceaTreatment for rosacea

Treatment options for rosacea depend on the severity, but may include:

 

avoidance of known triggers – such as sunlight, alcohol and spicy foods
antibiotics – such as doxycycline or minocycline. It is not clear how antibiotics reduce the severity of the rash. Generally antibiotics only start to work after three to four weeks and take six weeks to completely clear rosacea. Two thirds of people have a prolonged remission after a single course of antibiotic. One third relapse within a few months and may require maintenance therapy
Professional skincare program or Antibiotics that could be given by our cosmetic physician after a complete skin assessment.
