Many people with rosacea are unfamiliar with it and do not recognize it in its early stages. Identifying the disease is the first step to controlling it. Self-diagnosis and treatment are not recommended since some over-the-counter skin products may make the problem worse.
Although different types of lasers can be used to treat a red rosacea complexion, one of the most effective lasers on the market is our Cutera Laser Genesis, near-infrared (NIR) Nd:YAG laser.
What to Expect
Typically, laser therapy requires a series of treatments to see results. You may need anywhere from two to eight treatments, which are spaced about six weeks apart.
How Effective Is It?
Most patients report that laser treatment helps reduce visible blood vessels, flushing, and redness. In fact, a recent study found that people with rosacea undergoing laser therapy saw a 40 to 60 percent improvement in these symptoms after the second treatment.
The Side Effects of Laser Treatment
Side effects from both types of laser treatments are typically minimal. You may find that you’re red, swollen, and sore the day after treatment.
