At FACESplus, we know that the embarrassment of facial redness and rosacea can make it difficult for you to feel confident putting your best face forward. Below we have information about our treatments. Please feel free to click on any of the treatments that interest you for additional information.
IPL Skin Treatments are FDA-cleared, providing non-invasive, dramatic results for the treatment of rosacea and facial redness. IPL uses Photorejuvenation to transmit a broad spectrum of light that is absorbed by the targeted areas, which addresses the presenting blood vessels without damaging the surrounding healthy skin. The blood vessels are then absorbed by the body, leaving the skin blemish-free. IPL treats the full face, neck, chest or hands with no downtime necessary. Usually, four to six sessions at three week intervals will successfully address your rosacea and facial redness.
Fraxel re:pair is an effective treatment for severe rosacea and facial redness. In many cases, only a single Fraxel re:pair session is necessary. Because Fraxel re:pair is so effective on highly damaged skin, it is a more aggressive treatment, requiring a week or so of downtime as well as post-procedure wound care. Fraxel re:pair also stimulates new cell growth while addressing rosacea-affected areas and leaving healthy skin intact.
Laser Genesis is a safe, discrete and effective treatment for rosacea and facial redness. Laser Genesis heats the upper dermis well below the surface of your skin, generating heat in the areas of your skin affected by rosacea or facial redness. The blood vessels causing the redness collapse and are reabsorbed by the body. Results tend to be subtle yet consistent after each treatment. Four or five treatments are usually enough to give you clearer, more youthful skin. After Laser Genesis treatment, there are no embarrassing or painful side effects, such as skin irritation or bruising. Treatments are so gentle, they can be performed without topical gels or anesthetics.
The Cutera laser vein removal system delivers pulses of light energy to the areas of your skin affected by rosacea or facial redness, causing the blood within the blood vessels causing the redness to coagulate. The blood vessels are then destroyed and later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow is then redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be. If you have dark, light or tanned skin, you can still get outstanding results with the Cutera laser vein removal system in just one or two treatments. Most patients report a bit of stinging during treatment, but no anesthetic is typically required. If there is any downtime, it is usually under 24 hours.
