Our Rosacea Laser Treatment
Rosacea is a skin condition that causes flushing, redness, spots and noticeable blood vessels on the cheeks and the nose. The severity of the symptoms will vary from person to person and not everybody will exhibit all the symptoms at the same time. Whilst it is a permanent condition it can come and go over time
How does the Fotona 1064nm laser treat Rosacea?
Laser treatment is fast becoming the industry leader in effectively dealing with Rosacea. The Fotona 1064nm laser works in two ways:
- It targets the tiny blood cells just under the skin surface to cause the walls of the veins to collapse.
- Directing treatment at larger pores, in a similar way as in the treatment of acne, bacteria are destroyed. Spots and blemishes are often caused by bacteria so this targeted approach will help to minimise spots and improve appearance generally.

A daily regime, using gentle products and minimal touching of your skin, is a good starting point and will help to control the redness associated with Rosacea. Ideally choose ones that will not irritate the condition further. Avoiding prolonged sun exposure and using high factor sun screen will also to keep redness to a minimum. Over time you will be able to determine the lifestyle and environmental factors that trigger a sudden flare-up and adapt your daily routine to avoid them or keep to a minimum.
