How to treat rosacea

 

Laser skin resurfacing treatments can significantly reduce the appearance of redness and rosacea - read on to find out how.

For anyone dealing with persistent redness or rosacea, achieving an even skin tone and calming flare-ups can feel like an uphill battle.  

However, thanks to laser skin resurfacing treatments, you can see a visible difference in the appearance of your rosacea or redness. So if you’ve been wondering how to get rid of redness on the face, keep reading to find out everything you need to know. 

IPL laser treatments for rosacea 

For a targeted treatment that works effectively underneath the outer layer of skin, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a popular option. It safely pulses laser energy through the skin’s ruface, targeting the blood vessels in the desired area in the underlying tissue.

This prompts the body’s own natural healing response, which causes new cells to form, resulting in clearer, smoother skin with reduced redness. It also helps to stimulate collagen production, giving you stronger, firmer skin. 

Skincare tips for getting rid of facial redness 

Making sure you have the right skincare routine will support the effects of your IPL treatments and help you manage any rosacea breakouts.  

While everyone’s skin and experience of rosacea is different, there are a few things you can do to keep your routine as rosacea-friendly as possible, including: 

Keep your routine as simple as possible – stick to cleanser, moisturiser and sunscreen to cover all the basics 

Trial any new products carefully by testing on a small patch of skin for at least one week, before adding to your routine 

Avoid any skincare ingredients that can be drying, including alcohol, witch hazel, menthol, fragrances and camphor
