What is Rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin condition comprising of redness, sensitivity and break-outs that affects approximately 1 in 10 people. In rosacea, we see a long-term inflammatory process that causes an over-growth of capillary blood vessels in the upper layers of the skin. These tiny blood vessels are very sensitive and enlarge in response to sunlight, stress, exercise, alcohol, spicy food, caffeine and hot or cold weather. This causes flushing and a sensation of burning or stinging. Over time, the chronic inflammation leads to larger vessels developing (‘telangiectasia’), often seen around the nose, cheeks and chin.

How does Laser Rosacea treatment work?

Laser is a safe and effective solution to treat rosacea. We use laser light to target the tiny blood vessels causing Rosacea and close them down – permanently.

All our laser treatments require a consultation and patch-test prior to full treatment. This enables you to ask any questions you may have, prepare your skin for the treatment and to try the laser out, so that you know what to expect during your treatment and recovery. The patch-test also enables us to identify which laser settings will work best for you.

On the day of your treatment your therapist will assess how your skin felt after the patch-test. After completing the consent form and photography, the therapist will clean the skin (so don’t worry if you have makeup on), give you special goggles to wear and carry out the treatment according to the settings we identified during your patch-test. After the treatment we will cool the skin and apply aftercare serums to promote skin healing and SPF to protect the skin. The skin may feel slightly hot, like a sunburn, after treatment. This resolves within 1-3 days. We recommend simple moisturisers and sunblock after treatment.

The Pulsed Dye Laser is suitable for anyone who suffers with redness, rosacea, acne, broken capillaries, haemangiomas or cherry angiomas, port-wine stains or red scars or stretch-marks. Pulsed Dye Laser can be used on any skin type.

Yes, we require a patch-test at least 24 hours prior to your treatment (even if you have had this treatment done previously elsewhere). The patch-test takes 10 minutes to do and can often be done at your consultation appointment.

For optimal results, most patients will require 3-4 sessions (approximately 1 session per month) and will notice significant improvement after each treatment. In some circumstances, more than 4 sessions may be needed.

The results from laser treatment are permanent. However, rosacea is a chronic condition that may come back again, so you may need to do further laser sessions in future years.

Some people describe that the laser pulse feels like a rubber band flicking on the skin. It is not painful and you quickly get used to the rhythm of the laser. We use a cryogen spray to cool the skin. Anaesthetic is not generally required.

There is some redness, slight swelling and skin sensitivity (like a mild sunburn) for 3-5 days after laser treatment. These side-effects are generally mild and most people will be able to continue with normal daily routines.

Laser treatments are carried out by our experienced skin therapists.

We recommend that you pause any treatments like retinol, tretinoin, glycolic or tetracycline antibiotics for 5-7 days prior treatment, as they make the skin more sensitive to light. We recommend that you do not tan for at least 2 weeks prior to and for at least 6 weeks after this treatment. We do not advise laser treatment if you are pregnant.

Prices start from £150 for a small area or £350 for the full face (per session).
