On the day of your set appointment with our dermatologists, a thorough examination is conducted to understand the severity of your Rosacea. This helps our specialists to come up with treatment options which are then laid out for you.
One session of Rosacea laser/IPL therapy takes about one hour. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may require four to eight Rosacea treatment sessions in a period of twelve to fifteen weeks to attain optimal results. The treatments are performed under a topical anesthetic cream to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment sessions.
After the treatment sessions, one may experience pink flushes on the treated areas which fade away after a few hours. The treatment areas may also appear darker but the skin returns to normal after a couple of days.
After each treatment session, one should avoid exposure to sunlight and keep the treated areas moisturized.
We provide our clients with a post-treatment guide to maintain the acquired results and decrease the chances of rosacea occurring. For example, we point out the trigger factors and encourage our patients to avoid them if possible.
