Try Laser Technology to Treat Your Rosacea

Did you know about 14 million people in the United States have Rosacea? It's a very common skin disease that worsens if left untreated. Rosacea causes redness and sometimes pus-filled bumps. It's a lifelong condition that impacts physical health, as well as emotional health.

We, at Cleveland Family Health, know how crippling rosacea can be. Which is why we offer laser treatments to improve your skin so you feel more confident!

What is rosacea?

People with rosacea experience a deep red blush, that doesn't go away over time. Instead, the redness spreads. And causes pus-filled bumps. Rosacea is often confused with acne. But it's a little different. Acne starts with lesions, blackheads, or bumps. Rosacea starts with redness. And as inflammation worsens, can cause pimples.

Rosacea is more common among women than men. There's also a strong genetic component to the condition. Meaning, if one of your parents or grandparents had rosacea, you’re more likely to have it as well.

How is rosacea treated?

There are several different treatment plans for rosacea. Your doctor might have you remove potential irritants from your diet and environment. Specific triggers can cause flare-ups. Whether it's food or the air conditioner in your room. Once identified, you can remove those triggers and your skin can heal.

Implementing a rigorous skin routine is another way to treat rosacea. This could mean a two-step facial cleanse. Or, an everyday exfoliant. There’s a reason there are so many skin products out there. Everyone's skin needs something specific. Your doctor might have you use a product for six months or so to see if your skin improves.

With that said, removing triggers and changing cleansers might not be enough. Especially if your rosacea is severe. That’s where modern technology comes in.

How can laser technology help?

Laser technology is a technique where a laser removes layers of the skin, in order for new, healthy skin to grow. During these treatments, light beams heat up the vessels of your skin. Which dissolves your troubled skin cells and makes room for new cells to flourish.

Don’t worry though, you won’t feel a thing! Laser technology is virtually painless. Most patients feel nothing more than a slight pull. Do you have lower pain tolerance? We can provide you with a mild numbing anesthetic to ensure you have a painless procedure.

Depending on the severity of your rosacea, many laser sessions might be necessary. Your doctor will discuss the treatment plan with you before your appointment. And determine a schedule that matches your lifestyle, as well as your skincare needs.

How quick are the results?

The results are visible within weeks. And results last up to five years. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, laser technology can help treat your rosacea. So you can feel confident about your skin.
