What is Rosacea Laser Treatment?

Rosacea is a very interesting condition. It essentially has no pathology
or described ideology, or that means a pathological process that is well defined with the source and a cause that causes it. So rosacea is essentially
an entire spectrum of different symptoms
from simple rosy cheeks to major fulminate oozing pustular rosacea and it can be very
severe, very debilitating, and of course not only is it a process of the skin destroying
itself, but it’s also can be a hotbed of bacterial infestation because of all the seeping and oozing. The traditional way of treating rosacea by the average physician
or dermatologist is to use creams on the
face, usually steroids, that simply suppress inflammation. So they will suppress the rosacea symptoms but not deal with the underlying condition of the skin. So there are two things
that we need to do. One is to take care of
the vascularization at the surface so that
the rosacea looks much better and takes care of all the inflammation. But underneath that in the dermis, this is something that people
don’t often talk about, the vascularization shouldn’t be able to get up into the top
layers and to the epithelium. So just taking off or reducing or treating the top layers or all that redness and vascularization is not enough. We need to go down beneath that and strengthen the collagen matrix of the top layers of the dermis. Now lasers are very good at doing that and we have different types of lasers that do it in different
ways, stimulating different components of the physiological machinery of collagen production, and
you’re gonna be seeing that in the laser rosacea procedure that’s coming up. Dr. Pien is using more
than one kind of laser to get down underneath into the dermis and strengthen and regenerate
and remodel new strong tight, lifted, toned collagen that will keep the vascularization in the
dermis where it belongs and not allow it to get up where everybody can see it. Now as you can see from some of the before and after photographs, someone with severe rosacea can get it completely cleared up where their skin looks
completely flesh tone and normal, and no broken capillaries or spider veins or massive redness or seeping or oozing, all of that is simply gone. And doing it the way we do it, by working both at the top layers and down deep in the
dermis, this is truly a cure for rosacea that lasts for a very very long time. The rosacea may come back,
but it won’t come back quickly as it didn’t show up
originally quickly either. It took a long time for it to show up. So the question is can this be done in just one rosacea laser treatment? Well it depends on the
severity of the rosacea. In very light cases, one
laser rosacea treatment might be enough. In very severe cases,
first there’s a series of treatments that take
care of all the inflammation and the vascularization on the surface before we can get down underneath and take care of the collagen
remodeling and strengthening. So for a severe case, it may take three to five laser rosacea treatments to
really clear this up. The results of course are
to have natural looking, smooth looking, and feeling, it feels good to touch skin that’s
not pustular and oozing, and it looks wonderful.
