What is Rosacea and facial flushing treatment?

Rosacea is a common and long-term skin condition that mainly affects a person’s face. When rosacea first appears, the face may look flushed. Later symptoms include permanent redness, spots, visible blood vessels and a sensation of burning or tingling.

Rosacea affects around one in 10 people to some extent, mostly among people with fair skin. The cause of rosacea is not known, although there are several different theories. While no-one knows definitely what causes rosacea, some circumstances and conditions can trigger the condition.
At London Real Skin, we use the Dye-VL technology to treat facial redness, flushing and thread veins. Such therapy enables to effectively reduce the red branching that cover usually the face and causes the result of skin reddening which is difficult to camouflage.

What are the benefits of Rosacea and facial flushing treatment?

The treatment provides a significant reduction of the redness as well as the flushing episodes.

What is involved in Rosacea and facial flushing treatment?

During a consultation, one of our practitioner will examine your skin. They will determine if you are suitable for this procedure. If so, photos will be taken before the procedure.
The skin will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution and a cool gel will be applied onto the skin. The practitioner will commence treatment. Patient have reported a warm sharp sensation to the skin during the treatment.
Photos will be taken after the procedure, and this allows the practitioner to compare the results.

What are the risks or potential side-effects of Rosacea and facial flushing treatment?

Laser treatment for facial redness is not suitable for the following people:

    • Pregnant or breast-feeding
    • Patients with sunburn
    • Patients suffering from melasma, seizure disorders, herpes simplex virus, hyperpigmentation, history of photosensitivity to light
    • Patients on isotretinoin, topical or oral steroids, medications that cause photosensitivity

Although there is no downtime associated with this treatment, the skin may appear red for a few hours. It can be easily covered with makeup and people can go back to their activities immediately after.

What aftercare is required for Rosacea and facial flushing treatment?

The following aftercare is recommended to improve the treatment results and to minimise side-effects from the treatment:

  • The application of a cool pack during the first few hours after treatment will reduce any discomfort.
  • Apply only Biafine or aloe vera gel (without alcohol) to the treated area
  • Makeup may be used immediately after the treatment unless there is epidermal blistering. (Preferably mineral make up)
  • Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation or darker pigmentation. Use sunscreen SPF50+ or greater at all times throughout the course of treatment.
  • Avoid swimming until the treated area is fully healed
  • Avoid hot baths, heat treatments and exercise for the first 48 hours
  • Avoid picking scabs
  • Avoid using retinoids for 2 days before treatment and 7 days post treatment

Immediately after treatment, there may be redness and swelling at the treatment area, this may feel like mild sunburn. If pigment is present, it will become darker and form a scab. This is a normal effect of treatment. Swelling can occur, especially on cheek area. We recommend sleeping with an extra pillow to decrease swelling.
