Rosacea Laser Treatment in Surrey

Rosacea is a common skin condition where the skin becomes flushed, resulting in redness and swelling. It mainly affects the face, but it can also appear on the scalp, neck, chest and back.

The flushed skin typically feels itchy/burning and small white or yellow pimples may appear, which sometimes become filled with fluid (pustules). When the nose is affected, particularly in older men, the skin becomes thickened, swollen and purple, which is called rhinophyma.
Rosacea can appear at any age, although it most commonly starts between the ages of 30 and 55. In some cases the rash becomes permanent, leaving the skin red and inflamed. Because rosacea typically affects the face many people feel self-conscious about the condition. However, effective treatment is available.

At health + aesthetics our advanced laser treatment has excellent results in treating rosacea and we help many patients with this condition throughout both Surrey and Hampshire.

What can be treated?

The following can be safely and effectively treated –

  • Rosacea
  • Facial flushing
  • Thread Veins (spider or broken veins)
  • Spider naevi
  • Campbell de Morgan spots (cherry angiomas)

How does the treatment work?

When the vascular lesion, with higher concentrations of haemoglobin, is exposed to short pulses of visible light, the temperature is raised in the area. This results in damage and breakdown of the vessels which are then absorbed by the body, making them less visible or destroying them completely.

Will I be suitable for treatment?

Most people with vascular lesions will be suitable for treatment. You will need to attend for an assessment to check if you are suitable for treatment and how many sessions are needed.

How many sessions will I need?

Most patients need a course of 3-6 treatments every 4 weeks to achieve the desired results.

What are the side-effects?

The treatment is not painful and at most you may notice slight discomfort.

Depending upon your skin type (and the lesion we treat), there is redness and swelling in the treated area for up to 2-3 days after treatment. However, we can significantly reduce the swelling and enhance the healing by having Dermalux LED Light Therapy immediately after the laser treatment.

The treated area may also appear darker for 5-7 days after treatment but this will clear shortly afterwards.

What is the after-care?

  • Immediately after treatment there will be redness and swelling of the treatment area and this feels like mild sunburn.
  • Applying cool packs to the skin for the first few hours after treatment will help reduce discomfort.
  • Application of Aloe Vera gel is helpful.
  • Use SPF 50 and avoid sun exposure. This is essential to avoid the risk of hyperpigmentation or darker pigmentation.
  • Avoid picking and scratching the treated area to reduce the risk of pigmentation.
  • Avoid hot baths, exercise, and heat treatments and treat the skin gently especially for the first 24 hours after treatment.

How can I improve my results?

You can enhance your results by using cosmeceutical skincare as well as high level, broad spectrum sun protection to reduce photo-damage.

Testimonials

"ROSACEA

For the past 4-5 years, my main problem has been redness or rosacea on my face. My skin started to burn and feel itchy, blotchy and there were red patches particularly on my chin, cheeks and my nose area.

For years, I went to see a dermatologist in London who put me on antibiotic courses one after the other with less and less success.  really felt that they let me down, as the antibiotics courses were so intense and at the end I developed some health issues, infections etc.

I could hardly believe my luck that there was a skin and face clinic in Farnham, where I live and booked a consultation with Dr Tailor at once. She listened to my concerns and discussed every step with me in detail, what is going to happen, how the products and treatments work and then she proposed a personal treatment plan for my problem. She used a digital equipment to map up my face and analyse the state of my skin underneath. I learnt so much about my skin, the skin cycle and skin health in general!

So I started with some selected medicated products from the so-called ZO skincare range and also had a HydraFacial treatment to cleanse and optimise my skin health before the procedure (laser therapy). I have been to one HydraFacial treatment and I loved it! It was so nice and my skin got so clean and glowing. 

The products are AMAZING, especially the serum called Rozatrol. After first use, I didn’t have red face at all! I love this product and could not believe that a single application of a serum could have such a huge effect on my skin.

My new skin regime has changed everything. I have been using the ZO products for 6 weeks now, and after 4 weeks I came back for a control skin analysis and the results have been amazing! Beforehand, my skin was red, blotchy and burning and these products just changed everything.

I’m really grateful to Dr Tailor and all the staff members to have helped me when I was in despair and felt lost. I’m really happy now and can’t wait to have more Hydrafacial treatments and look forward to the laser treatment in a few weeks’ time.

Thank you!
