Many people experience flushing and redness of the face and neck. Sun injury, medications (e.g., steroids), surgery or injuries, radiation, or genetic factors may all contribute to this condition. This vexing condition is called Rosacea.
Research have discovered that laser treatment for rosacea can help with the symptoms. Various types of lasers are used to treat various aspects of rosacea. At Erina Skin Cancer Clinic, we perform Laser Genesis to treat rosacea symptoms. Our cosmetic doctors are available to deliver your desired results, with no downtime.
What Is Rosacea?
Rosacea (also known as Acne Rosacea) is widespread but misunderstood skin condition. It is more common in women and those with fair skin. It is a condition that runs in families. Since there are no screening tests, the diagnosis is still clinical. Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects young adults and causes flushing and redness in the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chins.
Flushing is often caused by alcohol, spicy foods, hot beverages, emotions, exercise, and temperature changes. Some sufferers develop pimples, and the majority note that their skin is extremely sensitive. Rosacea can lead to a thickening of the skin around the nose, which can become bulbous (Rhinophyma).
There are several effective treatments for rosacea. One of them is the Laser Genesis. This non-invasive and painless procedure involves gently heating the skin with a laser.
Laser Genesis may help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, dark spots, and wrinkles by smoothing the skin. Its main purpose is to fade scarring, redness, and broken blood vessels, as well as to enhance the appearance of rosacea.
People of all ages and skin tones who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines or redness can benefit from this. Pregnant women, however, should avoid laser treatment for rosacea.
How Does the Laser Treatment Work?
Laser genesis is a simple procedure that takes less than 45 minutes to complete. It is performed in our cosmetic and laser centre by our professionally qualified cosmetic doctors.
The laser itself appears to be a tiny wand connected to a larger rig. You will be wearing goggles, and your hair might be hidden in some situations. The treatment is painless in and of itself. You can feel a light heat on your face, which some people describe as cool, almost like the sun. You are free to drive yourself home.
Laser genesis increases collagen formation, plumping the skin and reducing the development of fine lines and wrinkles by heating the dermis directly underneath the skin.
The laser's heat will constrict blood vessels, which can help reduce redness and rosacea. It may also aid in the treatment of acne and scarring.
