Treatment for rosacea

Dear Cheryl,

I am interested in getting treatment for my rosacea. What would you recommend to treat this? Will it hurt afterwards?



Hi C,
The V-Beam laser is the gold standard for treating vascular skin conditions. This includes the treatment of rosacea, port wine stains, and broken blood vessels. The V-Beam laser uses a wavelength that selectively targets your blood vessels, heating them and causing them to close.
Immediately after the treatment your face or whatever area you had treated will feel sunburned. Redness and swelling is also common and can last several days. Depending on the condition, bruising is also possible. Ice and a mild topical steroid may be applied immediately after treatment and may be recommended for the first 1-2 days after the procedure.

Please call 206.859.5777 or email to schedule a free consultation with me. I look forward to treating you!
