The Fotona Starwalker laser has immediate effects on shrinking the capillaries which provides an instant cosmetic result.
Laser light is readily absorbed by the haemoglobin in red blood cells which breaks them down allowing the superficial capillaries to collapse.
The laser then addresses the spots/ bumps/boils and uneven skin associated with rosacea and reduces this followed by treating the background redness and pigmentation, giving lasting results.
Signs and symptoms of rosacea may flare up for weeks to months and then go away for a while. Rosacea can be mistaken for acne, dermatitis and other skin problems.
There's no cure for rosacea, but treatment can control and reduce the signs and symptoms. We offer laser treatments which have great effect on the redness and blood vessels. Other treatments include long term topical or oral antibiotics which many people are reluctant to take.
The actual cause of rosacea is unclear, however there is a strong possibility it could be due to an overactive immune system, genetic make-up and environmental factors.
Rosacea is not contagious, and it’s not caused poor by poor hygiene.
Possible triggers for flare-ups:
You can expect to feel a zapping sensation with a combination of heat, it has been described like a flick of a rubber band. With application of numbing cream, it has been described by many patients as painless.
We can reduce the redness and inflammation that is accompanied with rosacea, by using a long pulse laser treatment. The laser with target the discolouration in the skin, by coagulating the superficial blood vessels with the rosacea, which will lead to a reduction in the size and intensity of the redness and blood vessels within the affected area.
The results from Fotona rosacea laser treatment can be examined 3 months after the final treatment session. At this time, we can monitor progress and evaluate the effectiveness of the rosacea laser treatments.
To achieve best results for rosacea treatment, we will customise your treatment plan and laser settles to your skin type and current skin condition.
