We treat the redness and broken veins of rosacea with laser. This delivers a laser to the broken blood vessels enabling them to heal up and fade away.
People with rosacea flush easily and develop redness, pimples and thread veins on their cheeks, nose and forehead. It is a common condition affecting around 10% of adults. It is more common amongst women than men. As rosacea affects the face it can cause significant psychological problems.
The unpredictable flushes can be mistaken for too much drinking. Many people with rosacea find that the rash on their face causes them embarrassment and anxiety.
Flare ups of rosacea can be controlled by antibiotic lotions or tablets as well as avoiding certain foods and beverages and sunlight. The better active flare ups are controlled the fewer thread veins are left behind. Laser is used to help with the remaining redness and broken veins.
