Is IPL recommended for treating rosacea?

Tags: woman age 25-34 face rosacea redness

Does IPL Photofacial treat unwanted redness? My face gets red all the time and its very embarrassing. I also experience a burning and stinging feeling along with the flushing. I'm an introvert person, and this is attracting too much attention from everyone. I would love to make it stop, if possible. Should I research some other kinds of treatments?

I have success with IPL for rosacea - likely it depends on the specific IPL device used and the appropriate settings.  We also use our vascular laser, in addition to IPL, to treat the distinct vessels that are sometimes seen in Rosacea.  We recommend 2 to 3 sessions and yearly maintenance.

IPL can help with rosacea, but in our practice we've had more luck with vBeam (pulsed dye laser), so you  might want to look into that treatment.
