At Pure Medical Cosmetics, we use IPL Photofacial treatments to target redness and swelling of the face, nose, chin and cheeks caused by rosacea.

IPL Treatments for Rosacea

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy uses multiple wavelengths of light to help treat redness by targeting the dilated blood vessels in the face without the need for invasive procedures.

Unlike other types of lasers, an IPL device sends out multiple wavelengths of pulsating light offering the unique ability to treat a range of skin conditions at the same time including acne, skin texture concerns, discolouration and more.

IPL laser treatment may be able to help clients who experience skin-related concerns due to health conditions such as rosacea, natural aging or environmental factors. This light works by heating the cells within the skin to a point where they safely break down allowing your body to naturally remove and replenish the cells.

Rosacea can be easily dismissed in the early stages when most clients assume that the redness will improve on its own. Unfortunately, this is not usually the case and when left untreated the effects of rosacea can cause persistent and more severe concerns including swollen, red bumps and an enlarged nose.

Rosacea IPL treatments work to help push the blood in the face away from the skin to coagulate and deconstruct spider veins, allowing the body to absorb them resulting in the effect of rosacea being reduced.

What to Expect

Rosacea treatment using IPL will be different for each client. Individual treatment will be determined by the type of rosacea you are experiencing and the depth of the blood vessels being treated.

While rosacea treatment is nearly pain-free, you may experience the equivalent of little snaps on your skin throughout the procedure. A numbing cream may be applied prior to your service to help minimize the pain. 

Thanks to the non-invasive nature of IPL Photofacial services our clients typically resume regular activities immediately following laser treatment for rosacea. You may experience mild side effects such as swelling and sensitive skin during the first 48 hours post-treatment as well as redness which typically fades within 2 weeks.

We suggest that all clients avoid the sun and use an SPF 30+ sunscreen after an IPL rosacea facial in order to protect the skin.

In general, we recommend 3 to 6 treatments to see the best results.

Please be aware that laser treatment for rosacea can not be done on tanned skin or if you have excessive sun exposure 2 weeks before your appointment.
