Rosacea Treatment Options
Thanks to advancements in cosmetic medicine, rosacea is no longer a condition that needs to permanently affect your appearance or your self-confidence. Here are some of your treatment options:
– Cosmeceutical Home Skincare
To ensure that your skin is receiving the care it needs to defend itself against conditions such as rosacea, it’s important to use the right skincare products. MUSE Clinic uses the Utraceuticals range to develop custom skincare plans that cater to the specific needs of our patients. Ultraceuticals is an Australian owned brand that produces scientifically-backed products that are free from chemicals, dyes and fragrances, and are designed to address conditions such as rosacea.
– Laser Genesis
Laser Genesis is an advanced laser system that uses high-power microsecond pulses at high repetition to treat conditions such as rosacea. During treatment, the upper layer of the skin is gently heated up, sealing the broken capillaries and reducing redness. Patients can expect to feel a warm sensation and absolutely no discomfort as the device moves across their skin. The average treatment lasts about 30 minutes and patients are free to return to work directly after their appointment.
– LED Light Therapy
LED light therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to activate the body’s natural healing processes and treat conditions such as rosacea. Yellow LED light is used to enhance the lymphatic system and revitalise the damaged tissue and blood vessels in the upper layer of the skin. LED light therapy treatments are completely comfortable and won’t require any downtime. Treatments usually take less than 20 minutes to complete but patients should be prepared to undergo more than one LED session to see results.
– Chemical Peels
To prevent the skin from becoming more aggravated, a light peel can be used to alleviate the redness, dilated blood vessels and inflammation caused by rosacea. Chemical peels are not ideal for treating larger capillaries, in which case laser treatments may also be required. Patients can expect to feel a tingling sensation across their skin as the peel takes effect. Depending on how red the skin appears after your treatment, you can choose to return to your normal activities or take the afternoon to recover.
– Laser Vein Removal
Laser vein removal is an ideal treatment for spider veins as well as skin conditions such as rosacea. The heat from the laser is absorbed by the broken capillaries, causing them to collapse. The capillaries will gradually be absorbed by the body and disposed of via the lymphatic system. The laser’s built-in cooling system will ensure that you are completely comfortable during your treatments and a cold compress can also be used to reduce any swelling and redness post-treatment.
