Rosacea

Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic, common skin condition that affects many people across Australia. It affects men and women of all ages. The main characteristics of rosacea are described as persistent erythema (redness), facial flushing, pink skin, telangiectasia (visible broken capillaries), and inflammatory papules (bumps) and pustules (blemishes).

Rosacea is a skin disorder that can be treated with a variety of options to help reduce or control the unwanted symptoms. Rosacea can be problematic, aggressive, and undesirable for people who are experiencing it. Treatments generally offer relief for patients who are experiencing persistent rosacea, but currently there are no long-lasting solutions.

Fotona’s laser system is a powerful, advanced, and high-performance laser machine that incorporates two industry-standard laser modalities that are known for their ability to resurface, rejuvenate, and improve skin tone and texture. Fotona’s Nd:YAG laser is used for the treatment of vascular damage to the surface of the skin caused by conditions like rosacea, by coagulating the visible blood vessels on the surface of the skin. The Nd:YAG laser uses a Long Pulse setting to target red, purple, and violet pigmentation in the blood vessels of the skin by delivering controlled laser energy to coagulate them, reducing them in size and intensity.

Fotona is a unique system that allows practitioners to provide customized treatment options for patients according to the characteristics of the areas they are looking to treat. This customization is done by adjusting the laser parameters to effectively destroy dilated blood vessels associated by their size, depth, and colour.

Fotona treatments for rosacea are quick and effective and are recommended every 6 weeks for up to 3 treatments. Results can be assessed 3 months after the final treatment session to monitor progress and evaluate the effectiveness of the treatments
