The redness finally gone.
The redness and tiny blood vessels associated with rosacea respond well to laser treatment. This is the only therapy that reduces all the symptoms of rosacea. Creams or tablets only reduce inflammation, resulting in a smaller number of pustules and acne, but facial redness and tiny blood vessels usually persist.
At the SKIN centre, we take a comprehensive approach to the treatment of rosacea using lasers and the results have been outstanding. Most patients consider the procedure painless although a slight discomfort may be present and redness after the therapy is intensified. You can go back to work right the next day after the treatment. Laser treatment of rosacea at the SKIN centre is safe and effective. After the procedure, you should avoid sun exposure or use an appropriate sunscreen (SPF 30+).
Can rosacea be cured?

The inconveniences related to rosacea differ from person to person, so you should have consultation with a dermatologist to discuss which treatment is the right treatment for you.
Laser treatment for rosacea?
For the therapy of rosacea we employ a capillary laser, which diminishes the redness and small capillaries on the face, and reduces the appearance of small bumps and pimples.
Rosacea laser therapy – what can I expect?
After a detailed discussion with the dermatologist, who will assess whether you are a suitable candidate for laser therapy, we will start with the therapy. First, we will clean the skin on the face and protect any skin spots. The laser therapy itself lasts for approximately 10 minutes. You will feel the blowing of cold air, cooling the skin’s surface. You will feel the laser therapy as a mild tingling sensation. The majority of people do not describe laser therapy as painful.
Rosacea laser therapy – what should we pay special attention to before the treatment?
Before the laser treatment you should avoid exposure to the sun and visiting solariums, as the skin should not be overly suntanned. We do not perform laser therapy iif yoy suffer from herpetic or other infections of the face or if you are pregnant and/or breastfeeding.
How does laser therapy work?
To reduce rosacea and the thin capillaries on facial skin we use a capillary laser with a light wavelength, which can exert a specific effect on the thin veins under the skin. Since the laser beam raises the temperature in these veins, the veins close and reduce in size. At least four laser therapies are needed to reduce the thin blood vessels or the redness.
