During the summer, there are so many things to think about when it comes to your skin. Protecting it and moisturizing it are at the top of the list. Rosacea should not be on the list. Today there is a procedure called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) that can reduce the symptoms of rosacea and keep you looking great throughout the summer months.
What is Rosacea?
Rosacea is a skin condition that causes the skin to look red and inflamed on the cheeks and nose. Summertime aggravates this condition. Up until now, only protective moisturizers and sunscreens kept the rosacea from becoming worse along with medicines for rosacea to hold the hyperpigmentation and flaring at bay.
How Can I Treat Rosacea?
As technology is advancing, better ways are being developed to deal with rosacea. One such treatment for rosacea is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy. This treatment involves concentrated pulses of lights of different wavelengths being applied and penetrating the skin. The pulses of light result in reduced redness, swelling, and tenderness. It also helps improve hyperpigmented scars that arise from acne, as well as dark spots.
How Does IPL Treatment Affect Me?
IPL treatment for rosacea is a non-invasive treatment with many benefits. There is no downtime. After treatment, one can return to regular activities immediately. It shows instant results, but some may require a few sessions for hyperpigmentation to be gone entirely.
Is This Treatment Safe?
IPL treatment is one of the safest and most effective ways to treat rosacea (FDA approved). It’s also the most tolerated because it doesn’t involve the use of any incisions.
So, why are you waiting? Treat your rosacea during the summer with IPL to prevent it from flaring up. Feel confident and comfortable in your skin. It’s one of the best treatments out there and is highly recommended by dermatologists all around the world.
