Excel V laser treatment, or the Vascular Laser, is great for acne rosacea flare-ups. Rosacea usually occurs when specific triggers prompt the blood vessels in the face to expand, leading to facial redness. Typical triggers include sun exposure, physical exertion, warm weather, emotional stress, spicy foods, alcohol consumption, and hot baths. Laser therapy uses powerful beams of light aimed at the skin and blood vessels, which helps to reduce redness, lessen visible veins, and ease inflammation.

This treatment method can significantly improve the appearance of the skin, promoting a smoother and more even complexion. It is particularly beneficial for individuals who have not responded well to topical or oral treatments (multiple sessions may be required for optimal results). Laser treatment therapy offers a solution for managing the visible symptoms of acne rosacea, providing long-lasting relief and enhancing the quality of life for affected individuals.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to treat acne when you have rosacea?

Rosacea laser treatments offer an effective solution for managing the symptoms of rosacea. By precisely directing energy into the affected areas, the treatment helps reduce redness, minimise visible blood vessels, and reduce inflammation associated with rosacea.

The treatment is highly customisable, with dermatologists and laser specialists tailoring them to each patient’s specific needs. While multiple sessions may be required, downtime is usually minimal, allowing patients to resume their daily activities quickly.

What happens during the rosacea acne laser treatment?

During rosacea acne laser treatment, a patient typically experiences the following steps and processes:

Preparation: The patient is often asked to cleanse their face to remove makeup, creams, and oils. The clinician may apply a cooling gel to the treatment area to enhance the effectiveness of the laser and minimise discomfort.

Eye Protection: To shield the eyes from the laser’s intense light, the patient, as well as the treatment provider, wear protective goggles.

Laser Application: The laser is precisely adjusted to target the specific characteristics of rosacea, such as blood vessels or redness. The laser energy is absorbed by the targeted blood vessels, causing them to constrict or collapse.
Sensation: Patients may feel a warm or tingling sensation during the laser application.

Treatment Area: The treatment area depends on the individual’s rosacea symptoms but typically includes the central part of the face, where redness and visible blood vessels are most prominent.

Multiple Sessions: Rosacea laser treatment usually involves a series of sessions scheduled a few weeks apart. The number of sessions required depends on the severity of the rosacea.
Post-Treatment Care: After the session, patients may experience mild redness and swelling, similar to a sunburn, which usually subsides within a day or two.

Results: Over the following weeks and months, patients typically notice a reduction in redness and visible blood vessels. The skin may appear smoother and more even-toned. The full results often become most apparent after completing the recommended series of treatments.

It’s important to consult with one of our specialist team members who can assess your specific condition and determine the most suitable laser type and treatment plan for your rosacea symptoms. Laser therapy can be an effective option for managing rosacea, providing noticeable improvements in skin appearance and comfort.

What should I expect after the treatment?

After undergoing rosacea treatment, you can anticipate some redness and mild discomfort, similar to a sunburn, which typically subsides within a few days. Multiple sessions may be required for optimal results. It’s essential to follow post-treatment care instructions provided by our experts and continue with gentle skincare and sun protection to maintain the benefits of the treatment. Results may vary depending on the severity of your condition, but many patients experience a noticeable improvement in their skin’s appearance and comfort.
