Did you know that over 14 million Americans have some form of Rosacea? This condition causes red patches of skin, often on the face, neck, and chest. While the exact cause is unknown, certain environmental factors are known to trigger it like temperature changes, drinking alcohol, and sun exposure. It may not respond well to over the counter creams or lotions, but we have a few treatment options here at Synergy that do work! Let’s discuss them.

IPL Laser Treatment For Rosacea

IPL (intense pulsed light) laser treatment is considered to be one of the most effective ways to address pigmentation on the skin – and that includes redness. We use the modular M22 system by Lumenis. This versatile platform allows us to tailor treatment specifically to your unique needs. IPL works because the light energy targets pigmentation in the deeper layers of the skin and breaks it up. Over the next several weeks, your body clears out the damaged cells through the lymphatic system, leaving behind clear skin. In addition to directly eliminating pigment, the light energy also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. One of the major benefits of this type of treatment is that it works on the deeper levels of skin while leaving the surface untouched. As a result, you won’t experience the downtime of redness and peeling that comes with other laser treatments.

Microneedling

One of our favorite all around treatments, microneedling is truly one of the most simple, yet powerful options out there for skin transformation. It works by stimulating your body to produce collagen and elastin through making micro-injuries in the skin with tiny needles. For people with mild to moderate rosacea, we recommend at least 4 treatments to see the best results.

Opus Plasma Skin Resurfacing

Another very effective treatment for rosacea is the Opus Plasma. This unique procedure uses fractional plasma technology and radiofrequency (RF) energy to create tiny channels in the skin. Then, just like microneedling, your body immediately begins produces collagen and elastin to quickly repair the area. Over the next few weeks, skin issues like fine lines/wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and scarring start to improve.
