The good news is Dr. Kamani of Kitsilano Medical Aesthetics can use IPL to alleviate the inflammation, redness, pimples and uneven skin tone caused by rosacea. IPL, also called photo facial therapy, is a proven skin-rejuvenating treatment that helps alleviates many common skin issues and can provide gradual, long-lasting improvement in the skin's appearance for rosacea sufferers.

What are the symptoms of rosacea?

Rosacea is a prevalent skin condition that causes flushing or long-term facial redness. Five common symptoms include:

- Rash and redness
- Pus-filled bumps

- Eye-irritation
- Skin thickening and a bulbous nose.

Common Triggers include:

- Excessive heat
- Spicy food
- Alcohol
- Stress

Treating Rosacea with IPL in Vancouver

By using light-based treatments with specific wavelengths, Dr. Kamani can control facial inflammation caused by rosacea. Studies have shown that IPL is effective for visibly improving the appearance of the skin by reducing or completely eliminating the effects of rosacea in 75%-80% of patients after treatment. The light energy in IPL targets pigmented and damaged skin cells in the dermis, breaking them down so they're naturally absorbed by the body. A series of treatments is often needed one month apart.

Results aren't immediately apparent; it takes about a week for most patients to see the results. The treated area may initially appear slightly red, swollen, and sensitive for a few hours. Patients should avoid the sun and use sun protection while the skin recovers. However, as a non-invasive procedure with no downtime, patients can return to their daily activities immediately after the procedure.

Anyone experiencing discomfort or self-consciousness caused by rosacea may benefit from IPL. Dr. Kamani can offer a consultation and create a treatment plan for patients who want to achieve a more radiant, even-looking complexion.
