Health insurance companies generally cover oral and topical prescription treatments for rosacea, but sometimes they don't cover laser or IPL therapy. IPL can be very effective for the redness and redness component of rosacea. By treating the blood vessels that cause rosacea, the vascular response decreases. We have seen dramatic results in patients with rosacea even in patients suffering from itching and burning sensations.
After several treatments, your symptoms often go away. While IPL therapy will not “cure rosacea”, it will significantly treat the physical component of the disease process. Unlike other laser treatments, intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy uses many wavelengths to treat the skin. IPL works to reduce pigmentation and treat uneven skin tone.
Rosacea can be effectively treated with intense pulsed light (IPL). IPL uses controlled light at specific wavelengths to relieve inflammation, redness, pimples, and uneven skin tones caused by the condition. IPL offers a gentle and long-lasting solution for rosacea sufferers by providing a gradual and natural improvement in the appearance of the skin. The effectiveness of IPL may depend on what you want the treatment to arrange.
These options can also treat skin blemishes, fine lines, and redness. Spot Check Clinic uses broadband light (BBL), a relatively new form of IPL that enables rapid treatments without downtime. An IPL photofacial uses several wavelengths of light energy, similar to a camera flash, resulting in a deeper and more meaningful skin rejuvenation treatment. You should notice improvement only a few days after the first treatment, but optimal results will be seen with 3 to 6 treatments scheduled about 1 month apart.
Newer IPL devices work just as well as laser treatments for some cosmetic treatments, such as discoloration of blood vessels in the skin. Discuss all your options with your skincare specialist, including benefits, risks and costs, to decide if IPL or other treatment will work best for you. After each treatment and between treatments, it is essential to protect your skin from the sun; wear a wide zinc base SPF50 and a hat or cap. All photos show patients before and after treatment with BBL (broadband light), the form of IPL used at Spot Check Clinic.
