Is laser resurfacing safe on rosacea?
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition where there is flushing of the face accompanied by spider veins and for some, acne. This condition is often quite embarrassing and unfortunately, topical therapy offers little relief. Laser treatments that target the redness and spider veins have been shown to be incredibly effective. Laser resurfacing, such as Fraxel, doesn’t address the redness in the skin or veins. We offer Laser Facials and Laser Genesis as effective rosacea treatments. They are performed in a series of 4 to 6 monthly treatments, with no downtime, minimal discomfort, and are maintained every 3 to 6 months as this is a chronic condition. The laser treatments also help treat the acne.
