Facial flushing and visible blood vessels are two of the most common symptoms of rosacea.
While serums, creams, and lotions can help limit flare-ups, they require daily application and, even then, may be limited in their efficacy.
Fortunately, women and men can safely and effectively fix rosacea with IPL.
Continue reading to learn all about this noninvasive light-based technology, including how it works and what patients can expect should they decide to undergo an IPL treatment.
What Is IPL?
IPL, also known as Intense Pulsed Light, photofacial, and photorejuvenation, is a noninvasive treatment designed to target and filter discoloration from the skin.
It is especially well-suited to rosacea, visible blood vessels, diffuse redness, broken capillaries, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and age spots.
How to Fix Rosacea with IPL
If you want to fix rosacea with IPL, you may be interested in learning exactly how the treatment works.
To target vascular issues like rosacea, diffuse redness, and broken capillaries, IPL emits a broad spectrum of multiple light wavelengths.
This energy is absorbed by hemoglobin in blood vessels in order to neutralize flushing effects and even-out skin tone.
What Can Patients Expect from an IPL Treatment?
During an IPL treatment, patients wear protective goggles as a handheld device delivers bursts of light to the skin.
Most individuals liken an IPL pulse to a rubber band lightly snapping against the skin.
Treatment takes just 20-30 minutes and doesn’t require any downtime. As such, patients are able to return to work and resume normal activities right away.
While mild redness or swelling are possible, these effects are temporary and usually resolve within a few hours.
How Many IPL Sessions Will I Need?
In order to adequately fix rosacea with IPL, patients typically need a series of two-to-three treatments, spaced four weeks apart.
